Another High Line-hugging condo building is coming to West Chelsea. Related Companies has filed plans for a 10-story residential project at 501 West 18th Street, on a lot that stretches across 10th Avenue between West 18th and 19th streets.
Construction has topped out on the 15-story, 211-unit mixed-use building under development, as part of the Essex Crossing mega-development, at 145 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side. The structure can be seen in an update by Bowery Boogie. The project encompasses 283,178 square feet. There will be 73,000 square feet of commercial-retail space across the ground through second levels, followed by rental apartments on the floors above. Half of the apartments, or 105 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Delancey Street Associates, comprised of L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, and BFC Partners, is the developer. Beyer Blinder Belle is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2017.
Since YIMBY’s previous update in May, the 28-story, 150-unit mixed-use tower under development at 436 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, has topped out and begun façade installation. The latest photo of the project was posted to the YIMBY Forums by construction photographer Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the structure measures 155,100 square feet and stands 310 feet above street level. There will be 23,740 square feet of retail space across the cellar through third floors. The residential units above should average 793 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Yoel Schwimmer is the developer and ODA New York is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
An updated rendering has been revealed for the phase two retail portion of Neptune/Sixth, a multi-building, mixed-use development located at 532 Neptune Avenue and 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, in Coney Island. The first phase, now under construction, consists of a seven-story, 161,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building. The second phase of the project will be a single-story, 90,000-square-foot retail building. CVS Pharmacy recently signed a lease for 11,300 square feet in the building and construction is set to begin later this fall.
A rendering has been revealed of the 14-story, 50-unit mixed-use building planned at 644 East 14th Street, located on the corner of Avenue C in the East Village. The building will encompass 76,259 square feet and rise 162 feet above street level, Real Estate Weekly reported. There will be 8,064 square feet of retail and 21,575 square feet of community facility space located within the tower’s three-story base. The residential units above should average 677 square feet, which indicates rental apartments. The developer is Opal Holdings, which acquired the site for $23 million over the summer. Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based architecture firm is behind the design. After YIMBY reported on the project’s initial filings when they were submitted in 2014, the site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished in late 2015.
