Superstructure has topped out at 525 West 52nd Street, a two-tower rental development in the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of Manhattan. Developed by Taconic Investment Partners and Mitsui Fudosan America, the project brings 392 rental units to the neighborhood.
Handel Architects' design for the project includes a 22-story tower on West 53rd Street and a 14-story tower fronting West 52nd Street. Both towers are connected by a ground floor lobby and retail space that spans the block. A 13,486-square-foot courtyard will be located between the two towers at the second floor, offering an open space amenity. Combined, the towers will offer 392 units 80 of which will be offered through the affordable housing program.
Along with reaching the topping out milestone, brick and window installation is underway on the West 52nd Street facade. Completion is expected for 2017.
