Construction is full swing on the Terminal Warehouse, a seven-story commercial conversion at 261 Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea, Manhattan. Designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L&L Holding Company and Columbia Property Trust, the $1.25 billion project will overhaul the 121-year-old warehouse structure and yield a mix of Class A office suites, retail space, and dining options. L&L and Normandy Real Estate Partners purchased the Terminal Warehouse in 2018 for $880 million, and CBRE helped to arrange construction funding from the Blackstone Real Estate Debt Strategies platform, Goldman Sachs, KKR, and Oaktree Capital Management. New Line Structures & Development is the general contractor for the property, which is bound by West 28th Street to the north, West 27th Street to the south, Eleventh Avenue to the east, and West Street to the west.

Construction on TSX Broadway has reached a significant milestone with the completion of the historic Palace Theatre’s lift to its new position 30 feet above street level within the podium of the 47-story Times Square hotel tower. The engineering challenge was overseen by Urban Foundation and Engineering and used a system of 34 hydraulic jacks to hoist the 14-million-pound venue at a speed of about a quarter of an inch per hour over the span of four months. Work will now commence on PBDW Architects‘ restoration of the theater, whose new elevated position will make way for 100,000 square feet of retail space at the base of the structure.
Work continues to wrap up on 425 Park Avenue, a 47-story commercial skyscraper in Midtown East. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners for L&L Holding Company, Tokyu Land Corporation, and co-managing partner BentallGreenOak, the 897-foot-tall structure will yield 667,000 square feet of office space and a ground-floor restaurant run by world-renowned Chef Daniel Humm, proprietor of the three Michelin-starred Eleven Madison Park.

PBDW Architects is restoring the interior of the theatre, and Pavarini McGovern is the general contractor for 1568 Broadway, which is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street.
