YIMBY has a new batch of renderings that depict a full re-cladding of the 39-story 660 Fifth Avenue, a commercial building located between West 52nd Street and West 53rd Street. Designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Brookfield Properties, the $400 million project includes a 21st century facelift as well as the renovation of 1.5 million square feet of office space. Work is planned to commence once the ten remaining leases are completed and tenants vacate, some 12 to 18 months from now, as reported in a previous Wall Street Journal story.

SL Green recently celebrated the commencement of construction at One Madison Avenue, a new 1.4-million-square-foot office building in the Flatiron District. The project entails the expansion and redevelopment of an existing 13-story structure into a 27-story Class A office building.
Exterior work is wrapping up on Extell‘s Brooklyn Point, a 68-story residential skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Alternately addressed as 1 City Point and 138 Willoughby Street, the 720-foot-tall tower currently stands as the tallest building in the borough. The project, which is the third and final component in the City Point complex, is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, and will yield 458 units with interior design by Katherine Newman. Homes range from studios to three-bedroom layouts with pricing from $850,000 to nearly $4 million.
A week after YIMBY first revealed renderings of 343 Madison Avenue, we’re back with a full rendering that further outlines the design and massing. The 925,630-square-foot Midtown East supertall is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and is being developed by Boston Properties.
The first renderings have appeared online for Kohn Pedersen Fox‘s planned 925,630-square-foot supertall at 343 Madison Avenue in Midtown East. While the full presentation from early September has yet to be posted online in spite of the city’s allegedly transparent public hearing process, YIMBY Forumer rgarri has created our own look at the tower and its future position on the Midtown skyline among other supertalls also in the planning stages.
