The modestly tall superstructure of 1245 Broadway recently reached its 23-story summit. The ground-up office development is designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill at the corner of West 31st Street and Broadway, and is among one of several new projects being built in NoMad. Co-developed by GDSNY and Sweden-based Klovern, the 318-foot-tall building will bring 200,000 square feet of commercial space. StructureTech NY and Triton Construction are in charge of construction, and CBRE began leasing the class A office space in late 2019.
The concrete façade of 532 West 20th Street has recently been revealed as the black netting and scaffolding was disassembled from the 11-story residential project in Chelsea. Designed by design-build firm DDG, which purchased the plot for $24.25 million in 2014, the structure will yield 27,019 square feet of residential space divided into nine apartments, averaging 3,000 square feet apiece.
Construction is approaching topping out at 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten-story office building in Greenwich Village. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Sang Lee, Noviprop, and Plus Development, the 120-foot-tall edifice will yield 30,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail. The project site is located at the corner of West 14th Street and Eighth Avenue.
Construction has topped out at 540 Sixth Avenue, a 12-story condominium building in Chelsea. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Landsea Homes and DNA Development, the structure will yield 50 units across 80,000 square feet of residential space, with sales and marketing led by Douglas Elliman. The property, which is located at the corner of West 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, will also feature ground-floor retail space.
Landscaping work is continuing on Little Island, Thomas Heatherwick‘s 2.4-acre Hudson River park at Pier 55 in Chelsea. More trees and greenery have been delivered and planted across the undulating mass of reinforced concrete and steel. The project, which was conceived to resemble a leaf floating on water, is being managed by the Hudson River Park Trust (HRPT), with landscape design by MNLA.
