A topping off ceremony was held in late October for 400 Fifth Avenue, a 57,000-sf high-rise that includes a 214-room luxury hotel and 190 high-end residential condominiums. Developed by Bizzi & Partners Development and designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects, the 60-story tower in midtown Manhattan sits atop a smaller-scale 10-story base, which creates a street façade that better relates to its low-rise neighbors, including the famous Tiffany & Company building. The simple massing of the tower portion rises without setback and is capped by a stainless steel crown. Completion: fall 2010.

At the 202-unit Niche 905 Apartments, Chicago, FitzGerald Associates Architects designed an 18th-floor roof deck featuring a large communal grilling station adjacent to smaller individual grills and private dining areas with family-style tables. A nine-foot glass wall running along the perimeter shields residents and their guests from the wind. The glass enclosure “helps the space feel more like a room and makes it more intimate,” said FitzGerald’s Kristen Larkin. Photo: C360 Images, Jim Tschetter
