Tishman Speyer has filed plans for a two-tower commercial project in Long Island City, next to its 22-story office building known as Two Gotham Center.
Back in April, the first partial renderings were revealed of the six-story, 33-unit mixed-use building planned at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, located within two blocks of stops of on the 2, 3, 4, 5, B, D, N, Q, and R trains and Atlantic Terminal. Now, the first full rendering of the building, dubbed the Hendrik, has been revealed by the New York Times. The latest permits indicate the project will encompass 114,812 square feet. The ground and cellar levels will feature 26,000 square feet of retail, and the residential units above should average 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums ranging from two- to four-bedrooms, with the smallest units measuring 1,200 square feet and the largest clocking in at 2,500 square feet. Nineteen of the condos will have outdoor terraces. Amenities will include a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a library, a lounge, a pet spa, bike and stroller storage, an underground parking garage, a rooftop terrace, and a central courtyard. Hopestreet is the developer, while Beyer Blinder Belle is the architect. Foundation work is reportedly underway, with completion scheduled for late 2017.
Back in October of 2014, YIMBY revealed new renderings of the previously planned 32-story, 682-unit mixed-use project at 1800 Park Avenue, located between East 124th and 125th streets in East Harlem. Then last year, the project’s developer, the Continuum Company, decided to sell the site. Earlier this year, the Continuum defaulted on their loan on the property, and now the creditor, the Durst Organization, is in contract to acquire the site for nearly $100 million, The Real Deal reported. It wasn’t disclosed what Durst plans to do with the property. Continuum technically poured a part of the building’s foundation before the 421-a tax abatement expired, so the project remains eligible. Amended new building permits currently describe a 24-story, 670-unit project encompassing 694,000 square feet. Featured is 73,460 square feet of commercial space and 46,250 square feet of community facility space on the cellar through third floors. ODA New York is behind the project’s design.
Avery Hall Investments may be fighting Park Slopers to redevelop a Key Food on Fifth Avenue, but a dozen blocks north in Boerum Hill, their condo project is rising fast. YIMBY reader Tectonic recently swung by the site and brought us some shots of the progress.
Back in February, we learned that the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) and the School Construction Authority (SCA) are planning a 600-student elementary school on block “F” of the Hunters Point South mixed-use, mixed-income mega-development, located in southwestern Long Island City. Now, the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) is preparing to launch a Request for Proposals (RFP) for two residential portions of the mega-project, one located on block “F” adjacent to the school, and the other on block “G,” Crain’s reported. Together, the two buildings are expected to include at least 750 residential units, of which 450 would rent at below-market rates. There would also be retail space and some form of community facility space. Proposals will be due in September, and a development team will be selected in early 2017.
