A one-story building in Greenwich Village will see a new life as a Mexican restaurant. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal to transform 255 Bleecker Street, most recently a sushi restaurant, into Tacombi – La Cornelia.
Last month, YIMBY posted the first renderings for the tower coming to 36 Central Park South, on the site of the old Helmsley Hotel. The first version was created by Handel Architects, and the second — which we only had a glimpse of — was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and we now have additional images of that version.
On a dead-end block of Debevoise Street near Bushwick Houses in Williamsburg, a developer wants to erect a five-story, mixed-use apartment building. New building applications were filed last week for a 22-unit project at 40 Debevoise Street, between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street, just north of the Bed-Stuy border.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the first permits for La Central, a sprawling affordable housing complex set to rise on a vacant lot in the Melrose section of the South Bronx. Now the city has filed more plans for the development’s two biggest residential towers at 556 and 600 Bergen Avenue, about two blocks from the 3rd Avenue-East 149th Street stop on the 2/5 trains. We’ve also got a few new renderings, including interiors for a planned YMCA.
Two months ago, YIMBY brought you the first look at WeWork’s big mixed-use development on the waterfront in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Now we have an official rendering and more details on the 16-story office building, dubbed Dock 72 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
