Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected Jonathan Rose Companies and L+M Development Partners to develop a multi-building, affordable mixed-use project at 1691 Madison Avenue, located on most of the block bound by Park and Madison avenues and East 111th and 112th streets in East Harlem.
A year and a half ago, YIMBY wrote about a pair of affordable rental buildings headed for the rent-stabilized Lafayette Boynton complex in the Soundview section of the South Bronx. Now, Nelson Management Group and L+M Development are breaking ground on the two towers at 1520 and 1530 Story Avenue.
After a crane collapse last February killed a pedestrian in TriBeCa, Mayor Bill de Blasio formed a working group to study the city’s crane regulations. In June, the panel released its recommendations. Today, the City Council took the next step by holding a hearing on a large package of proposed crane and work site safety legislation, including bills unrelated to crane safety that tighten training and worksite requirements.
Steel beams and the concrete core are now a couple stories above street level on the 25-story, 195-unit mixed-use project under development at 115 Delancey Street, located between Essex and Norfolk streets on the Lower East Side. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the new building will encompass 489,688 square feet and rise 315 feet to the top of its parapet.
Last month, the City Council approved a rezoning application for a 400-unit affordable development at 1465 Park Avenue in East Harlem. Now Tahl Propp Equities and L+M Development have filed plans for the 15-story project between 107th and 108th Streets.
