Four-Story, Four-Unit Mixed-Use Building Planned At 2359 Stillwell Avenue, Gravesend

Brooklyn-based Basic Group Consulting has been filing applications since April of 2015 for a four-story, four-unit mixed-use building at 2359 Stillwell Avenue, in southern Gravesend, located directly beneath the Bay 50th Street stop on the D train. The new building will encompass 7,010 square feet and will feature a 917-square-foot ground-floor unit. There will be one residential unit per floor (or three full-floor units), and the family-sized apartments should average a spacious 1,017 square feet apiece. Sugnam Chang’s Brooklyn-based Basic Groups Corp. is the applicant of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story residential building. Demolition permits were filed to remove it back in November.

Two-Building, 392-Unit Residential Development Rises At 526 West 53rd Street, Hell’s Kitchen

Back in May of 2014, YIMBY reported on plans for a multi-building residential development on the block bound by West 52nd and 53rd streets and Tenth and Eleventh avenues, in Hell’s Kitchen. At the time, the 12-story, 96-unit affordable residential building at 535 West 52nd Street, dubbed The Park Clinton, was the only one completed. Then in May of 2015, the developers secured $200 million in construction financing for another phase of the project, which consists of a 24-story building at 526 West 53rd Street connected to a 16-story building at 525 West 52nd Street. That block-thru portion will encompass 392 additional residential units and is currently 15- and 14-stories above street level, respectively.

Construction is finally wrapping up on a long-stalled four-story, mixed-use building at 19-80 Steinway Street (a.k.a. 19-73 38th Street), in the Ditmars-Steinway section of northern Astoria. DNAinfo reports all of the project’s 83 residential units will rent at below-market rates. The building is dubbed Steinway Estates and its apartments will come in studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. The ground-floor will contain 17,785 square feet of retail space, 2,400 square feet of medical office space, and a 219-car parking garage. Amenities include 12,000 square feet of storage space, a fitness center, and a laundry in the cellar, in addition to a rooftop terrace. Queens-based Gerald J. Caliendo Architect is the architect of record. Bronx-based Steve Zervoudis is listed as the property owner, and occupancy can probably be expected later this year.

Excavation Imminent For Nine-Story, Five-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 8 West 70th Street, Upper West Side

Back in April of 2014, YIMBY reported on plans for a nine-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 8 West 70th Street, on the Upper West Side. In December of that same year, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved the demolition of the site’s former four-story structure, as the site is located within the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Congregation Shearith Israel is now set to begin excavation imminently on the 55,027-square-foot project, the Wall Street Journal reports. The below-grade levels through the fourth floor will contain 20,013 square feet space for the religious institution, featuring classrooms, offices, a banquet hall, a library, and connections to the existing synagogue. The remainder of the building will contain full-floor condominium units. PBDW Architects is behind the design. The Board of Standards and Appeals granted a height variance for the project in 2008.
