The Bromley Companies have tapped Perkins Eastman Architects for a three-story, vertical addition to an existing 19th century building in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighborhood. Located at 122 Fifth Avenue between 17th and 18th Streets, the structure was originally completed in 1899 by architect Robert Maynicke and real estate developer Henry Corn.
In an official groundbreaking event, Anbau Enterprises and COOKFOX Architects have celebrated the start of construction at 39 West 29th Street. The dual-tower, ground-up condominium development will rise 24 stories with a shared central courtyard just west of Madison Square Park.
Global media brand Discovery, Inc. will relocate its US headquarters to New York City’s 230 Park Avenue South. TF Cornerstone facilitated the deal and owns the building, with the headquarters taking over 360,000 square feet of Class A office space.
A vacant lot in the Flatiron District is on its way to getting a new building. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved an application for a single-family residence at 34 West 21st Street.
Last November, YIMBY reported that the 18-story, 288-unit mixed-use project at 7 West 21st Street, in the Flatiron District, topped out. Since then, much of the façade has been installed on both street fronts — the building spans the block between 21st and 22nd streets — as seen in photos taken by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 289,809 square feet. Both buildings will be connected up to the ground floor, where 13,076 square feet of retail is planned. The residential units above will be rentals, averaging 904 square feet apiece. Twenty percent (58 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Friedland Properties is the developer. Morris Adjmi Architects is the design architect, with the Stephen B. Jacobs Group serving as the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017. The new building sits within the Ladies’ Mile Historic District.
