The Brooklyn-based development and design firm Barrett Design has filed applications for a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 3 East 3rd Street, on the western end of the East Village, a few steps from Bowery. The new building will measure 17,520 square feet. It will host 3,135 square feet of retail space across the cellar, the ground floor, and an upper mezzanine level. There will be full-floor residential units on the second through fifth floors, followed by a duplex penthouse on the sixth and seventh floors. The penthouse will sport an exclusive roof terrace. Private residential storage space will be available to all units. Averaging 2,101 square feet apiece, the apartments will very likely be condos. The 40-foot-wide, 3,055-square-foot lot is occupied by a three-story commercial building. Permits were filed in August to demolish it.
A rendering has been revealed of the 11-story, 73-unit mixed-use building planned at 609 Fourth Avenue, located on the corner of 18th Street in South Slope. Recently filed new building applications indicate the project will encompass 93,050 square feet. It will include 4,960 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units above should average 785 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. CGI Strategies is the developer and Issac & Stern Architects is behind the design, DNAinfo reported. The 12,520-square-foot assemblage currently consists of three three-story townhouses along Fourth Avenue, a single-story commercial building on the corner, and a small vacant lot along 18th Street. Demolition permits were filed earlier this year. The Prospect Avenue stop on the R train is two blocks away.
YIMBY wouldn’t ordinarily cover the design for a restaurant interior, but one coming Financial District eatery is a special case. Last Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a proposal for Japanese Chef Nobuyuki “Nobu” Matsuhisa’s new outpost at 195 Broadway.
Brooklyn-based Scarano Realty has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 326 Avenue U, in central Gravesend. The project will measure 11,661 square feet. It will include retail space in the cellar and on a mezzanine level connected to the ground floor. The residential units will be located on the second through sixth floors and should average 626 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities will include six off-street parking spaces, storage for 20 bikes, a recreation room on the ground floor, laundry facilities, and a roof terrace. David Silberman’s Flushing-based firm is the applicant of record. The 2,227-square-foot property is currently vacant. The Avenue U stop on the F train is down the block.
Construction has reached the 13th floor on the 28-story, 104-unit mixed-use tower under development at 200 East 95th Street (a.k.a. 1681 Third Avenue), on the Upper East Side. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower, dubbed the Kent, will eventually encompass 317,664 square feet and rise 392 feet to its pinnacle. It will have 13,225 square feet of retail space across the ground floor and the first cellar level. The residential units above, which will be condominiums, will range from two- to five-bedrooms, averaging 2,500 square feet apiece. Extell Development Company is the developer and Beyer Blinder Belle is behind the architecture. Champalimaud has been tasked with the interiors and West 8 is the landscape architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
