Centered just below Central Park’s southern edge, super-slender supertall 111 West 57th Street will probably be iconic before it is even finished. Of course, that won’t be for a couple of years. However, some visible progress is being made at the construction site in Midtown.
Construction has topped out on the 13-story, 240-unit mixed-use building under development at 3 Journal Square Plaza, in Jersey City‘s Journal Square section. Photos of the structure were recently posted to the YIMBY Forums. Dubbed The Residences at 3 Journal Square and revealed by YIMBY roughly a year ago, it will encompass 219,446 square feet. There will be retail space and residential amenities on the ground floor, followed by rental apartments above. Known amenities include a four-level underground parking garage, which the project was built atop, and a rooftop terrace. Hartz Mountain and Panepinto Properties are the developers. Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is the design architect and the Childs Dreyfus Group is responsible for the interiors. Tocci Building Companies is managing construction. Completion can probably be expected by the end of the year.
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has released preliminary plans, ahead of a presentation set to be given later in September, to develop a 1.1-million-square-foot mixed-use project at 2460 Second Avenue, in northern East Harlem. The city-owned property, currently a vacant 105,000-square-foot former bus depot, was the site of a church and a slave burial ground during the 17th century, Commercial Observer reported. The redevelopment would include a 15,000-square-foot living memorial and cultural center in honor those who were buried there. The rest of the project could include 730 rental apartments, half of which would rent at below-market rates. In addition, the plan calls for 315,000 square feet of commercial space, including retail and offices, and 30,000 square feet for community facilities. It would be accommodated by a 300-car parking garage and 18,000 square feet of outdoor space. Since the site is city-owned, the project must be approved through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). Completion is tentatively set for 2022. The block-encompassing site is located between East 126th and 127th streets.
The 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks is less than two weeks away, and there is new and noticeable progress that has been made on the construction of the World Trade Center.
Since it was entirely below-grade back in January, construction is now up to the seventh floor on the 33-story, 270-unit mixed-use building planned at 120 Nassau Street (a.k.a. 199 Jay Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. The latest photo is courtesy of Tectonic, who posted it to the Forums. The latest building permits indicate a 313,093-square-foot, 425-foot-tall structure is in the works. It will include retail space on the ground floor, office space on parts of the second through eighth floors, and residential units across the rest of the second through eighth floors, as well as the 10th through 32nd floors. The units should average 854 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. A slew of amenities will accommodate the apartments. The Clarett Group is the developer and Woods Bagot is behind the architecture. Completion can probably be expected in 2017 or 2018.
