Exterior work is wrapping up on Extell‘s Brooklyn Point, a 68-story residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 1 City Point and 138 Willoughby Street, the 720-foot-tall tower currently stands as the tallest building in the borough. The project, which is the third and final component in the City Point complex, is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and will yield 458 units with interior design by Katherine Newman. Homes range from studios to three-bedroom layouts with pricing from $850,000 to nearly $4 million.
In an effort to bolster sales at One Manhattan Square, Extell Development Company has unveiled an acre of private outdoor amenities designed by West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. Located in the Two Bridges section of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the neighborhood’s signature tower stands 800 feet above the East River and now comprises 100,000 square feet of total amenity space.
The construction crane on Extell‘s Central Park Tower has begun disassembly at 217 West 57th Street in Midtown as the 1,550-foot-tall skyscraper moves closer to completion. Designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, the residential supertall boasts the highest roof level of any building in the Western Hemisphere. Extell is projecting a $4 billion sellout with its in-house team marketing the 179 residences.
Construction is set to resume at 50 West 66th Street, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Progress had been stalled on the 775-foot-tall residential tower until recently, when a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete the project. Snøhetta is the designer of the 69-story structure, which will eventually eclipse the parapet of the neighborhood’s current title-holding skyscraper, 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
The Hard Rock Hotel’s glass curtain wall is closing in on the final floors of the 35-story project at 159 West 48th Street in Times Square. Developed by Extell and Hard Rock International, the structure made incredible progress over the past few months, reaching its 442-foot-tall parapet in the blink of an eye. The 291,000-square-foot development will contain 446 guest rooms, two entertainment venues, flexible meeting spaces, round-the-clock dining options, a fitness center, and a rooftop lounge. SLCE Architects is the architect of record.
