The years-long initiative to renovate and repurpose the defunct Bayview Correctional Facility in Chelsea may never be revived following an abrupt cancellation by the NoVo Foundation and Goren Group in 2019. Referred to as the Women’s Building, the structure at 550 West 20th Street would have repurposed and expanded the former all-female prison, renderings of which have been released by Spacesmith and Davis Brody Bond.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use building at 1073 Summit Avenue in Highbridge, The Bronx. Located between West 165th Street and West 166th Street, the through lot is closest to the 167th Street subway station, serviced by the 4, B, and D trains. Stagg Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is getting close to topping out at 441 West 37th Street, an 11-story mixed-use residential building in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen. Happy Living Development is developing the property with DLJU Architects as the architect of record and Adele Schachner Architecture + Interiors as the interior designer.
Jersey City’s waterfront is set to give rise to another new skyscraper. City officials have approved Harborside 8, a 68-story, 708-foot-tall residential tower at the southeast corner of Second and Hudson Streets. Developed by Mack Cali and designed by Elkus Manfredi Architects, the building will eventually top out as one of the tallest structures in the state of New Jersey.
Excavation has begun at 208 Delancey Street, the site of a 119-foot-tall, 11-story residential development on the Lower East Side.
