Construction is nearing completion on the Taystee Lab Building, an 11-story mixed-use project at 450 West 126th Street in the Manhattanville section of West Harlem. Designed by LEVENBETTS and SLCE Architects and developed by Janus Property Group, the 350,000-square-foot building will yield Class A office space and state-of-the-art lab facilities, as well as space for organizations devoted to life sciences, technology, academic and non-profit programs, retail, and the arts. The property gets its name from the Taystee Cake Bakery Factory, which formerly stood on the site. BR+A Consulting Engineers is helping to construct the structure and LendLease is serving as construction manager.
Façade work is moving along on 2505 Broadway, a 19-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by ODA Architecture LPC and developed by Tomer Yogev of Adam America Real Estate, the 75,000-square-foot structure stands 210 feet tall and will yield a total of 44 residential units, averaging 1,934 square feet apiece, as well as 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The property is located between West 93rd and West 94th Streets.
The rapid pace of construction at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, finally reached the 65-story, 1,031-foot-tall pinnacle over Hudson Yards this past Tuesday. Despite a light flurry of snow showers, the dedication ceremony was successfully held with Tishman Speyer President and CEO Rob Speyer joined on by Gary LaBarbera, President of the Building and Construction Trades Council of Greater New York, Peter Davoren, President and CEO of Turner Construction Company and a group of trade partners. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the steel-framed superstructure is located on a full-block parcel bound by Tenth and Eleventh Avenues and 34th and 35th Streets, and will yield 2.8 million square feet of office space.
Exterior work is nearing completion on Graydon Chelsea, a 16-story residential building at 128 West 23rd Street in Chelsea. Designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects and developed by Valyrian Capital and Pan Brothers, the 40,230-square-foot structure will yield 30 units, averaging 1,200 square feet apiece. The property is located between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
Construction has topped out at 76 Eighth Avenue, a ten-story commercial building in Greenwich Village. The facade was originally designed by Gene Kaufman Architect but YIMBY was recently informed that the redesign with the darker steel exterior that we’ve been seeing is the work of RAAD Studios. Sang Lee, Noviprop, and Plus Development are still the developers of the 120-foot-tall structure, which is planned to yield 30,000 square feet of office space and ground-floor retail. The property is located at the intersection of West 14th Street and Eighth Avenue.
