At number 30 on YIMBY’s annual countdown of the 31 tallest buildings under construction in the New York City metropolitan region is Parcel F, a 559-foot-tall residential skyscraper in the two-tower Gotham Point development in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by The Gotham Organization, RiseBoro Community Partnership, Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group, and the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), the 57-story structure stands alongside its 33-story, 443-foot-tall sibling Parcel G, collectively yielding over 1 million square feet and 1,132 rental apartments. Of these, 75 percent will debut as affordable housing and age-restricted homes for seniors. The development is bound by Center Boulevard to the north, 56th Avenue to the east, and 57th Avenue to the west, and also features a five-acre waterfront park constructed by New York City’s Economic Development Corporation and a 1,100-seat Intermediate High School built by the School Construction Authority. Handel Architects is also the interior designer while BHDM was responsible for the interiors of the model apartment.

Construction is nearing the halfway mark on TSX Broadway, a 46-story hotel at 1568 Broadway in the heart of Times Square.

The project involved the nearly full demolition of the former DoubleTree Suites by Hilton and the full restoration and 30-foot lifting of Kirchoff & Rose’s 1,700-seat, 108-year-old Palace Theater. Pavarini McGovern is in charge of construction for the property, which will feature ten floors of retail space and is slated to cost around $2.5 billion with a capacity to serve 15 million annual visitors.

Pavarini McGovern, LLC is the general contractor, Kit Kemp is the interior designer, and Paul Taylor under the Warren Street Hotel LLC is the owner behind the previously filed permit applications for the project, which is located between Greenwich Street and West Broadway.
