New renderings are out for a twelve-story mixed-use building under construction at 411 West 35th Street, in the Hudson Yards District of Manhattan. The Lewis is named after Lewis Katz, who dedicated his life to improving the chances of success for younger people, particularly those disadvantaged by circumstance. This news corresponds with the launch of leasing for the 186 rental units.
Our last reporting on 845 Howard Avenue was after the NYC Department of City Planning gave approval to the Robert A.M. Stern Architects’ design in October. Now, permits have been filed for the site, which also goes by 3 Livonia Avenue, in Brownsville, Brooklyn. The project will be named Edwin’s Place, and will be the fifth project in Brooklyn by the non-profit partnership of Breaking Ground and The African American Planning Commission Inc.
Permits have been filed a seven-story mixed-use community facility at 30-14 Crescent Street, in Astoria, Queens. The site is six blocks away from the 30th Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the N and W trains. The Church of the Redeemer is responsible for the development. The proposal is on the site of their existing facility, built in 1866.
Demolition permits have been filed for the home of the Italian American Museum, who operate out of 185, 187, and 189 Grand Street in Little Italy, Manhattan. However, this is not a disappointment for the institution. They had been trying to sell their current location for years, on the condition that they are provided with rent-free space within the replacement. They were finally successful in February 2017, when their buildings were purchased for $14.8 million by Oved Group and Nexus Building Development Group.
When we last checked in on 587 Main Street in New Rochelle, New York, it was barely noticeable on the skyline, rising just six flights up. Now, thanks to photos by Nick Ramacciato, we can see that the structure has made substantial progress. Work is currently up to the 20th floor, out of a total 28. Façade installation has not yet started, though the angled shape of the building is easily visible. Paulus, Sokolowski, and Sartor (PS&S) are responsible for the architecture, and a fresh rendering also gives a better view of what the top floors will soon look like.
