Construction is now up to street level on the western end of 50 West 30th Street (a.k.a. 846 Sixth Avenue), in NoMad, where a 24-story, 55-unit mixed-use tower is under development. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed the NOMA, will eventually encompass 105,973 square feet and rise 315 feet to its pinnacle. It will include 10,363 square feet of retail space across the cellar through second floors, followed by residential units on the third through 24th floors. The apartments, condominiums, will range from one- to three-bedrooms, averaging 1,320 square feet apiece. Alchemy Properties is the developer and FXFOWLE Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in January of 2018.
A NoMad hotel will be getting a facelift. The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently approved work to be done at the Broadway Plaza Hotel, located at 1155 Broadway, in the Madison Square North Historic District.
It’s been over a year since YIMBY revealed 15 East 30th Street, the 750-foot condo tower under construction between Fifth and Madison avenues in NoMad. Now, we have a fresh rendering of the building, which was posted on the construction fence yesterday.
The vacant, 12-story former manufacturing building at 3 East 28th Street, in NoMad, is now receiving a $20 million gut-renovation. The 61,325-square-foot structure is being upgraded and modernized to accommodate office and retail tenants, Commercial Observer first reported, and YIMBY has renderings of the project.
As May came to an end, the New York City Fire Department was investigating the fire that gutted the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava, an individual landmark at 15 West 25th Street in the Flatiron District. Authorities and engineers were studying the structural integrity of the remains, and have now declared the church “too unstable to be left standing,” the New York Post reported. That means the main house of worship will be demolished. The rectory portion of the cathedral, which was unscathed during the fire, currently also has Landmarks protection, which should mean it won’t be demolished with the main structure. The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has the option to de-designate the property, too, but we think, at the very least, the LPC will want to keep the rectory a landmark. The Executive Board of St. Sava will now decide if they will rebuild on the property or relocate. The site has 244,450 square feet of mixed-use development rights, minus the usable square-footage of the rectory.
