The lobby at 1345 Avenue of Americas has been renovated, and today, YIMBY has an exclusive first look inside the space. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill were commissioned by Fisher Brothers to redesign the interior. The owners wanted to replace the original white and tan marble with a brighter, more spacious lobby, and the photos indicate that the architects have accomplished exactly that.
When we last checked in on 587 Main Street in New Rochelle, New York, it was barely noticeable on the skyline, rising just six flights up. Now, thanks to photos by Nick Ramacciato, we can see that the structure has made substantial progress. Work is currently up to the 20th floor, out of a total 28. Façade installation has not yet started, though the angled shape of the building is easily visible. Paulus, Sokolowski, and Sartor (PS&S) are responsible for the architecture, and a fresh rendering also gives a better view of what the top floors will soon look like.
A new rendering is out for 62 and 66 North Third Street, two six-story mixed-use buildings in Brooklyn’s flourishing Williamsburg neighborhood. The nearest subway access is the L train’s first stop in Brooklyn, the Bedford Station. The site is just a block away from the river, five blocks south of the State of New York East River Park, and five blocks north of the Domino Sugar Factory development, where a ferry station may soon be built. David Dweck, Steven Ancona, and Michael Marino have joined together for the development.
A new seven-story residential building is starting to rise above its townhouse neighbors on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. 150 Rivington Street is located in a quiet spot of the bustling neighborhood, three blocks away from the Delancey-Essex Street Subway Station, serviced by the F, J, M, and Z trains. Cogswell Lee Development will be responsible for the development, which replaces the old Streitz Matzo Factory.
Eastern Consolidated has secured a $121.35 million debt and equity package for 140 West 28th Street, a 45-story, 526-key hotel set to rise in Chelsea. The deal is comprised of two sources, which are $97.5 million for the mortgage with Bank of the Ozarks, and $23.85 million for mezzanine construction by Square Mile Capital Management.
