Construction on Bjarke Ingels Group‘s 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, is around one-third of its full architectural height. The massive $3.7 billion Hudson Yards supertall is being built directly across the street to the north of Foster + Partners‘ 50 Hudson Yards, which has been rising neck and neck with BIG’s 66-story design throughout most of 2020. Tishman Speyer is the developer, Turner Construction Company is the construction manager, and Banker Steel is in charge of manufacturing the steel for the 1,031-foot-tall skyscraper.
Exterior work is progressing on The West, a 12-story residential building at 547 West 47th Street in Hell’s Kitchen. Located between West 47th Street and West 48th Street, the 201,000-square-foot project is designed by Concrete and developed by Ironstate Development, CB Developers, and SK Development Group, which purchased the property for $93 million in the summer of 2018. The developers are aiming for LEED certification.
YIMBY checked in on the site of the ten-story Hudson Arts Building at 220 Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea. Designed by Studios Architecture and developed by The Moinian Group, the structure will occupy an entire block between West 25th Street and West 26th Street. JLL is the exclusive leasing agent for the project, which is expected to welcome tenants by 2022.
Exterior work is moving along at Eleven Hancock, a 12-story residential building at 362 West 125th Street in Harlem. The 130,000-square-foot project is designed by Isaac & Stern Architects and developed by Nortco Development, which purchased the plot and 27,500 square feet of development rights for $28.5 million four years ago. Lemay + Escobar is responsible for the interior design and the Krantz + Krantz Team of Halstead Development Marketing is handling sales for the 71 units, which will consist of studio, one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom layouts.
Construction has topped out on One East Harlem, a 19-story mixed-use building at 201 East 125th Street in Harlem. Designed by S9 Architecture, the reinforced concrete structure prominently rises above its surroundings and will yield over 420,000 square feet of newly built space. Work broke ground last summer and required the demolition of a couple low-rise structures occupying the site. Richman Group Development, Bridges Development Group, and Monadnock Development are the developers of the project, and received a mix of public and private funding from Citigroup, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and the New York City Housing Development Corporation.
