As construction nears full completion at 19 Dutch in Manhattan’s Financial District, today, the developer has officially launched leasing for the luxury residential tower. Designed by New York’s GKV Architects with SLCE serving as architect of record, the gleaming, glass-clad structure soars 770 feet above Lower Manhattan.
Construction at Extell’s 138 Willoughby, aka Brooklyn Point, is moving along quickly, with concrete now at the tenth floor. Once opened, the skyscraper will complete the City Point mega-development in Downtown Brooklyn. The mixed-use multi-building expansion has already produced two residential towers and a 600,000 square foot retail space with a food market, grocery store, event space, and movie theater.
Speculation has been raised around what Avery Hall Investments would do after purchasing a site from Brooklyn Law School for $76.5 million back in 2016, and acquiring 50,000 square feet of air rights from two nearby properties for another $16 million. Now, permits have been filed for a 21-story mixed use building at 7 Boerum Place, in Downtown Brooklyn. The high-rise will rise on the corner of Fulton Mall, a pedestrian area between Flatbush Avenue and Adams Street that houses over 200 stores. Avery Hall is partnering with Allegra Holding and Aria Development Group.
A newly minted tower has risen above the New York harbor. The Helmut Jahn-designed 50 West is a 783-foot tall residential building in Manhattan’s Financial District with curtain wall glass and distinctive angled crown. The project has been about a decade since it started, and now proudly stands with early move-ins, nearly complete. It started in 2008, right before the Great Depression. The glass façade was finished in February, and interior installation has started. Time Equities is responsible for the development.
