The city is finally moving forward with plans to rebuild two unstable 19th century buildings at 321 and 323 Canal Street in Soho, which have been in administrative limbo for more than two years.
On the block of MacDougal Street between Prince and Houston in Soho sits a lot that used to hold an historic house built in the 1820s. But with demolition and new building applications first filed back in 2013, construction appears to be getting underway, and YIMBY now has the reveal for the new structure replacing the old, which is being developed by Valyrian Capital and designed by KM Associates.
Back in 2013, YIMBY brought you news of the six-story, five-unit condominium building planned at 52 Wooster Street, in SoHo, and then in mid-2014, we posted an update noting steel-frame construction was underway. Now, a tipster has sent along a better rendering of the project, as well as the link to its teaser site.
Two years ago, the Landmarks Preservation Commission greenlighted an innovative design to convert a Tootsie Roll factory to condos at 325 West Broadway in Soho. Now we have a new rendering of the aluminum and glass-clad project, dubbed XOCO 325 after the Catalan word for chocolate.
Back in March, YIMBY posted the first glimpse at the new condominium building coming to 555 Broome Street, in Hudson Square. Renzo Piano was recently revealed to be designing the project, formerly known as 100 Varick Street, which Bizzi & Partners, Itzhaki Aquisitions, and Michael Shvo are developing, and permits went up two weeks ago. Now, YIMBY has a new rendering of the building, giving a much better idea as to its ultimate appearance.
