The Lower East Side’s ongoing development boom has been substantial, with projects ranging from Essex Crossing to One Manhattan Square now nearing completion. But in between those two sites, on a seemingly forgotten block of East Broadway, plans are in the works for another two high-rises. YIMBY last reported on 226-232 East Broadway back in 2016, when the Ascend Group acquired the buildings and lots for $47.5 million. Today, we have the exclusive first look at what’s expected to rise on the site, with two towers of 20 and 36 stories apiece expected to flank the landmark former nursing home at 228 East Broadway.
It has been less than four years since permits were filed for 1059 Third Avenue, but thanks to Tectonic we can see the tower has now risen 21 floors above the Upper East Side, on the way to its 30-story pinnacle. The project is one of several new high-rises coming to the neighborhood. Real Estate Inverland and Third Palm Capital are responsible for the development. The site was purchased for $40 million in 2012, costing just over $330 per buildable square foot.
New permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 717 Sutter Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Eight blocks away is an identically named station, serviced by 2, 3, and 4 trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as behind the applications.
Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The post-war Japanese Metabolism movement, a style that integrated organic material and architecture, was what inspired the 16-story building’s distinctive look.
Today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for yet another major new development coming to Astoria, in Queens, showcasing design by Aufgang Architects. The depiction shows the building’s façade along 30th Street. Concrete panels will be installed in a rectilinear pattern likened to a minimalist refinement of row houses, which projects the sheer scale of the city block-sized structure. The site is just ten blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.
