Permits were filed by developer 925 Capital to build an 8,500 square foot retail building at 101 Bruckner Boulevard, in the South Bronx neighborhood of Port Morris. Among the various retail tenants is a planned rooftop restaurant on top of the 18-foot tall, one-story structure, which YIMBY can now reveal.
20 Times Square, aka 701 Seventh Avenue, is almost complete. The tower already has one of the largest LED screens in Times Square, spanning a whopping 18,000 square feet. In February, doors will officially open to the 517-foot, 42-story, 452-key Marriott Edition hotel, wrapped in glass panels and topped with the logo on its western and southern facades. Witkoff, Ian Schrager Company, Winthrop Realty Trust, and Maefield Development are the developers, while Platt Byard Dovell White Architects (PBDW Architects) is the project’s architect.
232 East 54th Street has topped-out, and now stands 24 stories above a 5,000 square foot plot of land in the Midtown East neighborhood of Sutton Place, between Second and Third Avenues. Ismael Leyva Architects is the designer while Elias Kalimian of Elk Investors is the developer of the project. The 237-foot tall mixed-use building covers 59,381 square feet, and will have 75 units within averaging close to 800 square feet apiece.
Macklowe Properties‘ newest residential tower at 200 East 59th Street stands 35 stories above Midtown East. Its entirety is now nearing completion as work begins to wrap on the lower floors. While advertising may promise elephants, giraffes, and other live animals for prospective residents of the 67 condominiums, reality provides a bold white facade and neatly stacked, and slightly protruding wraparound balconies. The building was designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and rises to a total height of 490 feet from the retail base.
Proposals submitted to NYC’s Department of City Planning reveal a sizable mixed-use development coming to 47-15 34th Avenue in Astoria, Queens.
