Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for TF Cornerstone’s planned 25-story, 714-unit mixed-use building at 300 Livingston Street (a.k.a. 33 Bond Street), in Downtown Brooklyn. Now, Commercial Observer has the latest details on the 734,312-square-foot project. Since our last report, the developer has secured $250 million in construction financing. The new building will also have a larger retail component than reported earlier. There will be 55,000 square feet of retail across the ground and cellar levels, and grocers and gyms are already in negotiations for the space. The residential units should average 790 square feet apiece, and 20 percent of them, or 143 apartments, will rent at below market-rates. Demolition of the site’s 49,942-square-foot five-story parking garage wrapped up in early 2015. Handel Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
Foundation work kicked off in February for the 27-story, 168-unit residential building underway at 27-19 44th Drive, in the Court Square section of the Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog reports the structure has since risen three stories above street level. The rapidly ascending 151,021-square-foot project, dubbed Watermark Court Square, will eventually host rental apartments ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. The residential units should average 730 square feet apiece and the ground-floor will feature 2,807 square feet of retail space. Amenities will include a rooftop terrace, a sky lounge, work lounges featuring meeting spaces, a garden, a café, and a fitness center. Twining Properties is the developer and Handel Architects is behind the design. Completion is currently expected in the summer of 2017.
Back in May of 2014, YIMBY reported on plans for a multi-building residential development on the block bound by West 52nd and 53rd streets and Tenth and Eleventh avenues, in Hell’s Kitchen. At the time, the 12-story, 96-unit affordable residential building at 535 West 52nd Street, dubbed The Park Clinton, was the only one completed. Then in May of 2015, the developers secured $200 million in construction financing for another phase of the project, which consists of a 24-story building at 526 West 53rd Street connected to a 16-story building at 525 West 52nd Street. That block-thru portion will encompass 392 additional residential units and is currently 15- and 14-stories above street level, respectively.
Back in April of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the two-tower, 428-unit residential development at 400 West 113th Street, located on the Cathedral of St. John the Divine campus, in Morningside Heights. The Handel Architects-designed 15-story buildings topped out late last year, and now Tectonic has photos (h/t Curbed NY) of the completed towers. Dubbed Enclave at the Cathedral, all of the units will be rental apartments and will have access to over 10,000 square feet of amenity space. Amenities include landscaped outdoor decks and rooftop terraces, a 2,000-square-foot gym, an art gallery, and recreational/entertainment rooms. The Brodsky Organization is the developer and occupancy began on March 7.
Related Companies’ luxury rental development at 205 East 92nd Street, in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Carnegie Hill, is set for occupancy in May. Now, we have a new renderings, both exterior and interior, of the coming development, now dubbed The Easton. If the address sounds familiar, the building used to be known as the Henley.
