Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you a new rendering of the mixed-use supertall tower planned at 45 Broad Street, in the Financial District, but now new building applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings. The 371,634-square-foot tower, which has been marketed as 86 stories, will actually have 64 real floors and will stand 1,115 feet above street level. It will also have 150 residential units, which is significantly less than the previous figure of 245. The apartments should average 1,394 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums, and units will come in studio to three-bedroom configurations. There will also be 48,077 square feet of office space on the third through eighth floors. The project’s 20,000 square feet of amenities will be located on three sub-cellar levels and the ninth through eleventh floors. Madison Equities, Pizzarotti-IBC, and AMS Acquisitions are the developers, and CetraRuddy is behind the design. Excavation is expected to begin later this year, with completion of the tower scheduled for 2018.
One of the most prominent new developments in New York City is currently under construction on Manhattan’s far West Side. Hudson Yards, when complete, will be a massive mixed-use complex, and now, thanks to a recently-launched website, we have some new looks at the project.
The 79-story tower headed for 23-15 44th Drive in Long Island City will likely become the first supertall building in Queens.
The stunningly tall towers rising along 57th Street are taking the Manhattan skyline to a whole new level. Despite their relatively small footprints, some projects are actually replacing true architectural gems. Between the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2016, the LeFrak Organization and Vornado Realty leveled three pre-war buildings at 27-33 West 57th Street. Although the latest reports indicated a “seven star hotel,” final plans are still unknown. Given the site’s Billionaires’ Row location and proximity to Central Park, whatever gets built will most likely be very tall, and very expensive.
Until now, the residential supertall boom has been focused on the core of Midtown, with One57, 432 Park, 217 West 57th Street, and 111 West 57th Street all rising in the blocks between Eighth and Park avenue. Now, we have fresh renderings for Kohn Pedersen Fox’s entry into a design contest for 151 East 60th Street, which would rise on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 60th Street, stretching Midtown’s new skyscraper crown a few blocks northeast of its current local maxima.
