A Lexus service building is about to meet the wrecking ball for a mixed-use residential project, complete with its own automotive showroom. Permits have been filed for the twelve-story structure at 547 West 47th street, in Hell’s Kitchen. The site is one avenue east of the Hudson River Greenway, and three avenues west from the 50th street subway station, serviced by the A, C, and E trains.
One of the largest new developments in East Harlem is now making substantial headway at 1399 Park Avenue, on the corner of East 104th Street, as shown in the latest progress photos by Tectonic. Heritage Real Estate Partners report that the structure will be topping out soon. Window installation is expected to start by mid-January, but the concrete exterior seen now will likely remain about the same through completion, judging by the renderings.
Permits have been filed for a new 20-story hotel in Murray Hill, Manhattan. The site, at 347 Lexington Avenue on the corner of East 40th Street, is just a few blocks away from Grand Central Terminal, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, 7, shuttle to Times Square, and the Metro-North railroad trains.
While the Upper West Side rarely sees new developments, a few blocks in the upper 70s and lower 80s have recently sprouted several modestly-sized but impeccably-designed towers. Now, another is in the works, as Alchemy Properties and Carlyle Group’s 18-story condominium project at 250 West 81st Street has risen above ground. The building will be yet another attractive, masonry-clad high-rise designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
The Upper East Side is no stranger to new luxury high-rise apartment buildings, but with the completion of Second Avenue’s Q train, they’re seemingly getting bigger. Now, 360 East 89th Street is nearly ready to open, as shown by the latest photos from Tectonic.
