Upper West Side
Construction continues to advance at 125 West End Avenue, a conversion of an eight-story building into a 400,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art life sciences and research laboratory on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Perkins+Will and developed by Taconic Partners, Nuveen Real Estate, and LaSalle Investment Management, the project will be the largest life science development in NYC since the Alexandria Center at 430 East 29th Street, and will help meet the growing demand for occupancy-ready, pre-built lab space in the city. JB&B is leading engineering, JRM Construction is managing construction, and CBRE is handling leasing. The property is located on the west side of the avenue between West 65th and 66th Streets.
Exterior work is progressing on 378 West End Avenue, an 18-story residential development on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by COOKFOX and developed by Alchemy Properties, the project incorporates the restoration of the adjacent 1915 Palazzo-style building at the corner of West End Avenue and West 78th Street, and will yield 58 units with sales and marketing led by Alchemy Properties and Compass. Homes will be available in one- to six-bedroom spreads and a collection of penthouses, with prices ranging from $1,795,000 to nearly $10 million. Leeding Builders Group is the general contractor for 378 West End Avenue, which is located along West 78th Street between West End Avenue and Broadway.

Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by The Roe Corporation, the structure is engineered to meet eco-friendly standards set by the German-based Passive House Institute, which is known to reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling by up to 90 percent. Alyssa Kapito Interiors and BKSK both designed the interiors and Hudson Meridian Construction Group is the general contractor for the project, which is located between West 82nd and 83rd Streets just north of the American Museum of Natural History.
Construction has topped out on The Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation at the American Museum of Natural History, a 230,000-square-foot addition to the institution at 415 Columbus Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Designed by Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang with Tishman Construction Company of New York as the general contractor, the organic-looking, amorphous structure is progressing near the corner of Columbus Avenue and West 79th Street and is surrounded by an abundance of landscaping and tall trees. The project is projected to cost around $383 million and is aiming for LEED Gold certification.
