Work is continuing on the demolition of 10-20 West 57th Street to make way for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. So far one four-story building has been fully razed, and 20 West 57th Street is currently in the midst of coming down. Scaffolding and black netting shroud the northern elevation with the top floors already torn apart and dismantled. Two other structures in the parcel remain and have been vacated. James Patterson of Ancora Engineering is the applicant of record and Solow Realty & Development Group is the developer of the 672-foot-tall, 383,000-square-foot skyscraper, which will contain 80 residential units spread across 202,738 square feet of space.
The reinforced concrete structure for the 203-room Aloft Hotel at 132 West 28th Street is close to topping out in Chelsea. Peter Poon Architects is the designer and Frank Ng is the developer of the 326-foot-tall, 32-story tower, which is located between Sixth Avenue and Seventh Avenue.
Construction is progressing quickly on the 46-story, dual-brand Marriott Hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea. Installation of the windows on the northern and southern elevations of the topped-out structure is almost entirely completed, and work should begin soon on the metallic cladding that will cover the remainder of the curtain wall. The 470-foot-tall tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect for the McSam Hotel Group and will contain 173,000 square feet of newly built space. Omnibuild is in charge of the construction, and its banner is displayed over the building’s future entrance along West 28th Street.
The first renderings have been released of a new co-living residential and hotel development, which will consist of two ten-story buildings and one four-to-six story building at 1215 Fulton Street in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. Time Square Development Group and Time Square Construction Inc. have partnered on the development and construction of the 219,185-square-foot property, which is located between Bedford Avenue and Arlington Place. Time Square Development Group and London-based The Collective purchased the lot, as well as the adjacent 10 and 16 Halsey Street lots, earlier this year.
OKO Group has released renderings of its partial conversion of the Crown Building at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, which is well underway with lofted scaffolding and a hoist structure fully operational above street level. As announced earlier this year, the property will debut as Aman New York, featuring residences and a hotel spanning the building’s fourth through 24th floors.
