Today YIMBY has the reveal for The Rowan, a new ground-up condominium project coming to 21-21 31st Street, in the Ditmars section of Astoria, Queens.. Designed by New York City’s DXA Studio, The building will feature a terraced massing of light gray masonry that rests above a glass-encased retail base.
New photographs of Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, show the glass climbing even closer to the top of the tallest residential building in New York and the Western Hemisphere. The reinforced concrete structure will soon top out at 1,550 feet. The project is being designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill and developed by Extell, which is expecting a project sellout of $4 billion. The Nordstrom retail component in the podium will open on October 24, 2019.
Work has passed the halfway mark at 460 Main Street, aka Riverwalk 8, one of the newest additions to Roosevelt Island. The 21-story, 341-unit building is designed by Handel Architects and is being developed as a joint venture between The Related Companies and Hudson Companies. This will be the eighth component in the nine-building Riverwalk rental complex. Groundbreaking occurred earlier this year and topping out should happen sometime by the end of the year.
In an exclusive reveal, Spitzer Enterprises and Citi Habitats have released new renderings of the amenity spaces within the second and final phase of 420 Kent in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. This phase includes the addition of two high-rise towers to the sprawling rental complex.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 1520 Broadway in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn. Located on the corner of Hancock Street and Broadway, the lot is steps away from the Halsey Street subway station, serviced by the J train. MacQuesten Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
