Back in August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for the six-story, 29-unit mixed-use building at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill. Now, Curbed NY has updated details on the project, as well as the first partial renderings revealing the structure’s exterior. The 114,812-square-foot building, dubbed the Hendrik, will actually feature 33 residential units, averaging 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums, ranging from two- to four-bedroom configurations. Per the Schedule A, amenities will include a fitness center and a 12,725-square-foot parking garage in the sub-cellar. There will also be 16,293 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. Hope Street Capital and AEW Capital Management are the developers, with Beyer Blinder Belle behind the design. The site’s old Walgreens store was demolished in 2015 and completion of the new structure is expected in 2017.

It was back in December of 2014 that the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved (on its second attempt) the residential conversion of the former New York Life Insurance Company Building, later a city office building, at 346 Broadway, in TriBeCa. However, in just the past two weeks, two rulings have come down that will impact the plan from developers Peebles Corporation and Elad Group, being marketed using the alternate address 108 Leonard Street.
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was underway at Extell Development’s 30-story, 83-unit mixed-use building at 200 East 95th Street (a.k.a. 1681 Third Avenue), on the Upper East Side. YIMBY now has photos from Tectonic that show rebar rising from the construction site into the air. Work on the ground floor is currently underway on the 317,664-square-foot building, dubbed The Kent, which will include 13,225 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. There will be 83 condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms, in the 367-foot-tall tower. The residences should average over 3,000 square feet apiece, and amenities listed in the Schedule A include a gym, a pool & sauna, bike storage, residential lounges and playrooms, a “music room,” and an outdoor terrace on the second floor. Beyer Blinder Belle is designing the project. Completion is expected in 2017.
Back in June of 2014, Starwood Capital Group and Naftali Group filed applications to convert the 13-story, 145-unit rental building at 275 West 10th Street, in the West Village, into 38 condominium units. Now, the developers have secured a $65.9 million loan for the project, dubbed the Shephard, according to The Real Deal. The property sits within the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension, so any exterior alterations to the structure would have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. As filed, the building will see its residential space reduced from 139,547 to 136,948 square feet. The condominium units will average a very spacious 3,604 square feet apiece, some of which include penthouse and duplex units. Amenities include a library, a spa, a recreation room, and a fitness center. Beyer Blinder Belle is the design architect and Gachot Studios is the interior designer. The conversion is expected to be complete in 2017.
Last month, Savanna paid $96 million for air rights and a piece of the Jewish Theological Seminary at 3080 Broadway, in Morningside Heights between West 122nd and 123rd streets. The developer has since secured $34.6 million to finance the acquisition, Commercial Observer reports. The Seminary will use the funds to renovate its campus, to build a performing arts center, and to build a new dormitory with an expansive library. Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects will be designing the Seminary’s half of the project. As for Savanna’s piece of the project, a low-rise piece of the Seminary on West 122nd Street will be demolished and replaced by a 250,000-square-foot residential tower, to be designed by Beyer Blinder Belle. No targeted completion dates have been disclosed.
