The transition zone between East Harlem and the Upper East Side is booming with new developments, and just last week, YIMBY featured an update on 1399 Park Avenue, on the corner of East 104th Street, which is close to topping-out. Today, we have another update by Tectonic on 302 East 96th Street, several blocks to the southeast, where superstructure work is also close to completion.
North Williamsburg’s industrial zone has become a forest of high-end hotels, from the Wythe Hotel, a converted, turn-of-the-century factory, to the futuristic William Vale, which opened in September. Now YIMBY has a rendering of a hotel headed to 105 North 13th Street, between Wythe and Berry Streets near McCarren Park.
The state Attorney General banned Shiraz Sanjana from selling condominiums for 16 months in 2014, but that didn’t stop the embattled developer from buying a development site at 695 6th Avenue in Greenwood Heights once the ban expired. Today, YIMBY has a look at the three-story apartment building rising at the corner of 21st Street.
Over the last three years, the parking lot at 114 Mulberry Street has become the centerpiece of the Little Italy Street Art Project, a collection of murals and installations that stretches along Mulberry from Canal to Broome streets. Now, like seemingly every other vacant property in lower Manhattan, it will soon be filled with apartments.
Another one of Bushwick’s empty lots is becoming a new apartment building. YIMBY has the first look at the project at 16 Charles Place, a dead-end block off Myrtle Avenue that’s covered in murals.
