Located in the Financial District, the plot from which the 498-foot-tall, 312,000-square-foot tower is due to rise currently sits empty, with no recent signs of activity since the demolition of five buildings that once stood on the land.
JMH Development and Mettle Property Group recently celebrated the commencement of construction at 36-20 Steinway Street in Astoria, Queens.

Work on the 36-story, mixed-use residential tower dubbed One Clinton is continuing to make rapid progress in Brooklyn Heights, and the building’s warm-colored stone façade is now rising.

The 295,000-square-foot project will include 134 residential units and One Clinton Street Library, a new public library that will replace the former Brooklyn Heights Library. The superstructure is situated at the confluence of Clinton Street, Tillary Street, and Cadman Plaza West.
