In the heart of Tribeca’s West Historic District, along the cobblestone roads, 15 Jay Street is undergoing an interior renovation of five lofts, set to be redesigned by the Meshberg Group. The developer is Jay Hudson LLC, while marketing is being led by Michael Brooks of MNS.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for the updated design of 848 Lorimer Street, a six-story residential building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We last reported on the site in September, when the exterior featured arched masonry, and a modernist black metal façade with large windows. The new design raises the masonry up to the fourth floor, above which are two stories of curtain-wall glass windows.
The Brooklyn-based Meshberg Group has filed applications for an eight-story, 14-unit residential building at 310 West 113th Street, on the southern end of Harlem. The project will measure 26,701 square feet and its residential units should average 1,435 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Some of the apartments will be duplexes. Amenities will include private residential storage space, laundry facilities, and a rooftop terrace. Issac & Stern Architects is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,046-square-foot assemblage consists of three 16- to-17-foot-wide three-story townhouses. The structures are expected to be demolished, although permits haven’t been filed yet.
An anonymous LLC, based in Valley Stream, N.Y., has acquired the 6,800-square-foot development site at 21 Powers Street, located in the heart of Williamsburg, from Slate Property Group for $5.75 million, the sale’s broker announced Monday. Planned is a four-story, 10-unit residential project, of which YIMBY revealed a rendering roughly a year ago. The latest building applications indicate it will encompass 19,041 square feet. The residential units, which will be condominiums, should average 1,344 square feet apiece. Amenities include a four-car parking garage, laundry facilities, private residential storage space, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace. Meshberg Group is the design architect, while Grasso Menziuso Architects is serving as the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017, although a single-story warehouse must first be demolished. The Lorimer Street/Metrpolitan Avenue stop on the G and L trains is located three blocks north.
Meshberg Group has designed several factory-style apartment buildings in Williamsburg, but the firm does plenty of historic townhouse renovation and restoration projects. Today we have renderings for a brownstone at 203 Bergen Street in Boerum Hill, which will be completely gut renovated.
