Construction on Queens Plaza Park, aka 27-29 Queens Plaza North, is starting to rise above street level in Long Island City. The concave southern wall of the 67-story tower, which is also addressed as 29-37 41st Avenue, is taking shape. Reinforced concrete floors have begun to make their way toward the 755-foot-tall pinnacle. Foundations were completed in December, and work has now passed the second floor. The 978,000-square-foot project is being designed by Handel Architects; The Durst Organization is the developer of the building. Selldorf Architects will be designing the interiors.
An updated preliminary rendering has been revealed for 41-05 29th Street. The site is located in Long Island City, Queens and will eventually be home to a 24-story mixed-use residential development with ground-floor retail. An excavator and a piling machine were also seen on the triangular corner lot. The property sits at the confluence of 29th Street and 41st Avenue and also happens to be located across the street from Queens Plaza Park, which will become the second-tallest building in the downtown neighborhood upon completion. The tower at 41-05 29th Street is being designed by Fogarty Finger and developed by SB Development Group.
Progress at 43-12 Hunter Street, now referred to as Triangle, has been moving along since the residential building recently topped out over Long Island City. The exterior curtain wall panels are about to reach the main setback near the halfway point of the 18-story reinforced concrete tower. The project is being designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Rockrose Development, which purchased the site for $1 million all the way back in 2006. Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design.
Construction has topped out at 828 Park Avenue, a five-story residential project in Hoboken, New Jersey. Designed by Nastasi Architects and developed by Hudson Place Realty, the property is located between Eighth Street and Ninth Street, near Hoboken High School and Stevens Institute of Technology. The site was once a narrow vacant lot between two existing brownstones. The new building’s design integrates with the adjacent white-colored structure to the north, resulting in a singular edifice that preserves the original facade.
Construction at 106 West 56th Street is ascending quickly. The multiple setbacks of the building’s northern elevation are beginning to take shape as the steel climbs toward its 403-foot planned height. The 27-story office tower is being designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by private equity firm Savanna Fund, along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets. The site is located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue, just one block south of 57th Street, aka Billionaires’ Row. The closest subway is the F train at the 57 Street station on Sixth Avenue, while the N, Q, R, and W trains are to the west on Seventh Avenue and West 57th Street.
