Construction is complete on the expansion and restoration of the former Tammany Hall headquarters at 44 Union Square. The multi-story addition and interior renovations were designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Reading International (RDI) with Edifice Real Estate Partners as the owner’s representative. The project features a prominent geometric space-frame dome atop the 90-year-old structure. CNY Group was in charge of construction for the Union Square site, which sits at the corner of East 17th Street and Park Avenue South. Reading International purchased the historic edifice 18 years ago and received a $57.5 million loan secured by Bank OZK and Fisher Brothers from Lionheart Strategic Management, LLC, an affiliate of Fisher Brothers.
Construction has reached full completion at 90 Morton Street, a 12-story condominium building in the West Village. Designed by Asaf Gottesman of Gottesman-Szmelcman Architecture and developed by Brack Capital Real Estate, the 150-foot-tall project involved a rooftop addition on an eight-story industrial building that once housed a printing warehouse. The structure yields 122,000 square feet with interior design by Marc Turkel of Leroy Street Studio. Reuveni Real Estate is leading sales and marketing of the 35 units, which hit the market in April 2018 with prices starting at $5.3 million.
Exterior work is nearing completion on the six-story addition atop 60 Charlton Street, an office building in Hudson Square. Alternately addressed as 163 Varick Street, the project is designed by HOK and co-developed by APF Properties, Kenneth Aschendorf, and Berndt Perl, with Stuart Milstein of Drake Street Properties, and brings the structure’s total height to 12 stories and 191 feet tall.
Curtain wall installation is progressing quickly on Zero Irving, a 21-story mixed-use building at 124 East 14th Street in Union Square. Designed by Davis Brody Bond and developed by RAL Development, the structure will yield 240,000 square feet of affordable and market-rate office space for technology firms and amenities for occupants. Financial partners Junius Real Estate Partners and Suffolk Construction are also helping to develop the property.
Façade installation is making progress at 799 Broadway, a 12-story office building in Greenwich Village. Designed by Perkins + Will and developed by Columbia Property Trust, the 182-foot-tall project will yield 180,000 square feet of commercial space marketed by JLL. The corner lot is located at the intersection of Broadway and East 11th Street, and was purchased by Normandy Real Estate Partners and Ares Management in 2016 for $101 million. Early work required the demolition of several low-rise structures before excavation and construction of the new edifice could begin.
