The future 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, is making rounds again in the real estate world with the first seven publicly listed units now arriving on the market. Extell is one step closer to a projected $4 billion sellout for what is now the tallest building in New York City by roof height, as the supertall closes in on Chicago’s Willis Tower for the title of tallest in the Western Hemisphere, by roof. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill are the architects of the glass tower. Interiors for the 179 residences are being designed by Rottet Studio.
The Lofts Pier Village has officially topped-out in the seaside village of Long Branch, New Jersey. Extell Development Company recently celebrated the milestone achievement alongside key members of the project team, who have already been awarded for their contribution to the local community by the New Jersey Builders Association.
Construction is now wrapping up at 90 Morton Street, in the West Village, and closings are about to commence for its 35 residences. The building was once an abandoned, eight-story printing warehouse, but has now been transformed into a 122,000-square-foot, twelve-story condominium project. Asaf Gottesman of Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture is the designer, while Marc Turkel of Leroy Street Studio is head of interior designs. Brack Capital Real Estate is the developer of the 150-foot-tall structure, while Reuveni Real Estate is leading sales and marketing. Sales began in April 2018, with prices for the homes starting at $5.3 million.
Park Avenue Green, a new affordable housing community in the South Bronx is officially the largest Passive House development in North America. Defined by a stringent checklist of sustainable requirements, the project’s design reduces the expenditure of energy by incorporating a thoroughly sealed building envelope, advanced ventilation systems, low-energy cooling systems, and rooftop solar panels.
Permits have been filed for two residential buildings with 13 luxury units at 618-620 East 31st Street in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located between Farragut Road and Glenwood Road, the sub-divided interior lot is two blocks north of the Flatbush Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Jackie Peretz of JSP Properties NY is the developer.
