This week YIMBY checked out 75 Nassau Street, the planned site of a striking tree-topped residential skyscraper designed by ODA and developed by Lexin Capital. Located in the Financial District, the plot from which the 498-foot-tall, 312,000-square-foot tower is due to rise currently sits empty, with no recent signs of activity since the demolition of five buildings that once stood on the land.
Work is finishing up on 151 Mercer Street, the new four-story flagship store for Tory Burch. O’Neil Langan Architects designed the 10,000-square-foot SoHo project, which replaces an old two-story garage that formerly occupied the site. Located between West Houston Street and Prince Street, the building’s dark steel cladding and indented windows give it a sleek, modern look that contrasts with the adjacent brick structures and the cobblestone-street aesthetics of the neighborhood.
Construction of 540 Fulton Street is nearing the halfway mark in Downtown Brooklyn, as workers rapidly pour and form the reinforced concrete slabs of the 511-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper. Located near the corner of Fulton Street and Flatbush Avenue, the 43-story building is designed by Marvel Architects and is being developed by Jenel Management. The project will yield about 330,000 square feet, with 71,844 square feet allocated to commercial space and 22,054 square feet designated for retail on the lower floors. The remaining 239,142 square feet will be occupied by residential units.
Work on the 36-story, mixed-use residential tower dubbed One Clinton is continuing to make rapid progress in Brooklyn Heights, and the building’s warm-colored stone façade is now rising. Also known as 280 Cadman Plaza West, the topped-out, triangular-shaped structure is designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Hudson Companies. The 295,000-square-foot project will include 134 residential units and One Clinton Street Library, a new public library that will replace the former Brooklyn Heights Library. The superstructure is situated at the confluence of Clinton Street, Tillary Street, and Cadman Plaza West.
Construction at 200 Amsterdam Avenue has topped out. The residential skyscraper stands 668 feet high above the Upper West Side and has secured the title of tallest structure in the neighborhood, if only temporarily. 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.
