Gotham Organization’s contentious new development at 130 St. Felix Street in Downtown Brooklyn is now under review by the Department of City Planning as part of the New York’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. Known simply as ULURP, the procedure is required for projects that require special review or modifications to existing zoning regulations.
Façade work is progressing on the topped-out superstructure of “Parcel G,” a 34-story tower in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the building will yield 443 residential units, of which a portion will be dedicated to affordable housing, as well as a lower-level community facility for Flux Factory and for kayak rentals. The site is located by the intersection of 2nd Street and 56th Avenue.
Construction is rising rapidly on “Parcel F,” a 58-story residential skyscraper in Hunters Point South, Queens. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the structure will yield 689 residential units alongside Parcel G, its 34-story, 443-unit sibling. A low-rise grade school building will be located in the middle of the complex, which is situated on the southern tip of the Hunters Point peninsula at the confluence of the East River and Newton Creek. Parcel F is bound by Center Boulevard to the north, 56th Avenue to the east, 57th Avenue to the west, and is rising above Hunters Point South Park Extension.
Façade work is nearing completion on 460 West 41st Street, a 164-foot-tall mixed-use building in Midtown West. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Covenant House, the structure will become the first supportive housing development by Covenant House in nearly 50 years, with help from for-profit entities Gotham Organization and Denham Wolf Real Estate Services. The 80,290-square-foot property is located between Eighth and Ninth Avenues and will yield 60 residential units averaging approximately 884 square feet, as well as a 53,053-square-foot community facility. The project is expected to cost $128 million.
Excavation has begun at 55 Suffolk Street and 64 Norfolk Street, the site of Broome Street Development, a mixed-use complex on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Dattner Architects and developed by Gotham Organization, the project encompasses two buildings spanning a combined 387,223 square feet that will yield 488 rental units, of which 43 percent will be dedicated to permanently affordable homes. Both buildings will rise by the intersection of Broome and Norfolk Streets.
