YIMBY has chronicled the evolution of 217 West 57th Street, aka Nordstrom Tower and officially dubbed Central Park Tower, since it was clearing hurdles for the approval of its cantilever. Now that the building has begun rising, renderings from Extell have finally started leaking online, this time courtesy of EB-5 materials that surfaced on the YIMBY forums. The images show the tower is identical to renderings created in-house by YIMBY previously, and while they confirm the supertall has lost its spire, it will still become the tallest building by roof height on the continent, reaching 1,550 feet tall, and having a marketing floor count of 131.
It’s been a decade since Thor Equities demolished the iconic Revere Sugar Refinery on the Red Hook waterfront. Now, they’ve finally filed plans for a five-story office building on the huge lot at 270 Richards Street, between Van Brunt and Dwight streets.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed the first few renderings of Extell Development’s 252 South Street, on the Lower East Side (in the Two Bridges neighborhood), and now Bloomberg Business has the full reveal for the 80-story tower. Dubbed One Manhattan Square, the building will have more than 800 condominiums, and will feature 50,000 square feet and 40,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities, respectively. Foundation work is well underway, and completion is expected by early 2019. Adam Associates is the architect of record.
In May, YIMBY revealed partial renderings of Extell’s planned residential tower at 250 South Street, and at the time, DOB filings indicated it was to stand 56 stories, spanning 939,850 square feet. Now, according to DNAinfo, permits show a tower closer to the initially proposed building, standing 68 stories and 800 feet tall, and measuring 1,105,386 square feet. The project now includes 802 residential units, and 25,516 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
Extell’s new tower coming to 250 South Street received an on-site rendering a few months ago, but now YIMBY has the first up-close look at the project, as well as a few interiors. The building will rise on the site of an old Pathmark, and while it was initially expected to be 68 stories tall, it was reduced to 56 floors on the latest DOB filings.
