YIMBY has reported extensively on Lightstone’s impending condominium tower coming to 130 William Street, in the heart of the Financial District. Plans have evolved substantially since initial building applications were filed back in March of 2015, and initial plans for a mixed-use building with a substantial hotel component were dropped for the all-condominium version as of early 2017. Demolition of the site’s extant structures has since been completed, and now excavation is making quick headway, as per the latest photos from rbrome.
The new Marriott Edition Hotel coming to 701 Seventh Avenue, in Times Square, is approaching its opening day, with glass now covering most of the exterior per the latest photos from Tectonic. While the tower portion of the development stands 42 floors and 512 feet to the rooftop, barely cracking into the mid-levels of the Midtown skyscraper plateau, the base of the development will imminently become iconic on a global level, thanks to an 18,000 square-foot LED screen that promises to become the largest and brightest in Times Square.
One block northeast of the Intervale Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains, new building applications have been filed for a mixed-use structure at 961 Westchester Avenue, in the Bronx’s Foxhurst neighborhood. The building will have a total construction area of just over 35,000 square feet, with 4,937 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, 6,613 square feet of community facility space on the second floor, and 22,078 square feet of residential space on floors three through seven. The project’s 24 units will average about 910 square feet apiece, possibly indicating condominiums. Panos Vikatos is the site’s architect, and Tony Roussos of Westchester Ave LLA LLC is the developer.
Fresh Meadows is about to see two adjacent new developments at 61-10 and 61-12 182nd Street, just south of the Long Island Expressway. Each of the buildings will have a total construction area of about 6,200 feet, with both having 1,718 square feet of commercial space on their ground levels, topped by 2,626 square feet of community facility space, to be occupied by an ambulatory, diagnostic, or treatment center. Anthony Ng of Architects Studio NY is designing the two structures, and Zhou Xu of 182 Plaza LLC is listed as their developer.
Back in February of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 22-12 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City. The lot’s former occupant has since been demolished, and now excavators are beginning to dig away at the site, which will imminently host an 11-story and 175-unit condominium development, designed by ODA New York.
