Construction is underway on the 33rd floor of the 41-story, 223-unit mixed-use building under development at 38-46 West 33rd Street, in Midtown South. Progress on the structure, which includes façade installation, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower, upon completion, will encompass 220,724 square feet and rise 404 feet to its upper roof, not including bulkhead elements.
38 West 33rd Street
Construction is now two stories above street level on the 41-story, 223-unit mixed-use building under development at 38-46 West 33rd Street, in Midtown South. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by user nyc1. The new building will encompass 220,724 square feet and will top out at 465-feet-tall. There will be 5,721 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units averaging 818.6 square feet apiece, which is indicative of rental apartments. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s update in January, when foundation work was underway. The Torkian Group is the developer and Stephen B. Jacobs Group is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.
It was way back in September of 2014 that YIMBY reported on filings for a new residential building at 38-46 West 33rd Street (a.k.a. 38 West 33rd Street), in Midtown South. Then in June of 2015, we revealed a rendering of the project. In September, the Torkian Group development got financed by a $105 million loan. Now, the project’s scope is slightly bigger and construction is underway, which we can see in a pair of photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
