Earlier this September, YIMBY broke news that Extell’s 99-story Nordstrom Tower lost its spire and will rise 1,550 feet to the parapet, and today, the building is on the rise at 217 West 57th Street, per Curbed. Since YIMBY’s last construction update in July, significant progress has been made. The tower’s concrete core is currently above street level, and the rest of the building is slowly rising out of the pit. Nordstrom will occupy a significant chunk of the building’s base, and the 1.3-million square-foot tower is expected to be finished by 2019.
After revealing the first rendering for the building, YIMBY reported on the summer ground-breaking of 472 Atlantic Avenue/465 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, and now The New York Times has a day-time image of the project, along with new details. Condominiums will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations, though the majority will be family-sized with three bedrooms, measuring roughly 1,400 square feet apiece. Stribling Marketing Associates is the broker, Avery Hall Investments and ARIA Development Group are developing, and Morris Adjmi Architects is designing, with completion currently anticipated for the winter of 2017.
Earlier this year, Curbed revealed a rendering of the 20-story, 110-unit mixed-use building planned at 42-10 27th Street, in Long Island City, and now foundation work is underway at the site, according to The Court Square Blog. The building will measure 90,153 square feet in total, and includes 8,645 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Apartments will start on the third floor and average 741 square feet apiece; recreational space will be located on the 19th and 20th floors. Great Neck-based Lions Group is developing, while Raymond Chan is designing, and completion is expected in early 2017.
Last summer, a developer was brought in to build the 202-unit residential portion of Rivertowns Square, a mixed-use project in Westchester’s Dobbs Ferry, and now the lead developer, Saber Dobbs Ferry LLC, is bringing in Maryland-based Baywood Hotels Inc. to construct and manage a 138-key, 83,000 square-foot Hilton Garden Inn, per Westfair. The hotel will be located at 35 Livingstone Avenue, atop a two-story retail podium, formerly the site of a research facility. The head developer secured a $42 million loan earlier this month, and completion is expected in 2016.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY posted the first exteriors for the Robert A.M. Stern-designed revamp of One Wall Street, and now a new video for the project has appeared, featuring its developer Harry Macklowe, which comes with fresh renderings of what the project’s retail may look like.
