The sun is shining brightly on the brand new façade of 111 Leroy Street. Major progress has been made since YIMBY last looked, as the townhouse and condo complex finally have their skin. The project is bringing nine condos and five modern townhouses to the area. This will further expand the West Village’s classic low-rise and high-end housing closer to the water. Workshop/APD Architect is responsible for the design.
A new proposal to the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission has come forward to expand 53 Mercer Street into the new SoHo headquarters and retail center for Dolce Vita. The design would refabricate the historic look of the three-story SoHo row house, while adding two extra flights out of pedestrian view. DXA Studio is responsible for the architecture.
Construction is moving fast for 425 Park Avenue, as is the curtain wall. The new Midtown office tower rising on Manhattan’s most prestigious thoroughfare saw steel begin climbing rapidly as soon as construction breeched the original partially-demolished extant structure. As it now stands, topping out appears imminent. The concrete core has reached the top floor, while the steel has 15 more stories remaining before its final 41st level. L&L Holding Company is responsible for the development.
Marin Architects has revealed potential plans to expand and convert a century-old commercial building located in a buzzing corner of Washington Heights, Manhattan. Formerly known as the Jumel Building, the structure was originally completed in 1911 by famed American entrepreneur Frank W. Woolworth.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 7 Terrace View Avenue in Marble Hill, Manhattan. Marble Hill is the northernmost region of Manhattan, and is the only portion of the borough that isn’t on an island. While it had been connected to the main island of Manhattan before, the US Army cut it off of the city for a canal to expedite shipping in the late 19th Century, and it was later connected to the Bronx in 1914 by filling in the old river. James Kwon will be responsible for developing a structure along the northern edge of the neighborhood, near where the old river used to be.
