In December 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for mid-rise residential towers at 420 Kent Avenue, in western Williamsburg on the East River, and now The New York Times has renderings of Spitzer Enterprises’ development. The ODA-designed project will include three 24-story towers totaling 856 rental units and a public park. Filings show the buildings will also have retail space, and low-rise warehouse buildings must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the first phase of Essex Crossing, a multi-site mixed-use project on the Lower East Side being developed by L+M Development, Taconic Investment and BFC Partners. Bowery Boogie now reports excavation has begun on the first building, located at 242 Broome Street, where a SHoP-designed 14-story, 55-unit mixed-use building is planned. Splitsville Lanes will occupy the basement, and other retail space is also expected on the ground floor.
Applications have recently been approved by the DOB for a seven-story, 39-unit mixed-use building at 840 Fulton Street, in southern Clinton Hill, and now Brownstoner has the reveal for the Kutnicki Bernstein-designed project. The Daten Group is developing, and the 20,755 square-foot building will include 1,400 square feet of retail on the ground floor. The existing gas station was approved for demolition in May.
In February, YIMBY brought you news of Greystone & Co.’s planned 12-story, 75-unit mixed-use building at 69 East 125th Street, in northern East Harlem. Now Harlem+Bespoke has an on-site rendering of the project, which will feature 5,640 square feet of retail space, per applications approved in May. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is designing, and completion is expected in June 2017, per signage. Existing four- and single-story structures, which were filed for demolition in February, must first be removed.
In May, YIMBY reported on filings for a 21-story, 48-unit condominium building at 302 East 96th Street, on the northern edge of the Upper East Side. Now Curbed has a rendering of the mixed-use project, which is being developed by Wonder Works Construction, Fimida Enterprises and Mink Development. Amended in June, filings now show the building measuring 75,395 square feet, and a 2,185 square-foot retail portion is planned. Units will average 1,525 square feet, and Karl Fischer is designing. Demolition filings for the existing three-story parking structure were filed in April.
