Back in June, YIMBY reported on progress for the Block 675 Redevelopment, just to the southwest of Related’s Hudson Yards supertalls. The site sits on the corner of 30th Street and 11th Avenue, and there, Douglaston Development and Lalezarian Properties want to use air rights transferred from Chelsea Piers via the Special Hudson River Park District to build over 1,200 apartments. Now, we have some fresh renderings, a clearer look at Tower B, and the latest figures for the still-growing proposal, which consists of two towers being designed by FXFOWLE and Ismael Leyva Architects.
While Jersey City’s ongoing real estate boom has been substantial and transformative, almost the entirety of the action has been devoted to the creation of new residential space, including towers like 99 Hudson Street. But a few blocks north, the city’s first new commercial office building in decades, dubbed Harborside Tower, is getting ready to rise at 136 Greene Street, and renderings have now been released.
Renderings from FXFOWLE in recent months have pictured plans for The Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard both with and without a spire. But now, plans for the project have seen a complete redesign, and ground has officially been broken on the 53-story and 940-foot-tall tower.
The future site of the FXFOWLE-designed 77 Greenwich Street, a.k.a 42 Trinity Place, has seen substantial progress since YIMBY last checked in on what will eventually become a 40-story and 500-foot tall residential building, back when permits were filed in September of 2016. Demolition of the site’s former occupants is now complete, and excavation is well underway.
After several design iterations, it appears that work is finally set to begin on a new office tower at 420 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn. What was originally expected to become the borough’s tallest residential tower saw a substantial downgrade in expectations when revised permits were filed in March of 2015, only for the shift to office to be announced in November of the same year. FXFowle is listed as the architect on the latest version, which will rise 36 floors and 495 feet to its rooftop.
