The past few weeks have brought substantial news surrounding the various supertalls coming to Hudson Yards, including 3 Hudson Boulevard, and 50 Hudson Yards. While both of those projects are still in their early stages of development, 30 Hudson Yards is now taking its place as the flagship tower of the new neighborhood, having surpassed its sibling 10 Hudson Yards’ 895-foot-tall peak, on the way to an eventual 1,296-foot pinnacle.
Office development is a rarity across most neighborhoods in New York City, including Chinatown. But sometimes it still happens, and today, YIMBY has a comprehensive look at the updated design for 100 East Broadway, which also sits next to Pike and Division Streets. YIMBY posted an early design for the site back in 2015, but since then, changes have been substantial.
The World Trade Center’s reconstruction has been in the works for over fifteen years, with multiple iterations of 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center, making the media rounds. Now, the New York Post’s Steve Cuozzo has reported that Deutsche Bank may be returning to the WTC, with the firm possibly set to lease 1.3 million square feet of space within the site’s last unbuilt supertall.
Two years ago, YIMBY reported on initial building applications for 100 Union Avenue, on the corner of Middleton Street, in Williamsburg’s Broadway Triangle section. Now, the site has updated filings, revealing a switch from majority residential to mostly commercial use, with new plans submitted to the DOB by architect Walter J. Hollien superseding the originals by Aufgang Architects. The project will have a total construction area of 62,464 square feet, including a 38-car garage. Besides parking, there will be 26,321 square feet of office space on the first through fourth floors, and 9,173 square feet of residential space above that, divided amongst full-floor units on floors five, six, and seven. Isaac Feuerwerger of 100 Union Holding LLC is listed as the developer.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the rise of the first of two cranes that will be used to build One Vanderbilt, on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, in Midtown East. Now, the second crane has been installed, and the first photos of the supertall’s facade have also been revealed. While glass won’t appear on the actual tower for another year or so, the initial images are very promising for what will become the tallest skyscraper in the neighborhood.
