The White Plains Common Council recently approved the construction of a new 296-unit apartment complex near the city’s northwestern border. The complex is the latest project from BRP Companies, a Manhattan-based developer, and will occupy a 2.44-acre lot assemblage.
Permits have been filed for a 26-story mixed-use building at 69 Adams Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Located between Front and York Streets, the lot is one block from the York Street subway station, serviced by the F train. Rafael Rabinowitz under the Galaxy Developers LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Excavation and foundation work are underway at 600 West 125th Street, the site of a 34-story tower on Columbia University‘s Manhattanville campus. Designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop with CetraRuddy Architecture as the executive architect and developed by the Trustees of Columbia University, the 391-foot-tall building will yield 175,000 square feet with 141,565 square feet of community facility space, 5,000 square feet of commercial space, and 142 residences for graduate students and faculty members. The property was once home to a McDonald’s and is located at West 125th Street and Broadway, directly across from The Forum and Wallach Art Gallery, also designed by Renzo Piano. LERA is the structural engineer for the project.
The new glass curtain wall has begun installation on 660 Fifth Avenue, a 39-story commercial building in Midtown, Manhattan. Formerly addressed as 666 Fifth Avenue, the office tower is in the process of having its mid-century façade replaced with a modern envelope in a project designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and developed by Brookfield Properties. The 1.5-million-square-foot property is located between West 52nd and 53rd Streets.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 25-28 Broadway, a seven-story mixed-use building in Astoria, Queens.

Available on NYC Housing Connect are six units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $63,429 to $167,570.
