For nearly the past year since YIMBY first revealed renderings of SLCE Architects’ 115 East 55th Street, construction progress remained below street level and tucked behind construction fences and machinery for a while. Now a revisit to the Midtown East site shows that the 185-foot-tall residential project has quickly sprung up and is getting close to topping out. Developed by Zeckendorf Development, the ground-up 18-story, 62-unit, 71,961-square-foot edifice is situated directly adjacent to the back eastern elevation of Norman Foster’s 47-story, 660,000-square-foot 425 Park Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 23-story mixed-use building at 270 West 96th Street on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Located between West End Avenue and Broadway, the lot is one block north of the 96th Street subway station, serviced by the 1, 2, and 3 trains. Fetner Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications.
New details and renderings have been released for The Astor LIC, a six-story mixed-use development that will add 143 rental units to the market this year. Located at 36-20 Steinway Street in Long Island City, Queens, the ground-up new build is designed by SLCE Architects and developed by JMH Development and Mettle Property Group. Leasing is expected to begin next month for the residences, with Corcoran New Development as the exclusive marketing and leasing agent.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for Park Haven, a ten-story mixed-use building at 345 St. Ann’s Avenue in Mott Haven, The Bronx. The 180,155-square-foot development is designed by SLCE Architects and developed by The Community Builders and BronxWorks. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 178 units for residents at 30 to 80 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $14,915 to $112,800.
Construction is rising on 200 East 83rd Street, a 449-foot-tall residential tower from Robert A.M. Stern on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Developed by Naftali Group and Rockefeller Group, the 243,128-square-foot development reinforced concrete structure will rise to a height of 35 stories and house 86 units spread over 205,877 square feet, for an average of 2,393 square feet apiece. SLCE Architects is the architect of record for the project, which is located at the corner of Third Avenue and East 83rd Street.
