Demolition work is continuing at 1568 Broadway in Times Square, where the 46-story, 470-foot-tall building now stands less than 20 stories high. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the project involves the partial demolition of the former DoubleTree Suites by Hilton and construction of a new 46-story, 550,000-square-foot hotel tower dubbed TSX Broadway, on its foundations. This also includes the preservation of the 108-year-old Palace Theater, which will be raised 30 feet to make room for ground-floor retail space. The site is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street, directly across from the TKTS stairs.
Exterior work is complete and closings are underway for Jersey City‘s 99 Hudson Street, the tallest skyscraper in the state of New Jersey and number 11 on our annual construction countdown. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by COA 99 Hudson, LLC, the 79-story, 900-foot-tall residential tower contains 781 condominium units. The site is bound by Hudson Street to the east, Grand Street to the south, Greene Street to the west, and York Street to the north.
Number 30 on our countdown of the tallest projects under construction in New York is the Turkevi Center, a 563-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper at 821 First Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. Designed by Perkins Eastman, the 35-story tower will serve as the consulate for the Republic of Turkey.
Construction is nearing topping out at 18 Sixth Avenue, a 49-story residential skyscraper in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by The Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners, the 740,000-square-foot structure will yield 858 rental units, of which 258 will be dedicated to affordable housing. At 532 feet tall, it will stand as the tallest building in the 22-acre Pacific Park master plan. The property sits directly to the east of Barclays Center and is bound by Atlantic Avenue to the north and the corner of Sixth Avenue and Pacific Street to the east.
Exterior work is complete on The Wheeler, a mixed-use development at 181 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and Shimoda Design Group and developed by Tishman Speyer, the project involved the construction of modern 14-story, 256-foot-tall addition atop a historic Art Deco building containing a Macy’s department store. The steel-framed addition yields 843,830 square feet of new commercial space above the Macy’s, which spans the first four floors. Offices take up the remaining 90,000 square feet and feature 16-foot-tall ceiling heights. The property is also addressed as 422 Fulton Street.
