It’s been five months since 53 West 53rd Street came within striking distance of its pinnacle. We can now report that the Midtown supertall has officially topped out at its highest habitable floor, which contains the upper portion of a $70 million duplex. In today’s post, we scope the views from the tower’s apex, and also have the latest from the tower’s architect, Jean Nouvel, who attended the topping-out celebration last week.
A new look is out for the proposed three-story building at 147 Saint Felix Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. The site is located just two blocks away from the Atlantic Barclays Center intersection. JRA Design Group is responsible for the design.

The site is five blocks away from Dekalb Avenue subway station in Bushwick, serviced by the L train, and eight blocks away from the Seneca Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train. Sal Mendolia is listed as responsible for the development.
Right across from the iconic Grand Central terminal in Midtown, construction is moving along for the commercial supertall One Vanderbilt. Our last update in March showed that the building had reached two floors above the distinctive retail podium. We can report that the structure has more than doubled in height over the past three months, now standing 17 floors above street level. The building will eventually top off 1,401 feet above street level, and SL Green is developing.
