The rapid pace of construction at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, finally reached the 65-story, 1,031-foot-tall pinnacle over Hudson Yards this past Tuesday. Despite a light flurry of snow showers, the dedication ceremony was successfully held with Tishman Speyer President and CEO Rob Speyer joined on by Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, Peter Davoren, President and CEO of Turner Construction Company and a group of trade partners. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the steel-framed superstructure is located on a full-block parcel bound by Tenth and Eleventh Avenues and 34th and 35th Streets, and will yield 2.8 million square feet of office space.
The Department of Buildings has awarded Norman Foster’s 425 Park Avenue a temporary certificate of occupancy, or TCO, signaling imminent completion of the commercial skyscraper in Midtown East. From developers L&L Holding Company, Tokyu Land Corporation, and co-managing partner BentallGreenOak, the 47-story office tower comprises around 667,000 square feet.
Exterior work is progressing on 425 Park Avenue, an 897-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown East and number 12 on YIMBY’s construction countdown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by L&L Holding Company LLC with Adamson Associates, the 47-story tower will yield 666,966 square feet of office space.
This Turkey Week, YIMBY is taking a look at some of the most prominent projects in the New York City area that have either started and stopped, or stalled altogether. We begin with the American Dream Mall, a project with a notoriously rocky history that is finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
Closing are now underway at Greenwich West, a new condominium property in Hudson Square, Manhattan. Located at 110 Charlton Street, the building is designed by Francoise Raynaud of Loci Anima and Adamson Associates and features 170 loft-style residences.
