While the red tape choking most of the West Village has given most blocks over to some form of perceived permanence, small spaces for new developments still exist here and there. One such spot is located on the corner of Hudson and Charles Streets, spanning 540-544 Hudson, where designs for a new building by Morris Adjmi Architects are now awaiting approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on the unveiling of plans for a massive new mixed-use project at 6208 8th Avenue, in Brooklyn. The site lies on the boundary of Sunset Park and Dyker Heights, and in November of 2014, Community Board 10 voted against recommending the project move forward (though that is ultimately only advisory to City Planning). Three years later, work has yet to begin, but the plans have now seen major adjustments and a complete reconfiguration.
Two years ago, YIMBY reported on new job applications for a three-story commercial and medical office building at 251-73 Jericho Turnpike, in Floral Park, Queens. Now, we have the reveal for the site’s attractive design, which is rising at the corner of Little Neck Parkway, right across the street from Nassau County.
Fifth Avenue continues its piecemeal evolution, and with legitimate supertalls now set to sprout as far south as the upper 20s, the blocks to the south are following suit with their own changes. 150 Fifth Avenue has been owned by L&L Holding Co. since 2000, and the firm is now renovating and expanding the building with an attractive two-story rooftop addition, for which YIMBY now has the video reveal.
YIMBY has reported extensively on the residential development coming to 221 West 28th Street, with our initial reveal for the project depicting a design by ME Architect. That was sacrificed for an iteration by Karim Rashid, which was then tossed for a version by DXA Architecture, which subsequently evolved into the building’s latest format.
