In November 2013, YIMBY revealed renderings for the ME Architect-designed 21-story residential building at 215 West 28th Street, in Chelsea. Then in January 2015, we revealed renderings of an alternate design by Karim Rashid. Now, HAP Investments is moving forward with a two-building development designed by DXA Architects, which was first revealed by Curbed NY. The entire complex will measure 290,000 square feet, although filings have only been submitted for the building at 215-219 West 28th Street (and it will also cantilever over the existing tenement buildings at 213 and 221 West 28th Street). Filings detail a 183,293-square-foot building with 112 residential units and 8,202 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The other building, to rise at 223-227 West 28th Street, is not filed yet, but should measure around 100,000 square feet.
One of the most prominent new developments in New York City is currently under construction on Manhattan’s far West Side. Hudson Yards, when complete, will be a massive mixed-use complex, and now, thanks to a recently-launched website, we have some new looks at the project.
Redsky Capital is planning to conduct renovations on the two-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 159 North 3rd Street and 158-170 North 4th Street, in Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Bedford Avenue Station on the L train. The property owner recently secured a $19 million loan to refinance debt and to fund the project, according to Commercial Observer. Ground-floor retail space totals 48,860 square feet, while 27 rental apartments currently spread across 25,510 square feet of residential space on the second floor. Roughly 21,000 square feet of retail is vacant, although the entire block-thru building is expected to receive renovations and upgrades. Current retailers in the building include a Foodtown supermarket, and the restaurants Umani Burger, Sweetgreen, and by CHLOE.
It was over two years ago that we first saw a rendering of the mixed-use building under construction at 55 West 17th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Chelsea. Much has been done since then, and now the bulk of building’s façade is visible. YIMBY got to step inside the project, designed by Morris Adjmi, on Wednesday.
Back in January of 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the eight-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 372 Broadway, in TriBeCa. Construction began on the building’s conversion in early 2015, and now YIMBY has new details and never-before-seen renderings of the condominium project, which goes by Six Cortlandt Alley. Curbed NY was the first to report on the project’s sales launch.
