The curved dome atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is structurally completed and the geometric glass panels that enclose the lattice frame are beginning to be installed. The renovation is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Edifice Real Estate Partners. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic, 90-year-old landmarked structure, which is being expanded to 70,348 square feet. Two new floors will be housed beneath the dome and receive abundant natural daylight. Reading International (RDI), who purchased the building eighteen years ago, helped to advance the project thanks a $57.5 million construction loan they secured from Bank of Ozarks and Fisher Brothers.
Excavation and foundation work is nearing completion at 75 West Broadway, aka 61 Warren Street in Tribeca, the site of a forthcoming ten-story, 120-foot-tall residential complex. Located on the western edge of the parcel between Warren Street and Murray Street, the 55,000-square-foot project is being designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Cape Advisors and Forum Absolute Capital Partners.
New proposals from BKSK Architects include a batch of revised renderings and residential floor plans for 53 Pearl Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. The Italianate-style structure, originally completed in 1880 as a factory for the Masury Paint Company, was recently converted into a rental apartment building.
Work on 25 Great Jones Street, aka 22 Bond Street, is another step closer to completion. This will be a new 11-story condominium project in the NoHo neighborhood. It is located on a thin rectangular parcel of land that spans between Great Jones Street and Bond Street. BKSK Architects is the designer while Second Development Services and Richport Group are the two developers. The exterior glass on the northern elevation is finished while the first segments of the dark-colored steel fins on the upper floors of the building have begun installation. A total of six units will begin at $9.8 million with the penthouse reportedly set to span about 4,000 square feet.
Designed with a symmetrically curvilinear space frame with triangular-shaped glass panels, construction progresses on the new addition at 44 Union Square. When completed, this contemporary addition will create two new floors that overlook Union Square. The total square footage of the 90-year-old landmarked mixed-use building will increase to 70,348 square feet. BKSK Architects is the designer, while Edifice Real Estate Partners is developing the property. CNY Group is in charge of the construction and renovations.
