Over the summer, Extell Development struck a deal to lease City Point’s phase three development site, located on the northern end of the block at 138 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. Yesterday, SLCE Architects pre-filed for Extell’s planned tower, which will rise 57 stories above street level. The documents are not complete, but the initial filing reveals that the project will include both residential and commercial space, as expected. The deal requires the developer to build a four-story, 65,000 square-foot retail base. The tower will rise 692 feet in height, although it’s not clear if that figure includes any structural rooftop elements. The planned residential units should number in the hundreds, and that will be among the details clarified when SLCE completes the new building applications.
A seven-story, 11-unit supportive housing project is currently rising at 166 East 100th Street, on the southern side of East Harlem, DNAinfo reports. The building will measure 10,060 square feet and should boast relatively large units, which will eventually house the formerly homeless. Urban Pathways is expected to run and own the the facility upon completion. Extell Development is building the housing in an effort to obtain a zoning bonus for an undisclosed project within Community Board 11’s district. Extell acquired the Pathmark store at 160 East 125th Street for $39 million last year; it closed in November.
Extell Development and The Carlyle Group have sold two development sites within the Riverside Center mega-development, in Lincoln Square, to GID Development for $264.865 million. The properties include 10 Riverside Boulevard and 639 West 59th Street, and the previous developers have already filed applications for residential buildings. Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on plans for a 36-story, 288-unit building at 10 Riverside. And over the summer, we brought you news of plans for a 34-story, 244-unit residential building at 639 West 59th Street. Both buildings will have small retail components, and Goldstein Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Commercial Observer was the first to report on the sale.
Just as the City Council considers creating a task force to study the impact of supertall towers near Central Park, Extell has filed plans for a comparatively modest 18-story building at 134 West 58th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
Extell Development has purchased the East Bronx property at 2505 Bruckner Boulevard, in Schuylerville, from Lightstone Group for $41 million.

The one-million square-foot property boasts roughly 829,000 square feet of commercial development rights, according to The Real Deal.
