Permits Filed For Lightstone’s 18-Story Residential Building At 40 East End Avenue, Yorkville

Back in June, YIMBY reported on the Lightstone Group’s acquisition of the six-story building at 40 East End Avenue, at East 81st Street in Yorkville. Permits were filed at the end of October with a support of excavation filing on Friday, and now new details can be reported. The plan is still demolition of the existing building in favor of an 18-story building, rising to 210 feet. The plan reported in June called for 30 condominium units, but the filing shows 29 units.

51-Story, 68-Unit Residential Tower At 5 Beekman Street Close To Topping Out, Financial District

Back in June, YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 51-story, 68-unit residential tower at 5 Beekman Street/115 Nassau Street, in the Financial District. In the summer, the building was a few floors from topping out, and now, per Curbed, the building has topped out with exception of the metal ornamental turrets. The Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel-designed tower rises from the 10-story Temple Court building, which is also being converted into a 287-key hotel. GFI Capital and GB Lodging are developing, and completion is expected next year on both components of the project.

New Renderings for 118 Fulton Street, 49-Story Residential Tower Coming to the Financial District

Late last year, YIMBY posted a video featuring renderings of plans for a new 63-story residential tower at 118 Fulton Street. The design featured in the film was originally created for the Lightstone Group, which sold off 112-118 Fulton Street to Carmel Partners last September for $171 million. But while the site’s developer has changed, its appearance has seemingly stayed the same, and a new on-site rendering confirms that a design similar to the one previously posted will be built.
