What’s the latest at 44-35 and 44-51 Purves Street?

Hammers and drills. Bulldozers and trucks. That is what has been rolling in and out of 44-35 and 44-51 Purves Street in the last month, adding to one of the most heavily constructed blocks in all of New York City. The Criterion Group had originally planned to use the two lots here for a pair of large rental buildings. Purves I was slated to be a 22-story, 121-unit residential tower while Purves II was supposed to be 28-story, 158-unit tower.1 The lots were flipped this summer for $32,000,000, but according to Department of Building permits, the new owner plans on doing… the exact same thing!2

Construction crews have been working non-stop since November on structural, foundation, excavation and shoring work. Here is the latest on their progress:
