The first stages of excavation at 25 Columbus Drive are apparent as the asphalt from the former parking lot is now being ripped up. This will become the future site of a new mixed-use complex that will rise 626 feet tall and 57 floors high. Handel Architects is designing the proposed structure, while Mack Cali is the developer of the downtown Jersey City project. A total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately-funded public school for levels pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza will soon be built.
The red- and white-brick facade of 187 Kent Avenue is starting to be unveiled now that the structure has topped-out at 85 feet above street level. Black netting and scaffolding are slowly revealing the curtain wall on the upper floors of the southern and western elevations. The seven-story, mixed-use residential project is being developed by CW Realty Management, who previously purchased the Williamsburg site for $43 million. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record for the Brooklyn complex, which will yield 140,036 square feet of space.
Aerial images of The Standard in New Rochelle, New York reveal façade and exterior detailing has nearly wrapped at the new high-rise building, which will further anchor the ongoing renaissance in the vicinity. The photos come courtesy of Karen Hessel, posted on the YIMBY Forums.
Construction is in full swing at 90 New Street, a new high-rise residential development that will debut as The Standard at New Brunswick in New Jersey. A portion of the structure’s concrete core now towers above the city’s downtown center, and will soon top-out at 247 feet above street level, a milestone which it appears to have nearly reached.
The site of 7 West 57th Street sits directly adjacent to the SOM-designed Solow Building, aka 9 West 57th Street. Construction on the 19-story reinforced concrete structure has now topped-out, and glass panels on the main southern elevation are nearing completion. The 237-foot-tall tower is being designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Sheldon Solow, the chairman of Solow Realty & Development Group. 7 West 57th Street is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenue along Billionaire’s Row. Upper units will clear the roof heights of the surrounding urbanity, and will obtain north-facing views of Central Park.
