Construction is rising on 1841 Broadway, a 25-story residential building on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by INC Architecture & Design with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and developed by Global Holdings Management Group, the 281-foot-tall structure will yield 180,813 square feet with 173 market rate and affordable housing units as well as 11,741 square feet of retail space on the first two levels. Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor and DeSimone Consulting Engineers is the façade consultant for the property, which is located at the corner of Broadway and West 60th Street, just north of Columbus Circle and the southwest corner of Central Park.
Façade work is continuing on The Paxton, a 43-story mixed-use skyscraper at 540 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Marvel Architects and developed by Jenel Management, the 511-foot-tall structure will yield 330,000 square feet with 327 residential units, 71,844 square feet of commercial space, and 22,054 square feet of retail housed in the multi-story podium. YIMBY last reported that M.N.S. is handling sales and marketing for the homes, which are expected to range from studios to three-bedroom layouts. The property is located at the intersection of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street.
Work is nearing completion on a two-story penthouse addition atop Manhattan’s historic Textile Building at 295 Fifth Avenue in Midtown South is nearly complete. Designed by Studios Architecture, the 34,000-square-foot penthouse will contain a mix of collaborative workspaces and several landscaped terraces.
Façade installation is nearing the roof parapet of 141 Willoughby Street, a 24-story commercial building in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Fogarty Finger with SLCE as the executive architect and developed by Savanna Real Estate, the 400,000-square-foot structure will yield a mix of Class A offices and lower-level retail space, and is expected to achieve LEED certification. Gilbane Building Company and Savcon are the general contractors, Thornton Tomasetti is the structural engineer, and AKF Group LLC is the MEP engineer of the property, which rises from a trapezoidal plot bound by Willoughby Street to the south, Gold Street to the west, and Flatbush Avenue Extension to the east.
A new rendering has emerged for 27-49 Jackson Avenue revealing a dramatic change in design for the stalled project in Long Island City, Queens. Originally designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work began in 2018 on what was to be a 14-story, 146-foot-tall residential building with 37 units. The site has sat idle for the past couple of years, with only a partial section of the reinforced concrete superstructure formed. While the dimensions and scope of the new iteration remain unclear, the rendering shows that the building’s footprint will be extended further to the east to the corner of Jackson Avenue and 42nd Road. 27-51 Jackson Avenue is the current owner of the property and DHC Contracting Inc. is now the general contractor.
