341 Canal Street [Curbed]: The Landmarks Preservation Commission gave approval to a “Gene Kaufman-designed six-story retail and residential building” at 341 Canal Street in SoHo. The site has remained vacant for years for financial reasons, but soon, something may finally rise on the street corner.
335 St Nicholas Avenue [Wychoff Heights]: Demolition permits have been submitted for a one-story office and warehouse building at 335 St. Nicholas Avenue in Ridgewood. A “new four-story residential building is proposed for the site,” which will house 14 units.
363-365 Bond Street [DNAinfo New York]: Resident complaints have confirmed that foundation work is well underway at 365 Bond Street in Gowanus, where the Lightstone Group is building a 700-unit abode. Pictorial evidence shows pile-drivers at work, grounding the roots for what will become a 12-story building. Pile driving should “continue for the next 30 business days”.
49 Dupont Street [The Real Deal]: On Monday, Dupont Street Developers bought a 10-parcel industrial warehouse at 49 Dupont Street with “260,911 square feet of as-of-right development potential,” in addition to another 100,000 square feet in potential affordable housing bonuses. Directly across from residential projects 77 Commercial and Greenpoint Landing, this underdeveloped and soon-to-be rapidly changing area of Greenpoint will utilize its convenient location, with proximity to Manhattan, LIC and DoBro. Reportedly, the “new owners were considering a plan to build three residential towers on the site”.
227 Cherry Street [Bowery Boogie]: Demolition is going smoothly at the Pathmark site of Extell’s planned 68-story and 787-unit residential tower on the Lower East Side, at 227 Cherry Street. In a part of Manhattan where skyscrapers are non-existent, Extell’s tower will challenge New Yorkers on how they view the predominantly low-income housing neighborhood; expect close coverage of this project’s progress.
311 State Street [Brownstoner]: Developer State Renaissance Townhomes owns another stretch of State Street in Boerum Hill, this time on the corner of Hoyt Street. Although “no work has started behind the construction fence,” a rendering of Neo-Georgian townhouses, like the ones at 345-353 State, has been posted on site. According to PropertyShark, the site comes with 25,534 buildable square feet.
