40 Bleecker Street‘s detailed curtain wall is finally being unveiled from behind the black netting and scaffolding. The rounded glass and brick corners and subtle appointments between the floor-to ceiling windows can now be appreciated from street level. The façade consists of large windows vertically grouped in two-story pairs among a tight narrow grid across the wide western elevation facing Mulberry Street and the shorter northern profile along Bleecker Street. The 12-story residential building in NoHo is designed by Rawlings Architects and developed by Broad Street Development, and will include a total of 61 one- to five-bedroom units.
Construction is wrapping up at 100 Franklin Street in Tribeca, where the 200-foot-long stretch of hand-laid Petersen Tegl bricks that clad the building’s eastern profile is now complete. Designed, developed and built by DDG, the residential structure is located in the Tribeca East Historic District and consists of conjoined triangular-shaped buildings on a narrow property yielding a total of ten full-floor residences. Douglas Elliman is in charge of sales, which launched in April with units ranging from 1,427 square feet to 3,673 square feet.
YIMBY recently went on a hard-hat tour of Madison House, aka 15 East 30th Street The slender 805-foot-tall tower is topped out as the tallest skyscraper in NoMad, standing 62 stories tall, and creates a distinct multi-pointed crown and silhouette on the Midtown skyline. The residential building is designed by Handel Architects, while Fosun Group and JD Carlisle are responsible for the nearly 300,000-square-foot development. Douglas Elliman is handling sales and marketing.
This past September saw concrete reach the rooftop of Extell‘s record-setting Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street, and shortly thereafter One Vanderbilt‘s spire quickly come together at the top of SL Green‘s new commercial jewel. October has also commenced with a bang, and last week, workers installed the first steel for the crowning level of SHoP Architects‘ 111 West 57th Street, reaching the parapet 1,428 feet above the streets below. That makes the building the second-tallest in New York City by its parapet, ranking below the 1,550-foot Central Park Tower, and above the 1,396-foot 432 Park Avenue. Work has indeed reached the last section of the crown, but is important to note that the supertall has not officially topped out yet.
30 East 31st Street’s exterior work is inching closer to completion, as installation of the light-colored panels in between the windows on the bottom of the northern elevation is now underway. Located in NoMad between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, the 479-foot-tall residential tower is topped-out at 40 stories, and the crossed beams at the top of the podium will soon be encased with the newly arrived panels. The 88,000-square-foot project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate. Douglas Elliman Development is marketing the building’s 42 units, which will be spread across 70,070 square feet for an average of 1,700 square feet apiece. Prices will range from $1.65 to $12 million.
