The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will again review renderings and proposals from Roman & Williams Buildings and Interiors to install new signage and illuminated canopies at the historic Tin Building in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport Historic District.
Installation of the wavy glass curtain wall has begun on the steel-framed addition atop Tiffany & Co.’s flagship store at 727 Fifth Avenue in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by OMA partners Shohei Shigematsu and Jake Forster, the project involves a three-story addition over the original roof line of the 71-year-old Art Moderne building, which is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street. CallisonRTKL is the architect of record and Peter Marino Architects is handling the interior renovations for the iconic jewelry store. Tiffany & Co. temporarily relocated its flagship to an adjacent storefront at 6 East 57th Street during construction.
Work is nearing completion on One Wall Street, the largest office-to-residential conversion project in New York City’s history. Developed by Macklowe Properties, the 21st century overhaul is expected to cost around $1.5 billion, transforming the 90-year-old, 564-foot-tall Art Deco skyscraper with a multi-story addition designed by SLCE Architects as well as a 44,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market and a Life Time fitness center on the lower levels. The Financial District property will yield 566 new units with sales handled and marketed by Compass.
Proposals now under review by the Department of City Planning reveal a new retail building and the enlargement of two existing buildings within Staten Island’s Tysens Park Shopping Center. Located at 2712 Hylan Boulevard, the Tysens Park Shopping Center occupies 12.5 acres or approximately 546,000 square feet. The property comprises eight single-story commercial buildings and 731 accessory off-street parking spaces.
Construction has topped out on 141 East Houston Street, a ten-story mixed-use office building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Roger Ferris + Partners and developed by East End Capital and K Property Group, the 68,000-square-foot structure will yield office space as well as retail on the ground floor and two cellar levels. The property is located between Forsyth Street to the west and Eldridge Street to the east on a plot that was formerly occupied by the Sunshine Cinema.
