On Friday, we brought you an update on construction of 220 Central Park South, now quickly rising over the park. However, what’s behind it will eventually eclipse it. We’re talking about 217 West 57th Street, officially known as Central Park Tower and dubbed Nordstrom Tower by YIMBY.
Wood frame houses and vacant lots are slowly giving way to new construction on the short blocks between Bushwick Avenue and Broadway in southern Bushwick. Today, we have a look at one of those new developments – a four-story building planned for 30 Belvedere Street.
East Flatbush is quickly becoming a hotbed for small developers looking for relatively cheap land and generous zoning. Two houses there, across from SUNY Downstate Medical Center, may bite the dust for a seven-story mixed-use building.
It’s been a few months since we last checked in on the Robert A.M. Stern Architects-designed 116-unit residential project going up at 220 Central Park South. Back in February, the tower portion had risen to about 15 stories. Now, as seen in photos supplied to YIMBY by photographer Tectonic, the tower has risen past 25 stories, on its way to 70, with more of the Alabama Silver Shadow limestone cladding in place.
A 34-story, mixed-use tower is coming to the corner of 27th Street and Third Avenue in Kips Bay, on the east side of Manhattan. New building applications filed yesterday reveal that the development will rise 388 feet into the air and fill most of the block between 26th and 27th streets.
