|Steiner Studios will open a second film and television production facility in Brooklyn, city officials announced Thursday. The city’s Economic Development Corporation and the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment selected Steiner to open a 500,000-square-foot production space at Bush Terminal in Sunset Park, as part of the Made in New York Campus, currently being transformed into a garment manufacturing and media production hub. The studio has operated a facility across 50 acres at the Brooklyn Navy Yard since 2004, one of the largest production spaces outside of Hollywood.|
The $320 million project includes eight new soundstages, a new parking facility, and the gut renovation of two historic buildings. Part of the plan includes completion of the Bush Terminal Piers Park with a new playground and $25,000 per year for recreational programs. Dattner Architects is handling the project’s design.
OMA designs glass volume to top Tiffany & Co's New York flagship store
OMA New York, led by Shohei Shigematsu, has unveiled its design for a glass addition to top the historic Tiffany & Co store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.
The project involves the preservation of the jewellery brand's 80-year old flagship location, a renovation of its ground floor and the construction of a rectangular glass volume that will span three storeys, adding space for hosting exhibitions and events [...]
The project is currently under construction and is expected to complete in Spring 2022 [...]
Construction is set to resume at 50 West 66th Street, the soon-to-be tallest skyscraper on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Progress had been stalled on the 775-foot-tall residential tower until recently, when a joint venture was formed between Extell Development Company and global investment entity Tennor Holding B.V. to complete the project. Snøhetta is the designer of the 69-story structure, which will eventually eclipse the parapet of the neighborhood’s current title-holding skyscraper, 200 Amsterdam Avenue.
