Permits for construction of 74 Trinity Place were approved approximately one year ago, and already, the building has nearly topped-out, having reached the 20th of 26 eventual floors. The mixed-use tower has replaced a derelict but beautiful structure, and for that reason, the architect placed special attention to the design. Now, pedestrians in the Financial District are finally getting a glimpse of the bronzed skin. Façade installation, as designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli, has finally commenced.
The Art Deco trend sweeping Manhattan is now arriving in Borough Park. Permits have been filed for an 18-story mixed-use building at 4218 Fort Hamilton Parkway in Brooklyn. The site is two blocks away from the Fort Hamilton Parkway station, serviced by the D trains. Snap Developers NY will be responsible for the project, which YIMBY can now exclusively reveal.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 3128 Henry Hudson Parkway in Spuyten Duyvil, The Bronx. The site is eleven blocks away from the 231st Street subway station, serviced by the 1 train. Six blocks away is the neighborhood’s Metro-North train station. TR Construction NY is listed as responsible for the development.
Downtown’s residential boom continues apace with the construction of 125 Greenwich Street, which has reached two-thirds of the way to its 912-foot-tall pinnacle on a corner overlooking the World Trade Center memorial. The tower will rise above most of its neighbors in the Financial District, but since it is right across from 1 World Trade Center, it will not make a sizable impact on the skyline. Architect Rafael Viñoly is also responsible for the Midtown supertall 432 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential complex at 959 Sterling Place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The site includes an existing historic building, occupied by the Hebron Seventh-Day Adventist Bilingual School, originally built as the Methodist Episcopal Home for the Aged in 1889. The Romanesque/Gothic revivalist structure is within the Crown Heights North Historic District landmark and will require approval from the LPC. Matthew Cordivari of the Triton Construction Company is listed as behind the applications.
