Permits have been filed for a new four-story mixed-use residential building at 549 61st Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. City Building NY Architect P.C. is listed as the applicant of record and the filing representative. The new structure will be made with a steel frame and yield just over 5,400 square feet of newly built space. The property is located between Fourth Avenue and Fifth Avenue and is less than five minutes away from the N and R train at 59 Street Station. Leif Ericson Park is about a five-minute walk to the south beyond the elevated I-278 Belt Parkway.
Permits have been recently filed for a new nine-story mixed-use residential and commercial building at 4720 Third Avenue in Belmont, The Bronx. Ismael Leyva Architects is the designer of the nearly 190,500-square-foot project. Canas Solutions, Inc. is the filing representative while Cactus Holdings, Inc. is the owner of the 35,606-square-foot site. The project sits on a corner lot and is located south of Fordham University. It also sits very close to the Fordham Metro-North train station. The B and D train can be accessed at the Fordham Road subway station, which is only five minutes to the west.
On the heels of the topping-out of The XI’s second tower, YIMBY attended the official ceremony for the milestone hosted by the project’s architect Bjarke Ingels, offering a first look at the sweeping views from the top of the complex. The 908,250-square-foot development stands next to the High Line in Chelsea and is now the tallest set of buildings in the neighborhood. The first 30-story skyscraper sitting closer to the Hudson River reached the 402-foot-tall roof parapet last year. The shorter 20-story, 300-foot-tall sibling climbed to its pinnacle just a couple weeks ago. HFZ Capital Group is the developer of the project. Omnibuild is in charge of constructing this new icon for New York City.
The existing four-story building at 200 Montague Street, aka 192 Montague Street, will make way for a new 20-story Beyer Blinder Belle-designed structure. The 10,000-square foot site sits directly adjacent to 75 Livingston Street, aka 16 Court Street. Because the project is among the Borough Hall Skyscraper Historic District in Brooklyn Heights, plans for the new development will have to be approved by the Landmark Preservation Commission. The scheduled review date is set for March 5, 2019. James M. Patterson of Ancora Engineering is listed as the applicant of record.
In the SoHo neighborhood, 300 Lafayette Street sits along West Houston Street. The seven-story building has topped out as 145 feet and is close to completion. It is designed by COOKFOX and developed by Related and LargaVista Companies.
