219 Hudson Street [Tribeca Citizen]: Dubbed Hudson Square Hotel, Rafi Gibly is developing an 11-story and 50-60-room hotel and penthouse building — of 30,000 square feet — at the vacant lot of 219 Hudson Street, in Hudson Square; no permits have been filed, but “they expect the hotel to open by early 2016.”

245 East 36th Street [The Real Deal]: Perlbinder Realty has received its third four-year extension for their planned 34-story, mixed-use high-rise at the vacant lot of 245 East 36th Street, in Murray Hill; the site has been in the works since 2002, and groundbreaking has yet to commence.

520 West 41st Street [Commercial Observer]: Larry Silverstein has filed demolition permits for a two-story commercial structure at 514 11th Avenue — or 520 West 41st Street, on the Far West Side — to make way for a planned 1,100-foot, 1,400-unit and roughly 100-story mixed-use tower.

242 West 53rd Street [DNAinfo New York]: The two-story Roseland Ballroom — at 242 West 53rd Street, in the Theater District — is currently being demolished from the inside, out; Algin Management has filed for a 62-story and 426-unit mixed-use tower as a replacement, and CetraRuddy is designing.

231 East Houston Street [The Lo-Down]: Halpern Real Estate Ventures has plans for a 12-story and 78-unit residential tower spanning 327-331 East Houston Street, on the Lower East Side; the lots are currently vacant, and SBJ is designing.

361 Central Park West [West Side Rag]: 361 Central Park West — a multi-story church, on the Upper West Side — is currently undergoing asbestos removal, possibly to quicken its redevelopment into residential; most recently, owner Joseph Brunner had apparently been looking to flip the site.

330 Throop Avenue [Brownstoner]: Demolition of 330 Throop Avenue’s three-story wood-framed building — in Bedford-Stuyvesant — is currently underway, and the site is now awaiting debris removal; applications were filed this summer for a four-story and eight-unit residential building.

363-365 Bond Street [Gowanus Your Face Off]: Foundation work is currently underway at 363 Bond Street — in Gowanus — where the Lightstone Group is building a 12-story and 700-unit structure; pile driving has finished on the northern end of the site. Demolition of additional structures is currently underway.

2455 Frederick Douglass Boulevard [Harlem+Bespoke]: A single-floor addition to an existing five-story tenement building — at 2455 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, in Harlem — appears complete; the 12-unit building also sports a revived façade.
