Construction on the Turkevi Center at 821 First Avenue, in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay, is making quick headway. The future 35-story home for the consulate of the Republic of Turkey is located between East 45th Street and East 46th Street. The glass skyscraper will reach 563 feet when it tops out in the coming months. Perkins Eastman is the designer of the mixed-use tower.
76 Bowery Street recently topped out over Chinatown. The eight-story reinforced concrete structure sits in front of the entrance to the Manhattan Bridge between Canal Street and Hester Street. The new 85-foot-tall building is located within the “Dimond Center” of Chinatown, where a number of small jewelry shops line the busy streets. It is being designed by C3D Architecture and will include 14,488 square feet of office space. Titan Realty & Construction is the general contractor and is overseeing the build.
On their Instagram page, ODA Architecture recently released a new rendering for its upcoming mixed-use residential project at 208 Delancey Street. The site is located on the Lower East Side near the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge, between Pitt Street and Ridge Street on an L-shaped plot. Designers were forced to work around an existing five-story building on the corner of Delancey and Pitt, adding to the structure’s distinctive look. 208 Delancey Street is being developed by New Empire Real Estate Development while Shiming Tam Architect is serving as the architect of record. The closest subway is the F train at the Delancey Street subway station while access to the Williamsburg Bridge is only about five blocks away to the west.
City officials have approved plans submitted by Slate Property Group to construct a new mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at 570 Fulton Street, the structure is designed by Hill West Architects and will contain a combination of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, and office space.
Another major milestone was reached last Friday in conjunction with the celebratory opening of Hudson Yards. 35 Hudson Yards, a 1,000-foot-tall, Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed supertall, launched sales of its 143 residential units. David Childs is the architect of the glass and Jura limestone skyscraper, which is the tallest residential tower at Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the two developers for the 1.1-million-square-foot tower. The interiors are being designed by Tony Ingrao while sales are being handled by Related Sales and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
