YIMBY initially reported on 350 West 71st Street, on the Upper West Side, when plans were filed in 2016. Now, we have the first glimpse of the final product. DNA Development is responsible for the project which is converting and combining two properties, one of which is a landmarked single-room-occupancy hotel, into far more spacious condominiums.
Construction is moving along at One Vanderbilt in Midtown, with work on the lower floors now rising past the cantilever. Thanks to images by Tectonic, we can see the tower has reached its maximum width. It is now nearly the same height as Grand Central Terminal, which peaks at 130 feet. Several companies have recently signed on for space, with Greenberg Traurig announcing plans to move their center of New York Operations into the supertall, acquiring a fifteen-year lease for four continuous floors.
Renderings are out for a complete redesign of 609 Fifth Avenue, a large retail space on one of the busiest street corners in the country, in Midtown Manhattan. The modern façade will bring floor-to-ceiling windows to the base of the limestone structure.
76 11th Avenue, also knows as The Eleventh, has finally started to show itself. Construction began in the Fall of 2016, and YIMBY has been following its progress closely. Running the length of 11th Avenue between 17th and 18th Street, the site is one of the largest parcels of land to be developed since the recent surge of construction started along the High Line, and the latest photos from BIG and Tectonic show that the transformative project is finally beginning its climb into the West Chelsea skyline.
A new proposal has been submitted to the LPC for 75 Varick Street, in Hudson Square. Trinity Real Estate’s One Hudson Square is set to receive a rooftop renovation, and the top of the 17-story building is slated to be converted to an outdoor recreational space.
