Midtown West’s resurrection into a legitimately urban neighborhood has taken nearly a decade to get fully underway, but as the cranes continue creeping upwards for Related’s Hudson Yards mega-project, it is easy to forget the supertall rising one block to the east. Today, YIMBY has an update on Manhattan West thanks to Tectonic, where the site’s first office tower continues to make rapid headway towards its 995-foot pinnacle.
Last October, YIMBY reported on new building applications for a small site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 115 Broadway. Despite its size, the narrow lot is bound by South 6th Street and Bedford Avenue, making it very visually prominent, and today we have the reveal for its eventual occupant, which will certainly be eye-catching.
Flushing has been booming with new developments, as demand for more space in New York City’s largest Chinatown has continued to increase. Today, YIMBY has the first renderings of another project coming to the neighborhood, at 135-01 35th Avenue, where Stenmax Realty Inc. is planning an eight-story mixed-use building.
Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the first renderings to surface for the site at 540-544 Hudson Street, at the corner of Hudson and Charles in the West Village. Today, we have a look at another project a few dozen blocks to the south, at 50 Hudson Street. The site is located in Tribeca on the corner of Thomas Street, and the impending vertical addition will also have to receive Landmarks approval before construction can begin.
While the red tape choking most of the West Village has given most blocks over to some form of perceived permanence, small spaces for new developments still exist here and there. One such spot is located on the corner of Hudson and Charles Streets, spanning 540-544 Hudson, where designs for a new building by Morris Adjmi Architects are now awaiting approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
