The proposed 500-foot-tall mixed-use building at 77 Greenwich Street (a.k.a. 42 Trinity Place) suffered a setback on Tuesday. The Landmarks Preservation Commission did not vote to approve its proposed cantilevered portions.
New development rarely happens in Riverdale, because big brick co-op buildings and townhouses populated most of the northwestern Bronx neighborhood in the wave of construction that swept across New York City after World War II. But every once in a while, a developer cobbles together a site in the quiet, middle-class enclave. Yesterday, we spotted permits for a 14-story apartment building at 3644 Oxford Avenue, just over the border from Fieldston.
In May of 2015, excavation work kicked off at 325 Kent Avenue on the first building in Two Trees Management Company’s Domino Sugar Refinery mega-development, in western Williamsburg. Excavation has since wrapped up and foundation work is well underway, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. A 16-story, 401,246-square-foot mixed-use building is being built and will include a total of 522 residential units, 105 of which will be rented at below market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will average 712 square feet apiece. Additionally, there will be 9,378 square feet of retail space broken up into multiple spaces on the ground and second floors. SHoP Architects is the design architect and completion is expected in 2017.
Property owner Santino Battiata has filed applications for a four-story, 18-unit mixed-use building at 132 Wyckoff Avenue, in northern Bushwick, located on the corner of Stanhope Street and right above the DeKalb Avenue Station on the L train. The 38,723-square-foot project will replace two two-story buildings at 132-134 Wyckoff and the vacant lot at 130 Wyckoff. There will be 5,272 and 588 square feet of ground-floor retail and medical office space, respectively. Beginning on the floor above, residential units will average a relatively spacious 959 square feet apiece, and the new building will be topped by rooftop recreational space. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record.
It’s been months since we checked in on Heatherwood Communities’ high-rise residential project at 42-12 28th Street in Long Island City. As of July, it had reached 10 stories. Now, thanks to somewhat dramatic photos taken by our friend Tectonic, we can see that the 58-story building must be close to its final height.
