Excavation Underway For 68-Story Skyscraper At 100 West 37th Street In Midtown, Manhattan
Excavation is moving along at 100 West 37th Street, the site of a 68-story mixed-use skyscraper in the Garment District of Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by C3D Architecture and developed by Sioni Group under the 989 Sixth Realty LLC, the 743-foot-tall structure will span 384,118 square feet and yield 300 condominium units with an average scope of 991 square feet, as well as 86,817 square feet of commercial space and two cellar levels. Northeast Specialist Group was the demolition contractor for the corner property, which is alternately addressed as 989-993 Sixth Avenue and located at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and West 37th Street.
Demolition had just concluded at the time of our last update at the end of November, when a lone excavator sat amid remnants of rubble from the razing of the 21-story former occupant of the site. Recent photos show portions of this structure’s foundations beginning to be exposed as crews work to unearth the plot below street level. Excavation should continue into the spring, followed by the formation of the new foundations around the middle of the year.
Renderings by Render.bar depict the slender glass skyscraper beginning with a podium composed of conjoined glass-clad cylindrical volumes topped with a wraparound landscaped terrace. Above, the tower rises to a cutout terrace positioned level with the roof parapet of the adjacent building to the west, followed by a uniform volume up to a third setback roughly ten floors below the pinnacle. The uppermost levels feature stacks of curved balconies on the northeast, southeast, and southwest corners, and the building culminates in a mechanical bulkhead adorned with illuminated horizontal grilles.
100 West 37th Street’s anticipated completion date is posted on site for 2026.
