YIMBY first reported in early 2014 on filings for Urban Muse’s planned 13-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 347 Bowery, on the corner of East 3rd Street in the East Village. When we last checked in in November, the structure was eight stories above street level, and it has since topped out, EV Grieve reports. The building will eventually contain five three-bedroom condo units ranging between 2,100 and 4,000 square feet each. Within the two-story retail podium, there will be two 2,000 square-foot retail units and one 6,800 square-foot retail unit. Annabelle Selldorf is behind the project’s design, and completion can be expected sometime later this year.
In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story residential building at 1766 Second Avenue and a six-story one at 1768 Second Avenue, in the Yorkville section of the Upper East Side, on the corner of East 92nd Street. Now, Curbed NY has on-site renderings of the project, which has received the go-ahead by the Department of Buildings. The latest filings call for 30,127 and 14,104 square-foot buildings, respectively, with a combined total of 25 residential units, all of which would rent at below-market rates. Units will average 1,348 square feet apiece and will come in two- and three-bedroom layouts. There will also be a total of 3,676 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Extell Development is developing and Curtis + Ginsberg Architects is the architect of record. Two five-story tenement buildings were demolished in December and completion is expected in mid 2017.
In Early 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of L+M Development Partners’ planned seven-story, 50-unit mixed-use building at 260 West 153rd Street, in Harlem. Since then the project has wrapped up construction, according to DNAinfo. The 75,484 square-foot structure is completely clad in brick façade and its windows have been installed. There will be 14,331 square feet of community facility space on the ground and second floors, which will be occupied by a day care and offices for a local community organization. The apartments above will all rent at below market-rates. Thirty-four of them – studios, one-, and two-bedrooms – are already listed on the affordable housing lottery. Curtis + Ginsberg Architects is behind the design and occupancy is expected within the coming months.
Iona College is currently building a seven-story, 310-student dormitory at 690 North Avenue, in New Rochelle, located in Westchester County. According to Westfair, construction began early last year and the project was recently awarded a $2.5 million from the state Higher Education Capital Matching Grant Program Board. The building will feature publicly accessible retail and restaurant space on the ground floor. Completion is expected sometime later this year, before the start of the fall semester.
In late 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned seven-story, 164-unit mixed-use building at 149 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Bedford Avenue Station on the L train. The project has now topped out and much of the curtain wall is also installed, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. The building will measure 220,996 square feet in total, 129,522 square feet of which will be residential space. That means rental units will average 790 square feet apiece. The ground floor will contain 14,588 square feet of retail space in total across three separate units. Completion is expected sometime later this year, with 20 percent of the units renting at below market-rates. Global Design Strategies is designing and L+M Development is the developer.
