Last week, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly designed the building, we learned that Handel Architects was in fact behind the renderings; we have also obtained a new set of images which include that version of the project’s interiors and views, which will be very impressive.
YIMBY has new renderings for two very different buildings rising on one oddly shaped lot in Prospect Heights, a big 75-unit rental project at 313 St Marks Avenue and a four-story brick townhouse at 730 Bergen Street.
Last December, YIMBY posted the first preliminary renderings for 281 Fifth Avenue, a 52-story condominium tower that will soon begin construction on the southeast corner of 30th Street and Fifth Avenue. Permits for the project were filed early last month, and now YIMBY has obtained the first actual rendering of the glassy building, which is being designed by Rafael Viñoly.
As the Asian population grows in Elmhurst, developers in nearby Flushing have begun to cater to the neighborhood’s burgeoning Chinatown along Broadway. Right next to Queens Place Mall at 88-08 Justice Avenue, one builder has filed plans for a 20-story apartment building with community space on the lower floors.
UPDATE: Reps have gotten in touch with YIMBY, noting that these renderings are now outdated, and that Morris Adjmi is now designing the building instead of AA Studio.
A residential conversion is in the works for a three-story loft building at 89 Grand Street in Williamsburg, and YIMBY has the first look at the planned three-story expansion and new two-story building next door.
