YIMBY spotted a series of new and updated interior and exterior renderings by DBOX of Penn 15, a massive 1,270-foot supertall designed by Foster + Partners at 15 Penn Plaza. The mammoth 2.8 million-square-foot, 57-story office project is being developed by Vornado Realty Trust and is part of the much larger 7.4 million-square-foot Penn District master plan in Midtown, Manhattan. The redevelopment aims to transform and revitalize the area between Sixth and Seventh Avenues and West 32nd and West 34th Streets with a total of eight new buildings. All of which would surround the 109-year-old James A. Farley Building and Skidmore Owings & Merrill‘s newly opened Moynihan Train Hall, as well as One and Two Penn Plaza and Madison Square Garden, which itself has also seen grandiose proposals to be re-imagined.
Construction is rising on 30-05 Vernon Boulevard, a seven-story residential building in Astoria, Queens. Designed by Future Expansion Architects and developed by Joint Venture LLC, the structure will yield 67 units as well as ground-floor retail space.

YIMBY went to check out the views from the 44th floor of the 475-foot-tall 52-41 Center Boulevard, the shorter building in ODA Architects‘ two-tower complex in Hunters Point, Queens. Its sibling is the 587-foot-tall 52-03 Center Boulevard to the north. Both edifices rise along the East River waterfront on a parcel bound by Center Boulevard to the west, Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east, and 54th Avenue to the south. SLCE Architects served as the architect of record for the 46- and 56-story mixed-use towers that are part of TF Cornerstone‘s Hunters Point South development.
Exterior work is nearing completion on Park House, an eight-story residential building at 500 West 22nd Street in West Chelsea. Alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue, the 33,662-square-foot structure is designed by Annabelle Selldorf of Selldorf Architects for Brantwood Capital and will yield ten residential units and 1,959 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Compass is handling sales and marketing for the homes, which range from one- to four-bedroom units and two duplex penthouses, with pricing from $2.65 million to $12 million. The corner property is located at the intersection of Tenth Avenue and West 22nd Street, a short distance from the High Line. Foundations Group is the general contractor.
