Foundation work begins at 44-26 Purves Street

The last time we stopped by at 44-26 Purves Street in late March, construction crews had just started on the project and were in the excavation stage.1 Now that we’re at the end of May, work has shifted toward the foundation, as seen in photos below. 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.
