In September of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 25-story mixed-use residential and retail building at 210 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, and now Benenson Capital Partners and Rose Associates are close to landing $158 million in construction loans for the project. The building will have 368 residential units, which is an increase from the 349 reported last year, and more than 14,000 square feet of retail space is planned. Handel Architects is designing, and a 175,000 square-foot office building was demolished to make way for the tower, per The Real Deal.
Cornell broke ground on its new tech campus on Roosevelt Island in June, and now a spokesperson for the project has sent along a few photos documenting its progress.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the two-towered, 15-story residential development at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, at 113th Street in Morningside Heights. Construction only began late last year on the 428-unit project, but structural construction and façade work are now complete, per Curbed. The buildings are being dubbed Enclave and Cathedral, and also go by the address of 400 West 113th Street. Brodsky Organization is the developer, Handel Architects is the architect, and completion is expected this fall.
In October 2014, YIMBY reported on the ground breaking of a 54-story, 538-unit residential tower in the heart of Jersey City’s Journal Square neighborhood. The building, the first within the larger Journal Squared project, now stands 19 stories tall, and is slated for completion in mid-2016, per The Jersey Journal. The other two towers will stand 60 and 70 stories, containing 600 and 700 additional residential units respectively. Kushner Real Estate Group is developing, while HWKN and Handel Architects are designing.
Permits were filed early last year for a 36-story, 372-unit residential building at 225 East 39th Street/222 East 40th Street, in Midtown East, and YIMBY later revealed renderings of the project that summer. Since then, a six-story garage was demolished, and now foundation work is underway, per Curbed. The rental units — 20 percent of which will be let at below market rates — will spread across 343,187 square feet of space, with units averaging 922 square feet apiece. Fisher Brothers is developing, and Handel Architects is designing, with completion expected in 2017.
