Located to the south of the New York Stock Exchange on a narrow rectangular strip of land along Broad Street, the Financial District’s first residential supertall will soon rise at 45 Broad Street. The tower will eventually soar 1,115 feet above the crowded streets of Lower Manhattan, and should make a very dramatic impact on the skyline in the coming years. Clad with bronze-colored aluminum panels and an intricate mix of sleek vertical and curved lines, it is the 5th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in New York City. CetraRuddy is the architect, while the developers are Madison Equities and Pizzarotti LLC.
Major progress has been made for Brooklyn’s first supertall over the past several weeks. Excavation has continued apace, and more materials have also been delivered to 9 DeKalb Avenue as the year wraps up. The tower is the 6th-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown, and will dramatically change the skyline of Brooklyn in the coming years. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and the Chetrit Group, the 1,066-foot-tall residential and mixed-use project will house approximately 500 housing units atop its rejuvenation of an historic retail podium.
Last week, the final piece of the third and highest apex of Jean Nouvel’s first residential skyscraper was anchored and installed over Midtown. 53 West 53rd Street now stands 1,050 feet tall, and is currently the 7th-tallest skyscraper under construction in New York City. With its distinct pointed crown and dark diagrid facade, it is certainly a very unique building, and has been in the making for over a decade. The tower is being developed by Hines, while SLCE Architects and Adamson Associates are the architects of record. The condominiums are being marketed by Corcoran.
Taking up one full block bound by West 34rd Street, West 35th Street, Tenth Avenue, and Eleventh Avenue, 66 Hudson Boulevard is currently the eighth-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown. Designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, the glass commercial office supertall will literally put a spin on the idea of the outdoor terrace. The 65-story tower is being developed by Tishman Speyer, with foundations already progressing for the 1,031-foot-tall and 2.85 million square foot structure. The official non-marketing address for the project is 509 West 34th Street.
Work on Hudson Yards’ largest commercial office tower is continuing apace at 50 Hudson Yards. Located across the street to the north of 30 Hudson Yards, the last site under construction as part of Related’s Phase I sits along Tenth Avenue and West 34th Street. It is being designed by architect Lord Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, and is currently the ninth-tallest being built in New York City. Related Companies, Oxford Properties, and Mitsui Fudosan are the developers for this project.
