Four construction updates from the week gone by

Via Field Condition

Welcome to our weekly construction/new development roundup where we highlight ongoing work on a handful of NYC projects we may have missed during the week.


Via Field Condition

↑ Extell’s massive Tenth Avenue rental, 555Ten, has nearly wrapped up construction, and Field Condition recently stopped by the construction site to snap up some photos. The 56-story building has a total of 600 apartments, and leasing got underway there in October last year. Among currently available rentals, prices range from $4,010 for a one-bedroom apartment, and go up to a little over $10,000 per month for a three-bedroom, three bathroom unit. The incredibly cushy amenities here include a rooftop pool and lounge, a bowling alley (yep!) and a pet spa.

↑ The home of the former, decade-old Chelsea gay bar, XES Lounge, will now be demolished for a 17-story hotel, DNAinfo reports. The existing four-story structure will likely come down in the next two-three months, but details on the hotel haven’t yet emerged as the developer hasn’t filed plans with the Department of Buildings. The project is being developed by Jin Sup An.

1190 Fulton Street

↑ A new 10-story building is set to rise at the corner of Fulton Street and Bedford Avenue in Bed-Stuy, and YIMBY has the first rendering for the building. From what we know so far, the building will have 30 apartments with units here averaging 800 square feet. There will also be a sizable retail portion on the first two floors measuring just under 15,000 square feet. The project is supposed to wrap sometime in 2020.

15 Hudson Yards

↑ Hudson Yards’ first condo building, 15 Hudson Yards has made significant progress, new construction photos by NyConstructionPhoto have revealed. Eventually this building, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group will stand 88 stories tall and have 285 apartments. Hudson Yards’ Shed will also be incorporated into this building. A host of condos at 15 Hudson Yards have already gone into contract. From the ones available right now, prices range from $3.86 million for a two-bedroom condo, and go up to $13.8 million for a four-bedroom apartment.
