Innovative design-build firm DDG picked up an art gallery in Chelsea for $24.25 million back in 2014, and now they’ve filed plans to build condos on the property near the High Line.
In December of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 141-unit mixed-use building at 504 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, and then renderings were revealed of the project in 2015. Now, construction is underway on the second floor of the structure, according to the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The new building will measure 113,898 square feet, of which 20,023 square feet of space on the ground floor will be used for retail. Twenty-eight of the apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery, and building’s amenities include a 95-car parking garage in the cellar, a fitness center, and an outdoor terrace on the second floor. Silverstone Property Group and Madison Capital Realty are the developers, and HTO Architects is behind the design. Completion can probably be expected in 2017.
Near the end of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an eight-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 109 East 115th Street, in East Harlem, and now Curbed has the project’s reveal, in the form on an on-site rendering. Permits were approved earlier this year, and the project will measure 27,706 square feet in total, including a 5,392 square-foot community facility on the ground floor. Residential units will begin on the second floor and measure an average 700 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. ACNY Developers Inc. is developing and Midtown-based HTO Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in mid-2016.
Three years ago, the Tribeca Citizen spotted plans to convert the rundown industrial building at 28 North Moore Street into apartments. Now YIMBY has the first look at the revamped seven-story warehouse between Hudson and Varick Streets, courtesy of developer Valyrian Capital.
Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Ozymandius Realty and Orange Management’s planned eight-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 75 First Avenue in the East Village. Now, the long-time owners are selling the site to Colonnade Group. The site allows for an eight-story, 35,000 square foot building with retail, but it’s not known whether the new developer intends to follow the previously filed plans. The previous owners began assembling the site in 2005, when a 14-story building could have been built, before the city downzoned the East Village in 2008, according to The Real Deal. NO Architecture designed the old proposal.
