Construction Wraps on 29-Story, 113-Unit Mixed-Use Tower at 959 First Avenue, Midtown East

Construction has wrapped up on 959 First Avenue, a 29-story, 113-unit mixed-use tower under development between East 52nd and East 53rd Street, in Midtown East. When YIMBY last checked in on the project in early 2015, façade installation was still underway. The latest photos were posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Dubbed the Sutton, it measures 194,201 square feet and rises 353 feet above street level. There will be 2,714 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units above, averaging 1,440 square feet apiece. Ninety of the apartments will be condominiums ranging from studios to four-bedrooms, plus a few penthouses, the largest of which has seven bedrooms. The other 23 apartments (20 percent of the total) will be designated as affordable. Toll Brothers City Living is the developer. Incorporated Architecture & Design is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the executive architect. Occupancy can probably be expected soon.

The Houston Street corner opposite an iconic deli is also getting a new neighbor, and now there’s a new look at that project.

Steel Rises for 11-Story, 94-Unit Mixed-Use Condo Building at 196 Orchard Street, Lower East Side

Back in December of 2015, updated renderings were revealed of the 11-story, 94-unit mixed-use building planned at 196 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side. Steel beams are now being rising from the ground at the site, Bowery Boogie reported. The structure will encompass 178,376 square feet. There will be 38,452 square feet of commercial space across the cellar through third floors. Most of that space will be utilized by a three-story Equinox fitness center, which required a special permit from the Board of Standards and Appeals, and Community Board 3 will see the plans this month. Parts of the ground and cellar levels will also contain retail space. The apartments, which will be condominiums, begin on the fourth floor. Units will average 978 square feet apiece and will come in studios and one-bedrooms. The structure will be topped by a roof deck. Magnum Real Estate Group and Real Estate Equities Corporation are the developers, while Ismael Leyva Architects is designing. Incorporated Architecture & Design is responsible for the interiors. Completion is expected in late 2017.
