Permits were filed yesterday for a seven-story residential building at 215 North 10th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is just two blocks from McCarren Park, and four blocks from the Bedford Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains. Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the design.
UPDATE: According to architect James Davidson from SLCE, “This image does not remotely comply with present or future massing constraints available for this site and was meant merely for internal circulation, not for public view. The 1QPS full block site is built full under today’s zoning regulations and cannot support such a structure.”
As if the High Line is not already filled with enough unique and interesting structures that stretch the nearly 1.5 mile long public park, another interesting building is under construction, and rising off the ground. Located at 520 West 20th Street on the western side of the High Line, the future site of, “The Warehouse,” designed by Morris Adjmi and developed by Elijah Equities, has been making good progress in the West Chelsea neighborhood.
The steel superstructure for 68-74 Trinity Place is now rising quickly into the Financial District’s neighborhood skyline. Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, with Stephen B. Jacobs Group as the executive architect, the 26-story building is being developed by Trinity Real Estate, and will include around 310,000 square feet of rentable office space that will start from the seventh floor and continue up to the top of the nearly 500-foot-tall tower.
The Walt Disney Company’s chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger has announced the company’s future New York headquarters will encompass a full city block bounded by Hudson Street, Varick Street, Vandam and Spring Street, in Hudson Square. Rev. Dr. Willaim Lupher of Trinity Church sold the air rights, with the help of CBRE, allowing Disney to develop and take ownership of 4 Hudson Square for 99 years, at a cost of $650 million.
