Permits have been filed for a 20-story mixed-use building at 1230 Madison Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is ideally located for culturally engaged residents, as it is on the same block as the Guggenheim Museum, and just six blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Six blocks away is the 86th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. Real Estate Equities Corporation (R.E.E.C.) is behind the applications.
HAP Investment Developers first announced 247-249 East 117th Street in 2017 following a purchase of the build site for an estimated $3.2 million. Today, the project is known as HAP NINE, and YIMBY has a first look at the design’s renderings from Fischer + Makooi Architects.
The newest Bjarke Ingels Group-designed project has now partially topped out. The taller 36-story component of the XI, at 76 Eleventh Avenue in Chelsea, has reached this milestone when just seven months ago, it was merely two stories high. With only a few months in between YIMBY’s visits, the enormous scale of the new building is quite shocking, as it rose incredibly quickly. The theatric nature of the twisting concrete sculpture certainly catches the attention of visitors from the High Line park, where many tourists are already snapping photographs. HFZ Capital Group is responsible for the development.
Permits have been pre-filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 14 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The site is right by the major East Houston commercial thoroughfare, and seven blocks away from the Essex Street subway station, serviced by the F, J, M, and Z trains. Andres Hogg of Hogg Holdings is listed as responsible for the development.
One of the most highly anticipated skyscrapers in Manhattan’s history has finally reached its peak architectural height. Two American flags have been fastened to the top of the tower in Midtown, announcing that the full topping-out has now occurred. This differs from the mid-June topping out event that architect Jean Nouvel attended, since that was to celebrate construction reaching the peak habitable height. Hines is responsible for the development.
