A lot of progress has been made on 368 Third Avenue in Kips Bay since YIMBY’s last visit in mid-June, when excavation was still ongoing for the 35-story mixed-use residential tower. Today, the reinforced concrete structure is approaching the halfway mark and is gaining increasing prominence over the surrounding neighborhood. The 388-foot-tall, 145,000-square-foot structure is located between East 26th Street and East 27th Street and is being designed by SLCE Architects. Minrav Development purchased the site from Continental Ventures and Itzhaki Acquisitions for $64 million. The development will yield 100 apartments, averaging around 1,110 square feet apiece.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 1299 3rd Avenue, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The site is three blocks away from the 77th Street subway station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains, and four blocks away from the 72nd Street subway station, serviced by the Q train. Continental Ventures is responsible for the development.
Demolition permits have been filed for the existing structures at 1297 and 1299 3rd Avenue on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, between 74th and 75th Street. The site is three blocks away from the 77th Street subway station, serviced by the 4 and 6 trains, and four blocks away from the 72nd Street subway station, serviced by the Q trains. Continental Ventures is listed as responsible for the demolition.
A 34-story, mixed-use tower is coming to the corner of 27th Street and Third Avenue in Kips Bay, on the east side of Manhattan. New building applications filed yesterday reveal that the development will rise 388 feet into the air and fill most of the block between 26th and 27th streets.
When YIMBY last reported on the six-story, five-unit residential project at 52 Wooster Street, located at the corner of Broome Street in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, a teaser site had just been launched. Now, thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that much more has been accomplished.
