The 33-story, 419-foot-tall mixed-use building under development at 172 Madison Avenue, on the northwest corner of East 33rd Street in Midtown South, has now topped out and exterior construction is wrapping up. The update comes thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by JC_Heights. The 132,425-square-foot tower will eventually host 69 condominiums, averaging 1,795 square feet apiece and coming in one- to three-bedroom configurations. There will also be a mansion on the third floor and the tower will be topped by a four full-floor penthouses and a Sky House triplex apartment. The ground floor will have 4,361 square feet of retail space. Amenities include a swimming pool with accessory saunas and lockers (there will also be two private pools), a fitness center, a yoga/ballet room, bike storage, a children’s playroom, an entertainment lounge, a dog washing station, and private residential storage units. Tessler Developments is behind the project, and Karl Fischer is responsible for the design. Occupancy is expected this fall.
It looks like another supertall will rise in Lower Manhattan. Plans for a 77-story, 600-unit mixed-use tower at 235-247 Cherry Street, on the southern end of the Lower East Side, have surfaced in City Planning documents obtained by Bowery Boogie. The schematic diagram indicates the tower’s roof level will clock in at 983 feet and 8 inches, which would be categorized as a supertall by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH). A parapet enclosing the building’s bulkhead and mechanical equipment would boost the final height even further, possibly past the 1,000-foot mark. JDS Development Group is seeking minor zoning changes to build the tower. Details and renderings of the cantilevering project were first revealed in the spring. At the time, it was learned that the tower would include 150 affordable units, 10,000 square feet of retail, and a 4,600-square-foot senior center. The adjacent 10-story Two Bridges Senior Apartments would also see a renovation. SHoP Architects is behind the design, and Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and Settlement Housing Fund are the property owners. A single-story commercial building will have to be demolished. Construction is not expected to begin until at least 2018.
The 11-story, six-unit mixed-use building under development at 239 Tenth Avenue, located on the corner of West 24th Street in West Chelsea, is now four stories above street level. The progress report comes from Curbed, and the site has been decorated with murals by local artist Rivka Katvan. Dubbed The Getty, it will eventually encompass 54,662 square feet, featuring 13,437 square feet of commercial space across the cellar through second floors, followed by two duplex units spanning the third and fourth floors, a single apartment per floor on level five through nine, and a duplex penthouse on the 10th through 11th floors (also featuring a roof terrace). The units, averaging 4,674 square feet apiece, will be condominiums. Victor Group and SHVO, are the developers, and Peter Marino is the architect. Completion can be expected in 2017. Previously, on multiple occasions, YIMBY brought you renderings of the project.
Queens-based Ghotra Property has filed applications for two four-story, seven-unit mixed-use buildings at 114-01 – 114-05 Atlantic Avenue, in Richmond Hill. From west to east, they will measure 8,625 square feet and 7,680 square feet, respectively. Both will feature a 681-square-foot retail unit on the ground floor, followed by seven residential units across the rest of each structure. Across the entire development, the residential units should average 852 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include a total of three off-street parking spots. Manish S. Savani’s Briarwood-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 4,979-square-foot assemblage, at the corner of 114th Street, is currently occupied by two single-story commercial-retail buildings. Demolition permits have not been filed. The site is located four blocks from the 111th Street stop on the J train.
Construction has reached street level at the site of a planned 25-story, 368-unit mixed-use building at 210 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. A photo of the progress was posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Under development is a 405,002-square-foot project that will feature nearly 20,000 square feet of retail on the ground and cellar levels. Residential units will begin on the third floor and should average 825 square feet apiece. The apartments will be rentals, and 74 of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Amenities include a 130-car underground garage, storage for 184 bikes, “accessory amenity spaces” on the second floor, outdoor terraces on the second and 15th floors, and a lounge on the 15th floor. Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates are the developers, while Handel Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2017.
