Mixed Rulings for Conversion of 346 Broadway, TriBeCa

It was back in December of 2014 that the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved (on its second attempt) the residential conversion of the former New York Life Insurance Company Building, later a city office building, at 346 Broadway, in TriBeCa. However, in just the past two weeks, two rulings have come down that will impact the plan from developers Peebles Corporation and Elad Group, being marketed using the alternate address 108 Leonard Street.

Eight-Story, 54-Unit Mixed-Use Building Tops Out At 264 West 140th Street, Harlem

Back in October of 2015, construction was underway on the ground floor of the eight-story, 54-unit mixed-use building being developed at 275 West 140th Street, in northern Harlem. Now, Harlem+Bespoke reports the structure has topped out, and it appears façade installation is imminent. Dubbed Strivers Plaza, the 64,948-square-foot project will eventually host studio, one-, and two-bedroom rental apartments. Individual units should average 876 square feet apiece, and amenities listed in the Schedule A include recreational rooms, storage for 28 bikes, an outdoor recreational area on the second floor, refuse rooms on each floor, and a rooftop terrace on the seventh floor. An 8,024-square-foot supermarket will occupy most of the ground floor, along with a 498-square-foot community facility. Radson Development is developing and Aufgang Architects is behind the design.

61-Unit Condominium Project Could Be Coming To 517 West 29th Street, West Chelsea

Back in October of 2015, Six Sigma was in contract to buy the six-story, 55,000-square-foot commercial building at 517-523 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea, for $54 million. The developer has since closed on the purchase and has now filed exploratory applications with the Attorney General’s office to gauge the demand for a potential condominium project, The Real Deal reports. Although details are sparse, the project would include 61 condominium units and ground-floor retail space. It’s not clear if the existing building would be demolished for a new one, although the site can accommodate up to 74,000 square feet of development potential (which means it currently has 19,000 square feet of air rights). Nothing has been filed yet with the Department of Buildings.

Five-Story, Eight-Unit Mixed-Use Building Filed At 578 Fifth Avenue, South Slope

Brooklyn-based Eight & Eight Development has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 578 Fifth Avenue, in South Slope, located around the block from the Prospect Avenue stop on the R train. The new building will encompass 10,726 square feet and will include 1,549 square feet of retail space across the ground floor and part of the cellar. Floors two through five will contain two residential units each. The apartments should average 740 square feet apiece, which means rental units are likely in the works. Lower Manhattan-based Chi F. Lau Architect is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in June of 2015 for the site’s existing two-story, 25-foot-wide commercial building.


372 Lafayette Street

Construction Completed on Six-Story, Eight-Unit Mixed-Use Building at 372 Lafayette Street, NoHo

Back in September of 2014, YIMBY brought you an update on adjacent residential projects at 10 Bond Street and 372 Lafayette Street (a.k.a. 11 Great Jones Street), in NoHo. The former project, a seven-story, 11-unit condominium building, went on the to have construction completed by the end of the summer of 2015. Construction has since entirely wrapped up on the latter project, a six-story, eight-unit residential building, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The property is completely unobscured from scaffolding and occupancy is currently underway. The ground floor and cellar levels will contain 2,143 square feet of retail space. The eight rental apartments above measure between 1,300 and 2,000 square feet apiece, coming in two- and three-bedroom configurations, although some units appear to have been divided into multiple apartments. Kano Properties is the developer, and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design.
