The terracotta and bronze façade has reached the bottom of the steel crown of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street, the second-tallest project in YIMBY’s construction countdown. Developed by JDS Development, Property Markets Group, and Spruce Capital Partners, the 1,428-foot-tall residential skyscraper features a height-to-width ratio of 24:1, making it the most slender building in the world. A total of 46 condominiums will be created and marketed by Douglas Elliman. Studio Sofield is the interior designer.
Work is moving along steadily on Kohn Pedersen Fox’s One Vanderbilt, number three in YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in the city. Developed by SL Green, the 77-story, 1,401-foot-tall commercial office skyscraper is tallest structure in Midtown East and the tallest project realized so far in the Midtown East rezoning initiative. TD Bank is signed on as the anchor tenant of the 1.75-million-square-foot property, which is due to open in August of 2020.
Workers are forming the last floors of an eight-story, ten-unit building at 128 East 28th Street in NoMad. The low-rise residential building made quick progress since YIMBY checked in on the site in June, when excavation was still ongoing. TRA Studio is the designer and Sinha Development is the developer of the 80-foot-tall, 21,038-square-foot project.
Work is wrapping up on The Edge observation deck at 30 Hudson Yards in preparation for a March 11, 2020 opening date. Cantilevering 80 feet out above Tenth Avenue at an elevation of 1,131 feet, The Edge is the highest outdoor observation deck in the Western Hemisphere. The platform protrudes from the sloped eastern elevation of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed commercial office building, which at 1,296 feet tall comes in at number four in our countdown of the tallest buildings being constructed in New York City. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the developers of the supertall, which is also the tallest structure in first phase of Hudson Yards.
Demolition work is continuing at 270 Park Avenue, where JP Morgan Chase is tearing down its current 707-foot-tall headquarters to construct a new 1,425-foot-tall, 2.5-million-square-foot home. Designed by Foster + Partners, the future Midtown East supertall is the fifth-tallest project underway in New York City.
