Property owner Guido Passarelli, doing business as an anonymous Syosset, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed applications for a suburban-esque three-story, 197,333-square-foot commercial-retail building at 165 Bricktown Way, in Charleston, located along Staten Island’s West Shore. The new building will contain retail space on the ground floor, followed by a movie theater on the second floor and an upper mezzanine level. The movie theater will be equipped with a concession stand, a bar/lounge, and offices. It’s unclear how many screens the movie theater will have, or who will run it. Philadelphia-based JKRP Architects is the architect of record. The site measures a whopping 479,290 square feet and is currently vacant.
Construction has reached the fifth floor on the 12-story, 125-unit mixed-use project under development at 445 West 35th Street, in the Hudson Yards District. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the structure will eventual measure 121,859 square feet and rise 120 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 4,920 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in addition to 1,188 square feet of community facility space in the cellar. The residential units above should average 740 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Gowanus-based Workshop Design + Architecture is the design architect and Aufgang Architects is the executive architect. YYY Development & Construction is the developer. It is also building the similarly designed 12-story, 186-unit project across Dyer Avenue at 411 West 35th Street. Completion of both is expected in 2017.
It looks like gears are turning on the 12-story retail and residential project slated for 86 Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side. Fresh demolition plans were filed last week for the existing two-story building where the new apartment building is slated to sit, and now YIMBY has the first look at the new structure’s design.
CW Realty Management has entered into contract to acquire, for $45 million, the development assemblage at 187-201 Kent Avenue and 48-50 North 3rd Street, located three blocks in from the East River in northern Williamsburg. The plan is for a 140,000-square-foot mixed-use building with retail space and rental apartments, The Real Deal reported. Retail will be located on the ground and cellar levels, and there will also be a parking garage. The number of units is unknown at this time. The 23,150-square-foot assemblage is currently occupied by one- and two-story warehouses, one of which is currently used as event space. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
Since it was two stories above street level in early June, the 21-story, 95-unit mixed-use building under construction at 221 West 29th Street, in northern Chelsea, has topped out, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 105,337 square feet and rises 210 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 671 square feet of retail space, big enough for a single store, followed by residential units on the second through 21st floors. The apartments will be rentals, averaging 828 square feet apiece, of which 19 (20 percent of the total) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. CBSK Ironstate — a team comprised of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development — is the developer. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is behind the architecture. Occupancy is expected in 2017.
