In June, pawn shop owner Boris Aronov filed plans for a 220-foot-tall office building at 43 West 47th Street, in the block-long Diamond District in Midtown. Now, YIMBY has renderings for the development, which will replace a pair of smaller buildings between Fifth and Sixth avenues.
The 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under construction at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side, has topped out. Photos of the structure can be seen posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 71,578 square feet and rises 139 feet to its roof, or 158 feet including the bulkhead. Retail space will total 5,194 square feet on the ground floor, and the residential units, which will be condominiums, above should average 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the architecture. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
Construction is underway on the top floor of the eight-story, seven-unit mixed-use redevelopment project at 210 Bowery, in Nolita. The site’s existing four-story commercial building is receiving four more floors, or an additional 6,600 square feet of space, as seen in an update by Bowery Boogie.
Foundation work appears to be complete where a 22-story, 252-unit mixed-use building is under development at 416 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg near the East River. The site can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The tower will be connected by a common base with two other 22-story residential towers, located next door at 420 Kent Avenue. That site was cleared of commercial low-rises earlier this year.
Excavation work is underway on the site of a planned 12-story, 110-unit mixed-use building at 79 Avenue D, in the Alphabet City section of the East Village. The developer, L+M Development Partners, has also secured $52.8 million in construction financing. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 114,422 square feet and rise 120 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead.
