Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
Construction is moving along at 685 First Avenue, as it nears completion in Murray Hill, Manhattan. The 42-story tower has officially launched sales ahead of its anticipated opening later this year, or early next.
New renderings have been revealed for a 14-story mixed-use building proposed at 21-12 30th Road, in Astoria, Queens. The site is currently under environmental review by the City. Variety Boys and Girls Club is responsible for the development.
The Upper West Side isn’t home to much new development, but that hasn’t stopped the rise of 1865 Broadway, the most substantial structure currently nearing completion in the neighborhood. Now, the 33-story residential tower is finally starting to see its SOM-designed concrete paneling installed along the lower floors, and the result is proving an increasingly attractive addition to the cityscape.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 2221 65th Street, in Mapleton, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Bay Parkway subway station, serviced by the N trains. Great Empire Beverly Realty is listed as behind the applications.
