After our first look at Morris Adjmi’s submission to the Landmark Preservation Commission for 419 Broadway back in October, the SoHo building has been approved following a redesign. The accepted proposal has seen a height reduction, as well as a change to the bulkhead.
Just South of Union Square, on Broadway between East 12th and East 13th Streets, there are two Italianate-inspired buildings from 1866 and 1867, at 827-831 Broadway. Back in 2015, the sites had been purchased for $60 million by the real estate investors Samson Klugman of Quality Capital, and Leo Tsimmer of Caerus Group. They had initially filed permits for a 300-foot-tall commercial space, but that was stopped when the Landmarks Preservation Commission awarded landmark status for the 150-year old construction.
YIMBY last reported on 45 Broad Street when workers arrived and barrier installation began back in September. Now, we have a few fresh renderings for the tower, which also depict what the inside of the open-air mechanical floors will look like. The supertall borrows the technique from 432 Park Avenue, and combined with the intricate bronze exterior, the resulting tower could be one of the most attractive additions to the Lower Manhattan skyline in several decades.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a 17-story office building at 710 3rd Avenue, on the corner of 45th Street and 3rd Avenue, in Midtown East, Manhattan. The development will stand four blocks away from the main entrance to Grand Central Train Station, serviced by the 4, 5, 6, 7, and Shuttle trains, along with all lines on the Metro-North railroad.
The redevelopment of the Dime Savings Bank in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, will result in one of the neighborhood’s tallest buildings, and today YIMBY has fresh renderings for the project, designed by Fogarty Finger Architects. Yesterday, The Real Deal reported that Charney Construction & Development and Tavros Capital Partners have acquired a $150 million loan to fund construction and renovation work on the historic bank and new 22-story tower. The developers purchased the site in March of 2016 for $80 million.
