A year ago, SL Green began knocking down a full block of prewar commercial buildings next to Grand Central to make way for a 1,401-foot-tall office tower at One Vanderbilt Avenue. Now YIMBY has a time lapse of the lengthy demolition between 42nd and 43rd Streets, courtesy of the project’s PR team.
New construction has slowed down in eastern Bedford-Stuyvesant this year, but a few ambitious developers are heading out to less-established parts of the neighborhood despite uncertainty over the future of the 421-a tax break. Three townhouses are set to replace a large, aging wood-frame structure at 282-284 Patchen Avenue, between Bainbridge and Chauncey streets.
The huge two-building, 392-unit rental development at 525 West 52nd Street in Hell’s Kitchen looks like it could be ready for tenants soon. Tectonic brings YIMBY a look at how construction is coming along at the site between 10 and 11th avenues.
The former railyard on the Weehawken waterfront has slowly blossomed into a new neighborhood, complete with upscale residential buildings, shops, and restaurants. Now the area, known as Port Imperial, is about to get a new, two-tower condo building called Avora. Industrious photographer Tectonic brings us a look at the construction, which has risen several stories along the Hudson River.
After a decade of waiting, Jean Nouvel’s 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as the Torre Verre and now known as 53W53, is finally climbing into the New York City skyline. And while the tower only stands about a dozen floors at the moment — up from only a handful when YIMBY last checked in on the site this past June — installation of its iconic cladding and glass has already begun, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer streetscaper.
