Architecture firm Gensler will again appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in defense of proposals to construct a rooftop addition at One Broadway in Battery Park, Manhattan. Following lukewarm feedback from the commission, new renderings reveal an overall reduction of mass including structural height, exterior cladding, and shape.
Construction has begun on the structural frames for 425 Park Avenue‘s trio of decorative parapet fins in Midtown East. The 47-story, 897-foot-tall building is designed by Norman Foster, head of Foster + Partners, and is being developed by L&L Holding Company LLC. Adamson Associates is the architect of record.
Architecture firm Studio Gang’s stunning contribution to Manhattan’s iconic High Line Park is now complete. Known simply as ‘Solar Carve’, the 10-story office building features a prismatic, gem-like façade designed to reduce the structure’s shadow on the surrounding neighborhood.
The first stages of excavation are underway at the site of Gene Kaufman Architect‘s future commercial office building at 76 Eighth Avenue. Sang Lee is the developer of the 120-foot-tall structure, which is located on the border of the Meatpacking District and the West Village at the busy corner of Eighth Avenue and West 14th Street. The development will contain 30,000 square feet of office space in addition to ground-floor retail area.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story office building at 310 Hudson Street in Hudson Square, Manhattan. Located between Spring Street and Vandam Street, the lot is two blocks west of the Spring Street subway station, serviced by the C and E trains. Andrew Arel of Disney Corporate Real Estate is listed as the owner behind the application under the Hudson Square Realty LLC .
