YIMBY last checked in on the 65-story, 268-unit residential tower being built at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, back in October of 2015, when the structure topped out at 715 feet above street level. Since then, glass installation has been rapidly underway to encapsulate the residential interiors, which will eventually contain a total of 93 condominiums and 175 rental apartments. YIMBY now has close-up renderings of the 632,828-square-foot tower.
Back in November, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 42-story, 362-unit mixed-use building underway at 1 West End Avenue, in the Lincoln Square section of the Upper West Side. At the time, the structure was at least 25 floors above street level, but now the building has topped out, as seen in photos by Tectonic (h/t Curbed). The new building encompasses 932,780 square feet and will contain retail space, in addition to 116 below-market rate rental units, within its six-story base. The tower portion will feature 246 condominium units. Glass installation is currently underway and the stone cladding of the podium appears largely complete. Silverstein Properties and Elad Group are the developers. Pelli Clarke Pelli is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was underway at Extell Development’s 30-story, 83-unit mixed-use building at 200 East 95th Street (a.k.a. 1681 Third Avenue), on the Upper East Side. YIMBY now has photos from Tectonic that show rebar rising from the construction site into the air. Work on the ground floor is currently underway on the 317,664-square-foot building, dubbed The Kent, which will include 13,225 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. There will be 83 condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms, in the 367-foot-tall tower. The residences should average over 3,000 square feet apiece, and amenities listed in the Schedule A include a gym, a pool & sauna, bike storage, residential lounges and playrooms, a “music room,” and an outdoor terrace on the second floor. Beyer Blinder Belle is designing the project. Completion is expected in 2017.
Work began last summer on Pacific Park’s second affordable tower at 38 Sixth Avenue. Now YIMBY has a slew of new facade and interior renderings for the building designed by SHoP Architects.
Work on the conversion of a former manufacturing building not far from the DUMBO waterfront is humming along quite nicely. Yesterday, YIMBY got a hardhat tour of the work underway at 51 Jay Street.
