13-Story, 47-Unit Residential Project At 70 Vestry Street Lands Financing, Tribeca

Over the summer, YIMBY revealed renderings for Related Companies’ planned 13-story, 47-unit residential building at 70 Vestry Street (aka 264 West Street), in Tribeca, and now the developer has landed $200 million in construction loans, provided by Bank of America. The building will measure 154,019 square feet in total, and includes roughly 800 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Robert A.M. Stern is designing, while Ismael Leyva is serving as the architect of record. Demolition permits have already been approved to raze the site’s existing tenement and low-rise buildings.



Construction rendering for 10 Huron Street, or 145-155 West Street

New Look: 10 Huron Street, Greenpoint

Northern Greenpoint has construction on every corner, but the biggest new building headed to the formerly quaint waterfront neighborhood is a 39-story tower at 145-155 West Street, once home to the Huxley Envelope factory. Mack Real Estate and Palin Enterprises demolished the large single-story building in January, and now they’re driving piles for the planned 392-foot-tall high rise between Huron and India Streets on the East River. When YIMBY stopped by the site, we found this rendering tacked to the construction fence.

In the spring of 2014, YIMBY reported that excavation was underway at 286 Ashland Place in Fort Greene, where a 32-story, 384-unit mixed-use building is planned. Over a year later, the building is now two stories above street level and rising, according to Brownstoner. The building will have 77 units set aside as lottery-allocated housing, and will feature 21,000 and 45,000 square feet of retail and culture space, respectively. Two Trees Management is developing, while TEN Arquitectos is designing. Ismael Leyva is the architect of record, and completion is slated for the second half of 2016.
