The Naftali Group is developing two luxury condo buildings on West 77th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue on the Upper West Side. The one on the north side of the block, at 221 West 77th Street, has just reached its full height of 185 feet.
Midwood, in central Brooklyn, is quietly becoming a hub for new residential development. Last week, we spotted plans to build an eight-story, mixed-use apartment building at 1608 East 19th Street, near the border between Midwood and Sheepshead Bay.
Possibly the most prominent new development in New York City is beginning to come to life today. 10 Hudson Yards, the first building completed at Related and Oxford’s Hudson Yards mixed-use project, is opening its doors, and we have a new look at the skyscraper, which will be home to Coach’s corporate headquarters.
Fourth Avenue’s development boom is moving south from Park Slope into Greenwood Heights. Developer Steve Cheung filed plans on Friday to erect a 12-story, mixed-use building at 685 Fourth Avenue, on the corner of 22nd Street. The 120-foot-tall project will bring 81 apartments and 6,400 square feet of retail space to a parking lot a couple blocks south of the Prospect Expressway.
The six-story, 69-foot-high walk-up at 211 West 28th Street has been reduced to two floors, as part of a vertical enlargement that would extend the building to 14 stories. Given the proposed 150-foot height, individual floors will average a generous 10’-9” from slab to slab. The new building would nearly double the 13,332 square feet of the original, bringing the figure up to 24,563 square feet. The former office floors would be replaced with 37 residential units. The project is being developed by Arker Companies, with Aufgang Architects as designer.
