159 West 126th Street [Harlem+Bespoke]: Two four-story townhouses are being combined and vertically expanded at 159 West 126th Street, in Harlem, and a similar project is underway just a few doors down.

840 West End Avenue [The Real Deal]: Thor Equities has purchased a six-story and 39-unit mixed-use building of 47,800 square feet at 840 West End Avenue, on the Upper West Side; the building “comes with 13,000 square feet of unused air rights.”

328 Marcus Garvey Boulevard [Commercial Observer]: A four-story tenement — located at 328 Marcus Garvey Boulevard, in Bedford-Stuyvesant — has been purchased for $2.05 million. The new owners plan “to complete unfinished renovations by finishing the top floor and working [on] two other residential units.”

906 Prospect Place [Brownstoner]: The 10,000 square-foot vacant lot at 906 Prospect Place — in Crown Heights — has been purchased by $3.5 million by Jeffrey Gershon; the site “could accommodate a bigger residential building up to sic stories tall” spanning 24,349 square feet.

3401 Princeton Pike [Times of Trenton]: Bristol-Myers Squibb is planning a “650,000 square-foot office building at the vacant plot of land at 3401 Princeton Pike, in Lawrence, N.J.; the project “is expected to open by the end of 2016.”

295 Hicks Street [Brooklyn Daily Eagle]: The Landmarks Preservation Commission has sent the proposed 295-299 Hicks Street, in Brooklyn Heights, back to the drawing board. SDA Development is leading the project, and Nikolai Katz is designing.

154 2nd Avenue [EV Grieve]: The completed six-story mixed-use building is set to debut at 154 2nd Avenue, in East Village; scaffolding has been removed from the building, which is technically a three-story vertical extension of the original structure. Icon Realty developed, and Issac & Stern designed.

142 West 132nd Street [Harlem+Bespoke]: Construction appears to have kicked-off at a planned four-story and two-unit townhouse at 142 West 132nd Street, in Harlem; the site was previously vacant.

90-02 Queens Boulevard [Brownstoner]: The developers behind the St. John’s Hospital residential and commercial conversion — at 90-02 Queens Boulevard, in Elmhurst — have “secured a $32 million construction loan for the final stage of development.” The 266,322 square-foot building is receiving a top-down make-over and will feature 144 residential units and “118,213 square feet of commercial and community space.”
