YIMBY has reported on 200 Amsterdam Avenue extensively, revealing renderings back in 2016 and then covering the start of excavation in October. Since then, Extell’s 50 West 66th Street has upstaged it as the soon-to-be tallest on the Upper West Side, but SJP Properties’ 55-story and 669-foot-tall contribution to the skyline will still be extremely impressive in its own right. Today, we have a new set of renderings that give a clearer picture of the actual skyscraper, and a close-up of its crown.
Demolition permits have been filed for the five-story building at 126 Madison Avenue, in Midtown South, Manhattan. The site will become a commercial extension of 15 East 30th Street, a residential high-rise. Photos show construction is moving along for the project, which will top out at 51 stories.
The prime blocks of the Upper East Side seldom see new developments, but renderings have now been revealed for the H.T.O. Architect-designed 27 East 79th Street. The project is the first new building to rise on its block in nearly forty years. The architect teamed up with the Parisian firm, Cabinet Albero Pinto, to create a structure fit for the neighborhood.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 83-05 116th Street, in Kew Gardens, Queens. The site is just under a mile away from the Union Turnpike-Kew Gardens Subway Station, serviced by the E and F trains. The 121st Street Subway Station is also three-quarters of a mile away, serviced by the J and Z trains. The largely residential neighborhood is enriched by its proximity to Forest Park, spanning over 538 acres, 165 acres of which is occupied by trees and trails.
Permits have been filed for a three-story residential building and garage at 43-65 157th Street, in East Flushing, Queens. The site is eleven blocks from the Murray Hill Train Station, serviced by the Port Washington line of the LIRR. The Main Street Subway Station, end of the line for the 7 trains, and its surrounding commercial hotspot is a ten minute drive by car. Yue Ying Zhang will be responsible for the development.
