100 University Place

Drawings Posted For 23-Story Mixed-Use Project At 100 University Place, Greenwich Village

Nearly a year ago, YIMBY brought you news of Macklowe’s 23-story, 52-unit mixed-use building planned at 100 University Place, in Greenwich Village, and now schematic diagrams have surfaced of the building’s form, per Curbed. The 107,965 square-foot building will have 13,075 and 1,050 square feet of commercial and community space, respectively, spanning the ground floor. Condos will average 2,076 square feet each. SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record, and the existing four-story building is getting prepped for demolition.

Revealed: 38-04 11th Street, Long Island City Hotel

And YIMBY has the reveal for the project, which will replace an auto shop on the corner of 38th Avenue.

Despite initial difficulties and buckling streets, the latest photos from Tectonic show One Manhattan Square is now making major headway, at 250 South Street.

Permits Filed: 196 Montrose Avenue, East Williamsburg Expansion

As property values skyrocket in the low-slung eastern edges of Williamsburg, small developers are searching for ways to boost a site’s density without spending exorbitant amounts of money on construction. Increasingly, they file their developments as alterations, rather than new buildings, which allows them to avoid building expensive underground parking. And the J-51 abatement gives landlords a break on their property taxes, in exchange for preserving at least 50% of the old building and keeping the new units rent-stabilized for up to 20 years. One of these enterprising developers has filed alteration applications to expand a little three-story brick apartment building at 196 Montrose Avenue, on the corner of Humboldt Street.
