Progress is moving along at 287 East Houston Street, with the façade now fully installed, the building topped out, and interior work underway. The 11-story building, named 287/LES, is right on the border of the Lower East Side and the East Village, and just five blocks from the Essex Street subway station, providing quick access to the F, J, M, and Z trains. Vinci Partners and Hogg Holdings are developing the project.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 104 Martin Luther King Place in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.

Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The post-war Japanese Metabolism movement, a style that integrated organic material and architecture, was what inspired the 16-story building’s distinctive look.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 204 Schenck Avenue in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn. The lot is right on the border with East New York. Four blocks away is the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the J and Z trains. Labib Krunfol is listed as responsible for the development.
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.
