With so much focus on the rising developments along Central Park South, there hasn’t been much discussion of new penthouses rising on the other end of the greenery, mostly because they are very few and far between. One of those rarities is 145 Central Park North, a 14-story residential building near the center of Central Park North in Harlem, between 7th Avenue and Malcolm X Boulevard. Today, YIMBY has the first rendering of the project, which is being developed by Einhorn Development Group.
Construction of the two-structure TWA Hotel, flanking the historic TWA terminal, has made significant progress since our last update in December. Photos from the site reveal that one of the hotel towers is nearly fully covered with its façade, and that the second tower has topped-out.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 1728 Townsend Avenue, in the Mount Hope neighborhood of The Bronx. The project is ideally located between two subway stations. Two blocks east is the 174-175th Street station, serviced by the B and D trains, with the 176th street station two blocks north, serviced by the 4 train. Luce Popaj will be responsible for the development.
With so many new residential buildings on the rise in Williamsburg, it’s easy to forget about office development in the neighborhood. But that’s exactly what’s in store for 107 North 1st Street. The project will create 18,000 square feet of office space by integrating modern amenities into a historic brick building. The Melamed Architects-designed revamp will also bring a retail tenant into the first two floors.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story mixed-use building at 161-11 132nd Avenue, in Rochdale, Queens. The site is about a mile away from the Locus Manor train station, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. Fifth Avenue Community will be responsible for the development. The organization is dedicated to creating affordable housing, educating, advocacy, and workforce development.
