During the summer of 2015, renderings were revealed of Lalezarian Properties’ planned 35-story, 220-unit mixed-use tower under construction at 323 Tenth Avenue, between West 28th and 29th streets in West Chelsea. At the time, the ground floor of the tower was being constructed, and the developer’s two other 13-story buildings at 507 West 28th Street – with a combined additional 155 residential units – were close to topping out. Today, the larger structure is 25 stories above street level and the smaller 13-story components are nearly fully clad in glass. The photos are courtesy of Tectonic (h/t Curbed). The entire project will encompass 337,978 square feet, and rental units will average 779 square feet across all three buildings. There will also be a total 16,068 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Avinash K. Malhotra Architects is the design architect and completion is expected later this year.

In April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the eight-story, 32-unit mixed-use project at 1770 Madison Avenue, in East Harlem on the corner of East 116th Street. Later the same year, the building topped out, and today the structure is fully clad and wrapping up construction, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The building measures 47,857 square feet in its entirety, and includes 5,124 square feet of retail on the ground and cellar levels, 6,310 square feet of medial offices on the second floor, and 25,241 square feet of residential space. The units will average 789 square feet apiece, and seven of them will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Low Income Marketing Group is developing and Avinash K. Malhotra Architects is the architect of record. Opening is probable within the next few weeks.
