New renderings have been revealed for 495 Eleventh Avenue, a pair of residential skyscrapers in Midtown, Manhattan. Located between West 39th and 40th Streets directly next to the Jakob K. Javits Center expansion, the two towers will stand 680 feet tall and 57 stories, and 653 feet tall and 56 stories. The site currently functions as a parking lot for the New York Police Department. FXCollaborative and Gwathmey Siegal Kaufman Architects are the designers responsible for the work.
Façade work is nearing completion on 460 West 41st Street, a 164-foot-tall mixed-use building in Midtown West. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Covenant House, the structure will become the first supportive housing development by Covenant House in nearly 50 years, with help from for-profit entities Gotham Organization and Denham Wolf Real Estate Services. The 80,290-square-foot property is located between Eighth and Ninth Avenues and will yield 60 residential units averaging approximately 884 square feet, as well as a 53,053-square-foot community facility. The project is expected to cost $128 million.
