Demolition permits were filed last week for 5 East 51st Street, part of the assemblage that could give rise to New York City’s future tallest building by roof height. The future 1,556-foot-tall and 96-story Tower Fifth, is located in Midtown East, between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Permits were previously filed for this lot in April, but later withdrawn. Filings for the remaining structures within the footprint have also been trickling in over the past few months, hopefully indicating that excavation for the prospective supertall is imminent.
Demolition permits have been filed for two buildings at 10-14 West 57th Street and 20 West 57th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue, the sites are steps away from the 57th Street subway station, serviced by the F train. Anthony Calicchio of Solow Realty & Development Group is listed as the owner behind the applications. Solow Realty has been methodically purchasing parcels on West 57th Street, including 7, 10-14, 16, 20-22; all near their quintessential office property—9 West 57th Street.
Full demolition permits have been filed for a couple of two-story buildings at 2328-2330 Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Plans for the lot are underway by developers Welltower and Hines, which include luxury housing for seniors.
Full demolition permits have been filed for three adjacent four-story structures at 1637-1641 First Avenue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
