Plans for the replacement at 119-121 2nd Avenue have been submitted to the Landmark Preservation Commission, allowing the public a first look at what may be coming to an East Village corner. The three lots previously on the site were cleared from the devastating 2015 East Village gas explosion, which injured 19 and caused two deaths. The two lots were purchased for $9.15 million in 2017, and permits were filed in late February 2018 for the replacement. Nexus Development will be responsible for the rebuild, first revealed by EV Grieve.
Permits have been filed for a four-story building at 173 Lefferts Place in Bedford-Stuyvesant, bordering Crown Height, in Brooklyn. The development will pair with 171 Lefferts Place, for which permits were filed last month. Yosef Elishaiev of the Infinity Properties will be developing both buildings. The lot is just a block way from the Franklin Avenue subway station, end of the line for the S trains. Six blocks away is the Nostrand Avenue subway station, serviced by the A trains.
The prominence of the Hudson Yards district continues to grow, and today, Tishman Speyer has announced the official start of construction for The Spiral. The 1,031-foot tall building will be the fifth supertall added to the area. An event to mark the occasion will be held this afternoon, and will conclude with the planting of a 20-foot Alaskan Cedar tree to serve as Hudson Boulevard & Park’s annual Christmas tree.
The redevelopment of the southwest corner of the West Village by the Hudson River is often overlooked, but that part of the neighborhood is about to get a healthy dose of modernization. One project now under construction is 111 Leroy Street, which will create nine apartments and five townhouses. Work has progressed significantly since our last look, and façade installation appears imminent. Property Markets Group is responsible for the development.
Nicknamed the “Pearl On The Park,” and located next to the Beekman Hotel at 5 Beekman Street and directly adjacent to COOKFOX’s 59-story residential tower rising at 25 Park Row, 1 Beekman Street has officially topped-out at 25 stories in height. Construction has progressed quickly over the past year, and demolition and excavation of the site only began two years ago.
