↑ Ceruzzi Properties’s planned 803-foot condo building has been making swift progress this year, and this latest construction site photo by NyConstructionPhoto reveals that the building is now several floors above ground. Work has made significant progress since we last checked in with the condo in March.

Eventually this building will have just 124 apartments spread out over 63 floors. That allows for the average condo size here to be a spacious 1,706 square feet. Previously Ceruzzi was hoping to build a 52-story hotel at the site with 764 hotel rooms. That was eventually abandoned, and work on the condo is expected to end sometime next year.

↑ A trio of developers are bringing 13 condos spread out over two six-story buildings in Williamsburg. The Real Deal has learned that these buildings recently topped out, and that the developers are trying to bring a Tribeca-vibe to Williamsburg with these condo buildings.

At 62 North 3rd Street, there will be a total of eight apartments with condos costing $1.75 million on average. At 66 North 3rd Street, there will be five full-floor apartments costing $3 million on average, and a rooftop terrace. Sales are expected to get underway in August this year. Head on over to TRD for renderings.

↑ Since we last checked in with Jean Nouvel’s MoMA Tower, the building has been fitted with a lot more of its facade, and is also a few stories taller. Eventually this building will stand 1,050 feet and have 82 stories. There will be just 145 condos spread out throughout the building, and there also plans for a Museum of Modern Art gallery at the base, and a restaurant.

The 20-story building is located on Third Avenue between East 38th and 39th Streets, and is being developed by CBSK Ironstate. Apartments here will range in size from studios through three-bedrooms, and amenities will include a rooftop terrace, a residents lounge, and a fitness center. Sales are yet to get underway on this Rawlings Architects-designed condo.

↑ Plans to construct a new building at 79-81 Warren Street have been abandoned in favor of building on the existing structures, Tribeca Citizen has learned. Plans once called for the existing structures to be demolished for a seven-story residential building. Now however plans call for a two-story addition to 81 Warren Street, and a one-story addition to 79 Warren Street. Previously the developer wanted to build 12 apartments here, but it’s not yet clear if this is still in the works.
