With new construction permits filed last summer and demolition filings nearly a year ago, the site of 450 Eleventh Avenue is beginning to see some change. The existing low-rise buildings on the location are nearly gone as the lot gets cleared to make way for the upcoming ground-up 43-story hotel. Located across from the Jacob K. Javits Center between West 36th street and West 37th Street, the 487-foot tall building will be designed by DSM Design Group and developed by Marx Development Groups.
Rising above NoMad between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, 30 East 31st Street is a new residential tower designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and stands 40 stories to its rooftop. The crossed beams at the top of the building are a visual signature of the design, and will soon be enclosed in an exterior envelope of dark-colored waterproofing and glass. The project is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate.
Sitting on a corner lot at the southwest intersection of Broadway and West 31st Street on the bleeding northern edge of NoMad, 1241 Broadway is slated to become one of Midtown South’s newest office buildings. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the impending 22-story and 318-foot-tall commercial office tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. With renderings revealed and permits filed, YIMBY stopped by the old parking lot to check on progress. The site has already been vacated and cleared, while the original steel signage for the parking still remains standing above the sidewalk. Triton Construction will be in charge of building the 170,000 square foot project. Their name, along with GDSNY, are displayed on the black fence that currently surrounds the lot.
After breaking ground back in July of 2018 and rising 30 floors in only six months, Greenwich West has officially topped-out over Hudson Square, in Lower Manhattan. Located at 110 Charlton Street, the new residential tower will have 170 residences, which already launched sales this past fall. The project is one of the tallest buildings in the area, and will have views of the Hudson River, Lower Manhattan, and the Midtown skyline. Strategic Capital, Cape Advisors, and Forum Absolute Capital Partners are the developers, while Loci Anima and Adamson Associates are the designers.
Caisson pilings and ongoing foundation work have been spotted for the site of 215 West 28th Street, on the northern edge of Chelsea. Dubbed, “HAP Eight,” the project is set to stand 20 floors and 210 feet when complete. Comprised of two adjoining buildings, the site is being designed by DXA Architects and developed by HAP investments. The lot sits directly to the north of The Fashion Institute of Technology, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues. The nearly 300,000 square-foot project will consist of two separate buildings, one addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street, and the second addressed as 221-229 West 28th Street.
