Progress on the exterior enclosure continues at the Durst Organization's typology-busting residential building on the Midtown West waterfront. The 470 foot tall "courtscraper," designed by architect Bjarke Ingels of BIG, will bring 709 rental units and 45,000 square feet of commercial retail space.
There has been significant progress since the previous site tour, with much of the herringbone-patterned bay windows installed on the north façade. Meanwhile, installation of the metal and glass on the south and west façade has surpassed the half way mark. Curtain wall installation has also started at the ground floor retail space at the southwest corner.
Completion is slated for sometime next year.
