At the end of 2014, YIMBY posted the first renderings for the Collegiate Campus’ expansion at 301 Freedom Place South, between West 61st and 62nd Streets in the new Riverside Center development, which was initially set to be designed by Gluck+. Since then, Kohn Pedersen Fox has replaced Gluck+ as the design architect, and we now have the first rendering of what the building will actually look like.
The wrecking ball came last year for an aging factory at 10 Lexington Avenue, on the corner of Grand Avenue in Clinton Hill. Now, a five-story apartment building is rising in its place, and YIMBY has the first renderings of the project.
A forlorn industrial area next to the Cross Bronx Expressway in West Farms may finally see new life, now that plans have been filed for a large affordable housing development there.

One of the last big development sites in central Crown Heights is a Rite Aid at 1040 St Johns Place, between Brooklyn and Kingston Avenues. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a seven-story building on the big property, which is currently a Rite Aid.
Back in 2013, a group of Chinese investors closed on two big development sites just north of Columbia University in West Harlem for $6,600,000. Now they’ve filed plans to develop the property on West 126th Street between Amsterdam and Morningside Avenues. New building applications call for a 16-story residential building at 418 West 126th and a nine-story hotel at 412 West 126th. The two structures may not be physically connected, but they have been filed as one project.
