Back in early September, in the midst of the Great Filing Frenzy of 2014, permits went up for a new residential tower spanning 38-46 West 33rd Street, just southeast of Herald Square. Now YIMBY has the reveal for the 36-story building, which has seen a slight height increase from 385 to 405 feet, thanks to a watchful tipster.
The amalgam of renovated St Vincent’s hospital buildings and handsome new brick that make up Greenwich Lane are slowly moving toward completion between West 11th Street, West 12th Street and Seventh Avenue. YIMBY toured the development and its supermarket-turned-sales office earlier this week, and lead architect Dan Kaplan from FXFOWLE explained the design and thought process behind the five buildings and five townhouses that make up the complex.
The Hallets Point megaproject is finally moving forward on the Astoria waterfront: a new building application has been filed for a 22-story mixed use complex at 26-01 1st Street.
YIMBY sat down with Bjarke Ingels to talk about his firm’s design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center. Despite public outcry following the change from the Norman Foster version of the tower, BIG’s innovative and forward-thinking building will truly respond to the human needs of its tenants, while also punctuating the Downtown skyline with a 1,340-foot take on a classic ziggurat. We’ve also obtained a few additional renderings of the soon-to-be icon’s impact on the cityscape.
Last year, All Year Management bought a warehouse at 41-21 28th Street in Long Island City for $17,000,000, and now YIMBY has the first look at the 16-story residential tower rising in its place between the Queensboro Bridge and 41st Avenue.
