A rendering has been spotted at 118 East 1st Street, a nine-story new development in the East Village directly overlooking the Lower East Side. The site is three blocks away from the Essex Street subway station, serviced by the F, J, M, and Z trains. Six blocks away is the Tompkins Square Park. Cynthia Wu and Robert Marty are listed as the developers.
Development around Union Square has always been tightly monitored, which makes any newsfor the neighborhood all the more exciting. Today, YIMBY has an exclusive first look at new renderings for 110 East 16th Street, a Morris Adjmi Architects-designed mixed-use building which hopes to rise 21 floors above ground. The City Landmark Preservation granted approval in January for the proposal, though the ULURP process is still underway. The current structure, a nine-story parking garage, may be one of the few in the area whose demolition won’t cause a stir.
Permits have been filed for a three-story commercial building at 55-03 Myrtle Avenue in Ridgewood, Queens. The site is four blocks away from the Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenue subway station, serviced by the L and M trains. Kassin Steven of Grant Projects is the developer for the project.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 510 Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Renderings for the project were first teased in 2015 by ODA, but the filed permits reveal a change in design, with Woods Bagot responsible design.
Concrete has reached the third floor at 805 Washington Heights, a residential project rising in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building is now expected to become a nine-story residential, part of a revision to the permits made in April of this year. This comes after the permits reflected downsizing to six stories when we reported on it in October. Levi Balkany of Happy Living Development is responsible for the applications.
