Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed new renderings of World Wide Group’s and Rose Associates’ 65-story residential tower underway at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, and now the tower has topped-out. The building will include 268 units, split between 93 condominiums and 175 apartments, and amenities include a porte cochére, a 34th-floor terrace and a 75-foot-long pool and spa. Retail will be included on the ground and second floors. SOM is the design architect, while SLCE Architects is serving as architect of record. Occupancy is expected in late 2016.
Kevin Shane and New Jersey-based Jeff Jordan Architects have conceptualized a 200-foot tall, 5,000-foot long pedestrian bridge linking Jersey City to Battery Park City, in Downtown Manhattan. Dubbed Liberty Bridge, the link would provide commuters with an alternative to public transit, according to Jersey Digs. The bridge would include both pedestrian and bike lanes, as well as retail spaces, works of art, park space, and solar panels.
Meringoff Properties and the Riese Organization are placing the low-rise commercial properties spanning 677-685 Lexington Avenue on the market, according to The Wall Street Journal.

YIMBY revealed the final design towards the end of last year for the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use tower planned at 520 West 30th Street, in Midtown West, and now the project is well underway. Related has landed $200 million in loans, according to Commercial Observer, and the building has been under construction since the summer, with foundation work now nearly complete. An 11,500 square-foot retail component will span the ground floor, and Ismael Leyva is the architect of record.
Towards the end of last summer, the office-to-residential conversion of a 10-story building at 11 Beach Street, in Tribeca, was well underway.

The building’s 27 condominiums range from three to five bedrooms, and Thomas Juul-Hansen is designing the interiors. Amenities include a fitness center, children’s playroom, and a rooftop garden. HFZ Capital Group is developing, BKSK Architects is the design architect, and completion is expected in 2016.
