Jeffrey Gershon’s 11-story, 182-unit rental building at 22-22 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City, quickly went up over the past year, having reached its half-way point in December, and then topping out in April. Today, the finishing touches are being applied to the structure’s exterior, and glass installation is nearly complete, according to The Court Square Blog. ODA Architecture is designing, and the ground floor will feature 5,585 square feet of retail space. Completion is expected by the end of this year.
Property owner Mendel Gold has filed applications for a five-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 140 Stanhope Street, in central Bushwick, two blocks before the M train’s Knickerbocker Avenue stop. The building will measure a total 10,720 square feet, and will feature nearly 2,100 square feet of retail and 425 square feet of community space on the ground floor. Units will average 850 square feet. Dutchess County-based Aryeh Siegel is the architect of record, and an existing two-story, single-family structure must first be demolished.
Yan Po Zhu, the developer of a planned 12-story, 69-unit mixed-use building at 208 Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, is selling the construction site — currently four stories up in steel framing — for $35.5 million. According to Bowery Boogie, the 67,300 square-foot building is being designed by Michael Kang, and an 8,350 square-foot community facility is expected to occupy the ground floor. Construction stalled out roughly a year ago.
In late June, applications were filed for a six-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 66 North 3rd Street, in northwestern Williamsburg, two blocks in from the East River, and now identical applications have been filed for a building at 64 North 3rd Street. The same anonymous LLC and filing architect, SRA Architecture + Engineering, are developing and designing the project. To recap, each building will measure 12,290 square feet, with ground-floor retail portions spanning 2,860 square feet. At No. 64, an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
At the end of 2014, YIMBY semi-revealed Lalezarian’s planned 35-story, 220-unit mixed-use tower at 323 10th Avenue, in West Chelsea. Now, renderings of the tower have been posted on-site and construction is underway, with rebar poking up above street level, courtesy of photographs by ILNY and Tectonic. The project also includes two other 13-story buildings on the other side of the High Line, at 507 West 28th Street, which will amount to another 155 residential units.
