Financial support has been acquired for the construction of a new Midtown development, putting verticality one step closer to reality. 611 West 56th Street will rise 35 floors above the far end of Midtown’s Billionaire’s Row. Just a block away from West 57th Street, the project is another step in the redevelopment of the long-forlorn area. It will join new buildings like Via at 625 West 57th Street, the rising towers of Waterline Square, and The Max, a nearly complete mega-development on the same block. Sumaida + Khurana and LENY are responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 177 East Mosholu Parkway North, in Norwood, The Bronx. The site is right across from the landscaped area around the Mosholu Parkway. Just three blocks away is the Williamsbridge Oval Recreation Center. The 205th Street subway station is six blocks away, end of the line for the D trains. Queens-based M Development NYC is behind the applications.
While Manhattan’s construction boom is now resulting in towers crossing the 1,000-foot mark on what seems to be a monthly basis, the first near-supertall across the Hudson is also making rapid progress. 99 Hudson Street has officially crossed the halfway point to its final height of 900 feet. Once complete, the building will become the tallest skyscraper in both Jersey City, and all of New Jersey. Even at under 500′, the tower is already making an impact on the skyline, as seen from Lower Manhattan and the surrounding real estate fronting New York Harbor.
Permits have been filed for a twelve-story mixed-use building at 1661 Westchester Avenue, in the Soundview neighborhood of The Bronx. The site is two blocks away from the Morrison Avenue-Soundview subway station, serviced by the 6 trains. Not-for-profit Phipps Houses will be responsible for the development. Their mission has been to provide children, youth, and families that live in low-income neighborhoods with rental housing accompanied by support to help tenants thrive through comprehensive education and career programs, as well as facilitating access to community services.
Until recently, Prospect Lefferts Gardens was mostly overlooked by developers busy constructing high-rise, high-value residential towers in other sought-after Brooklyn neighborhoods. Permits filed at 319 Lenox Road, however, are the latest in a slew of new mid to high-rise developments taking shape in the landmarked, historic district.
