Construction at 500 West 25th Street is now topped out and the installation of glass panels in the curtain wall is almost complete. GF55 Partners is the architect of record for the ten-story building while GDS Development is the developer. The site is located next to the High Line at the corner of West 25th Street and Tenth Avenue.
Sitting on a corner lot at the southwest intersection of Broadway and West 31st Street on the bleeding northern edge of NoMad, 1241 Broadway is slated to become one of Midtown South’s newest office buildings. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, the impending 22-story and 318-foot-tall commercial office tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. With renderings revealed and permits filed, YIMBY stopped by the old parking lot to check on progress. The site has already been vacated and cleared, while the original steel signage for the parking still remains standing above the sidewalk. Triton Construction will be in charge of building the 170,000 square foot project. Their name, along with GDSNY, are displayed on the black fence that currently surrounds the lot.
Full demolition permits have been filed for the two buildings at 322-326 Seventh Avenue, in Chelsea, Manhattan. A three-story building at 322 Seventh Avenue and a five-story building at 326 Seventh Avenue will be coming down, containing a total of six residential apartments and 12 commercial units.
As reported by YIMBY in August of 2018, GDS Development filed permits to develop a 22-floor commercial tower at the corner of 31st Street and Broadway. Renderings have finally arrived from architects Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) and reveal a minimalist, glowing façade and several open-air terraces.
Permits have been filed for a 22-story commercial office building at 1241 Broadway in Midtown, Manhattan. The architect of the project will be Skidmore Owings & Merrill, who arguably have had the largest impact on New York City’s built environment compared to any other firm. First formed in 1939, they specialize in high-end office space, like the soon-to-be tower in today’s post.
