A plan to remake the south side of Gansevoort Street between Greenwich and Washington Streets got a big thumbs down from the public at a Landmarks Preservation Commission hearing on Tuesday. The plan from William Gottlieb Real Estate and Aurora Capital would bring more commercial and retail space to the block and would do so by demolishing two buildings and replacing them with new ones and modifying several others.
Nearly a year ago, YIMBY provided a construction update on Related Companies’ 10-story, 107-unit residential building planned at 460 Washington Street, in Tribeca, and now crews are adding the finishing touches to the building, per DNAinfo. Late last year, the building topped-out, and façade installation and interior work have been ongoing since. Units will average roughly 1,300 square feet apiece, and Related will rent 22 apartments (20 percent) at below market rates; the application process has just launched. BKSK Architects is designing, and completion is expected in early 2016.
The Landmarks-approved condo project rising at 130 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village has a teaser site, a new address, and a new rendering. Now, the seven-story development between West 9th and 10th Streets will be known as 175 West 10th Street.
Towards the end of last summer, the office-to-residential conversion of a 10-story building at 11 Beach Street, in Tribeca, was well underway. Now, YIMBY can share some additional renderings of the project, which has hit the 50% sold mark. The building’s 27 condominiums range from three to five bedrooms, and Thomas Juul-Hansen is designing the interiors. Amenities include a fitness center, children’s playroom, and a rooftop garden. HFZ Capital Group is developing, BKSK Architects is the design architect, and completion is expected in 2016.
Back in June, YIMBY reported on filings to convert the eight-story Polhemus Building at 350 Henry Street, in Cobble Hill, into 17 residential units. Since the building is landmarked, approval from the LPC is required, and according to Brooklyn Daily Eagle, plans have received the green light. The units will likely be condos, averaging a spacious 2,520 square feet apiece in the 43,187 square-foot structure. Fortis Property Group is developing, and BKSK Architects is designing.
