13-Story, 19-Unit Mixed-Use Building Rises to Seventh Floor at 207 West 79th Street, Upper West Side

Construction is seven stories above street level on the 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under development at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side. The latest photo was posted by a user on the YIMBY Forums. The most recent building permits indicate the project will eventually measure 71,578 square feet and rise 158 feet, including the bulkhead. There will be 5,194 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The residential units above, which will be condominiums, will range from two- to five-bedrooms, averaging 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design, both inside and out. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.

Ground Floor of 46-Story Hearst Tower Getting 107-Foot-Long Digital Display, 300 West 57th Street

Hearst Tower, the 46-story, 861,100-square-foot office tower located at 300 West 57th Street in Midtown, is about to get a flashy upgrade to its ground floor. Crews are now constructing what will be dubbed HearstLive, a digital, wrap-around media installation that will broadcast news and other information. It will become the building’s façade at street level, measuring 107 feet, five inches along Eighth Avenue and 57th Street. The exact content will be determined by a collection of Hearst’s brands and partners. Hearst Tower is an individual landmark, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission would have had to approve any exterior alterations, but this latest addition appears to be located behind the existing glass. HearstLive will debut on September 27.
