The evolution of Broadway in the blocks comprising NoMad over the past few years has been nothing short of dramatic. Now, the southwest corner of 30th Street is about to become the most prominent example of the neighborhood’s shifting character as the 476-foot-tall Virgin Hotel begins to rise, at 1225 Broadway.

Back in August of 2016, YIMBY posted the permits and then the initial reveal for an affordable senior housing building coming to 1017 Home Street, in the South Bronx. Now, we have a substantially revised version of the project to share, thanks to its architect, Body Lawson Associates.
YIMBY previously reported on 46-20 11th Street in Long Island City back in January, when new building applications were filed for the site with the DOB. Now, the reveal is out, thanks to The Court Square Blog, which spotted the on-site renderings yesterday. The project will rise seven floors and total 40,035 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 42 units, with a design by Raymond Chan Architects. 11th Street Condominiums LLC is developing, and the site’s former two-story warehouse has now been demolished, with completion is anticipated by the spring of 2019.
New building applications have been filed for a five-story and ten-unit project on an irregularly-shaped lot at 1330 East 17th Street, in Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood. The site is only one block east of the Q train’s Avenue M stop, and will comprise 7,276 square feet of residential space, likely translating into rental apartments with an average size of 727 square feet. Grigori Zinkevitch is the architect, and Joseph Horowitz of Lush Developers is listed as the developer. An existing two-story home must be demolished before work can begin.
YIMBY reported on the demolition of the temporary WTC PATH station last August, and we revealed renderings for the Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center last September. The complexity of the site within the new World Trade Center means that several additional steps must be completed before work can begin on the actual PAC, but now, construction has begun on the Vehicle Security Center, which will sit directly underneath the PAC.
