SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street recently reached another milestone as work has commenced on the installation of the transparent paneling on the supertall’s steel crown. This is the final major external component of the world’s most slender skyscraper, which is developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners. The 1,428-foot-tall tower will contain 46 condominiums designed by Studio Sofield and marketed by Douglas Elliman.
YIMBY went to check out the site of 251 West 14th Street in Chelsea, where work on an 11-story residential building appears to have stalled. The bottom floors and lower section of the superstructure have been completed, while construction has yet to reach the cantilevering top floors. Isay Weinfield collaborated with FORM4 Design Studio PLLC to design the project. Pizzarotti is in charge of the build, which is expected to yield a total of 25 condominiums.
The Port Chester Planning Commission and members of the public will soon review proposals for a new nine-story mixed-use building in the village’s downtown area. The public hearing is scheduled for January 27, when Sarrazin Architecture and members of the development team are expected to present the project, which is located at 30 Broad Street and 136 Irving Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 14-story residential building at 3054 Villa Avenue in Jerome Park, The Bronx. Located between Bedford Park Boulevard and East 204th Street, the lot is one block from the Bedford Park Boulevard subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Tony Savarese under the St. Philip Neri Apartments LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications. The St. Philip Neri Apartments consist of 3054 Villa Aven with 3069 Villa Avenue are part of the 866 affordable housing units in the Bronx by Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Catholic Charities.
Construction has topped out at 532 West 20th Street in Chelsea. The 11-story residential development rose quickly since YIMBY’s last update in August 2019, when only the first few floors were built. Located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue, the project is designed by design-build firm DDG, which purchased the plot for $24.25 million in 2014. The building will contain 27,019 square feet of residential space divided into nine apartments, averaging 3,000 square feet apiece.
