Permits have been filed for a ten-story commercial building at 264 West 46th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. The lot also addressed as 740 Eighth Avenue, is located at the intersection of Eighth Avenue and West 46th Street, and has been speculated to be the site of a supertall. Extell is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 164-foot-tall development will likely be the podium for a future supertall, yielding 303,365 square feet, with 194,552 square feet designated for commercial space. The steel-based structure will also have a cellar, two sub-cellars, and two penthouses. Additional permits are expected to be filed.
Mario Yao of SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record.
Just a short walk south is the Times Square-42 Street subway station, serviced by the A, C, E, N, Q, R, W, S, 1, 2, 3, and 7 trains. The buses at the Port Authority Bus Terminal are also within walking distance.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
