The 12-story Standish Hotel in Brooklyn Heights is getting a makeover, and YIMBY has a rendering of the revamped property at 169-171 Columbia Heights.
Innovative design-build firm DDG picked up an art gallery in Chelsea for $24.25 million back in 2014, and now they’ve filed plans to build condos on the property near the High Line.
In October of 2015, YIMBY brought you renderings of the 10-story, 21-unit residential building under development at 325 West Broadway, in SoHo. Now, new photos from our friend Tectonic show that construction on the property is done. Dubbed XOCO 325, the 55,962-square-foot structure’s condominium units range from 1,055-square-foot one-bedrooms to 2,658-square-foot four-bedrooms. Amenities include a 24-hour concierge, a fitness center, private residential storage, bicycle storage, and a rooftop terrace. DDG is both the developer and design architect, although Thomas O’Hara’s HTO Architect is the architect of record. Occupancy has already begun. The property is located within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District.
DDG and Westbrook Partners plan to convert the former Standish Hotel building at 169 Columbia Heights, in Brooklyn Heights, into condominium units, according to Crain’s. The team acquired the property from Taurus Investment Holdings for $60 million in the summer of 2015. Taurus had converted the 12-story building into 112 rental apartments last decade. It’s currently dubbed The Standish. It was not disclosed if the number of units will change after the conversion.
Construction is nearly complete at 325 West Broadway in Soho, where a ten-story condo building has replaced part of a brick chocolate factory. Developer and design firm DDG has just launched sales, and they’ve sent along a few new renderings of the project, which was christened Xoco 325 in June.
