"The Remy", 28th +Sixth- Inactive
835 Sixth Ave, 53 story condo/hotel on the way
Sixth bet 29th and 30th, 30 story tower if all goes well
The Future Tower 111
The current lot for Tower 111 (32nd and Sixth)
There is an impressive stretch from 28th Street to 32nd Street on Sixth Avenue where plans are filed and huge empty lots await a skyscraping bunch of condos with plenty of retail at the bases. One, between 29th and 30th is well underway, but you have to wonder about the others. Interestingly, Costas Kondylis, has an opportunity to dominate the area, but will it all go according to plan?
NW Corner of 28th and Sixth- This was billed as The Remy, and has been for a couple of years. It was designed by Costas Kondylis and would be a 31 story condo. The site now sits inactive.
Entire West Side of Sixth Ave from 29th to 30th- 835 Sixth is well underway. The 625,000 sf building by JD Carlisle Group is expected to rise 53 stories and combine lower floor retail with a 302 unit condo-hotel. Perkins/Eastman, architect- huh- no Kondylis?
Entire West Side of Sixth Avenue from 30th to 31st- From secretive developer Joseph Cherit, a 30 story condo tower with ample retail at the base. Designed by Costas Kondylis.
SW Corner of 32nd and Sixth. Tower 111, it's working name, is expected to rise 48 stories and house 337 units and more retail at the base. This is also by architect, Costats Kondylis.
It will be a banner couple of years for Costas if this all goes off, however the only one above ground at this point isn't his.
