We were just by 44-26 Purves Street (a/k/a 44-30 Purves) earlier this month1 to follow-up on construction permits that received approval.2 When we walked by the lot last night, we saw the below rendering for the building posted on the fence, promising a October 31, 2017 completion on the site. As you can see in the rendering, the building will tower over other buildings on Purves Street. Work should begin soon on the project.

FXFowle is attached as the architect of record, and the building will span 207,053 square feet, split between a 517 square foot commercial component, and 270 apartments. At a total height of 374 feet, ceilings will also be surprisingly generous compared to most new construction in the neighborhood.
