Demolition Begins At 520 West 41st Street, Site Of 106-Story Mixed-Use Tower, Midtown West

Earlier this year, Silverstein Properties paid roughy $100 million for a car dealership at 520 West 41st Street, aka 514 Eleventh Avenue, in Midtown West. Last summer, YIMBY revealed plans for an 106-story, 1,400-unit mixed-use tower at the site (currently traversing ULURP). Although the proposed 1.685 million square-foot building has yet to be approved, Curbed reports demolition of the existing low-rise commercial building has begun.
