Things are now moving along quickly at 44-26 Purves Street. Earlier this month, we spotted a rendering at the site (a/k/a 44-30 Purves).1 And, as expected, construction started last week, as vehicles started the process of excavating the lot. Delivery is expected in October, 2017.

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.
