Permits have been pre-filed for a 14-story hotel at 186 Remsen Street in the Brooklyn Heights historic district of Brooklyn. Saint Louis-based HOK, the largest architecture firm in the US, will be responsible for the design. Located right across from Brooklyn Borough Hall, the site will have access to a plethora of transit options. Within just three to four blocks, guests can find the A, C, F, N, Q, R, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains.
Permits have been approved for the enlargement of 60 Charlton Street, which will yield a 12-story retail and office building in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The building was formerly known as 163 Varick Street. Kenneth Aschendorf of APF Properties is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $65 million in July 2017.
On the Upper East Side of Manhattan, at the intersection of 86th St and Lexington Avenue, construction on the 21-story residential tower at 151 East 86th Street is making major headway. Designed by HOK Architects and developed by Kuafu Properties, Stillman Development, and Ceruzzi Properties, the project will offer 61 condominiums ranging from two- to five-bedrooms.
An enormous new healthcare center has opened its doors on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The 740,000 square foot structure is located between 68th and 69th Street, on York Avenue, and is the latest addition to the New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center campus. Three different design firms, HOK, Ballinger, and Pei Cobb Freed & Partners worked in collaboration for the project.
Back in 2015, YIMBY revealed the renderings for a new development coming to the corner of 86th Street and Lexington Avenue, with an official address of 147 East 86th Street. In February of 2016, building applications were filed for the site, and now, demolition is complete on the old Petco, paving the way for construction to begin on the project.
