Hudson Companies has achieved a major milestone at La Central, a 1.1-million-square-foot affordable housing development in The Bronx, where a collection of new commercial tenants will soon open shop. Tenants include a community-based café, a sit-down Mexican restaurant, a take-out pizza shop, an organic grocer, and an operator for the 135-space on-site parking garage.
Exterior work is progressing at One Willoughby Square, a 495-foot-tall office skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 420 Albee Square, the project is designed by FXCollaborative and being developed by JEMB Realty, and will yield 500,000 square feet of Class A office space. Gilbane Building Company is in charge of constructing the reinforced concrete edifice, which stands as the tallest new office building in Brooklyn.
Construction is progressing very quickly at 185 Broadway, a 31-story mixed-use tower in the Financial District. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by SL Green, the structure will stand 404 feet tall and yield 260,000 square feet. The site is located next to the western entrance of the Fulton Street station and one block east of the 16-acre World Trade Center complex.
Façade work is closing in on completion at 77 Greenwich Street, a 42-story mixed-use skyscraper in the Financial District. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Trinity Place Holdings, the 500-foot-tall project is slated to yield a total of 90 condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedroom layouts with interiors designed by Deborah Berke Partners.
The steel superstructure is nearing the pinnacle of Covenant House, a 164-foot-tall mixed-use building at 460 West 41st Street in Midtown West. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Covenant House, the 80,290-square-foot project will yield 53,053 square feet of community facility space and 60 residential units averaging approximately 884 square feet apiece. 460 West 41st Street is planned to be the first supportive housing development by Covenant House in 48 years and includes help from for-profit entities Gotham Organization and Denham Wolf Real Estate Services.
