The fast-paced construction of the SOM-designed 35 Hudson Yards is about to reach the roof. A year and a half ago, YIMBY reported on the building reaching the fourth floor. Now, the tower is tantalizingly close to its final, 71st story. The structure appears to have reached supertall heights, thanks to a two-story steel girder installed this week. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are responsible for the development, which is Manhattan’s third new residential supertall of 2018.
Following a trail of sparse details and leaked renderings of Greenpoint’s 18 India Street, the waterfront development appears to finally be moving forward. Fresh filings reveal changes to the expected building area and use type.
Major progress has been made for Dock 72, a 16-story commercial office building rising in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Incredibly, it is the first ground-up office building to rise in Brooklyn since MetroTech in the 1980’s. The development is a joint venture with Rudin Management and Boston Properties, with WeWork co-developing and handling amenities. WeWork will occupy nearly a third of the building.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 169-13 90th Avenue, in Jamaica, Queens. The site is five blocks away from the 169th Street subway station, serviced by the F trains. Om Shakti Temple is behind the applications.
Façade installation is coming to an end for Waterline Square, a five-acre project overlooking the Hudson River. The three towers are being constructed simultaneously so that residents will have the benefit of moving into a finished mini-neighborhood inside the Upper West Side. Once complete, a lush public space will unite the residential buildings and retail center, containing several eateries. GID Development Group is responsible for the venture.
