Among New York’s current major developers, Extell has perhaps the most notable portfolio when it comes to sheer height. Though Central Park Tower may become the tallest building in Manhattan by roof and Brooklyn Point will do the same for that borough, the firm’s penchant for prominence is best visualized through One Manhattan Square, aka OMS, which sticks out of its underbuilt neighborhood fabric like the Lower East Side’s own version of the Eiffel Tower. The skyscraper topped-out in September of 2017, but installation of the façade only wrapped this month. Last week, YIMBY took a tour of the building’s penthouse residences and sales gallery, and today we have a look at its almost-finished exterior, as well as an update on the ever-changing views from the top.
Located at 1640 Flatbush Avenue, plans for a new 145-foot-tall and 13-story mixed-use building to be designed by S9 Architecture and developed by SL Green Realty Corporation are now heading to the city for approval. Just a short walk from Brooklyn College, the new structure would have 115,056 square feet of new space, with 114 residential units. About thirty percent will be affordable, totaling 34, and the remaining 80 will let for market rates. Retail opportunity will be on the first two floors taking nearly 30,000 square feet.
A new proposal from AVO Construction has revealed an 11-story mixed-use structure that could rise from a two-lot assemblage at 1010 Pacific Street, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building would contain a mix of affordable and market rate residences, a commercial component, and a non-profit community arts center that would provide arts-based programming to local residents.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 83-12 Broadway in Elmhurst, Queens. The site is three blocks from the Elmhurst Avenue subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Howard C. Haider Jr., trustee of the Haider Family Trust, will be responsible for the development.
Construction is making quick headway on a seven-story mixed-use building in Bushwick, Brooklyn, following permit applications filed in September of 2017, as first reported by YIMBY. Located at 1595 Broadway, the structure is being designed by Diego B Aguilera Architects for local developer Bawbeh United, of Williamsburg.
