Last Fall, YIMBY revealed renderings of the ODA-designed 32-story, 682-unit mixed-use building planned at 1800 Park Avenue, in East Harlem. Excavation is currently underway, but now its developer, Continuum Company, is planning to sell the development site, according to the New York Post. The property, located at the Harlem-125th Street stop on Metro North and the 4, 5 and 6 subways, is expected to go for $150 million. Current plans also include 80,000 square feet of retail space.
Foundation work has started for yet another new high-rise on the site of the formerly-proposed “Star Tower,” in Long Island City, as reported by The Court Square Blog. YIMBY followed up on the initial report to find that the new building’s filing address has been changed to 27-17 42nd Road.
At 455 West 19th Street, in Chelsea, a single-story warehouse is expected to be redeveloped into an 11-story, nine-unit mixed-use building, according to Curbed. The building will measure 27,480 square feet in total, which will include 1,145 square feet of old warehouse space retained on the ground floor. Units will average a condo-sized 2,925 square feet. NYC Prince LLC is the developer, and Paik Architecture is the architect of record.
Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Simon Baron Development’s planned 44-story, 467-unit mixed-use tower at 29-26 Northern Boulevard, in Long Island City, and now excavation has begun, per The Court Square Blog. The building, dubbed QE7, will measure 382,120 square feet, which includes 13,580 square feet of retail space on the first and second floors. SBJ Group is designing, and completion is expected by the summer of 2018.
The planned 28-story, 370-key hotel & 11-unit condo tower at 215 Chrystie Street has risen quickly this summer, and now stands five stories tall, per the latest photo from Tectonic. Located on the Lower East Side, Herzog & de Meuron designed the building, which is being developed by Ian Schrager and Witkoff. Curbed also reported on the project’s progress yesterday, and completion is currently expected in 2016.
