Full demolition permits have been filed for the six-story brick building at 1651 1st Avenue in Yorkville, Manhattan. The current 62-foot tall structure has been used as walkup housing since 1920, with 16 residential units and two units uses as commercial space on the ground level. It is unclear what plans are in store for the 2,200 square foot lot as no new building permits have been filed. David Rothstein of Extell is listed as the owner of the site.
Demolition permits have been filed by Nexus Development a two-story building at 171 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Its dismantlement is considered an emergency due to damage inflicted nearly two weeks ago from what’s being described as a concrete blowout. Next door, a ten-story building by the same developer and ODA Architecture is already under construction, at 173 Chrystie Street.
Demolition Permits have been filed for 517, 519, and 523 West 29 Street, in West Chelsea, Manhattan. The site is just blocks away from Hudson Yards. This comes over a year after reports broke that developer Six Sigma paid a pricey $800 per buildable foot for 4,900 square feet of air rights to add to the project. The $3.92 million purchase allows the developer to add another floor to the top of the structure, which can be expected to sell for quite a sum. Six Sigma purchased the actual property for $54.75 million.
Demolition permits have been filed for several three-story structures along Fourth Avenue, a commercial thoroughfare right on the border between Park Slope and Boerum Hill, in Brooklyn. 122 Fourth Avenue and 601 Baltic Street are now destined for demolition.

Demolition permits have been filed for 308, 310, 312, and 314 East 86th Street, by 2nd Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, all by the same developer. The buildings are right next to the new 86th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q train. The sites are owned by Izaki Group Investments, who were reported as purchasing three of the sites in March of 2017 for $42 million, from Extell Development, which purchased the sites in April of 2016.
