YIMBY recently visited the newly-completed 43-story residential building dubbed Summit, at 222 East 44th Street, in the Midtown neighborhood of Turtle Bay. The tower was designed by Handel Architects and developed by BLDG Management. Leasing and marketing for the 429 residences, which range from studios to three-bedroom units, is being led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Escobar Design by Lemay is behind the interiors.
This month, BLDG Management officially began leasing at The Summit, a new rental property the developer has coined “a diamond in the sky.” Located at 222 East 44th Street, the 43-story building arrives as the first ground-up, residential building in Manhattan from BLDG.
Now that phase one of St. George’s Lighthouse Point project – a 12-story, 116-unit mixed-use building with residential units and commercial space at 35A Bay Street – is under construction and gaining attention, Triangle Equities is shifting focus on to the second phase. The developer has partnered with Starwood Hotel & Resorts for a 12-story, 175-key Westin hotel, which will be built adjacent and connected to one of four existing industrial buildings, the Wall Street Journal reported. The hotel, dubbed the Westin New York Staten Island, will encompass 190,000 square feet and will include 15,000 square feet of event space. Many of its luxury amenities and a restaurant will be located in the industrial building. The other three industrial buildings will be redeveloped into an additional 30,000 square feet of mixed-use commercial space. Perkins Eastman is designing and Andres Escobar is responsible for the interiors, although new building applications haven’t been filed for the hotel. Completion of the hotel is expected in 2019.
Construction has reached the 19th floor at 319 Schermerhorn Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, where a 21-story, 74-unit mixed-use building is being developed. The latest photos, posted to the YIMBY Forums, were taken by prolific photographer Tectonic. Dubbed the Nevins, it will eventually stand 210 feet above street level and encompass 90,181 square feet, per the latest building permits. There will be 5,100 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units, condominiums, will range from studios to three-bedrooms. A list of amenities were included in YIMBY’s January update. At that time, the project was seven stories tall. Adam America Real Estate and the Naveh Schuster Group are the developers. Issac & Stern Architects is the design architect. Andres Escobar & Associates is designing the interiors. Completion is expected in early 2017.
Since rising above street level in March of 2016, the 23-story, 120-unit mixed-use project under development at 56 Fulton Street, on the corner of Cliff Street in the Financial District, has grown to 10 stories. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo taken by Tectonic. The 128,540-square-foot tower will eventually host 5,865 square feet of ground-floor retail space and 120 rental apartments, ranging from 450-square-foot studios to 1,250-square-foot two-bedrooms. Twenty percent of them, or 24 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include storage for 61 bikes, a fitness center, laundry facilities, a lounge, a dining room for events, a game room, and an outdoor terrace on the 23rd floor. The Parkland Group and Socius Development Group are the developers. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the design architect, with Andrés Escobar designing the interiors. Completion can probably be expected in early 2017.
