Collegiate Churches of New York has filed applications to transform the 12-story buildings at 370-378 West End Avenue, on the Upper West Side, into a single residential structure with 66 units. The Collegiate School building at 370 West End will be replaced with an 18-story structure, and once connected with 378 West End, will measure 198,095 square feet. Units will average 3,000 square feet apiece, and COOKFOX Architects is designing.
Certes Partners and United Management Corp. have acquired the six-story building at 214-218 West 95th Street, on the Upper West Side, for $26.5 million, according to Commercial Observer. In July, YIMBY reported on filings for a 10-story, 18-unit residential building (by the same developers) to replace the six-story former SRO at 206 West 95th Street. Now, the assemblage boasts 85,000 square feet of development potential, possibly in the form of an 18-story building. RKTB Architects filed for the initial permits, but Cetra Ruddy has been hired to design.
Back in January, it was reported Olmstead Properties placed their vacant development site at 363 Lafayette Street, in NoHo, on the market, and now CBSK Ironstate has leased the site for 49 years, according to the New York Post. The 5,500 square-foot site, which spans 357-371 Lafayette, boasts 32,000 square feet of development potential, and planned is an unspecified commercial development. The project is being financed by Wells Fargo.
In May of 2014, YIMBY brought you renderings of TEN Arquitectos’ conceptual plans for the St. Johns Terminal building at 550 Washington Street, in Hudson Square. At the time, multiple owners complicated the redevelopment of the 1.1-million square-foot structure, which has 280,000 square feet of air rights, but now Westbrook Partners has bought out Fortress Investment Group’s ownership stake for more than $200 million, according to Crain’s. Atlas Capital Group, who tried to acquire additional air rights from Pier 40 last year, will retain their minority stake. Plans include a new residential tower, which may be built ground-up or as a conversion/expansion, but city approval is required before construction can begin.
