1162 Broadway

14-Story, 52-Key Hotel Planned At 1162 Broadway Moves Forward, NoMad

In December of 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the planned 14-story, 52-key hotel at 1162 Broadway, between West 27th and 28th streets in NoMad, located within the Madison Square North Historic District. Applications for the project were submitted in May of 2014, but filings were incomplete until yesterday, when Aini Assests filed drawings with the Department of Buildings. The building will have 24,325 square feet of commercial space and there will be a café or restaurant on the ground floor. Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design. The site is currently occupied by a 26-foot-wide, two-story commercial structure, and demolition permits were filed this past December. The LPC also recently approved plans for a hotel next door at 1164 Broadway.


25 Mercer Street

Five-Story, Five-Unit Residential Conversion Planned At 25 Mercer Street, SoHo

The five-story mixed-use building at 25 Mercer Street and the three-story property at 27 Mercer Street, located in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, are expected to be converted into a single five-unit condominium building, according to Curbed NY. There will be four full-floor units and a duplex penthouse, and the residences are expected to hit the market this spring. GDS Development is developing and Fogarty Finger is designing the project, dubbed 25 Mercer. Alterations that would go into the conversion would have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission since the property is located within a historic district.

Landmarks Not Ready To Approve New Three-Family House At 348 Clermont Avenue, Fort Greene

A new residential building is probably coming to a vacant lot on Clermont Avenue, between Lafayette and Green avenues, in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Historic District. It just won’t be quite what was proposed to the Landmarks Preservation Commission on last Tuesday. The commission did not approve the plan for a three-family, four-story structure at its public hearing.

City Council Approves Sale For 344-Unit Redevelopment Of New York City Farm Colony, Staten Island

In late 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the 45-acre residential redevelopment of the dilapidated 96-acre New York City Farm Colony campus, located centrally on Staten Island. Last week, the City Council approved plans to sell 45 acres of the property to NFC Associates, the New York Times reports. The Staten Island-based developer will rehabilitate five existing buildings, demolish five others, build 14 multi-unit townhouses, and also build three six-story residential buildings. Dubbed Landmark Colony, there will be a total of 344 condominiums, 34 of which will be sold at below-market rates, but all of which will be home to people 55 and older. Of the 45 redeveloped acres, 17 acres will be landscaped public space, and 17,000 square feet of commercial space is planned. Vengoechea & Boyland Architecture is designing, and units will begin to come online next year.
