YIMBY first revealed the rising office conversion at 107 North 1st Street in March 2018. Today, Melamed Architects have announced a full redesign of the building’s façade, and we have exclusive new renderings of the development.
There is now a green light for the $76.8 million mixed-use residential project to be built next to the Metro-North train station on Halstead Avenue in downtown Harrison, in Westchester County, and adjacent financial incentives. The Westchester County Industrial Development Agency unanimously approved $1,352,966 in sales tax exemptions for the transit-oriented development in late November. Avalon Bay Communities is bringing 143 rental units, seven affordable units, 27,000 square feet of commercial space, and 758 on-site parking spaces to the new three-building complex. That includes two landscaped plazas bridging the train station platform with Halstead Avenue, and a design that ties the new construction to the existing streetscape.
Already several floors above street level in the heart of Long Island City, Court Square City View Tower, aka 23-15 44th Drive, is rising steadily towards its 778-foot tall pinnacle above Queens. The building will have 67 floors of residential living, and rise higher than the stepped crown of the Citibank building, aka One Court Square, which will make it the tallest building in all of Queens. CSCVT is currently the 22nd-tallest tower rising in the Five Boroughs overall, and is set to contain nearly one million square feet of space, with 802 units. The project is being designed by Hill West Architects while the developer is United Construction & Development Group.
YIMBY recently toured COOKFOX’s 25 Park Row, and snapped the sunset and skyline views from the 41st floor of the 49-story, 665-foot tall residential skyscraper. Standing on what would be a full-floor unit, the space will soon be home to some of the best views of both Lower Manhattan, and Midtown to the north. The tower is developed by L&M Development Partners and the J&R Music Store founders, while sales of the 110 units are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
Situated along the intersection of Fulton Street and Dutch Street in Lower Manhattan, 19 Dutch ranks 24th on New York City’s list of the thirty tallest skyscrapers currently under construction. Standing 770 feet tall, the 63-story tower will have 483 rental units. The building was designed by New York’s GKV Architects, while SLCE served as the architect of record. Carmel Partners is the developer of the project. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is handling the leasing and marketing while interiors are being designed by Colum McCartan.
