DDG and Westbrook Partners plan to convert the former Standish Hotel building at 169 Columbia Heights, in Brooklyn Heights, into condominium units, according to Crain’s. The team acquired the property from Taurus Investment Holdings for $60 million in the summer of 2015. Taurus had converted the 12-story building into 112 rental apartments last decade. It’s currently dubbed The Standish. It was not disclosed if the number of units will change after the conversion.
Construction is nearly complete at 325 West Broadway in Soho, where a ten-story condo building has replaced part of a brick chocolate factory. Developer and design firm DDG has just launched sales, and they’ve sent along a few new renderings of the project, which was christened Xoco 325 in June.
Over the summer, Tribeca-based DDG broke ground on a 32-story tower at 180 East 88th Street, which will one day by the tallest building above 72nd Street, standing 521 feet to its pinnacle. Now, YIMBY has the first look at what the view from the upper reaches of the tower will entail. The building’s 48 condominiums will feature two-, three- and four-bedroom configurations, and a penthouse duplex will be located on the top two floors. Commercial space will also span 52,000 square feet in the base. HTO Architect is the architect of record, while DDG is designing in-house, and sales are expected to launch this fall.
Back in February, Tribeca Citizen posted the first images for DDG’s new condo project coming to 12 Warren Street, in Tribeca. Since then, construction has made major headway, a teaser site has gone live, and now a tipster has sent along a new exterior of the building, as well as the first interior.
Tribeca-based developer DDG has just started construction on 180 East 88th Street, set to become the tallest tower above 72nd Street, when it tops out at 521 feet.
