Demolition Permits Filed for 499-501 Third Avenue, Kips Bay, Manhattan

Plans for a thirteen-story mixed-use building were first floated in 2016 at 501 Third Avenue, on the 34th Street border between Kips Bay and Murray Hill. While the site has since sat idle, this appears to be changing up. Demolition permits have now been filed for two buildings, at 499 Third Avenue and 501 Third Avenue. Xin Xu of China Overseas Land & Investments Co filed the documents.

Demolition Begins For Final Piece of Extell’s 775-Foot-Tall 50 West 66th Street on the Upper West Side

One of the more interesting new designs coming to Manhattan will be at 50 West 66th Street, where Extell will soon be adding yet another punctuation mark to the city’s skyline. The site is just six blocks away from Columbus Circle, and down the block from Central Park. The building was last on our radar in late 2017, with the news that the project would dramatically increase in size to become the tallest tower on the Upper West Side, taking away the title from  200 Amsterdam Avenue before it could even begin rising. Now, demolition has officially begun on the assemblage’s last structural occupant, while excavation continues apace across the land that has already been cleared.
