The prominence of the Hudson Yards district continues to grow, and today, Tishman Speyer has announced the official start of construction for The Spiral. The 1,031-foot tall building will be the fifth supertall added to the area. An event to mark the occasion will be held this afternoon, and will conclude with the planting of a 20-foot Alaskan Cedar tree to serve as Hudson Boulevard & Park’s annual Christmas tree.
The redevelopment of the southwest corner of the West Village by the Hudson River is often overlooked, but that part of the neighborhood is about to get a healthy dose of modernization. One project now under construction is 111 Leroy Street, which will create nine apartments and five townhouses. Work has progressed significantly since our last look, and façade installation appears imminent. Property Markets Group is responsible for the development.
As construction nears full completion at 19 Dutch in Manhattan’s Financial District, today, the developer has officially launched leasing for the luxury residential tower. Designed by New York’s GKV Architects with SLCE serving as architect of record, the gleaming, glass-clad structure soars 770 feet above Lower Manhattan.
Pending LPC Approval, 405-409 West 13th Street could undergo a fresh renovation of its aging storefront, and a vertical enlargement from three to six stories.
It’s been five months since 53 West 53rd Street came within striking distance of its pinnacle. We can now report that the Midtown supertall has officially topped out at its highest habitable floor, which contains the upper portion of a $70 million duplex. In today’s post, we scope the views from the tower’s apex, and also have the latest from the tower’s architect, Jean Nouvel, who attended the topping-out celebration last week.
