Demolition work is continuing at 270 Park Avenue, where JP Morgan Chase is tearing down its current 707-foot-tall headquarters to construct a new 1,425-foot-tall, 2.5-million-square-foot home. Designed by Foster + Partners, the future Midtown East supertall is the fifth-tallest project underway in New York City.
As 2019 comes to a close, excavation and foundation work has yet to begin at 45 Broad Street, where the sixth-tallest construction project in New York is set to rise. Designed by CetraRuddy and developed by Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC, the residential skyscraper is planned to reach a height of 1,115 feet above the Financial District, just steps from the New York Stock Exchange.
Work has taken a big step forward at 9 DeKalb Avenue, the outer boroughs’ first supertall skyscraper and number seven on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest projects underway in New York City. The construction crane has been assembled at the Downtown Brooklyn site and things are gearing up for the start of vertical progress in 2020. The 73-story, 1,066-foot-tall tower is designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS, the same duo behind 111 West 57th Street.
Construction is moving along at 66 Hudson Boulevard, aka The Spiral, the eighth-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City in YIMBY’s annual countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the massive commercial office tower is rapidly ascending toward its 1,031-foot-tall parapet over the Midtown neighborhood of Hudson Yards. Tishman Speyer is the developer, Turner Construction Company is the construction manager, and Banker Steel is in charge of fabricating the 66-story, $3.7 billion supertall.
The steel superstructure is continuing to rise skyward at 50 Hudson Yards, the number-nine project on YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest buildings under construction in New York City. Workers have made a significant amount of progress since we checked in one year ago, when foundations were just beginning to make their way toward street level. Now, a mass of steel beams, columns, and trusses for the wide floor plates are ascending around the reinforced concrete core. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the 1,011-foot-tall commercial office supertall is the final segment of the first phase of Related Companies‘ Hudson Yards complex. Oxford Properties and Mitsui Fudosan are developing the 2.9-million-square-foot structure, the largest component in the 28-acre master plan by volume.
