Certes Partners and United Management Corp. have acquired the six-story building at 214-218 West 95th Street, on the Upper West Side, for $26.5 million, according to Commercial Observer. In July, YIMBY reported on filings for a 10-story, 18-unit residential building (by the same developers) to replace the six-story former SRO at 206 West 95th Street. Now, the assemblage boasts 85,000 square feet of development potential, possibly in the form of an 18-story building. RKTB Architects filed for the initial permits, but Cetra Ruddy has been hired to design.
Last year, Hudson Companies filed new building applications for their second large development in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a 170-unit building at 310 Clarkson Avenue. Now the developer is planning an even larger 250-unit building on the same block at 350 Clarkson Avenue, between Nostrand and New York Avenues.
The furthest reaches of Midtown West are about to get another mixed-use building designed by Cetra Ruddy. The Soho-based firm filed new building applications this morning for a 13-story residential development with ground floor retail at 572 11th Avenue, on the corner of 43rd Street.
Back in May of 2014, One Wall Street was acquired by Harry Macklowe from BNY Mellon for $585 million, with plans to convert the building from office to residential use. The Ralph Walker-designed tower is one of the most iconic skyscrapers in the Financial District, from its limestone exterior, to the vulcan-inspired Red Room, all the way to the former executive smoking room/observation lounge at the tip-top of the building. And now YIMBY has the first renderings of what the building will eventually look like, courtesy of a tipster, who sent along CetraRuddy-designed plans that transform the building’s base into a major retail destination, and its upper floors into condominiums and a hotel.
Last September, YIMBY posted the first renderings for a new CetraRuddy-designed hotel coming to 414 West 15th Street, in the Meatpacking District. And now, we have a few more updated images of the project, which show some changes to the rooftop, and also reveal the development’s street-level appearance.
