Hudson Boulevard & Park [Curbed]: Curbed’s latest tour of the Hudson Boulevard & Park — on the Far West Side — reveals great progress. The entry point to the 7 Subway Extension — between West 33rd and 34th — appears nearly built-out, and the park space planned for that block is complete. To the north, the boulevard is being paved and landscaped; foundation work for 3 Hudson Boulevard is also underway.

327 East 22nd Street [Commercial Observer]: Suzuki Capital has filed applications to demolish a four-story building — at 325-327 East 22nd Street, in Gramercy Park — to make way for a seven-story and 10-unit residential building of 19,748 square feet, filed in August. The new building has yet to be revealed, but completion is set for fall 2015; Philip Johnson & Alan Ritchie are designing.

10 South Street [Curbed]: The Battery Maritime Building — a ferry terminal located at 10 South Street, in the Financial District — is currently receiving a “glassy $150 million hotel addition,” being developed by the Dermot Company and designed by Rogers Marvel. Plans stalled in 2009 after financing troubles, but steel-frame construction can now be witnessed atop the existing structure.

121 Plymouth Street [Brownstoner]: A single-story garage “was demolished earlier this summer” to make way for a 1,700 square-foot facility at 121 Plymouth Street — in Dumbo — to accommodate the multiple new parks in the vicinity; excavation and site work are currently ongoing.

719 7th Avenue [The Real Deal]: Amid troubles since SL Green’s acquisition of 719 7th Avenue in July, the developer is planning to demolish the dilapidated three-story building next year, “giving the tenants the required six months notice” to vacate the property; current plans call for a three-story and 25,000 square-foot commercial building to be built.

74 Kent Street [Commercial Observer]: Caerus Group is set to acquire the three-story and 17,845 square-foot manufacturing building at 74 Kent Street, in Greenpoint, for $7.5 million; plans are to restore and convert the existing structure “to an office building for one or more tenants,” and retail is to occupy the ground floor.

180 Orchard Street [The Lo-Down]: The 26-story and 295-room hotel building at 180 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side — dubbed Hotel Indigo — has begun to reveal its brick façade, with the hotel portion “scheduled to open in the spring of next year.” Interior construction is to imminently complete, and InterContinental Hotels “will go before Community Board 3 next week” for liquor permits.

70-35 113th Street [Times Ledger]: Vacant since 2008, the former six-story and 56,400 square-foot hospital building — at 70-35 113th Street, in Forest Hills — has been recently acquired by Auberge Grand Central Limited Liability Co. “with a $1 million bid during its foreclosure auction.” Plans for the building remain undisclosed, but previously visions called for a conversion to condominiums.

319 Schermerhorn Street [Curbed]: Developed by Sc Nevins LLC, and designed by Incorporated, new renderings have surfaced for the 20-story and 60-unit residential building planned for the vacant northeast corner of Schermerhorn and Nevins Streets — at 319 Schermerhorn — in Downtown Brooklyn; the façade is to be composed of “machine-made [red] brick.”

949 Pacific Street [Brownstoner]: A stalled five-story and four-unit building — at 949 Pacific Street — is now “on the market for $1.75 million,” hopefully to be bought and finished by another developer; the structure is currently up to the fourth floor, and is to eventually total 4,120 square feet. Ka.Va Design is the architect.

43-25 Hunter Street [The Court Square Blog]: Excavation is “in full swing” at Rockrose’s 50-story and 970,000 square-foot mixed-use building at 43-25 Hunter Street, in Long Island City; pile drivers and excavators can be seen on-site, and foundation work appears imminent.
