One Boerum Place has topped out in Downtown Brooklyn. The slim reinforced concrete superstructure recently reached its 21-story parapet, and work is now shifting to the installation of its brick masonry façade. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Avery Hall Investments, Allegra Holdings, and Aria Development Group, the residential building sits on a narrow plot of land bound by Boerum Place, Red Hook Lane, and Fulton Street. The project is expected to cost around $250 million.
Construction nears completion at 22-44 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, a two-tower residential development on the plot of the famous 5Pointz graffiti warehouse. The 1.21-million-square-foot complex is designed by HTO Architects and developed by G&M Realty. Mojo Stumer Associates is designing the buildings’ interiors, which will feature artistic homages to the site’s past.
Construction is approaching the final floors at 52-41 Center Boulevard, a 475-foot-tall residential tower in the Hunters Point South Towers development in Hunters Point, Queens. Designed by ODA Architecture and developed by TF Cornerstone with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the 46-story, 394-unit structure stands to the south of its rising sibling, 52-03 Center Boulevard, which will eventually stand 56 stories and 587 feet tall.
YIMBY has another set of illustrative renderings created by Siniaevart that showcase the three alternate conceptual building massings for 250 Water Street, a proposed skyscraper project from The Howard Hughes Corporation in the South Street Seaport District. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the full-block development has the potential to use 700,000 square feet of unused air rights to achieve supertall status, which would make it the tallest structure in Lower Manhattan outside of the World Trade Center complex.
When it comes to new development in New York City, one of the most prolific and notable of the current firms in existence is The Durst Organization, which previously led the construction of One World Trade Center in a public-private partnership with The Port Authority. YIMBY recently interviewed its eponymous head, Douglas Durst, who gave updates on the firm’s major new Long Island City project, dubbed Sven, as well as a range of other topics.
