The condo-fication of 14th Street continues with 209 West 14th Street, where a four-story building has just been demolished to make way for eleven stories of apartments. A YIMBY reader sent along photos of a new rendering posted on the construction fence between Seventh and Eighth Avenues last week.

With the first of Related’s Hudson Yards towers now inching towards its pinnacle, it should come as no surprise that other developers with nearby sites are also beginning to move ahead with plans of their own. Kuafu Properties and Siras Development are building a 700-foot tall 42-story mixed-use tower at 470 Eleventh Avenue, between 37th and 38th Streets, and YIMBY has a fresh set of close-up renderings that also show some slight modifications to the “lantern-inspired” design.
Last December, foundation work started at 265 State Street, in Boerum Hill, where Flank and the Carlyle Group are developing a 20-story, 128-unit mixed-use building. Brownstoner now reports the building is up two stories above street level, and YIMBY has word that almost 80% of the structure’s units are in contract. Dubbed The Boerum, a hotel will occupy the first six floors, and retail is expected on the ground level. Flank is the design architect (as the firm designs and develops its own projects in-house), and Goldstein Hill & West is serving as the architect of record. Completion is slated for 2016.
The Naftali Group’s 20-story luxury condominium project at 234 East 23rd Street, in Gramercy, has risen quickly since construction began last year. The new building consists of 57 units, and now YIMBY has fresh renderings of the penthouse.
In January, the foundation was being poured at 333 Schermerhorn Street, the site of Steiner Studios’ 53-story, 581-unit mixed-use tower in Downtown Brooklyn; Brownstoner has the latest update, and it appears the tower portion is now rising and is already a few floors above the base podium. Dattner Architects and Goldstein Hill & West Architects are designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
