New renderings have been exclusively revealed to YIMBY for the transformation of 165 Mercer Street, in SoHo. The historic building was constructed between 1870 and 1871 under design by Henry Fernbach, and faithfully served the city as a parking garage since 1921. However, as we reported in September of 2016, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved changes for the site to undergo a conversion to office and retail use, which will be accompanied by a new penthouse level, as well.
Permits have been filed for a 10-story mixed-use building at 219 Hudson Street, in SoHo. The site is two blocks away from two Canal Street Subway Stations, serviced collectively by the A, C, E, 1 and 2 trains. YIMBY last reported on the site in October 2015, when Joel Braver of Express Builders JB purchased the site for $13.2 million. The firm has retained ownership and will be responsible for development.
After our first look at Morris Adjmi’s submission to the Landmark Preservation Commission for 419 Broadway back in October, the SoHo building has been approved following a redesign. The accepted proposal has seen a height reduction, as well as a change to the bulkhead.
Construction is moving swiftly at 570 Broome Street, and the 25-story high-rise has officially topped-out. YIMBY last reported on the site a month and a half ago when renderings of interiors and the lobby were revealed. The site is rising in Hudson Square, which is rapidly filling with new residential developments following a comprehensive rezoning passed earlier this decade.
Last week, YIMBY featured an update on 606 Broadway, on West Houston Street. A few blocks east, an even larger building is rising on a slightly less irregularly-shaped lot, at 300 Lafayette Street, for which we have the latest images courtesy of Tectonic.
