YIMBY got a sneak peek of the views from One Vanderbilt‘s future three-story, indoor and outdoor observatory, which is situated 1,020 feet above Midtown East. The upcoming 77-story supertall office skyscraper is designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by SL Green. The tapering steel structure will soon terminate in a staggered, illuminated crown topped with an architectural spire that will push the project’s total height to 1,401 feet.
Work is getting nearer to completion at The Warehouse, aka 520 West 20th Street, a mixed-use office development in West Chelsea. Located between West 19th and West 20th Street in close proximity to the High Line, the project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Elijah Equities. The 50-foot-tall brick section that makes up the bottom portion of the superstructure is finally being revealed with the disassembly of the white netting and scaffolding, while construction of the cantilevering steel structure that sits above it has topped out, bringing the total height to 105 feet tall.
The steel superstructure of 181 Mercer Street is now several floors above street level in Greenwich Village. The massive, 1.9-million-square-foot expansion of the NYU campus is located along Houston Street, directly to the east of I. M. Pei’s University Village complex. The 23-story project is designed by Davis Brody Bond along with KieranTimberlake.
The famous Acme Smoked Fish Corporation is pursuing a major expansion of its existing facilities in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Located at 30 Gem Street, the Acme Smoked Fish factory was founded in 1905 and is now one of the country’s leading producers and distributors of smoked fish and pickled fish products by volume.
YIMBY last reported on 542 West 22nd Street back in 2015, when permits were filed for a new five-story, 31,158-square-foot art gallery. Now, the reinforced concrete superstructure is topped-out, and will soon be home to Zurich-based Hauser & Wirth, which is also the developer of the project. The building, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, is located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea, and stands 95 feet tall.
