In August of 2015, YIMBY revealed new renderings of the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use project planned at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street (a.k.a. 145-155 West Street), in Greenpoint, located five blocks from the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. Now the tower portion, at 10 Huron, is four stories above street level, while the foundation is complete where the six-story portion will go at 19 India, as seen in photos by NyConstructionPhoto. The entire complex will encompass 716,982 square feet. Across both buildings, there will be a total of 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in addition to a 3,802-square-foot medical office. The residential units should average 894 square feet apiece, of which 128 will be rented at below-market rates through the housing lottery.
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was wrapping up on the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use project under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea. Since then, construction plans have been amended to build a slightly larger building, which is now up to the fourth floor and rising, as seen in photos taken by Tectonic earlier this month. The latest permits indicate the 315,586-square-foot project will stand 33 stories, or 367 feet, above street level (393 feet if you count the bulkhead). There will be 13,219 square feet of retail space across the ground floor, followed by 179 residential units (up from 174) that should average 1,250 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.
Last summer, YIMBY revealed the first rendering of Related Companies’ planned 14-story, 46-unit residential project at 70 Vestry Street, in TriBeCa. Changes have since been made to the design, and Curbed NY was the first to publish an updated image of part of the exterior, which will be clad in French limestone. Robert A.M. Stern Architects is designing, with Ismael Leyva Architects serving as the architect of record, and Daniel Romualdez responsible for the interiors. Last September, the developer secured $200 million in construction loans, and completion of the 154,019 square-foot project is expected in early 2018.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed the initial design for a 10-story, 83-unit mixed-use building at 196 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side, but now Magnum Real Estate Group and Real Estate Equities Corporation have made changes to the project. The Real Deal reports an 11-story, 94-unit structure is now planned. Ismael Leyva remains the design architect, while Incorporated Architecture & Design is designing the interior. Units will be condominiums, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, and a 30,000 square-foot Equinox gym will be located on the ground and second floors. Over the last few months, demolition of the site’s low-rise predecessors has wrapped up, and excavation equipment has arrived. Completion is expected in the second half of 2017.
A year ago, Lalezarian Properties put a pair of four-story buildings on Charlton Street in Hudson Square on the market for $50 million. No one paid that hefty price, and now principal Kevin Lalezarian has decided to develop the site between Hudson and Greenwich Streets himself.
