In December of 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the planned 14-story, 52-key hotel at 1162 Broadway, between West 27th and 28th streets in NoMad, located within the Madison Square North Historic District. Applications for the project were submitted in May of 2014, but filings were incomplete until yesterday, when Aini Assests filed drawings with the Department of Buildings. The building will have 24,325 square feet of commercial space and there will be a café or restaurant on the ground floor. Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design. The site is currently occupied by a 26-foot-wide, two-story commercial structure, and demolition permits were filed this past December. The LPC also recently approved plans for a hotel next door at 1164 Broadway.
It was in July of 2014 that YIMBY brought you word of plans for the site of an office building at 199 Jay Street, at the corner of the small section of Nassau Street before the Manhattan Bridge ramps, in Downtown Brooklyn. A month later, we showed you a rendering of the project. Since then the existing building was demolished. Other than that, however, the project has barely pierced the ground, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, and it has a long way to go before it achieves its 33-story design.
The New York Botanical Garden has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a mixed-use development assemblage at 2856-2870 Webster Avenue and 412 Bedford Park Boulevard, in Bedford Park. According to Curbed NY, the site could accommodate roughly 300 residential units, in addition to a 125-plus-key hotel and at least 12,000 square feet of retail. The site is located right above the Metro-North Railroad’s Botanical Garden station and currently consists of multiple low-rise commercial buildings. Proposal submissions are due on March 1, and the Garden is hoping to choose a developer before April.
When YIMBY last visited the site of the 192-room hotel at 100 Greenwich in October 2015, the 25-story tower’s foundations were only beginning to take shape. Rebar was being laid out for the concrete foundation mat at the rear on the site, while the front portion was still under excavation. Three months later, the building is yet to breach ground level, but its foundations are virtually complete.
Permits were filed Thursday for a 40-story-tall, 164-key hotel at 1185 Broadway, at the northwest corner of West 28th Street, in NoMad/Midtown South. The site’s single-story commercial building, with six businesses, was demolished in 2015, and this will be a big change for the property.
