Back in January of 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the eight-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 372 Broadway, in TriBeCa. Construction began on the building’s conversion in early 2015, and now YIMBY has new details and never-before-seen renderings of the condominium project, which goes by Six Cortlandt Alley. Curbed NY was the first to report on the project’s sales launch.
Nissan Cohen, doing business as an anonymous Bronx-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 2160 Powell Avenue, in Unionport, located five blocks south of the Castle Hill Avenue stop on the 6 train. The structure, to rise on a triangular plot bound by Powell Avenue and the Cross Bronx Expressway, will measure 4,985 square feet. The first two floors will host 3,197 square feet of commercial-retail space, and the top floor will contain two apartments, averaging 894 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald J. Caliendo is the architect of record. The 3,271-square-foot lot is currently vacant.
Back in 2014, Thor Equities and General Growth Properties were in contract to acquire the four-story, 21,837-square-foot commercial-retail building at 220 West 57th Street, in Midtown. Now, the developers are expecting to close on the property – an individual landmark dubbed the Society House of the American Society of Civil Engineers – for $85 million in June, according to The Real Deal. Its existing tenant, Lee’s Art Shop, is in the process of moving out, probably in time for the sale, DNAinfo reports. The new owners plan to renovate the building into luxury retail space. Any exterior alterations to the building will have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The property comes with 104,160 square feet of air rights.
Back in November of 2015, renderings were revealed of the planned 15-story, 99-unit mixed-use building planned at 42-20 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Now, excavation is ongoing at the site, The Court Square Blog reports. It was previously reported the project would rise 18 stories and contain 195 rental apartments, but filings were never updated to reflect those figures; they still detail a 15-story, 99-unit project. The structure will encompass 141,077 square feet, of which 20,304 square feet will be designated for ground-floor retail. The residential units should average 1,160 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include a 573-square-foot bicycle storage room, private residential storage, and an inner courtyard. Rabsky Group is the developer, with ODA New York behind the design. Completion is expected in spring 2018, per on-site signage.
Back in February, the foundation was being poured for the 12-story, 75-unit mixed-use building under development at 69 East 125th Street, in East Harlem. Now, the project is seven stories above street level and rising, Harlem+Bespoke reports. Once complete, the 80,619-square-foot building will feature 5,643 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units, averaging a rental-sized 767 square feet apiece, will fill the rest of the building. Fifteen of the apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. As reported previously, amenities include a 15-car garage in the cellar, bike storage, a laundry, private residential storage, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace. Greystone Property Development is the developer and Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2017.
