Exterior work has resumed on One High Line, a pair of 26- and 36-story mixed-use towers at 76 Eleventh Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of Chelsea. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and developed by Witkoff Group, the 900,000-square-foot complex will yield 236 condominium units, 137 hotel rooms, 85,000 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza. Steve Witkoff purchased the property, formerly known as The XI, in a foreclosure sale for $900 million and partnered with Access Industries and Monroe Capital to complete the stalled project. Gilles & Boissier and Gabellini Sheppard Associates are the interior designers and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales and marketing for the High Line-adjacent property, which is bound by Tenth Avenue to the east, West Street to the west, West 17th Street to the south, and West 18th Street to the north.
Work is continuing on 30 West 39th Street, a 27-story hotel tower in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by Fortuna Realty, the 323-foot-tall structure will yield 330 guest rooms spread across 133,500 square feet. Leeding Builders Group is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, just one block south of Bryant Park.
Demolition is progressing at 570 Fifth Avenue, the site of a potential supertall skyscraper in Midtown, Manhattan. Developed by Extell, the tower could reach an architectural height of 1,100 feet tall with 78 stories in a 1,462,174-square-foot mixed-use hotel and residential scheme. As an office tower, the building would stand 860 feet tall with 47 stories and 1,543,759 square feet. 46/47 Owner LLC is the owner and ALBA Services is the general contractor for the property, which is located at the corner of West 46th Street and Fifth Avenue.
Demolition is wrapping up at 16 East 16th Street, where a historic six-story structure is being converted into a nine-story hotel in Union Square. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Trevor Stahelski under the Gramercy Park House LLC, the project involves the preservation of the façade of the 1891 building, which originally served as the Margaret Louisa Home, a boarding house for women, and later as a health club. MJM Associates Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Union Square West and Fifth Avenue.
Exterior work is continuing to wrap up on 291 Livingston Street, a 22-story hotel tower in Downtown Brooklyn. Designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and developed by Aview Equities and Hello Living, the 189-foot-tall structure will yield 100 hotel rooms and a ground-floor beer garden. The property is located between Nevins Street to the east, Grove Place to the north, and Hanover Place to the west.
