Opening Imminent for 23-Story, 183-Key William Vale Hotel at 55 Wythe Avenue, Williamsburg

Things are moving along swiftly at a new hotel in Brooklyn. Construction is complete on the 23-story, 250-foot-tall mixed-use building — which YIMBY has been chronicling the construction of since its superstructure began to rise in early 2015 — at 55 Wythe Avenue, located between North 12th and 13th streets in northern Williamsburg. The 183-key boutique hotel, dubbed The William Vale, is expected to open later this month, Curbed NY reported. The hotel rooms will be located on the 11th through 21st floors. The 248,000-square-foot structure boasts 19,257 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurant space, followed by 35,678 square feet of medical office space on the fifth through ninth floors. The complex will be accommodated by a 210-car parking garage, a pedestrian plaza, a slew of amenities on the second through fourth floors, a restaurant on the 22nd and 23rd floors, and a 15,000-square-foot roof terrace. Zelig Weiss and Riverside Developers co-developed the project, and Aldo Liberis served as the design architect. The Nassau Avenue stop on the G train is seven blocks away.

The retail and office space will add up to 42,986 square feet. A 72-car parking garage will be located underground. Midtown East-based JCJ Architecture is the architect of record.

Happy Living Development has filed applications for a 12-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 441 West 37th Street, in Midtown West. The project will measure 19,441 square feet in its entirety. Part of the ground floor will contain a 357-square-foot doctor’s office. The rest of the ground floor and the second floor will host a single duplex unit, followed by full-floor apartments on the third through eighth floors. Two duplex apartments will be located across the ninth through 12th floors. The units should average 1,647 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities will include private residential storage space, bike storage, “recreation space” on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. De-Jan Lu’s Greenwich Village-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,468-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The nearest subway station is the 34 St – Hudson Yards terminus of the 7 train.

39-Story, 640-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Rises to 16th Floor at 10 Huron Street, Greenpoint

Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.


626 Sheepshead Bay Road

Seven-Story, 161,000-Square-Foot Commercial Building Now Planned at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, Coney Island

A new design has been revealed of the mixed-use commercial building planned at 2837 West 8th Street (a.k.a. 626 Sheepshead Bay Road), on Coney Island. A seven-story, 161,000-square-foot building, dubbed Neptune/Sixth is now planned, Real Estate Weekly reports. It will feature retail space on the ground floor and a mix of office and community facility space on the upper floors. An 800-car parking garage will also be built, in addition to other public amenities. A slightly smaller four-story building was previously planned, revealed by YIMBY in October. The initial filings, which YIMBY reported on when they were submitted, have since been amended to reflect the new design. The former two-story commercial building was demolished in November and construction is reportedly now underway, with completion anticipated for late 2017. Cammeby’s International Group is the developer and S9 Architecture is behind the design.
