The Namdar Group and Modern Spaces have officially launched leasing at MRK, a new 16-story rental tower in Jersey City. Located at 97 Newkirk Street, the building is the most recent rental property to debut in the city’s Journal Square neighborhood.
Exterior work is underway at 157-161 East 28th Street, aka Hillrose 28, a topped-out 20-story building in the Midtown neighborhood of Kips Bay. Located at the northern corner of East 28th Street and Third Avenue, the residential project stands 191 feet tall and contains 66,125 square feet of space spread across 43 units. C3D Architecture is the project designer, Lemay + Escobar is the interior designer, and Forkosh Development is the developer of the property. Corcoran Sunshine is in charge of marketing and selling the residences.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 66 Clinton Street on the Lower East Side, Manhattan. Located between Stanton Street and Rivington Street, the lot is three blocks from the Delancey Street-Essex Street subway station, serviced by the F, M, J, and Z trains. Michael Bauer of Borough Equities is listed as the owner behind the applications. According to the Bowery Boogie, the nonprofit New Life of New York City sold the property and the vacant lot next door for $8.7 million to Vault Development and TLM Equities in May.
Construction on a 19-story residential building at 157-161 East 28th Street in the Manhattan neighborhood of Kips Bay is about to surpass several adjacent low-rise structures. Now clearing the sixth floor, the reinforced concrete structure will eventually be 191 feet tall. C3D Architecture is the project architect while Alex Forkosh of Forkosh Development is the developer of the 43-unit, 66,125-square-foot project. The company purchased the lot back in January 2018 for $43 million, and three low-rise apartment buildings were demolished to clear the way for the new structure.
76 Bowery Street recently topped out over Chinatown. The eight-story reinforced concrete structure sits in front of the entrance to the Manhattan Bridge between Canal Street and Hester Street. The new 85-foot-tall building is located within the “Dimond Center” of Chinatown, where a number of small jewelry shops line the busy streets. It is being designed by C3D Architecture and will include 14,488 square feet of office space. Titan Realty & Construction is the general contractor and is overseeing the build.
