20 West 40th Street [Curbed]: Massing diagrams have been posted on-site at 12-20 West 40th Street — in Midtown — where Ziel Feldman has filed plans for a 32-story mixed-use building (split between 274 hotel rooms and 61 residences); excavation is currently underway.

20 East End Avenue [New York Times]: Renderings have been released of the planned 17-story and 43-unit residential building set to go up at 20 East End Avenue, on the Upper East Side; excavation is currently underway, and the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building is “scheduled for completion the summer of 2016.”

Astoria Cove [Crain’s New York]: Alma Realty received approval from the City Planning Commission on Monday for their planned five-building and 1,723-unit mixed-use development located on 26th Avenue — dubbed Astoria Cove —  near Hallets Point, in Astoria; 20% of the units will be promised as affordable.

36 West 47th Street [The Real Deal]: Massey Knakal Realty is marketing the 16-story and nearly 98,000 square-foot office and retail building — spanning 36-42 West 47th Street, in Midtown — as a redevelopment site; “the property has a number of leases set to expire,” and “allows for more than 96,000 square feet of development.”

81 Fleet Place [Brownstoner]: The façade has almost reached the top of the 15-story and 205-unit rental building at 81 Fleet Place, in Downtown Brooklyn; completion is expected “in the first quarter of next year,” and Dattner served as the architect.

460 Brielle Avenue [Crain’s New York]: The city is reviewing a redevelopment proposal that would revitalize the former Staten Island Seaview Hospital — located on a 100-acre campus at 460 Brielle Avenue — into a Health & Wellness Center. The plans include renovating existing landmarked buildings and constructing new healthcare facilities.

200 East 11th Street [EV Grieve]: A 12-story and 55-unit mixed-use building — located at 200 East 11th Street, in the East Village — has completed “a top-to-bottom renovation” and now wears an entirely new façade; Benchmark Real Estate Group acquired the building last year for $57 million.

21 Powers Street [The Real Deal]: Slate Property has acquired two single-story warehouse structures at 21 Powers Street — in Williamsburg — for $21 million; the developer plans to construct a five-story and 10-unit residential building.

81 East 125th Street [Harlem+Bespoke]: Scaffolding has been erected around the recently topped out seven-story Corn Exchange Building — at 81 East 125th Street, in East Harlem — ahead of the installation of a fresh brick façade.

313 Vanderbilt Avenue [Brownstoner]: Massey Knakal is marketing a three-parcel development site — spanning 313-317 Vanderbilt Avenue, in Clinton Hill — for $6 million; 10,532 square feet of development potential exists, and an existing two-story structure would likely be demolished.

781 Metropolitan Avenue [Gothamist]: The single-story fast-food restaurant at 781 Metropolitan Avenue — in Williamsburg — has shuttered to make way for impending demolition. The site sold for $6.72 million last year, and “condos appear destined for the space.”
