250 Fifth Avenue Begins Vertical Ascent In Midtown Manhattan

250 Fifth Avenue is an upcoming 23-story, 230-foot tall building in Midtown. The future hotel conversion is being designed by Charles Platt of Platt Byard Dovell White Architects with Perkins Eastman as the architect of record. Empire Management is the developer of the NoMad site. The existing 111-year old, five-story exterior of the McKim, Mead & White building is being preserved and restored. The landmarked facade will sit next to the new structure which will be enclosed in light-colored precast concrete panels and closely spaced, vertical strips of narrow windows along the southern facade.

Work Begins on Conversion And 23-Story Hotel Addition at 250 Fifth Avenue in NoMad

A weave of scaffolding and black netting has now shrouded the exterior facade of a former office building at 250 Fifth Avenue, which will soon be reborn as a hotel. The site is in NoMad, between West 28th Street and West 29th Street. With the facade designated as a landmark within the Madison Square North Historic District, the original five-story McKim, Mead and White structure, completed in 1907, will be part of the conversion that also calls for a new 23-story tower to the west of the original 111 year-old structure.

New Developers Buy Site of Planned Nine-Story, 33-Unit Mixed-Use Project at 88 Withers Street, Williamsburg

BK Developers and RYBAK Development have acquired, for $11.5 million, the development site at 88 Withers Street, located on the corner of Leonard Street in northern Williamsburg, Real Estate Weekly reported. The site boasts plans, green-lighted by the Department of Buildings in 2015, for a nine-story, 33-unit mixed-use project measuring 39,815 square feet. The new building would include 2,768 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the third through ninth floors. The apartments should average 938 square feet apiece, which means either condominiums or rentals could be in the works. Platt Byard Dovell White Architects is the architect. When YIMBY visited the site in the spring, the site’s former single-story warehouse had been demolished.
