Brookfield Properties has officially announced its Bankside mixed-use project in Mott Haven, near the southern tip of The Bronx. The development includes seven residential buildings, 34,000 square feet of public waterfront space along the Harlem River, 15,000 square feet of retail, and a mix of community facilities.
Work is continuing on the demolition of 10-20 West 57th Street to make way for a 52-story mixed-use skyscraper designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. So far one four-story building has been fully razed, and 20 West 57th Street is currently in the midst of coming down. Scaffolding and black netting shroud the northern elevation with the top floors already torn apart and dismantled. Two other structures in the parcel remain and have been vacated. James Patterson of Ancora Engineering is the applicant of record and Solow Realty & Development Group is the developer of the 672-foot-tall, 383,000-square-foot skyscraper, which will contain 80 residential units spread across 202,738 square feet of space.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story mixed-use building at 1009 2nd Avenue in Midtown East, Manhattan. Located between East 53rd Street and East 54th Street, the lot is near the Lexington Avenue-53 Street subway station, serviced by the E and M trains. Abraham Lokshin under the LFL Partners LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Full demolition permits have been filed for 43 West 39th Street in Midtown, Manhattan. According to the filing, the site is owned by Allied Partners. It currently houses a five-story mixed-use building with four residential units and two commercial units. The 55-foot-tall structure was built in 1910.
The glass curtain wall on 7 West 57th Street’s main southern elevation is finished. Work is nearing completion on the 19-story mixed-use residential building, designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Solow Realty & Development Group, which purchased the property 14 years ago for $25,550,000. Vidaris is the envelope consultant for the 237-foot-tall project.
