Partial Building Collapse; 505 West 19th St. Ditches Scaffolding

MIDTOWN WEST—A building across the street from Bjarke Ingels' tetrahedron has partially collapsed. Although it hasn't been confirmed, it appears to be at the site of the incoming TF Cornerstone development at 606 West 57th Street. The building at the site is currently undergoing demolition. No serious injuries have been reported. Animal snagged some shots at the site, above, and there are more here. [Animal]

WEST CHELSEA—Scaffolding is coming down from the east tower of Thomas Juul-Hansen's High Line-embracing condo building at 505 West 19th Street (h/t tipster). The two-tower building that's connected by a lobby underneath the High Line started getting glassed in in August. Sales in the building launched in March of 2014, and a rep for the project confirms that its three rather pricey penthouses will hit the market this spring. Also coming up, a model unit for the building. [CurbedWire inbox; previously]


This appears to be the building's east tower, which will have 25 "relatively normal-sized" apartments.
