Work on the exterior of 99 Hudson Street is nearing completion. The external mechanical hoist has been dismantled and the remaining Jura limestone and glass panels are filling up the vertical strips in the curtain wall of Jersey City‘s tallest skyscraper. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by COA 99 Hudson, LLC, the topped-out 900-foot-tall residential tower soars prominently above the Hudson River waterfront and is clearly visible from Manhattan. Plaza Construction is in charge of building the 79-story project and Vidaris is overseeing the exterior envelope. The perimeter of the podium that contains the parking garage is also being enclosed with decorative metal panels.
Work is progressing on the glass and concrete crown atop 200 Amsterdam Avenue. The topped-out residential skyscraper stands 668 feet high above the Upper West Side and has secured the title of tallest structure in the neighborhood. The 51-story building is designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects and developed by SJP Properties. CetraRuddy is the lead interior designer for the 283,000-square-foot project.
A new rendering with a slightly modified exterior design has been posted on the construction fence of 25 Columbus Drive, along with a new name: The Charlotte. Meanwhile, work on the ground level of the 626-foot-tall Jersey City property is underway. The 57-story skyscraper is designed by Handel Architects and being developed by Mack-Cali, with Fogarty Finger as the interior architect. The structure will contain a total of 750 rental apartments, a 35,000-square-foot privately funded public school for pre-K through first grade, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza.
A large amount of black netting and scaffolding is going up on all sides of the limestone and terracotta curtain wall of the Flatiron Building as it embarks on a nearly yearlong renovation. Designed by Daniel Burhnam, the 117-year-old steel-framed landmark is a classic example of the old New York architecture and continues to draw people from around the world to take in its iconic prow at the intersection of Broadway and Fifth Avenue.
Work is wrapping up on the exterior of The Lively at 321 Warren Street in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District as the 18-story, mixed-use structure nears completion. Designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC, the box-shaped, light-colored structure will contain 180 apartments, 1,343 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a 14,200-square-foot black-box theater with dedicated space for local artists. The property sits in the heart of downtown Jersey City, steps away from the Grove Street PATH station.
