A schematic diagram has been revealed of the 20-story, 112-unit mixed-use project planned at 91 Leonard Street, a.k.a. 351-355 Broadway, in TriBeCa. YIMBY initially reported on building applications nearly a year ago. Now YIMBY can report that foundation work is underway, as well, as seen in a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums.
In May, schematic drawings offered a first glimpse of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture-designed 18-story, 133-unit mixed-use complex at 121 East 22nd Street (a.k.a. 122 East 23rd Street), in Gramercy. A rendering has now been revealed of the main 18-story tower portion, to rise on the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue, Archdaily reported. The latest building permits indicate the complex, comprised of 18- and 13-story components, will encompass 275,387 square feet, unchanged from May. There will be 12,125 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The units above will be condominiums ranging from studios to five-bedrooms, averaging 1,492 square feet apiece. Toll Brothers City Living is the developer and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The block-thru site has been cleared of its four-story predecessors. Completion is expected in 2018.
Construction has wrapped up on 959 First Avenue, a 29-story, 113-unit mixed-use tower under development between East 52nd and East 53rd Street, in Midtown East. When YIMBY last checked in on the project in early 2015, façade installation was still underway. The latest photos were posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Dubbed the Sutton, it measures 194,201 square feet and rises 353 feet above street level. There will be 2,714 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units above, averaging 1,440 square feet apiece. Ninety of the apartments will be condominiums ranging from studios to four-bedrooms, plus a few penthouses, the largest of which has seven bedrooms. The other 23 apartments (20 percent of the total) will be designated as affordable. Toll Brothers City Living is the developer. Incorporated Architecture & Design is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the executive architect. Occupancy can probably be expected soon.
The Harrison, N.Y., Town Board has approved plans to build two five-story residential buildings, with a total of 421 residential units, at 105 Corporate Park Drive. Harrison is in southern Westchester County. The residential units will be rental apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, of which 10 percent (42 units) will be designated as affordable. The complex will be accommodated by 752 parking spaces and a 5,400-square-foot restaurant. The 10.35-acre property is currently occupied by two three-story, 87,700-square-foot office buildings built during the 1970s. Both will be demolished, although the residential complex will take on a similar footprint. Normandy Real Estate Partners and Toll Brothers are the developers. Sullivan Architecture is behind the design. Construction is expected to start during the first half of 2017.
It was over two years ago that we first saw a rendering of the mixed-use building under construction at 55 West 17th Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues in Chelsea. Much has been done since then, and now the bulk of building’s façade is visible. YIMBY got to step inside the project, designed by Morris Adjmi, on Wednesday.
