Mecanoo To Lead New York Public Library Renovations At Bryant Park, Midtown

The New York Public Library Main Branch, located at 5th Avenue and 42nd Street, in Midtown, has selected the Netherlands-based architecture firm Mecanoo to design the building’s $300 million renovation, according to the New York Times. Beyer Blinder Belle will serve as the architect of record, and the 645,680 square-foot-building will receive new interiors. More space will also be opened to the public. Last year, the library abandoned planned renovations that would have been led by Norman Foster.

Permits Filed: 328 East 62nd Street, Upper East Side

A corner lot next to an off-ramp for the Queensboro Bridge seems like an unusual place to build a school or medical center, but one developer intends to do exactly that. New building applications were filed for a seven-story community facility building at 328 East 62nd Street, on the corner of a four-block-long street that cuts north between First and Second Avenues and shuttles cars off the bridge.

Seven-Story Expansion Of Treatment Center Tops Out At 25 Avenue D, East Village

The horizontal expansion of the seven-story building at 25 Avenue D, in the East Village, appears to be structurally complete, according to EV Grieve. Educational Alliance is building the expansion to their existing facility, which is used to treat adults with chemical dependancies. The new addition will be used to house patients, and according to filings, there will be a total of 37 units. The building has not yet received its façade, but a 2016 opening seems reasonable. WSP Cantor Seinuk is the engineer of record.
