The Marin Residences are rising at 515 Marin Blvd. Located directly across from Newport Mall, the project will bring 397 residences and an entire block-long stretch of much-needed retail to Marin Blvd. Construction is up to the third floor.

After spending significant time preparing the site, Lefrak’s Ellipse tower in Newport is beginning to take shape. The 43-story tower sits on a peninsula jutting into the Hudson River. The ground level needed to be raised 13 feet in order to protect it against another Sandy-like superstorm. To do so, 50,000 tons of dirt was trucked onto the site.

Just a few blocks west of Ellipse is the site of the recently approved 75 Park Lane South. Also in Newport, this tower will rise 37 stories. Not much work has been done on the site since its approval in April but a pile driver was spotted indicating they’re likely driving in test piles. There’s no official word on its timeline, but it would appear the project is moving forward.
