Full demo permits have been filed for three one-story structures at 2686-2690 Broadway on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Located at the intersection of West 103rd Street and Broadway, the buildings once housed the Marrakech Hotel, which was partially demolished after the previous owner was fined for illegally converting residential units into hotel rooms. Toll Brothers is listed as the owner of the site under the 2686-2690 Broadway LLC, after purchasing the property in 2019 for $44 million.

SMA Equities recently secured a $56 million financing package to complete a new 20-story mixed-use building in Kips Bay, Manhattan. The project is located at 202 East 23rd Street and will eventually yield a mix of income-restricted and market-rate apartments and around 2,400 square feet of lower-level retail.
Exterior work is continuing to shape up on 2401 Third Avenue, a three-tower complex designed by Hill West Architects in Brookfield Properties‘ Bankside master plan in Mott Haven, The Bronx. The 4.3-acre development is a combination of two sites along the northern side of the Harlem River. 2401 Third Avenue is located on the western side of the Third Avenue Bridge, and 101 Lincoln Avenue is the larger counterpart found on the opposite side. Bankside will provide seven residential buildings, 15,000 square feet of retail space, a community facility run by a local nonprofit yet to be named, and 34,000 square feet of public waterfront space. Brookfield purchased the two parcels for $165 million in September 2018 from Somerset Partners and The Chetrit Group. Ground was first broken on 2401 Third Avenue in the fall of 2019, and construction on Bankside is expected to cost $950 million and yield 1,370 units.
New renderings by Pei Partnership Architects show details of a 29-acre mixed-use complex along the Flushing Creek waterfront in Queens.

Hill West Architects is responsible for the master plan design.
Construction has topped out on The Collection, an eight-story residential building at 401 West Street along the Hudson River waterfront in Manhattan’s West Village. Designed by Thomas Juul Hansen and Hill West Architects and developed by Wainbridge Capital, the ten-unit project has taken some time to materialize because of a delay in demolition due to sustained flood damage from Superstorm Sandy. The property is located between West 10th and Charles Streets, directly across from the Christopher Street Pier.
