Progressing at breakneck speed since the demolition of the original extant commercial buildings in early 2016, One Vanderbilt‘s rise into the Midtown skyline has occurred at the quickest pace since the Roaring Twenties, when the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building were each completed within very short timeframes.
As the Moise Safra Cultural Center approaches full completion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, YIMBY has an exclusive look at renderings of the forthcoming cultural hub’s exterior and interiors. Located at 130 East 82nd Street, the 14-story building will include 73,000 square feet of religious and recreational facilities, event spaces, dining halls, and office suites.
Permits have been filed for a 22-story commercial office building at 1241 Broadway in Midtown, Manhattan. The architect of the project will be Skidmore Owings & Merrill, who arguably have had the largest impact on New York City’s built environment compared to any other firm. First formed in 1939, they specialize in high-end office space, like the soon-to-be tower in today’s post.
Located in South Williamsburg, which like most of Brooklyn has been undergoing rapid and major changes over the past decade, a small building at the intersection of Broadway, South Sixth Street and Bedford Avenue, has some new renderings. Cayuga Capital Management LLC is the developer, and has revealed fresh new images of the project. They previously purchased the sharp, triangular vacant lot back in 2016.
441 Ninth Avenue, between 9th Avenue & Dyer Avenue and 34th Street & 35th Street, is undergoing a major transformation. The original eight-story structure was built in 1962 and once housed a warehouse, before being converted into an office building. Now, interiors are once again being renovated, and will sit beneath an all-new 17-story addition atop the square-shaped structure. Cove Property and Baupost Group are the developers of the 700,000 square foot project, named “Hudson Commons,” which is rising thanks to a $479 million construction loan secured last November.
