Back at the end of 2014, YIMBY reported on the first permits for Ceruzzi Properties’ new tower at 520 Fifth Avenue, on the corner of West 43rd Street. The building will rise 71 floors and 920 feet to its roof, with a design by Handel Architects that YIMBY can now reveal thanks to eagle-eyed Forum user YIM_Hudson.
Excavation work appears imminent at the site of the 51-story, 180-unit mixed-use tower under development at 15 East 30th Street, located on the corner of Madison Avenue in NoMad. Progress, which also includes apparent work on below-grade retaining walls, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower will encompass 361,785 square feet and rise 756 feet in height.
Renderings have been revealed of the two-towered, 1,350-unit mixed-use project planned at 260 South Street, on the Lower East Side. As currently proposed, the towers would stand 69 and 62 stories in height, rising 798 feet and 728 feet to their roofs, respectively. Twenty-five percent of the units would rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, the Lo-Down reported, and some senior housing will also be incorporated. Plans are still in place to expand the ground-floor retail footprint of the existing 26-story Section 8 residential buildings, called Lands End II, at 265 Cherry Street and 275 Cherry Street, which contain a total of 491 apartments. Renovations will be made to existing park spaces.
Construction has topped out and is quickly wrapping up on the six-story, 102-unit mixed-use building under development at 5 Blue Slip as part of the Greenpoint Landing mega-development, in northern Greenpoint. All of the building’s apartments will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery; applications for them have just launched.
Construction is now seven stories above street level on the 42-story, 429-unit mixed-use building under development at 212 East 44th Street (a.k.a. 222 East 44th Street), in Midtown East. The structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 361,354 square feet and rise 556 feet above street level.
