In February of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings for the planned seven-story, 11-unit residential building at 204 Forsyth Street, on the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie now reports the 24,960-square-foot project has topped out. The structure’s residential units will be condominiums and should average a spacious 1,779 square feet apiece. The units will come in two- and three-bedroom configurations, and amenities include a parking garage on the ground floor and bicycle storage and recreational space in the cellar. Charlie Saulson is the developer and Z Architecture is behind the design. Completion is expected later this year.
Seewell Realty, based in Scarsdale, N.Y., has filed applications for a seven-story, 15,624 square-foot medical office building at 63 Audubon Avenue, between West 168th and 169th streets in Washington Heights. The offices, in the form of community facility space, will total 11,854 square feet in the building. It’s not known how many separate medical groups are expected to operate in the new structure, although the cellar level through the seventh floor will contain offices. Alexander Zhitnik, head of Chinatown-based Z Architecture, is designing the building. Demolition permits were filed back in 2014 to raze the existing three-story, two-unit wood-frame townhouse.
Just before New Year’s, Foster Equities filed applications for a six-story, 28-unit residential building at 322 Gates Avenue, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, located six blocks south of the Bedford – Nostrand Avs. stop on the G train. According to DNAinfo, the building will measure 22,272 square feet in total and will include a 991 square-foot retail portion on the ground floor. The residential units, which will be rentals, will begin on the second floor and average 760 square feet apiece. Z Architecture is designing the project. The single-story Bedford Beer & Soda Dist. building, acquired for $4.5 million last March, was approved for demolition in the fall.
Back in April of this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 38-unit mixed-use building at 1930 Bedford Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and now an on-site sketch of the project has been posted, courtesy of photographer Tectonic. It will measure 38,236 square feet in total and will include 7,441 square feet of health care offices on the ground and second floors. Residential units begin on the third floor and should average 810 square feet apiece. Though two two wood-framed structures were demolished over the summer, construction has yet to begin. Nik Lavrinoff is developing and Z Architecture is designing.
West 39th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues in the Garment District already has four hotels, with another two in the works. But one builder has decided to buck the trend by filing applications for a residential development on the block, at 355 West 39th Street.
