Back in October, YIMBY brought you schematics of the proposed redevelopment options of 550 Washington Street, in Hudson Square, and now The Villager has renderings of the ULURP plans, which would include 1,596 residential units; 255,000 square feet of retail; and a 353-key hotel. The residential units would be spread across 1,334,100 square feet of space, and 500 of the units will go towards affordable and supportive housing. The project would also include elevated park space. COOKFOX Architects is behind the design. Westbrook Partners and Atlas Capital Group are developing.
A year ago, Lalezarian Properties put a pair of four-story buildings on Charlton Street in Hudson Square on the market for $50 million. No one paid that hefty price, and now principal Kevin Lalezarian has decided to develop the site between Hudson and Greenwich Streets himself.
Yesterday, the New York Times reported that 550 Washington Street would soon traverse ULURP as its owners, Westbrook Partners and Atlas Capital Group, want to redevelop the existing building in exchange for air rights from the failing Pier 40, which would also be saved. And now YIMBY has the first look at massing diagrams of the proposed plans, which reflect both the as-of-right redevelopment option, as well as what the site would look like if the ULURP application is approved.
Just over a year ago, applications were filed for a 10-story, 56-key hotel building at 219 Hudson Street, in Hudson Square, and since then, the DOB has disapproved of the plans. But now, developer Rafi Gibly has recently sold the development site to Brooklyn-based developer Joel Braver in a $13.2 million deal. It’s not known if the old plans will be reused. The previous plans included a penthouse residential unit, and Rawlings Architects filed for the permit. [The Real Deal]
Back in June, complete renderings were revealed of Extell Development’s 22-story, 114-unit mixed-use building underway at 70 Charlton Street, in Hudson Square, and now the structure is up to the 12th floor, per Curbed, courtesy of Tectonic. The through-block development will contain 2,830 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and a mix of condo and affordable rental units — 92 and 22, respectively — will occupy the floors above. Beyer Blinder Belle is designing, and occupancy is expected in late 2016.
