Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby. The building, located in the heart of the Financial District, has made incredible progress, with the façade now complete save for windows connected to the exterior hoist. Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 258 Saint James Place in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Clinton-Washington Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains. Twelve blocks away is Barclays Center and the expansive Atlantic Terminal Mall. The Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center subway station connects with the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N. Q, R and W trains. Springfield Gardens Homes Inc. is behind the project.
Permits have been filed for a two-story commercial building at 1968 2nd Avenue, in East Harlem, Manhattan. The site is three blocks away from the 103rd Street Subway Station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains. Five blocks to the south is the 96th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for another major parking facility at 1441 South Avenue, in Bloomfield, Staten Island. The development is connected to an office building designed by CetraRuddy. The site is disconnected from the Staten Island Railway. Two bus lines are the only public transport that connect the location with the rest of the borough. This explains the need for a massive parking garage like the one proposed. Nicotra Group will be responsible for the development.
Rafael Viñoly has become one of the more prominent designers of Manhattan’s residential real estate in recent years, and today, YIMBY has the first rendering for the architect’s latest skyscraper, at 249 East 62nd Street on the Upper East Side. While the tower will technically comprise only 32 floors, it will stand 510 feet to its rooftop, taking advantage of a Jetsons-esque podium to boost its upper levels high into the neighborhood skyline.
