Over the summer of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of New Empire Real Estate’s planned high-rise residential tower at 131 East 47th Street, in Midtown East, and now new building applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings. The new 122-unit building will encompass 173,059 square feet and will rise 49 stories, or 581 feet, above street level. Beginning on the second story, there will be three residential units per floor through floor 12 and floors 14 through 35, then two units per floor on floors 37 through 47. The 48th floor will contain a full-floor penthouse, and floors 13, 36, and 49 will contain mechanical equipment.
YIMBY last checked in on the 65-story, 268-unit residential tower being built at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, back in October of 2015, when the structure topped out at 715 feet above street level. Since then, glass installation has been rapidly underway to encapsulate the residential interiors, which will eventually contain a total of 93 condominiums and 175 rental apartments. YIMBY now has close-up renderings of the 632,828-square-foot tower.
When we last checked in on the site of Tribeca Associates’ planned 26-story, 228-key hotel at 143 Fulton Street, between Broadway and Nassau Street in the Financial District, demolition of its three-story occupant was underway. Since then, demolition has been completed and, thanks to a YIMBY reader, we have a new look at the coming hotel.
Back in April 0f 2015, the Department of City Planning selected Brooklyn-based Monadnock Development to build an all-affordable residential building with commercial space at the parking lot at 133-45 – 133-55 41st Avenue, in Downtown Flushing. Now the developer has filed applications for the project, which will rise 10 stories and contain 232 residential units. The new building, dubbed One Flushing, will encompass 286,193 square feet, and ground-floor commercial-retail and community facility space will total 28,864 and 13,872 square feet, respectively. Apartments will begin on the second floor and should average 792 square feet apiece.
As warm weather ushers the beginning of March, Rockrose Development’s 43-25 Hunter Street in Long Island City stands over 35-stories-tall. At 509 feet, the tower will become the fourth tallest in Queens upon its completion in 2017, when its 974 units will make it one of the city’s largest residential buildings.
