The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now reviewing proposals to renovate and refurbish ground-floor storefronts at the historic Windemere Building in Hell’s Kitchen. Renderings from Ilya Chistiakov Architects were presented to the LPC on January 14, 2021 at a virtual public hearing, and the commission has yet to issue an official response to the proposals.
Exterior work is nearing completion on Lantern House, a pair of residential buildings straddling the High Line at 515 West 18th Street in Chelsea. Developed by Related Companies and designed by Thomas Heatherwick with SLCE Architects as the architect of record, the ten- and 21-story structures yield a total of 181 residential units with sales and marketing led by Related Sales LLC and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group. Lantern House is bound by Tenth Avenue the east, West 18th Street to the south, West 19th Street to the north, and Frank Gehry’s IAC Building immediately to the west.
In an exclusive reveal, new renderings from ODA offer a first look at The Collective’s forthcoming New York City flagship in North Brooklyn. Located at 555 Broadway on the border of South Williamsburg and Broadway Triangle, the building will top out at 28 stories and contain a mix of rental apartments, short-stay rooms, shared office space, retail, community facilities, and a collection of amenity spaces.
Excavation has begun at 241 West 28th Street, the site of a 22-story, 479-unit residential project in Chelsea. Designed by COOKFOX for MAG Partners, Atalaya, Safanad, and Qualitas, the two-tower development is progressing due to $173 million in construction financing arranged by Maverick Commercial Properties. MAG Partners acquired the property, which is located between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, in December 2018 and established a 99-year ground lease with Edison Properties. Thirty percent of the residential units will be reserved for low- and middle-income households.
YIMBY has exclusive new renderings for an upcoming 21-story mixed-use project at 335 Fifth Avenue in the Midtown, Manhattan neighborhood of NoMad. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect PC and developed by James and Jerry Pi of Pi Capital Partners, the 72,000-square-foot building will yield 83 rental apartments above 10,000 square feet of commercial retail space, with the latter component spanning three stories at the base. The corner site is located at the intersection of Fifth Avenue and East 33rd Street, directly to the east of the Empire State Building.
