Façade installation is progressing on 2551-2555 Broadway, a 22-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the architect of record and Paragaon JV Properties III, LLC as the owner, the 276,578-square-foot structure will yield 130 residential units averaging 1,660 square feet apiece, as well as 9,080 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor. Leeding Builders Group, LLC is the general contractor, and RC Structures Inc. is the concrete contractor for the property, which is being built at the corner of Broadway and West 96th Street, next to the 96 Street station servicing the 1,2, and 3 trains.
At number one on our year-end countdown is Skidmore Owings & Merrill‘s mixed-use supertall at 175 Park Avenue in Midtown East, which earlier this month gained approval from the New York City Council. Developed by RXR Realty and TF Cornerstone, the 85-story tower has been reduced in height from 1,642 to 1,575 feet, still enough to surpass Central Park Tower for the title of tallest building in New York by roof height. 175 Park Avenue will eventually rise from the site of the Grand Hyatt hotel between the 108-year-old Beaux Arts Grand Central Terminal and the 91-year-old Art Deco Chrysler Building. The structure will yield 2.1 million square feet of Class A office space; 500 Hyatt hotel rooms on the upper floors spanning 453,000 square feet; 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground, cellar, and second levels; and an elevated, 25,000-square-foot publicly accessible plaza space populated with artwork and views overlooking the surrounding Midtown streets.
The Howard Hughes Corporation has received necessary approvals to construct a new 26-story mixed use development at 250 Water Street in South Street Seaport, Manhattan.

Work is wrapping up on Central Park Tower, a 1,550-foot residential supertall in Midtown and number two on our year-end countdown.

The property yields 179 condominiums marketed by Corcoran Sunshine above a Nordstrom retail podium bound by West 57th and West 58th Streets and Broadway and Seventh Avenue.
