It was nearly two years ago that YIMBY showed you renderings of the 15-story building being developed by John Catsimatidis’ Red Apple Group at 180 Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn, dubbed the Margo. Since then the unit count has changed and the building is now nearly complete, with the façade in place, save for some work on the terraces. The realization of that latter fact comes courtesy of photos taken by our friend Tectonic.
Anbau Enterprises has spent the last two years securing Landmarks approval and a rezoning for a planned cantilevering condo building at 39 West 23rd Street. Now the developer has finally filed plans for the 25-story, mixed-use project between 5th and 6th avenues in the Flatiron District.
The city is moving to redevelop the Flatbush Caton Market into a mixed-use, affordable apartment building, and now a private developer has filed plans for a vacant lot on the next block, at 2155 Caton Avenue.
Until now, the residential supertall boom has been focused on the core of Midtown, with One57, 432 Park, 217 West 57th Street, and 111 West 57th Street all rising in the blocks between Eighth and Park avenue. Now, we have fresh renderings for Kohn Pedersen Fox’s entry into a design contest for 151 East 60th Street, which would rise on the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 60th Street, stretching Midtown’s new skyscraper crown a few blocks northeast of its current local maxima.
Most developers building market-rate apartments in the South Bronx have set their sights on Port Morris, a relatively narrow industrial strip that wraps around the southern tip of the borough. But Treetop Development just paid $6 million for a site several blocks north, at 121-129 East 144th Street in Mott Haven.
