When it comes to building big, The Moinian Group is one of New York City’s most notable developers. With Sky now the largest residential building in the Five Boroughs, YIMBY sat down with the firm’s CEO, Joseph Moinian, to discuss their recent work, what’s coming next, and whether the cavern under 41st Street and 11th Avenue will ever yield a subway station, as was originally intended. YIMBY in bold.
A rendering has been released for the proposed building at 2065-2067 Ryer Avenue, in the Fordham Heights neighborhood of The Bronx. The structure will command a significant presence in the up-and-coming neighborhood. It will be the tallest building on a block otherwise occupied by three and four-story apartment blocks. That said, the immediate surrounding area is filled with buildings of similar height, such as the one depicted in the right corner of the rendering. UA Builders Group is responsible for the development.
Financial support has been acquired for the construction of a new Midtown development, putting verticality one step closer to reality. 611 West 56th Street will rise 35 floors above the far end of Midtown’s Billionaire’s Row. Just a block away from West 57th Street, the project is another step in the redevelopment of the long-forlorn area. It will join new buildings like Via at 625 West 57th Street, the rising towers of Waterline Square, and The Max, a nearly complete mega-development on the same block. Sumaida + Khurana and LENY are responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 177 East Mosholu Parkway North, in Norwood, The Bronx. The site is right across from the landscaped area around the Mosholu Parkway. Just three blocks away is the Williamsbridge Oval Recreation Center. The 205th Street subway station is six blocks away, end of the line for the D trains. Queens-based M Development NYC is behind the applications.
While Manhattan’s construction boom is now resulting in towers crossing the 1,000-foot mark on what seems to be a monthly basis, the first near-supertall across the Hudson is also making rapid progress. 99 Hudson Street has officially crossed the halfway point to its final height of 900 feet. Once complete, the building will become the tallest skyscraper in both Jersey City, and all of New Jersey. Even at under 500′, the tower is already making an impact on the skyline, as seen from Lower Manhattan and the surrounding real estate fronting New York Harbor.
