NEW YORK | LOW-RISE / GENERAL Development News + Construction


I wonder what it’s like up there? Seems an odd choice for an architecture firm.


How do I get these guys to stop using my images? I keep sending invoices.

“Sister City” from the Ace hotel people on the bowery. On a side note the amount of retail vacancies was pretty stunning, the landlords must be expecting demand to go up when this hotel opens.


All the buildings on the northeast corner of 34th and 8th have now been demo’d

This is one of the buildings seemingly going up between the hotel at 261 w 34th and whatever will go up directly on the corner

As said, the corner lot is now vacant and we await to see what rises here:

I’ll take that. It’s a massive improvement over the junk that was there. I wouldn’t be surprised if the new building is redeveloped in 20 years in Vornado can obtain that horrible McD on 8th.


fifty stories of luxury rentals in Hell’s Kitchen?


Great news. This should happen on all the NYCHA parking lots and city-owned vacant sites.

50 floors sounds entirely reasonable given the housing shortage and NYCHA need for cash.


My biggest target for replacement (besides the seemingly eternal 375 Pearl) is this awful Mini Storage building on the High Line with its tacky sign. It’s a huge lot too. Surely it’s only a matter of time right?


Took this shot today but unsure of whats going on here. I forgot name. This was from Union City.

There’s a empty parcel, looks like site is cleared. Another apartment complex.
