Groundbreaking Ceremony To Be Held For 22-Story, 224-Unit Mixed-Use Building In Hallets Point, Astoria

In May of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the first building to be constructed at Hallets Point, the seven-building, 2,404-unit mega-development planned in western Astoria. Later that summer, we reported on the building’s applications, which call for a 22-story, 224-unit residential building with a 25,350 square-foot supermarket at 26-01 1st Street. Now, the Durst Organization is planning, on Thursday, to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the building, according to DNAinfo. The Dattner Architects-designed structure will encompass 520,913 square feet in total, 368,745 square feet of which will be residential space. Completion of 26-01 1st Street is expected in 2017.

Construction Update: FRANK 57WEST Rises On The Far West Side

If you’ve gone up the West Side Highway in Manhattan or up Port Imperial Boulevard in New Jersey, you’ve probably noticed the Durst Organization-developed Bjarke Ingels Group-designed Via tetrahedron. Not only is it visually striking, there has been a fair amount of press coverage. Additionally, its next-door neighbor, the high-rise Helena has been there for a decade now. But they are not the only Durst developments on the block bounded by Eleventh Avenue, West 57th Street, Twelfth Avenue, and West 58th Street.

At Long Last, EŌS at 855 Sixth Avenue is Nearing Completion

After nearly a decade of anticipation, false starts and design changes, 855 6th Avenue is nearing completion. The 479-foot-tall tower has finally taken its place on the burgeoning Midtown South skyline, and upon completion it will fill the missing link between Herald Square to the north and the hybrid Chelsea/NoMad district to the south. The Durst Organization is developing the 41 story mixed-use project, which consists of significant residential, retail, and office components.

BIG’s 32-Story, 709-Unit Tetrahedron At 625 West 57th Street Nearing Completion

YIMBY noted in January of this year that the Durst Organization’s 32-story, 709-unit mixed-use building at 625 West 57th Street was nearly topped out, and now the project is structurally complete and receiving its final curtain wall, per DesignBoom. The building, which has a pinnacle 467 feet above street level, was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, and has been dubbed Via. Completion is expected in the coming months, and YIMBY has chronicled the project’s construction since the start, with updates as far back as August 2013.
