11-19 Jane Street is an upcoming mixed-use residential and commercial project tightly nestled among the narrow streets of the West Village. The new 31,000 square foot structure will eventually rise six stories from a large rectangular plot of land that once held a two-story parking garage. It is being designed by London-based design firm David Chipperfield Architects, and developed by Edward Minskoff of Minksoff Equities. A total of seven residential units will be housed inside the building, averaging 2,382 square feet each.
Permits have been filed for a 24-story mixed-use tower at 224 East 135th Street in Mott Haven, The Bronx. The corner lot, also marked as 198 East 135th Street, is located between Major Deegan Expressway and the 3rd Avenue Bridge. Three blocks away is the 3rd Avenue-138 Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Cheskel Schwimmer of CGS Builders listed as the owner behind the applications. Cheskel previously filing permits in 2015 for a 25-story building with 465 apartment units.
A new mixed-use residential skyscraper is scheduled to rise at 260-270 West 126th Street in Central Harlem. Renderings have recently been released for the upcoming 385,000 square foot structure. Along with apartments, there will also be a church on the ground floor and a three-story theater. The Thomas Memorial Wesleyan Methodist Church partially occupies the property. The location of the proposed 42-story tower sits to the west of the famous Apollo Theater and has been used as a parking lot for a number of years. The dimensions of the site are about 125 feet long and 10 feet deep.
Construction will soon kick-off at 300 West 30th Street following approvals from the Department of Buildings. Designed by Studio C Architects, a new collection of renderings offer a first look at the property.
Yet another residential skyscraper is in the works at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and today YIMBY has an update on site progress. The main elevation of the existing three-story, low-rise building is now sitting behind construction netting and scaffolding, and it will soon be demolished to make way for the planned 40-story mixed-use replacement. Hill West Architects is the designer of the project, while David Schwarz of Slate Property Group will develop the structure. Office and retail space is reportedly going to be in the lower section of the 550-foot tall development.
