The prominence of the Hudson Yards district continues to grow, and today, Tishman Speyer has announced the official start of construction for The Spiral. The 1,031-foot tall building will be the fifth supertall added to the area. An event to mark the occasion will be held this afternoon, and will conclude with the planting of a 20-foot Alaskan Cedar tree to serve as Hudson Boulevard & Park’s annual Christmas tree.
The redevelopment of the southwest corner of the West Village by the Hudson River is often overlooked, but that part of the neighborhood is about to get a healthy dose of modernization. One project now under construction is 111 Leroy Street, which will create nine apartments and five townhouses. Work has progressed significantly since our last look, and façade installation appears imminent. Property Markets Group is responsible for the development.
Nicknamed the “Pearl On The Park,” and located next to the Beekman Hotel at 5 Beekman Street and directly adjacent to COOKFOX’s 59-story residential tower rising at 25 Park Row, 1 Beekman Street has officially topped-out at 25 stories in height. Construction has progressed quickly over the past year, and demolition and excavation of the site only began two years ago.
