Finishing touches being put on Gotham West in the Hells Kitchen Neighborhood, I wonder when leasing will begin:

237 West 54th Street is now fully clad. Pretty boring (depressing?) facade. I wonder if they'll paint it?

Internal fit-out and finishing touches are being done on 1715 Broadway.

The base looks fairly decent:

This angle may be becoming repetitive:

Is that an elevator shaft on the base in the lower right?

Cladding is going up at 325 Lexington Avenue in Midtown South. I was disappointed that they abandoned the shifting boxes and the huge blank wall, but the cladding on this building actually looks promising:

400 Central Park South is now up to the 6th Floor. This one will be fun to watch rise!

110 Madison Avenue. Hard to imagine 17 floors rising from this tiny site:

The tower portion is on its way up at 20 West 53rd Street (the Baccarat Tower)! When complete it will rise 610 feet. And cladding has begun (bluer than I expected):

The Fordham University development looks to be topped out, I think they are adding mechanicals to the roof. Unless there is a setback and the tower will continue to rise, but I don't think thats the case.

Foundation work continues at 605 West 42nd Street. This tower is going to be absolutely massive, rising around 700 feet and will have approximately 1000 units.

I hadn't realized how massive this site is, so I think it will take some time before we see it going vertical. Good news is that there was an army of workers on site.

120 West 57th Street is finishing up and looking incredible. My bad photoshop merge:

This building is even more incredible in person. Seriously one of my favorites in the city. Just wish it was a few hundred feet taller...

Work progresses on the ~900 foot tall Coach Tower in Hudson Yards. Looks like the foundation is beginning to take shape:

Couldn't find a thread, but here are some photos from yesterday of the Avalon West Chelsea.

What's Going Up Behind The Pepsi Sign? TF Cornerstone's 4610 Center Blvd:



Quote:
TF Cornerstone is expanding its reign over the residential market on the Long Island City waterfront.

The developer’s fifth tower in the neighborhood — at 4610 Center Boulevard, the site of a January crane collapse — will contain 585 rental units and should be ready later this year, Brownstoner Queens reported.

Arquitectonica is designing the 25-story building, after also designing another nearby TF Cornerstone property – the 41-story, 820-unit rental tower at 4545 Center Boulevard. That building began leasing homes last week.

The crane at 4610 Center Boulevard was hoisting a 24,000-pound load, which was twice its maximum hold. The developer and the site safety manager received a Department of Buildings violation, as previously reported.

New boutique condo has been proposed for 155 18th Street. I noticed recently that all the businesses along this stretch have moved.

Screenshots of 45 East 60th Street from the DOB permits have posted by NYguy at SSP. Looks like this tower will top out at 824 ft.

A peek at some detailing shows a high quality building...

Zeckendorf needs to acquire the three dilapidated brownstones to the east of this tower. They should be restored or razed. In their current condition, they are serious eyesores, which detract from the new tower at street level.
