WB Development NB LLC has proposed to redevelop the 16-acre former Academy of Our Lady of Good Counsel High School campus located at 52 North Broadway, just north of downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The proposals calls for two 10-story residential buildings with 400 rental apartments between them, a 125-bed assisted living facility, and a four-story, 66-unit dormitory geared toward graduate students at the neighboring Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University, Westfair reported. Ten percent of the rentals would be designated as affordable. Roughly 2.7 acres would be preserved as green space and two existing buildings would be preserved. The anonymous LLC is comprised of multiple developers and investors, including Midtown South-based George Comfort & Sons Inc. Perkins Eastman is behind the architecture. The site needs to be rezoned in order for the project to be built. Applications were filed with the city’s Common Council in July.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s (MSKCC) 22-story, 779,832-square-foot portion of the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care, under construction at 530 East 74th Street on the Upper East Side, is now four stories above street level. Work was solely underway on the foundation when YIMBY reported on the project in January. The latest construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Work appears to still be below grade on City University of New York’s (CUNY)/Hunter College School of Nursing’s 16-story, 750,000-square-foot portion at 524 East 74th Street. MSKCC’s portion will focus on the treatment of various forms of cancer, while CUNY’s portion will focus on research and physical therapy. Perkins Eastman and Ennead Architects are designing the project, and a recent rendering is below. Completion is expected by 2018, with opening scheduled for 2019.
Back in January, YIMBY reported on the groundbreaking ceremony held for the planned 79-story, 781-unit mixed-use tower under development at 99 Hudson Street, in Jersey City. That’s located between Grand and York streets in Exchange Place section of the city. Pile driving and foundation work are now underway, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 1.5-million-square-foot skyscraper, to stand 900 feet in height, will include 15,000 square feet of retail space and 14,000 square feet of public space, some of that in the form of a plaza. The plaza will be located on the corner of Grand and Greene streets. China Overseas America Inc. is the developer and Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018, followed by occupancy the next year.
Construction has topped out on the 35-story, 421-unit mixed-use building at 430 Marin Boulevard, in downtown Jersey City. The construction update is possible thanks to a photo posted to the Forums. The new building will contain 10,126 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 20 percent of the apartments (85 units) will be designated as affordable. The tower is being built as part of the 11-building Hudson Exchange West mega-development. The developer, Forest City Ratner, is facing a lawsuit over the legality of developing the property, due to a former railway that was removed in the 1990s, Jersey Digs reported. It appears construction on the first building has continued despite the legal challenge. Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion of the first building is expected in 2017.
Since foundation work was underway in April, construction on the 28-story, 236-unit residential tower under development at 1501 Voorhies Avenue, in southern Sheepshead Bay, has now reached 10 stories in height.

The residential units will be a mix of condominiums and rental apartments, and should average 1,112 square feet apiece. Amenities include a 168-car parking garage, storage for 118 bikes, a fitness center, a pool & spa, a terrace on the second floor, and a sky lounge on the 17th floor. Muss Development and AvalonBay are the developers, while Perkins Eastman is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2018. The project is located directly east of the Sheepshead Bay stop on the B and Q trains.
