A combination of landmarking and unusual manufacturing zoning have frozen Soho in the early 20th century, but every once in a while, a developer scoops up a non-contextual and underutilized property hidden among the cast iron 19th century facades. One of those builders, KUB Capital, has filed plans to erect an eight-story, six-unit building at 146 Wooster Street, between West Houston and Prince Street.
Permits were filed and YIMBY revealed renderings last summer of G&M Realty’s planned 48- and 41-story, 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, at the former site of 5 Pointz in Long Island City. Now, excavation is finally in full swing, The Court Square Blog reports. Thomas O’Hara’s HTO Architect is designing the 1,116-unit project, which also includes 39,765 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Completion is currently expected in the winter of 2017.
UPDATE: while permits would seem to indicate condominium’s given the developer’s LLC, a rep for HTO has corrected YIMBY, and 411 Ninth Avenue will actually have rentals.
A sliver lot on the northwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 33rd Street has remained vacant for quite some time, but YIMBY now has the reveal for the building that will soon rise at 411 Ninth Avenue. HTO Architect is designing the project, which has been dubbed Skylight House.
YIMBY has the first look at an eight-story residential building designed by HTO Architect rising at 555 Waverly Avenue, at the corner of Atlantic Avenue on the southern edge of Clinton Hill.
