Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 4261 Park Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. Now, the COOKFOX-designed project, dubbed Park House, is ready to open with an official address of 4275 Park Avenue.
On the northern edge of the Financial District, construction is making major headway on the site comprising 23 Park Row, which will imminently stand 54 floors and 701 feet to its rooftop. YIMBY reported on permits back in April of 2016, before posting the first renderings last June. The tower, designed by COOKFOX Architects, will become one of the more prominent residential buildings in the neighborhood, and foundation work at the site has now begun.
Back in January of 2015, YIMBY first reported on a proposal for a new development at 92-100 Vandam Street, in the “Hudson Square” neighborhood to the north of the Holland Tunnel. Since then, several major projects have begun construction in the vicinity, including 555-565 Broome Street. Now, YIMBY has confirmation that the original suspected design for 92-100 Vandam is indeed accurate, and is now moving forward through the planning process.
Last week, the City Council approved plans for Atlas Capital Group and Westbrook Partners to acquire $100 million worth of air rights from Pier 40, overseen by the Hudson River Park Trust, to develop a 1,586-unit mixed-use complex at 550 Washington Street, in Hudson Square. The project is set to include five towers, the New York Times reported, although their height was not disclosed. Thirty percent of the units, or 475 apartments, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. One of the residential towers will be geared towards “older tenants.” There would also be retail space and a 15,000-square-foot recreation center.
Only a portion of the former five-story commercial building’s steel skeleton remains at the site of a planned 11-story, 137,081-square-foot commercial building at 510 West 22nd Street, located along the High Line in West Chelsea. The steel beams will be incorporated into the new building, which means the project is technically an expansion. Excavation work is currently taking place elsewhere on the property, as seen in the latest from Tectonic.
