RockFarmer Properties has launched sales at The Rowan, a new condominium building in Astoria, Queens. The property is located at 21-21 31st Street and is expected to be in full operation by the end of this year. The six-story structure, designed by DXA Studio, is outfitted in light gray brick masonry set above a 210-foot-long glass retail base.
The glass curtain wall is closing in on the final floors of the Virgin Hotel at 1225 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Stantec and developed by Lam Group, the 476-foot-tall tower will yield 460 hotel rooms and 90,000 square feet of retail within the podium. Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the 300,000-square-foot property.
