YIMBY initially reported on 350 West 71st Street, on the Upper West Side, when plans were filed in 2016. Now, we have the first glimpse of the final product. DNA Development is responsible for the project which is converting and combining two properties, one of which is a landmarked single-room-occupancy hotel, into far more spacious condominiums.
Just South of Union Square, on Broadway between East 12th and East 13th Streets, there are two Italianate-inspired buildings from 1866 and 1867, at 827-831 Broadway. Back in 2015, the sites had been purchased for $60 million by the real estate investors Samson Klugman of Quality Capital, and Leo Tsimmer of Caerus Group. They had initially filed permits for a 300-foot-tall commercial space, but that was stopped when the Landmarks Preservation Commission awarded landmark status for the 150-year old construction.
Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy doesn’t always see the best executions of infill development, but new filings for 375 Stuyvesant Avenue will hopefully provide an example for others to follow. DXA Studio applied for the permits, indicating the new building should be both innovative and attractive, and Oren Evenhar of Pinestone Greene LLC is listed as the developer. The structure will rise five floors and have 7,386 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst seven units. With a design-minded architect and an average unit size of over 1,000 square feet, condominiums would appear likely. An existing building on the site is landmarked, though there appears to be ample room to accommodate the new structure, which has yet to be reviewed by the LPC.
Back in June, Cayuga Capital Management filed new building applications for 16 Berry Street, along the Williamsburg waterfront in Brooklyn. Today, YIMBY has the reveal for the project, which is being designed by DXA Studio and will hold over 60,000 square feet of space.
Last October, YIMBY reported on new building applications for a small site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, at 115 Broadway. Despite its size, the narrow lot is bound by South 6th Street and Bedford Avenue, making it very visually prominent, and today we have the reveal for its eventual occupant, which will certainly be eye-catching.
