Extell is wrapping up work on its part affordable housing, part-luxe condo project at 70 Charlton Street, in the area west of Soho called Hudson Square. Tectonic recently swung by the site between Varick and Hudson Streets and captured the latest progress.
New renderings, depicting the final design, are now available for the 25-story, 115-unit mixed-use building under development at 565 Broome Street (a.k.a. 100 Varick Street), in Hudson Square. The renderings come as sales have launched for the project’s condominiums. The latest building permits indicate the structure will eventually encompass 322,154 square feet and rise 290 feet above street level to its roof, which doesn’t include the bulkhead.
It’s been nearly a year since we checked in on Related’s rental development at 261 Hudson Street, and a lot has happened since then. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that façade work on the 12-story project is nearly complete.
Jack Resnick & Sons is planning to renovate and reposition the nine-story, 481,184-square-foot office building at 315 Hudson Street, in Hudson Square. FXFOWLE Architects will be designing the renovation, which will include a 10,000-square-foot landscaped rooftop terrace, a redesigned lobby, upgraded mechanical equipment and elevators, and new windows, according to Real Estate Weekly. New amenities include bike storage space with locker rooms. The property boasts 52,000-square-foot floor plates, and the top five floors (or 225,000 square feet of contiguous space) is slated to be ready for occupancy in early 2019. Other portions of the LEED-certified building, which contains ground-floor retail, are available for immediate occupancy.
Yesterday, the Hudson River Park Trust launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design phase of Pier 40’s much needed repair and renovation, Crain’s reported. The 15-acre sports facility is located in the Hudson River off Hudson Square and serves a key role in Westbrook Partners’ and Atlas Capital Group’s planned mixed-use development at 550 Washington Street, which is currently moving through the city’s Urban Land Use Review Process (ULURP). The developers plan to transfer roughly $100 million worth of air rights off Pier 40, although they will have to wait until the ULURP is finished (which legalizes the sale). The proceeds from the sale would fund Pier 40’s eventual overhaul, which will include a 10-year plan to replace more than half of its 3,500 steel piles. ULURP for the project across the street is expected to wrap up this fall, and, at that point, the Hudson River Park Trust will launch another RFP in search for a team to follow through with the design plans.
