This week Douglaston Development announced the topping out of 601 West 29th Street, a mixed-use residential tower that will bring 703 market-rate and 235 affordable housing residences to West Chelsea. The 60-story skyscraper encompasses an entire block on 11th Avenue from West 29th to West 30th Streets on the border of West Chelsea and Hudson Yards. In addition to the 938 rentals, components include over 50,000 square feet of amenity space and 15,000 square feet of retail space. FXCollaborative is responsible for the design of the 695-foot-tall building, with Levine Builders handling construction.
Exterior work is continuing to progress on One Willoughby Square, a 36-story, 495-foot-tall office skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 420 Albee Square, the project is designed by FXCollaborative and is being developed by JEMB Realty, and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. One Willoughby Square is set to open as the tallest new office building in Brooklyn and is bound by Albee Square West to the east, Willoughby Street to the north, and Duffield Street to the west. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of construction on the project.
YIMBY has word that The Joe Tirone Team, an affiliated brokerage group under the Compass umbrella, completed the sale of three adjoining lots that were identified as “Projected Development Site 2” in a proposal to City Planning by Madison Realty Capital late last year. That parcel was envisioned to give rise to a 117,848-square-foot, mixed use building. Madison owns, and will develop, “Projected Development Site 1” in their River North proposal, a multi-faceted mixed-use complex under city review that was formerly known as Liberty Towers, in Staten Island‘s St. George neighborhood.
Following a series appeals to the Landmarks Preservation Commission and eventual approval in June 2020, The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) will soon debut at 361 Central Park West on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Architect of record FXCollaborative has released new renderings of the museum, which will occupy a former church and New York City landmark.
Construction has passed the halfway mark at 601 West 29th Street, a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards and number 20 on our countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York. Referred to as “Tower A” in a two-building development along with the adjacent 606 West 30th Street, the 58-story structure is designed by FXCollaborative for Douglaston Development and sits along Eleventh Avenue on the border of West Chelsea.
