Construction has reached the first setback on HAP Eight at 215 West 28th Street in Chelsea. The 20-story, 210-foot-tall residential project is being designed by DXA Architects and developed by HAP Investments, and consists of two separate buildings spanning over 300,000 square feet. The two structures are addressed as 215-219 West 28th Street and 221-229 West 28th Street.
Work is continuing on the demolition of 10-20 West 57th Street to make way for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. So far one four-story building has been fully razed, and 20 West 57th Street is currently in the midst of coming down. Scaffolding and black netting shroud the northern elevation with the top floors already torn apart and dismantled. Two other structures in the parcel remain and have been vacated. James Patterson of Ancora Engineering is the applicant of record and Solow Realty & Development Group is the developer of the 672-foot-tall, 383,000-square-foot skyscraper, which will contain 80 residential units spread across 202,738 square feet of space.
Installation of the reflective glass curtain wall on the northern elevation of 106 West 56th Street is approaching the final setback of the 27-story structure. The Perkins Eastman-designed boutique office building stands topped out at 403 feet tall and is being developed by private equity firm Savanna Fund, along with Hong Kong-based developer Atom Assets.
The glass curtain wall on 7 West 57th Street’s main southern elevation is finished. Work is nearing completion on the 19-story mixed-use residential building, designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Solow Realty & Development Group, which purchased the property 14 years ago for $25,550,000. Vidaris is the envelope consultant for the 237-foot-tall project.
YIMBY has the first look at new renderings for a 31-story mixed-use building at 200 East 34th Street, aka 501 Third Avenue, in Kips Bay. Xiaocheng Zhou under COA 200 East 34th LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications on recently filed permits for the development. The project is being designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and will eventually rise as a 388-foot-tall tower yielding a total of 135,094 square feet.
