New renderings have been released for River Ring, Bjarke Ingels Group‘s proposed two-skyscraper development in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Developed by Two Trees Management, the organization behind Domino Park, the undertaking is planned to yield 1,050 homes with 263 affordable housing units as well as a six-acre circular waterfront park designed by James Corner Field Operations. The towers would rise from two vacant rectangular parcels that were once home to a Con Edison electric plant bound by North First Street, North Third Street, and River Street. River Ring is expected to generate about 2,000 construction jobs and more than 500 well-paying permanent jobs upon completion.
Exterior work is now nearly complete on 30 East 31st Street, a 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential building in NoMad. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate, the slender reinforced concrete tower will yield a total of 70,000 square feet and 42 units marketed by Reuveni Real Estate. Each of the homes will average 1,700 square feet and range in price from $1.65 million to upward of $12 million.
Façade work is shaping up on 1245 Broadway, a 23-story office building in NoMad. Designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill and developed by GDSNY and Sweden-based Klovern, the 318-foot-tall building will yield 200,000 square feet of commercial space with with leasing managed by CBRE. StructureTech NY and Triton Construction are in charge of constructing the project, which stands at the corner of West 31st Street and Broadway.
Work is continuing on Madison House, an 805-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 126 Madison Avenue and the tallest structure in NoMad. Alternately addressed as 15 East 30th Street, the 62-story reinforced concrete edifice is designed by Handel Architects and developed by both Fosun Group and JD Carlisle. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling sales and marketing of the 199 condominiums, which will sit atop an additional 7,500 square feet of ground-floor retail space.
Façade work is getting closer to completion on the NoMad Ritz Carlton, a 580-foot-tall hotel skyscraper at 1185 Broadway. Designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties, the 40-story tower will yield 250 guest rooms across 150,000 square feet at the corner of Broadway and West 28th Street.
