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.
Waterline Square’s trio of towers are finally looking like their renderings. Aside from the construction hoist and a few odd windows, each building has its façade fully installed from the ground up. Once complete, the nearly 1,200-unit project will span five acres, and is being marketed as an effective mini-neighborhood enclave within the Upper West Side, with its own open park and retail market. GID Development Group is responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 214 West 15th Street in Chelsea, Manhattan.

Permits have been filed for a single-story commercial structure at 110 East 125th Street in Harlem, Manhattan. The site is located on the same block as the 125th Street Metro-North train station, and the 125th Street subway station serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. The Durst Organization is listed as responsible for development.
As the buildings in the Upper West Side continue to age, Brack Capital is filing plans to bring 720 West End Avenue into the 21st century. The proposal for the Landmark Preservation Commission would reconstruct interiors, enlarge the original structure upward by one story, which would be invisible to pedestrians, and fill in the lot beside it with an eight-story addition. The plan would bring over 120 new residences to the area, with design by Morris Adjmi Architects.
