18 Sixth Avenue is approaching the halfway mark on the way up to its 49-story parapet in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed in a joint venture between The Brodsky Organization and Greenland Forest City Partners, the nearly 500-foot-tall structure will contain 858 rental units, of which 258 will be dedicated to affordable housing. The development will yield 740,000 square feet and stand as the tallest building in the massive 22-acre Pacific Park master plan.
Construction is getting close to topping out at One University Plaza, a 34-story mixed-use structure at 61 DeKalb Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by RXR Realty, the 435-foot-tall building is part of Long Island University‘s expansion and will add 370,960 square feet of new space to the campus.
Construction is complete on VYV South, a 432-unit residential building at 444 Warren Street in Jersey City. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by Brookfield Properties and G&S Investors, the structure is the second building to rise in the 18-acre Hudson Exchange West development following the completion of its sibling VYV at 474 Warren Street. Both edifices feature a curtain wall of dark gray brick and glass panels, and culminate in relatively flat parapets. The entire development will consist of 12 new towers with 5,400 units and 350,000 square feet of amenity, retail, and dining spaces.
Work on 99 Hudson Street in Jersey City is nearly complete as finishing touches proceed on the ground floor and interiors. Designed by Perkins Eastman and developed by COA 99 Hudson, LLC, the 79-story, 900-foot-tall residential skyscraper is the tallest building in New Jersey. Plaza Construction is in charge of construction with Vidaris overseeing the installation of the exterior envelope. 99 Hudson Street rises from a full-block parcel bound by Hudson Street to the east, Grand Street to the south, Greene Street to the west, and York Street to the north.
Demolition work is moving along on 1568 Broadway, a 30-year-old, 470-foot-tall tower in Times Square that formerly housed the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton. Nearly 75 percent of the building will be razed to create a new 46-story mixed-use property dubbed TSX Broadway. Designed by PBDW Architects, Mancini Duffy, and Perkins Eastman, and developed by L&L Holding Company, Maefield Development, and Fortress Investment Group, the site sits in the heart of Times Square at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 47th Street.
