Silvercup Studios [Curbed]: Silvercup Studios may be back from the dead, and just as the developer has filed for a permit renewal extension, LEESER has revealed revised designs (created back in 2013) for the stalled 2.2 million square-foot mixed-use development, located on the waterfront in Long Island City.

531 6th Street [Brooklyn Daily Eagle]: A large number of three- and four-story townhouses are set to be demolished on the Park Slope block bound by 5th and 6th Street, and 7th and 8th Avenue; the properties are owned by the New York Methodist Hospital, and plans call for “a 486,000 square-foot building” that will stand 150 tall.

Farm Colony Redevelopment [Curbed]: The NYC Landmark Preservation Commission is reviewing a proposal — dubbed the Landmark Colony — that would completely redevelop the abandoned and crumbling Farm Colony in Staten Island, directly south of Manor Heights. The plan calls for “a sprawling senior community with 350 units of housing,” and V+B Architecture is designing, while NFC Associates is developing.

125 3rd Avenue [Brownstoner]: Massey Knakal is marketing a development site at 125 3rd Avenue — in Beorum Hill — for $6.5 million; the site has 15,757 square feet of development potential, and 19,631 square feet accounting for available neighboring air rights.

115 Delancey Street [Bowery Boogie]: Applications have been filed for another Essex Crossing building — this time at 115 Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side — where details specify a 26-story mixed-use building of 195 units and 134,770 square feet of commercial space; Handel is designing.

140 West 81st Street [Curbed]: The four-story religious structure at 140 West 81st Street, on the Upper West Side, is set to receive a residential addition after the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved plans proposed by Jordan Rogove, of DXA. The complete building will stand seven stories and have 10 units.
