The first renderings have been released for a two-tower, mixed-use development at 11 Lawton Street in New Rochelle. YIMBY reported the permit filing in June for what will be the city’s first skyscraper. This project includes a 605-foot-tall, 48-story tower with approximately 600 residential units split between rentals and condominiums and a secondary 23-story tower that will contain a 190-room hotel.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 1755 Pitkin Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located between Osborn Street and Watkins Street, the lot is seven blocks from Sutter Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Samir Patel under the 1755 Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Longtime collaborators McSam Hotel Group and Gene Kaufman Architects have once again paired up on a new hotel development in Midtown, Manhattan. Located at 223 West 46th Street, the project replaces a former parking lot. According to the architect, the building will rise at least 26 stories, although the rendering depicts a tower with 34 floors.
Scaffolding and black netting shroud the façades of 110 and 112 Liberty Street in preparation for the demolition of the Financial District structures. The site is located across the street from Four World Trade Center, aka 150 Greenwich Street, and sits adjacent to the intersection of Liberty Street and Church Street. The pair of buildings will soon make way for a ground-up 30-story hotel designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects and developed by Eddie Hidary of 112 Liberty Associates LLC, which filed demolition permits in March.
Work on Virgin Hotel‘s reflective glass curtain wall is making quick progress at 1225 Broadway in NoMad. Designed by Stantec, the 476-foot-tall superstructure topped out in February, and over the past months the envelope has climbed closer to the building’s pinnacle. The tower will feature 300,000 square feet of newly built space, of which most will be occupied by its 460 hotel rooms. The lower podium floors will contain 90,000 square feet of retail. Lam Group is the developer of the property, and Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Group will be in charge of managing the hotel.
