Glacier Global Partners’ renovation and refurbishment of the 230,000 square-foot warehouse at 10 Jay Street is making major progress, per the latest photos from Tectonic. The 10-story building is receiving a glassy new facade designed by ODA New York, which was first revealed in a video posted by Curbed back in February of 2015. The crystalline exterior is up to the eighth floor of the structure, and completion is likely within the next year or so.
A two-story house at 103-43 120th Street, in South Ozone Park, Queens, is about to bite the dust. Building applications have been filed for its imminent replacement, which will rise five floors, and span 8,580 square feet. Mang Wong of Pondosa, Inc. is designing the structure, which will have ten units in total, averaging 858 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Gorden Tan of 4918 Property LLC is listed as the developer, and demolition permits for the extant house have not yet been pulled.
The Naftali Group has been working on several substantial new developments over the past few years, and two of the more prominent buildings are almost across the street from each other, at 210 West 77th Street, and at 221 West 77th Street, in the heart of the Upper West Side. YIMBY caught up with Miki Naftali at 210 West 77th Street to discuss how the firm’s other projects are coming along, how they managed to acquire two development sites that avoid the red tape that chokes so much of the Upper West Side, and the state of the market in general.
YIMBY has reported extensively on Lightstone’s impending condominium tower coming to 130 William Street, in the heart of the Financial District. Plans have evolved substantially since initial building applications were filed back in March of 2015, and initial plans for a mixed-use building with a substantial hotel component were dropped for the all-condominium version as of early 2017. Demolition of the site’s extant structures has since been completed, and now excavation is making quick headway, as per the latest photos from rbrome.
The Rheingold Brewery redevelopment has made headlines over the past few years, but now applications have been filed for another site immediately across the road, at 11-23 Monteith Street, for a structure that will house affordable senior residences. Permits filed with the DOB show the eight-story building will have a ground floor with 3,949 square feet of community facility space, to be topped by 50,923 square feet of residential, which will be divided between 86 units. Peter Bafitis of RKT&B Architects applied for the permits, and Southside United HFDC is the developer.
