Foundation work has begun at 159 Broadway, a 26-story mixed-use residential project in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Cornell Realty Management LLC, the 133,340-square-foot project is located across the street from Peter Luger Steakhouse and directly abuts the 145-year-old landmarked Williamsburgh Savings Bank. The structure will eventually top out at 277 feet and become one of the tallest buildings in the neighborhood.
Construction has topped out on 120 Water Street, a 28-story Hotel Indigo in the Financial District. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architects and developed by Atlas Hospitality, the slender reinforced concrete superstructure will yield 52,000 square feet with 128 hotel rooms managed by Fortuna Realty Group.
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.
Construction is approaching the final floors of the NoMad Ritz Carlton Hotel. Located at 1185 Broadway at the northern intersection of West 28th Street, the reinforced concrete structure will soon top out at 580 feet tall, yielding 150,000 square feet and 250 guest rooms. The 40-story skyscraper is designed by Rafael Vinoly and developed by Marriott, Ritz Carlton Hotels, and Flag Luxury Properties. The interiors are being designed by Yabu Pushelberg.
The final exterior touches and glass panels are going in at 10 East 30th Street. The ground-up project rises just over 200 feet tall and will open as a new 20-story hotel in the Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue. The reinforced concrete superstructure is covered with a dark exterior on the eastern and western elevations, while a glass curtain wall covers the stepped northern facade and flat southern profile. The upper floors have a mix of sloped glass and setbacks that will make room for outdoor terraces for some of the hotel rooms. Brooklyn-based firm Baobab Architects is the designer of the project.
