38-Unit Affordable Mixed-Use Building Planned at 841 St. Nicholas Avenue, Hamilton Heights

Through a deal with the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), BRP Companies is planning a 38-unit mixed-use building at 841-847 St. Nicholas Avenue, located on the corner of West 152nd Street in Hamilton Heights. The new building will measure 32,470 square feet, DNAinfo reported. All of the project’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The Dance Theatre of Harlem will also have studio space on the ground floor. New building applications have not been filed at this time. The vacant, 7,063-square-foot site is located within the Hamilton Heights/Sugar Hill Northwest Historic District, meaning the Landmarks Preservation Commission has to approve the new building.

City Council Approves Five-Building, 1,586-Unit Mixed-Use Project at 550 Washington Street, Hudson Square

Last week, the City Council approved plans for Atlas Capital Group and Westbrook Partners to acquire $100 million worth of air rights from Pier 40, overseen by the Hudson River Park Trust, to develop a 1,586-unit mixed-use complex at 550 Washington Street, in Hudson Square. The project is set to include five towers, the New York Times reported, although their height was not disclosed.

Pier 26

New Renderings Revealed of Plans to Turn Pier 26 Into Public Park, TriBeCa

New renderings have been revealed of the Hudson River Park Trust’s plans to transform the mostly vacant, 800-foot-long Pier 26, located in the Hudson River off TriBeCa, between North Moore and Hubert streets, into a public park. The $30 million overhaul would include a maritime education center, known as an estuarium, multiple landscaped areas with different kinds of vegetation, walking paths, seating, and playgrounds. The overhaul is getting equal financing from the city, the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, and Citigroup, through a donation. OLIN Studio, a landscape architecture firm, is designing much of the pier, although Rafael Viñoly’s firm is designing the estuarium building. The plans are not final, although construction is anticipated to begin in roughly a year, Tribeca Citizen reported.
