Back in June, YIMBY uncovered the first full renderings for a new condominium tower that will rise at 15 East 30th Street, or 126 Madison Avenue, in Midtown South. At the time, excavation was just wrapping up. Now, the latest photos from JC_Heights show that foundation work is complete, which means the 51-story and 756-foot-tall tower should soon begin climbing into the skyline.
Back in 2015, YIMBY revealed the renderings for a new development coming to the corner of 86th Street and Lexington Avenue, with an official address of 147 East 86th Street. In February of 2016, building applications were filed for the site, and now, demolition is complete on the old Petco, paving the way for construction to begin on the project.
Before the 57th Street supertall boom began, the corridor had relatively few icons. But among those few, Sheldon Solow’s 9 West 57th Street stands as one of the most monumental buildings in all of Midtown, and also one of the most expensive. Now, the developer is building a smaller residential tower next door, at 7 West 57th Street, and the project’s designers, Hill West Architects, have sent along a rendering of what it will soon look like.
Yesterday, YIMBY featured a first glimpse at the plans for 76 8th Avenue, on the corner of 14th Street, at the crossroads of the Meatpacking District and the West Village. Today, we have the full rendering for the project, designed by Gene Kaufman, which will dramatically improve a corner that has long been under-built.
