On the 21st anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the final component of the rebuilt 16-acre World Trade Center site is coming to a close as work nears completion on the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center, a new performance hall in the Financial District. Designed by REX with Davis Brody Bond Architects as the executive architect and developed by The Perelman, the 138-foot-tall structure stands on a plot bound by Vesey Street to the north, Fulton Street to the south, Greenwich Street to the east, and Skidmore Owings & Merrill‘s One World Trade Center to the west.
Façade installation has begun on 282-286 Grand Street, a seven-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Developed by Marc Straus, who has owned the site since the 1970s, the 23,500-square-foot structure will yield 25 rental apartments spread across 22,500 square feet and 1,000 square feet of commercial space. First Standard Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Forsyth and Eldridge Streets.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s newest food hall is now open to the public in the Tin Building, a historic three-story building at 96 South Street in the Seaport District. Designed by Roman & Williams and developed by The Howard Hughes Corporation, the 53,000-square-foot structure was dismantled from its original location along the East River and rebuilt 32 feet away, directly adjacent to the SHoP-designed Pier 17. The $200 million project features six full-service restaurants, six fast-casual counters, four bars, a grocery store, and private dining space, all spread across two floors. The property is located off Fulton Street to the east of South Street and the FDR Drive.
Foundation work is progressing at 600 West 125th Street, the site of a 34-story tower on Columbia University‘s Manhattanville campus. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop with CetraRuddy Architecture as the executive architect and developed by the Trustees of Columbia University, the 391-foot-tall structure will yield 175,000 square feet with 141,565 square feet of community facility space, 5,000 square feet of commercial space, and 142 residences for graduate students and faculty. Pavarini Govern is the general contractor and LERA is the structural engineer for the property, which is located at the corner of West 125th Street and Broadway, adjacent to the elevated 125th Street 1 train station. Thornton Tomasetti is serving as the facade consultant.
Curtain wall installation is nearing the parapet of TSX Broadway, a 47-story hotel tower at 1568 Broadway in Times Square. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Mancini Duffy and developed by L&L Holding Company and Fortress Investment Group, the 550,000-square-foot structure will yield 661 hotel rooms, 100,000 square feet of retail space on the lower levels, and a cantilevering outdoor performance stage. The project also involved the restoration and lifting of the historic Palace Theater by PBDW Architects to make room for retail frontage. Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street.
