Demolition permits have been filed for the home of the Italian American Museum, who operate out of 185, 187, and 189 Grand Street in Little Italy, Manhattan. However, this is not a disappointment for the institution. They had been trying to sell their current location for years, on the condition that they are provided with rent-free space within the replacement. They were finally successful in February 2017, when their buildings were purchased for $14.8 million by Oved Group and Nexus Building Development Group.
A new rendering is out for 62 and 66 North Third Street, two six-story mixed-use buildings in Brooklyn’s flourishing Williamsburg neighborhood. The nearest subway access is the L train’s first stop in Brooklyn, the Bedford Station. The site is just a block away from the river, five blocks south of the State of New York East River Park, and five blocks north of the Domino Sugar Factory development, where a ferry station may soon be built. David Dweck, Steven Ancona, and Michael Marino have joined together for the development.
Permits have been filed for a 10-story mixed-use building at 219 Hudson Street, in SoHo. The site is two blocks away from two Canal Street Subway Stations, serviced collectively by the A, C, E, 1 and 2 trains. YIMBY last reported on the site in October 2015, when Joel Braver of Express Builders JB purchased the site for $13.2 million. The firm has retained ownership and will be responsible for development.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 40-06 68th Street, in Woodside, Queens. The site is a block away from the 69th Street Fisk Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the 7 train, and six blocks away from the 65th Street Station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Tim Chan will be responsible for the development.
A new mixed-use condominium building is racing toward completion in the East Village of Manhattan. 24 2nd Avenue has topped out at the 10th story, with nearly all window installation now complete. Permits were filed for the structure in mid-2015, replacing East Village’s last gas station. AORE Capital is responsible for the development.
