The starchitect-led projects that will transform NYC’s skyline
Comments:0

Starchitecture is alive and well in New York City, with many skyline-altering developments coming from big-name, award-winning architects. And since we last surveyed the starchitecture landscape in NYC, much has changed: Some buildings have wrapped up; some big-name firms have announced their first contributions to the city; and others are, sadly, no longer with us. (RIP, Zaha.)

All of that makes now the perfect time to look at the buzzy projects by boldface architects that will dominate the landscape in the years to come.

Now, the caveats: The developments we’ve included are ones that are either pre-construction or are not yet finished; that’s why some of the more noteworthy star projects of the past few years (Zaha Hadid’s High Line condo, BIG’s courtscraper) aren’t included. And yes, we’ve been liberal with the “starchitect” moniker, but the firms working on these projects are all buzzy, award-winning, or otherwise well-known outside of the cloistered world of architecture fiends.

And lastly, projects are listed alphabetically; if we’ve left something off, let us know in the comments.

1. David Adjaye: 130 William St

130 William St
New York, NY 10038

Given British starchitect David Adjaye’s body of work—which includes the award-winningNational Museum of African American History and Culturein Washington, D.C., and Denver’s Museum of Contemporary Art—it’s no surprise that his firm’s first Manhattan skyscraper is anything but a boring glass box. The condo building at 130 William Street is instead a nod to NYC’s past—specifically, the masonry architecture that’s found throughout the city. The 66-story building will have 244 apartments, with studios beginning at $650,000. It’s expected to be complete by 2020.

2. David Adjaye: Studio Museum in Harlem

144 W 125th St
New York, NY 10027
(212) 864-4500

The Studio Museum in Harlem will construct a new facility designed by architect David Adjaye at the site of its current space on West 125th Street. The new museum HQ will be a marked improvement over the old building: It’ll span 82,000 square feet, with more than 17,000 of that devoted to galleries and exhibition space. The five-story building will have plenty of public space—a cafe and shop, lecture halls, and more—along with an expansive roof deck and room for the museum’s staff on the fifth floor. Construction will begin later this year, and should wrap by 2021.

3. Tadao Ando: 152 Elizabeth Street

152 Elizabeth Street
New York, NY

Pritzer Prize winner Tadao Ando’s first NYC project is this sleek condo building on the corner of Elizabeth and Kenmare Streets, a seven-story “jewel box” incorporating his signature poured in place concrete, galvanized steel, and glass. It will also feature the city’s largest residential green wall, to be planted with foliage like Boston ivy and Virginia creepers. When completed, there will be seven residences with prices ranging from $5.75 million for a half-floor unit to full-floor apartments that start at $14.8 million.

4. Santiago Calatrava: St. Nicholas National Shrine

130 Liberty St
New York, NY 10006

Now that the Oculus is (finally) finished, Santiago Calatrava has turned his attention to the St. Nicholas National Shrine, the design for which will be similar to the WTC Transportation Hub in its stark white marble-ness. The shrine’s location has moved in the years since Calatrava came on as architect: It will now sit within Liberty Park, which opened in 2016. Though some construction progress has been made, financial woes led to a work stoppage at the site at the end of 2017.

5. Diller Scofidio + Renfro/Rockwell Group: The Shed

10th Ave & W 30th St
New York, NY 10001

The cultural center within Hudson Yards is moving right along along, and will eventually sit on the High Line’s northern spur near Tenth Avenue. The Shed, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Rockwell Group, will rise six stories and contain two beam-free gallery spaces. It also has a retractable shell, It’s expected to open in 2019.

6. Diller Scofidio + Renfro/Rockwell Group: 15 Hudson Yards

15 Hudson Yards
New York, NY 10001

In addition to the Shed, DS+R and Rockwell Group are collaborating on 15 Hudson Yards, one of the residential skyscrapers within the west side megaproject. The building will be split between 285 market-rate condos and 106 affordable apartments; sales launched for the former in 2016, with apartments starting at $2 million. The building is also home to plenty of over-the-top perks, including a 75-foot swimming pool, a screening room, and private dining rooms. Residents should be moving in by the ed of the year.

7. Diller Scofidio + Renfro: MoMA Expansion

11 W 53rd St
New York, NY 10019
(212) 708-9400

Visit Website

One of the more hotly contested cultural renovations of recent years is DS+R’s revamp of the Museum of Modern Art, which includes constructing new galleries and expanding into Jean Nouvel’s forthcoming skyscraper next door. (The plan also led to the destruction of the old American Folk Art Museum building.) The idea behind the design is to make it more open and welcoming; plans include revamping the museum’s lobby and the “Bauhaus Stair,” expanding gallery space, and opening up the east lobby in the museum’s Ronald S. and Jo Carole Lauder Building.

8. Foster + Partners: One Hundred East Fifty Third Street

100 E 53rd St
New York, NY 10022

After many years and setbacks, Norman Foster’s glassy condo tower at 100 East 53rd Street is on its way to being completed. It’s located next to the Seagram Building, and taken together, the buildings seem to be two sides of the same coin: the Seagram is one of the best examples of Van der Rohe’s Functionalist ideals, while One Hundred East Fifty Third takes inspiration from that idea, according to Foster. The Seagram is a striking black column, rising a little more than 500 feet above midtown; Foster’s building, meanwhile, is an austere white, and dwarfs its neighbor by about 200 feet.

9. Foster + Partners: Red Hoek Point

280 Richardson St
Brooklyn, NY 11222

While one developer’s plan for a massive tech complex on the Red Hook waterfront faces uncertainty, Thor Equities’s Norman Foster-designed project is moving right along. The complex has been dubbed Red Hoek Point, which is a spin on Roode Hoek, the name Dutch colonists gave the area in the 1600s. The project will replace the Revere Sugar Refinery, just to the east of Red Hook artery Van Brunt Street; once complete, it’ll have two buildings with nearly 800,000 square feet of office space, plus retail and public parkland designed by SCAPE.

10. Foster + Partners: 425 Park Avenue

425 Park Ave
New York, NY 10022

This glassy addition to the canyon of buildings on Park Avenue, designed by Norman Foster, finally got its groundbreaking in 2015, and has been steadily rising ever since. The skyscraper will be one of Park Avenue’s tallest buildings, at 893 feet (though not as tall as its neighbor to the north), and will hold offices and a huge restaurant by the folks behind Eleven Madison Park.

11. Foster + Partners: 50 Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards
New York, NY 10001

In early 2016, a McDonald’s on the corner of 34th Street and Tenth Avenue was demolished to make way for 50 Hudson Yards, which will stand 58 stories, making it the second tallest tower at Hudson Yards. It’s the work of British starchitect Norman Foster, and it’ll house offices and retail. One notable difference from the development’s other buildings: This one still has a few more years to go before it’s complete—it’s scheduled to open in 2022.

12. Zaha Hadid: 220 Eleventh Avenue

220 11th Ave
New York, NY 10001

One of Zaha Hadid’s final commissions before her untimely 2016 death was a new residential project at Eleventh Avenue and 26th Street, not too far from her High Line condos. The Moinian Group worked with the firm prior to Hadid’s death, and the shape it will take—steered, no doubt, by the architect herself—will be a mixed-use building, with “signature loft-like condominium residences,” along with a yet-to-be-determined cultural institution that the developer hopes will be a “hub” for the neighborhood. A teaser site was unveiled in 2017, but few details have come about the site since.

13. Thomas Heatherwick: ‘Vessel’

W. 34th St
New York, NY 10001

Thomas Heatherwick’s massive sculpture—excuse us, “public landmark”—is the much-anticipated centerpiece of the new public square at Hudson Yards. It will sit at the center of a five-acre public park, with a design by Nelseon Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, and is intended, per Heatherwick, to “lift people up to be more visible and enjoy new views and perspectives of each other.” And when Heatherwick says “lift people up,” he means it literally. The unusual piece will feature 154 interconnected staircases that altogether will create of mile’s worth of climbable pathways. It’s due to open next spring.

14. Thomas Heatherwick: Pier 55

55 Hudson River Greenway
New York, NY 10011

After a drama-filled year at the Meatpacking District’s Pier 55 park project, construction on the futuristic green space is finally underway again. Its billionaire benefactor Barry Diller threatened to pull the plug on the space last year, but after an intervention from Governor Andrew Cuomo (of all people), Diller reconsidered. What’s more, the City Club of New York will no longer be lobbing any more lawsuits against the project; Cuomo forced all the warring sides—Diller, the City Club, and Douglas Durst (outed as the benefactor of the City Club)—to come to a consensus, so that the park, designed by Thomas Heatherwick, can move forward.

15. Herzog & de Meuron: Gowanus Bat Cave

340 3rd Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11215

For years, the former Brooklyn Rapid Transit powerhouse on the banks of the Gowanus Canal—better known to many as the Bat Cave—has sat empty, but for the squatters who once called it home, and the graffiti artists who turned it into a Brooklyn icon. But soon, 56 Leonard architects Herzog & de Meuron will revamp the space, to be called the Powerhouse Workshop, into “a factory of sorts for the production of art”—woodworkers, metalworkers, ceramicists, and more will be just some of the people to use the building as both a work and exhibition space.

Herzog & de Meuron

16. Steven Holl: Hunters Point Community Library

47 Center Blvd
Long Island City, NY 11101

Holl’s futuristic-looking Hunters Point Library in Queens has been more than a decade in the making, and still has a ways to go before it opens; it cost $32 million to construct. The structure is just about 81 feet tall, and is perhaps most recognizable for its uniquely shaped cutouts. Holl’s design could library’s place among the iconic waterfront structures in Long Island City, seeing as the building is located right between the Pepsi-Cola sign and the Long Island sign, at 47-40 Center Boulevard.

17. Bjarke Ingels Group: 2 World Trade Center

200 Greenwich St
New York, NY 10007

This skyscraper was originally supposed to be designed by Norman Foster, but when News Corp signed on as an anchor tenant, the switch was made to Bjarke Ingels as the lead architect. But times change: In 2016, News Corp and 21st Century Fox pulled out as the anchor tenants. As of right now, the building has been constructed to street level and a completion date has yet to be determined—but it may, at least, have a new anchor tenant soon. The New York Post recently reported that Deutsche Bank may be eyeing a move to the yet-to-be-built tower.

18. Bjarke Ingels Group: The Spiral

10th Ave & W 34th St
New York, NY 10001

Earlier this year, Tishman Speyer announced that it secured financing for Bjarke Ingels’s twisty Midtown skyscraper, dubbed the Spiral, which puts it on track to begin construction in June. The skyscraper will be located just outside the boundaries of Related’s massive Hudson Yards parcel, spanning the entire block bounded by Tenth Avenue, Hudson Boulevard, 34th Street, and 35th Street. The Spiral also has its first big-name tenant: Pharmaceutical conglomerate Pfizer will vacate its Midtown East HQ, built in the 1960s, and take 800,000 square feet in the new tower.

19. Bjarke Ingels Group: The XI

11th Ave
New York, NY

HFZ Capital and Bjarke Ingels Group are set to transform the area around the southern end of the High Line with the duo’s collaboration at 76 Eleventh Avenue, now known as The XI. The project will have three distinct structures: a 36-story building with 149 condos; a 26-story building with the Six Senses hotel running up to floor 10, and 87 condos above that; and a shorter structure on the southwest corner of the overall property that will have a Six Senses spa and club, along with an art space. (There’s also a skybridge!) Apartments will start at $2.8 million, and sales are due to launch soon.

20. Bjarke Ingels Group: 40th Police Precinct

257 Alexander Ave
Bronx, NY 10454
(718) 402-2270

Visit Website

BIG was also chosen to help develop a new police precinct in Melrose, in the Bronx, to the tune of $68 million. The new building’s first floor will hold a lobby, processing areas, and—in a first for a NYPD precinct—a community meeting room, which BIG says is intended to “encourage[] civic engagement with the precinct.” (As the New York Times notes in its extensive reporting on the precinct, “trust between the community and the police has declined,” so—in theory, anyway—a designated meeting space could help ameliorate that.) The second and third floors, meanwhile, will have offices, conference rooms, storage areas, and a staff lounge, among other spaces. Construction began in July 2018.

21. Jean Nouvel: 53W53

53 W 53rd St
New York, NY 10019

One of the most distinctive features of Jean Nouvel’s MoMA-adjacent skyscraper on 53rd Street is its exterior: The architect employed a diagrid, which functions as both structural support and its own sculptural element. (For example, the grid will create different patterns in each of the building’s apartments.) Sales launched back in 2015 and there are currently 11 active listings that range from a one-bedroom asking $3.65 million to a four-bedroom for a whopping $42.5 million. The development also includes a MoMA expansion that will open in 2019 and a new restaurant. The building recently topped out, and residents are expected to move in by next year.

22. Renzo Piano: 565 Broome Soho

565 Broome St
New York, NY 10013

Renzo Piano Building Workshop’s first foray into the residential market in New York City is this Hudson Square condo, which launched sales in 2016. The firm, also behind notable projects like the new Whitney Museum and Midtown’s New York Times building, has designed a dual-tower glass structure for the site with 115 apartments. Apartments at 565 Broome SoHo range from studios to full-floor, four-bedroom apartments with prices starting at just under $1 million and ranging to over $20 million for the yet-to-be-released penthouses and duplexes.

23. Renzo Piano: University Forum and Academic Conference Center

3205 Broadway
New York, NY 10027

Renzo Piano is behind the design of three buildings on Columbia University’s Manhattanville campus. The first two, the Jerome L. Greene Science Center and the Lenfest Center for the Arts, have already finished; this one is inching closer to completion. Renzo Piano Building Workshop is working on the structure in collaboration with SLCE Architects and Caples Jefferson Architects.

24. Roman & Williams: The Fitzroy

514 W 24th St
New York, NY 10011

Though they’re not technically architects, the duo behind Roman & Williams is buzzy enough to merit inclusion on this list—they’ve designed for stars like Gwyneth Paltrow and Ben Stiller, after all. The design firm’s first building in NYC is the Fitzroy, rising on West 24th Street and imbued with a bit of Old Hollywood glamor. The exterior is a unique terra cotta and copper facade; the apartments within are, unsurprisingly, both beautiful and pricey.

25. Annabelle Selldorf: 21E12

21 E 12th St
New York, NY 10003

Now that the demolition of the Greenwich Village building that once held Bowlmor Lanes (RIP) is complete, it paves the way for the 23-story tower that’s due to rise on the site. The building, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, will be called 21E12,and will stand 300 feet tall—a tower, by Greenwich Village standards. The building will be clad in a sand-colored stone, and have casement windows measuring 8 feet by 5.6 feet. Two of its pricey, exclusive units sold within months of apartments hitting the market earlier this spring.

26. Annabelle Selldorf: The Frick Collection

New York, NY 10021

With Landmarks Preservation Commission approval, Annabelle Selldorf Architects will lead the revamp of the Upper East Side’s Frick Collection. Some of the highlights of this expansion include a 220-seat auditorium located below the garden, a renovated lobby, a new level above the reception area, a larger museum shop, and a new education center that will be able to accommodate the 100 school groups that visit the museum every year. A previous iteration of the expansion plan designed by Davis Brody Bond met with an intense pushback from preservationists because it eliminated the beloved garden designed by Russell Page.

27. SHoP: 247 Cherry Street

247 Cherry St
New York, NY 10002

One of SHoP’s many collaborations with JDS Development Group, this 1,008-foot skyscraper—a genuine Lower East Side supertall—is due to rise along the East River waterfront. The tower is one of four (including Extell’s One Manhattan Square, and two more by L&M Development/CIM Group and Starrett) rising in the Two Bridges enclave, and it’s garnered a fair bit of pushback from local residents and elected officials. A public meeting on a draft environmental impact statement for those projects will happen in the fall.

SHoP Architects

28. SHoP: 111 W 57th Street

111 W 57th St
New York, NY 10019

SHoP’s 57th Street tower may not be New York City’s tallest, but it will be the skinniest, which is its own sort of engineering marvel. The residential structure will reach a height of 1,428 feet once it’s completed. Construction on the building, which cantilevers over the old Steinway Hall, is well underway, and though its condos have yet to hit the open market, they’re already finding buyers.

SHoP Architects

29. SHoP: Domino megaproject

325 Kent Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11249

The Domino Sugar Refinery was once lauded as the face of megaprojects in New York City—and when it comes to Brooklyn, it sort of still is. SHoP replaced Rafael Viñoly as project architect in March 2013. Their plan for the site will bring five towers with 2,800 apartments——700 of which will be priced below market rate——and 631,000 square feet of office space to the South Williamsburg waterfront. The firm’s first rental building, 325 Kent Avenue, welcomed residents in 2017.

30. SHoP: 9 Dekalb Avenue

9 Dekalb Ave
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Brooklyn’s first supertall tower, another collaboration between SHoP Architects and JDS Development, will rise adjacent to the Dime Savings Bank building. The 1,066-foot skyscraper, which will have 500 apartments, is somewhat reminiscent of the design for the duo’s other gigantic building, 111 West 57th Street. Construction got underway in 2017, after the Landmarks Preservation Commission gave it the seal of approval in 2016.

SHoP Architects

31. SHoP: Empire Outlets

New York Wheel
Staten Island, NY 10301

Though the New York Wheel is on hold, its North Shore neighbor, Empire Outlets, is due to open in the fall. The city’s first outlet mall—no more bus trips to Woodbury Commons!—will have more than 100 stores, plenty of restaurants (including the borough’s first high-end food hall and Shake Shack), and a hotel. SHoP Architects continues its streak of megaproject work with the design for this shopping center.

SHoP Architects

32. Alvaro Siza: 611 West 56th Street

611 W 56th St
New York, NY 10019

Development firm Sumaida + Khurana and LENY commissioned Pritzker Prize-winning Portuguese architect Alvaro Siza for his first American project, —a 34-story condo building in Midtown. Located at the intersection of West 56th Street and Eleventh Avenue, this residential building will bring 80 new apartments to the neighborhood. Condos here will range in size from one-bedrooms to four-bedrooms, and many of them will feature private outdoor space. Amenities announced so far include a landscaped roof garden, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and an entertainment space to host private events.

33. Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill: Central Park Tower

217 W 57th St
New York, NY 10019

Extell brought on Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture to design this supertall, which will be the tallest residential tower in New York City when completed. (The firm is behind the world’s current tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa, and the world’s forthcoming tallest tower, Jeddah Tower.) The skyscraper will have a Nordstrom flagship at its base, and will eventually rise 1,550 feet over Midtown when completed (which is due to happen in 2019, in theory). Though few details about its residences have been released, sales have quietly been underway for some time now.

34. Robert A.M. Stern: 220 Central Park South

220 Central Park S
New York, NY 10019

Robert A.M. Stern’s ultra-luxury tower at 220 Central Park South—soon to be home to a $250 million apartment, maybe—continues its rise above the park. Updates from the Stern team have been few and far between, but here’s what we do know: The building will eventually rise 70 stories, with more than 100 condos (including that rumored $250 million mega-apartment), some of which will be ultra-expensive “Villas” that will face Central Park.

35. Robert A.M. Stern: 70 Vestry

70 Vestry St
New York, NY 10013

The latest limestone-covered condo by Robert A.M. Stern is located at 70 Vestry Street in Tribeca, and the building is typical RAMS: apartments have generous layouts, and all of the building’s interiors are designed by Daniel Romualdez. And there are impressive—and incredibly schmoozy—amenities, including a lounge room where residents can store their prized booze, and a full-sized squash court. The building also already has a big-name resident in Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, who recently snapped up a pricey pad there.

36. Robert A.M. Stern: 250 W 81st Street

250 W 81st St
New York, NY 10024

There are a few things you can count on with a Robert A.M. Stern condo building: It’ll have a tasteful, neo-traditional design with a muted (probably limestone) facade; apartments will be luxurious, with a bevy of upscale amenities; and the units will be pricey. Stern’s condo at 250 West 81st Street, which launched sales in 2017, ticks all those boxes, with custom kitchens by Smallbone of Devizes and marble-drenched bathrooms.

37. Robert A.M. Stern: 520 Park Avenue

520 Park Ave
New York, NY 10065

The Zeckendorf’s 520 Park Avenue will be one of the city’s most lavish condos when it’s complete in 2017, and it’s another limestone-sheathed tower from RAMS. Once complete, the building will have 33 condos that will take up at least an entire floor each and average about 5,394 square feet a piece. The building will have a triplex penthousethat is rumored to debut with an asking price of $130 million, while several other apartments within the building have already made their way to our list of the city’s most expensive homes for sale at one point or another.

38. Studio Gang: AMNH Expansion

200 Central Park W
New York, NY 10024
(212) 769-5100

Visit Website

Studio Gang’s design for the American Museum of Natural History’s expansion was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission in 2016. The 245,000-square-foot new wing, known as the Richard Gilder Center for Science, Education, and Innovation, will take place on the western side of the existing museum, and stand five stories tall when complete. Some of the standout elements in this new building will be the Butterfly Vivarium, the Invisible Worlds Theater (an immersive way to experience things that aren’t visible to the naked eye), the Interpretive Wall (for exhibits and data visualization), a new insectarium, and several new classrooms.

39. Studio Gang: 11 Hoyt

11 Hoyt St
Brooklyn, NY 11201

Developer Tishman Speyer has assembled a star-studded design team for what will be the development firm’s first ground-up condo building in the city. Studio Gang will design the Downtown Brooklyn tower, known as 11 Hoyt, which will feature interiors by Michaelis Boyd Associates and landscape design by Hollander Design. The project will also be Studio Gang’s first residential building in NYC. There will be 480 apartments and 55,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenities. The 51-story condowill have a mix of studio through four-bedroom apartments with prices expected to range from $600,000 to over $4 million.

40. Studio Gang: 40 Tenth Avenue

40 10th Ave
New York, NY 10014

Also known as the Solar Carve, this office building is one of Studio Gang’s myriad NYC projects under construction. Its features include a 10,000-square-foot shared roof deck, an 8,000-square-foot second floor terrace that’s right next to the High Line, and private outdoor space on eight floors. The 139,000-square-foot building will also have 40,000 square feet of retail with some of the retail spaces having ceilings as high as 17 feet. It topped out earlier this year.

41. Studio Gang: Brooklyn Rescue Company 2

1815 Sterling Pl
Brooklyn, NY 11233

The Chicago-based firm is working on a 20,000-square-foot FDNY facilityin Brownsville, Brooklyn, which will function as a training center for “an elite force of firefighters and specialized rescue workers.” The building certainly looks like a firehouse—it has red accents and the typical sign above the entrance—but has a far more open feel than you’d expect from a traditional hook-and-ladder. It topped out last year, and is expected to be complete by fall.

42. Rafael Viñoly: 125 Greenwich Street

125 Greenwich St
New York, NY 10013

It was a long time coming, but Rafael Viñoly’s Financial District skyscraper at 125 Greenwich Street finally hit the market last fall. Developers Bizzi & Partners were rather secretive about the project for some time, but now, all has been revealed. The 912-foot tower has more than 250 apartments, along with three floors of amenities at its pinnacle. Those building-topping amenities will include a 50-foot infinity pool, a gym and yoga studio, and a private dining and entertaining room.

43. Rafael Viñoly: 277 Fifth Avenue

281 5th Ave
New York, NY 10016

Rafael Viñoly’s Nomad condo, located at 277 Fifth Avenue, is steadily progressing: The building topped out in March, and sales launched on its 130 apartments last September. The skyscraper also have two floors of amenities, including a Technogym-equipped fitness center, an entertainment lounge, a private dining area, spas with steam and sauna features, a children’s playroom, and a game room with a custom-made ping-pong table.

Waterline Square picks up where Riverside Center left off, and Viñoly’s 3 Waterline Square will stand near the intersection of West 59th Street and Freedom Place South, the small pedestrian throughway that snakes through Christian Portzamparc’s master plan, at Riverside Center site 4. Each of Waterline Square’s buildings (the other two are designed by KPF and Richard Meier) will host condominiums up top with rentals in their bases, with one- through five-bedrooms sprinkled throughout.
