A vacant lot in the Flatiron District is on its way to getting a new building. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved an application for a single-family residence at 34 West 21st Street.

Last time YIMBY checked in on Prospect Plaza in March, construction on the big affordable development in Ocean Hill, Brooklyn was chugging right along. Now, another building has been filed for the second phase of the project, at 1760 Prospect Place between Howard and Saratoga avenues.
In June, YIMBY reported that major changes are ahead for the Waldorf Astoria New York hotel. Thanks to a move on Tuesday, there are unlikely to be too many changes that mar its historic design. The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to calendar portions of the Art Deco skyscraper’s interior.
