A new neighbor is on the way, the 21-story structure pictured above, about to rise on the southeast corner of 41st and Second. It's being built by the Turken Foundation, a nonprofit formed in 2014 to assist Turkish students in New York with housing and scholarships. We understand that the building will serve primarily as a student dormitory, with retail space on the ground floor.
The building will adjoin Hatfield House, and if the jack-hammering the other day is any indication, it's going to be a bumpy year on 41st Street. Anticipated completion: Fall, 2020.
