Construction at 533 Mercer Street, aka 289 Jordan, has risen above street level in the McGinley Square neighborhood of Jersey City. Located at the intersection of Mercer Street and Jordan Street, the 16-story mixed-use residential property will contain a total of 300 apartments. These will include 56 affordable housing units, 138 studios, 90 one-bedroom homes, 33 two-bedrooms, and six three-bedroom homes. The project is being designed by Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects and developed by Mercer Jordan LLC, an affiliate of New York-based company Sequoia Development Group, GRID Real Estate and Dresdner Robin.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 410 Warwick Street in East New York, Brooklyn. Located between Glenmore Avenue and Pitkin Avenue, the property is also addressed as 2337 Pitkin Avenue. The development is five blocks to the east of the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains. Concern for the Independent Living is listed as the owner behind the applications.
A new 13-story, 200-foot-tall office building with retail and for-profit exposition space has been proposed with zoning changes for 215 Moore Street, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. According to an Environmental Assessment Statement for the through-site, the development would contain 375,824 square feet of office space, 16,026 square feet of retail, 79,592 square feet of exposition space, and 249 parking spaces.
Construction is moving along smoothly on the Pendry Hotel, aka 4 Manhattan West. The reinforced concrete superstructure of the 21-story Midtown West development has risen past the halfway mark, and installation of its distinctive wavy façade has begun on the northern and western elevations. The mixed-use project, which is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, is slated to offer 164 guest rooms and a selection of condominiums on its upper floors.
Façade work is underway at 12 East 48th Street on what will become a 161-room Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel. Located in Midtown East between Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, the reinforced concrete superstructure has already topped out and the curtain wall on the northern elevation is beginning to rise above the ground floor. Designed by Handel Architects, the bright metallic frames that surround the building’s windows will form a subtly oscillating geometric pattern. Hidrock Realty is the developer of the project.
