The housing lottery is now open for The Cove, an 18-story residential development at 43-12 Hunter Street in Long Island City, Queens. Developed by Rockrose Development and designed by SLCE Architects with interiors by Slade Architecture, the building yields a total 123 rentals in a mix of studios, one-, and two-bedroom units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are the 37 apartments at 130 percent of the area median income, ranging from $68,229 to $159,640.
Exterior work is moving along on the residential conversion and retail addition at One Wall Street in the Financial District. Designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Macklowe Properties, the projected $1.5 billion undertaking is the largest office-to-condominium conversion in New York City history. When complete, the property will yield 566 residential units with sales handled and marketed by CORE, as well as a 44,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market and a Life Time fitness center on the lower levels.
There has definitely been a huge amount of vertical progress and activity at the site of 555 West 38th Street. The rising reinforced concrete edifice is eventually going to culminate at a 570-foot-tall roof parapet and become a residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects and developed by Rockrose with SLCE as the architect of record, there will be a total of 52 floors and 598 rental units. The property is found along Eleventh Avenue between West 38th Street and West 39th Street and is directly across from the Jacob K. Javits Center.
Exterior work on Robert A. M. Stern Architects‘ limestone-clad 220 Central Park South is imminently close to completion. The 950-foot-tall residential skyscraper is located between Seventh Avenue and Columbus Circle and yields 593,000 square feet of some of the most expensive living space in New York. Vornado Realty Trust is the developer of the $1.4-billion, 67-story project and is expecting a $3.4 billion sellout. SLCE Architects is the executive architect, while Thierry W. Despont is the interior designer of the 118 condominiums.
Work appears to have stalled on 611 West 56th Street, aka 823 Eleventh Avenue, a 450-foot-tall condominium building in Hell’s Kitchen. Designed by Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza with SLCE as the architect of record and developed by Sumaida + Khurana and LENY, the 37-story tower will yield 80 units designed by Gabellini Sheppard Associates.
