Sales have launched for the 30-story tower rising at 110 Charlton Street off the corner of its intersection with Greenwich, which has been officially dubbed Greenwich West. It will stand fairly prominently amongst its neighborhood surrounds, reaching a final height of 290 feet when complete. Strategic Capital, Cape Advisors, and Forum Absolute Capital Partners are the developers for the nearly 226,000 square foot project, which will yield 170 loft-style apartments designed by Paris-based architecture firm Loci Anima, with Adamson Associates serving as architect of record. Interiors are being designed by Sebastien Segers. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group is handling sales of the units, starting at $965,000, with the first closings expected in early 2020.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 30-48 Crescent Street in Astoria, Queens. The site is four blocks away from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. D. Casamento & Sons Inc. is listed as behind the applications.
At the beginning of 2018, One Vanderbilt Avenue was only just rising above its retail podium. While it was as wide as it would ever be, it was hard to imagine the inevitable future height that the Midtown has already reached. When complete, the supertall will be the fourth tallest skyscraper in New York City, competing with the Billionaires Row and FiDi Supertalls, and now it’s finally piercing the Midtown plateau. Work is about three or four floors below the 808-foot-tall Metlife building, meaning One Vanderbilt is well past half its full height of 1,401 feet. Hines and SL Green are responsible for the development.
Permits for 335 West 35th Street were filed as far back as 2013, and just now we’re finally getting a first look at what’s to come from the conversion. The Chen family, most prominent for the T.F. Chen Cultural Center, is planning to develop a twelve-story mixed-use project by refurbishing an existing Midtown office building. The site is just a few blocks away from Madison Square Garden and its myriad of transit and dining options. This will be developed under the company name New Tent LLC.
Located in the West Village, and bound by West 10th Street, Washington Street, and Greenwich Street, a new proposed expansion for the Village Community School is currently being reviewed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Approval would potentially bring a four-story addition, designed by Marvel Architects, to the eastern side of the property, at the corner of West 10th Street and Greenwich Street. The corner is currently the site of the school playground, originally built in 1945. The school and project site are located among two historic districts in Greenwich Village, sitting on the southwest corner of the established areas.
