New renderings have been exclusively revealed to YIMBY for the transformation of 165 Mercer Street, in SoHo. The historic building was constructed between 1870 and 1871 under design by Henry Fernbach, and faithfully served the city as a parking garage since 1921. However, as we reported in September of 2016, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved changes for the site to undergo a conversion to office and retail use, which will be accompanied by a new penthouse level, as well.
A new partially-affordable housing project is getting ready to open at 10 Halletts Point, in Astoria, Queens. The 22-story mixed-use complex is rising at 26-01 1st Street, positioned right on the waterfront, across from Manhattan’s Yorkville. This is the first of a seven-building mega-development led by the Durst Organization to reinvigorate the Halletts Point peninsula. Once complete, the entirety will yield 2.4 million square feet of space and create 2,400 rental units, 480 of which will be affordable.
