Permits have been filed for a 19-story mixed-use high-rise at 201 East 125th Street, in East Harlem. The sizable development will rise one block away from the 125th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 4, 5, and 6 trains. The Harlem-125th Street Station for the Metro-North trains is one block further. The Richman Group will be responsible for development.
Construction is moving along quickly on the triangular site at 606 Broadway, which is distinct for two reasons. The first is the unusual shape for a six-story commercial building. The second is that new non-residential buildings aren’t too common for Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood due to landmark restrictions and generally astronomical property values, and this building is going to be entirely commercial. Retail will populate the cellar, first floor, and second, while offices will occupy floors three through six.
Among the many neighborhoods that comprise Lower Manhattan, few have an identity as abstract as “Hudson Square,” which was only dubbed thusly relatively recently, following a re-zoning. While it will still take a few more years for New Yorkers to realize it isn’t “beyond Tribeca,” “below the Village,” or “no bridge, just tunnel,” developers have raced ahead of impending recognition with plans for several new buildings, including 565 Broome Street, 100 Vandam Street, and now, another, at 111 Varick Street.
It’s been a little over four months since we checked in on the construction at 153 Remsen Street, in Brooklyn Heights. Now, scaffolding removal is underway at the 19-story, 60-unit building between Clinton and Court streets. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo sent to YIMBY by prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. Quinlan Development and Lonicera Partners are the developers. Navid Maqami’s S9 Architecture is responsible for the design.
It has been over three months since we checked in on nightclub impresario turned real estate developer Ian Schrager’s residential building under construction at 160 Leroy Street, in the West Village. Since then, much has been accomplished.
