Work is underway at BLDG Management's new residential tower at 222 West 44th Street and you can now see what it will look like. New renderings of the Handel Architects-designed tower, which is replacing a garage that has already been demolished, were published by 6sqft on Friday (though at least one of those images has been at the work site since August). At 43 stories, it will be two stories taller than reported back in February. The 556-foot-tall building will have 429 units with 87 of them being affordable.
The "torqued" design will apparently grant more light and air to the units. The project is expected to be complete in 2017.
