Construction is wrapping on a nine-story affordable housing project, named Excelsior II, at 120 West 169th Street, in The Bronx’s Highbridge. YIMBY covered the rendering reveal for this site in 2014, and the project is expected to be complete before the end of this month. Highbridge Community Development Corporation is responsible for the development, and the Briarwood Organization is handling general contracting.
Permits have been filed for a new four-story mixed-use building at 555 West 22nd Street, in Chelsea. Related Companies is responsible for the project. Last time YIMBY reported on this site, the developer was in the process of acquiring 555 West 22nd Street, as well as 548 and 552 West 23rd Street. This permit only specifies for the lot on 22nd street, so the predicted 22-story building might still be in the works.
Permits have been filed for Avery Hall Investment’s two-building development in Park Slope, Brooklyn. YIMBY last reported on the pre-filing for the six-story building at 680 Baltic Street in mid-October. Now, we also see specifics for the four-story 126 Fifth Avenue building. AHI is developing both buildings.
Avery Hall Investments has submitted pre-filing paperwork for a large mixed-use building five blocks away from Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center. The structure would be yet another modern addition to the rapidly developing neighborhood, and was originally known as 120 Fifth Avenue, though the DOB applications now list it at 680 Baltic Street.
Last week, YIMBY featured a terrible new hotel coming to 525 Eighth Avenue, off the northwest corner of 34th Street and Eighth Avenue. A few blocks to the north and west, on the southwest corner of Ninth Avenue and 42nd Street, another architectural atrocity is getting ready to open its doors, at 577 Ninth Avenue, and Tectonic has the latest photos of progress.
