Happy Living Development has filed applications for a 12-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 441 West 37th Street, in Midtown West. The project will measure 19,441 square feet in its entirety. Part of the ground floor will contain a 357-square-foot doctor’s office. The rest of the ground floor and the second floor will host a single duplex unit, followed by full-floor apartments on the third through eighth floors. Two duplex apartments will be located across the ninth through 12th floors. The units should average 1,647 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities will include private residential storage space, bike storage, “recreation space” on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. De-Jan Lu’s Greenwich Village-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,468-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The nearest subway station is the 34 St – Hudson Yards terminus of the 7 train.
The most prominent new development in the lower West 40s is obviously of the super-sized variety, with projects like 551 Tenth Avenue and 605 West 42nd Street now dominating the neighborhood. But there are a few smaller lots remaining that will host more modestly-sized buildings, and among those is 572 Eleventh Avenue, which used to house a diner. Now, YIMBY has the reveal for its replacement — which will span from 43rd all the way to 44th Street — designed by CetraRuddy, and under development by the Moinian Group.
Over the past few months, the five-building, seven-million-square-foot mixed-use development dubbed Manhattan West, located on the mega-block bound by Ninth and Tenth avenues and West 31st and 33rd streets, has been quickly taking shape. In April, the project’s 62-story, 844-unit residential tower at 401 West 31st Street, dubbed Three Manhattan West, topped out. And work has been underway for over a year to modernize the 16-story, 1.8-million square-foot building at 450 West 33rd Street, dubbed Five Manhattan West. Now, new renderings have been revealed of the office portion of the project, dubbed One and Two Manhattan West.
In July of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the seven-story, 12-unit mixed-use building under development at 411 Ninth Avenue, located on the corner of West 33rd Street in Midtown West. Now, the project is under construction and currently four stories above street level, as seen in photos by our friend Tectonic. Dubbed Skylight House, the structure will encompass 21,246 square feet. It will feature 1,395 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by two residential units per floor beginning on the second. The units will be rental apartments and should average 920 square feet apiece. Amenities include storage space for 11 bikes and an outdoor terrace on the roof. Property owner James Papaionnou is the developer, while H. Thomas O’Hara’s Midtown-based HTO Architect is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected later this year or in early 2017.
In July of 2015, the 62-story, 844-unit residential building under development at 401 West 31st Street, in Midtown West, was a single floor above the street level. Now, the 807,384-square-foot building, dubbed Three Manhattan West, has topped out, Curbed NY reports. The 702-foot-tall structure will host 7,931 square feet of retail on the ground floor, followed by amenities on the second and third floors, and residential units on the fourth through 62nd floor. The rental apartments should average 877 square feet apiece, with 169 of them renting at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Brookfield Properties is the developer with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill behind the design and SLCE Architects serving as the architect of record. Completion is expected in fall 2017, though occupancy is expected earlier.
