Speculations for the topping out of the 73-story 30 Hudson Yards have been swirling for the last couple months, and now the fateful day has finally arrived. Yesterday morning, YIMBY received confirmation that the tallest building of the Hudson Yards mega-development has finally reached its pinnacle, with an American flag rising above the building’s parapet. While some steel remains to be installed before the crown is fully complete, the significance of this is akin to the topping of the spire of a cathedral. In this case, it is a monument to the capitalistic ideals that fuel the contemporary American economy.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 86 Starr Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is half a block away from the Maria Hernandez Park, and six blocks from the Central Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train. Ioan Sita is responsible for the development.
Today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for yet another major new development coming to Astoria, in Queens, showcasing design by Aufgang Architects. The depiction shows the building’s façade along 30th Street. Concrete panels will be installed in a rectilinear pattern likened to a minimalist refinement of row houses, which projects the sheer scale of the city block-sized structure. The site is just ten blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 66 Linden Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from Gates Avenue, serviced by the J and Z trains. Gaborone Properties Corp will be responsible for the development.
