Construction has quickly risen past the halfway mark on 3041 Broadway, a 42-story mixed-use tower designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects in Morningside Heights. Alternately addressed as 100 Claremont Avenue, the project is being developed by L&M Development Partners and Lendlease with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and will yield 350,000 square feet with condominiums as well as institutional offices, faculty housing, and classrooms for the Union Theological Seminary. Beyer Blinder Belle is handling the renovations of Union Theological Seminary’s Hastings Hall, where students reside. The property is located by the corner of Claremont Avenue and West 122nd Street, directly across from Riverside Church, and the tower is being constructed with the use of air rights from the seminary.
Excavation has begun at 27-19 Thomson Avenue, the site of a ten-story, 30-unit building in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Thomson Development LLC with Warner Construction Services Inc. handling construction, the 28,051-square-foot property will yield 23,012 square feet of residential space and 5,039 square feet of lower-level retail. The 116-foot-tall structure will rise from a 3,600-square-foot plot bound by Thomson Avenue to the south and 44th Drive to the northeast that was purchased for $6.85 million in 2018. Demolition of the site’s former low-rise occupant concluded in early 2019.
Curtain wall installation is wrapping up on One Bell Slip, a 31-story residential tower in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Brookfield Property Partners and Park Tower Group, the 369-foot-tall structure will yield 413 units spread across 292,029 square feet, as well as 992 square feet of commercial space on the lower floors. The project is located at the corner of Bell Slip and Commercial Street along the Newtown Creek and East River waterfront, and is part of the massive Greenpoint Landing riverfront development.
Construction is rising rapidly on The Nova, a 24-story residential project at 41-05 29th Street in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by Fogarty Finger and developed by SB Development Group, the 290-foot-tall structure will yield 86 homes and ground-floor retail space on a triangular plot at the confluence of 29th Street and 41st Avenue. The developers recently secured a construction loan from SCALE Lending worth $55 million to complete the project.
Exterior work is nearing the closing stages on Parcel G, a 34-story residential building in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the 443-unit tower stands alongside Parcel F, its taller sibling, and is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue. Parcel F will have a number of units dedicated to affordable housing, as well as a community facility for Flux Factory and kayak rentals on the lower levels of the edifice. Both towers occupy a formally empty plot perched atop a hill overlooking the Hunters Point South Park Extension. This 1.5-acre tidal marsh has winding walkways, green lawns, boardwalks, and lush landscaping, all carefully designed as a buffer against storm surges.
