Woodside-based property owner Jakey Patwari, head of New Haven Co. of NY Inc., has filed applications for a six-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 1358 Odell Street, in the East Bronx’s Parkchester section. The structure will encompass 13,475 square feet. It will feature 2,229 square feet of commercial space and 2,191 square feet of community space across the cellar through second floors (likely for retail and medical offices), followed by seven residential units across the third through sixth floors. The units should average 807 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Ling Li’s Flushing-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,575-square-foot property is currently vacant. It’s located two blocks from the Castle Hill Avenue stop on the 6 train.
Related Companies is in contract to acquire, for an undisclosed amount, the assemblage of properties at 170 Eleventh Avenue, 548-552 West 23rd Street, and 555 West 22nd Street, in West Chelsea. The developer plans to build a 22-story, 140-unit mixed-use building at the site, Curbed NY reported. New building permits have not yet been filed with the Buildings Department, although early estimates put the size of the project at 288,000 square feet. It’s unclear what the other building use will be, although both commercial and community facility space are allowed by zoning. If all four existing buildings, which range from one- to three-story commercial structures, are razed, the site would be able to accommodate a maximum 291,324 square feet of mixed-use development as-of-right. An additional 70,000 square feet of air rights are being acquired and transferred to the site, probably to increase the amount of residential space that can be built. As the assemblage spans across different zoning district, the Department of City Planning must approve the air rights transfer.
Most development on the Northside of Williamsburg consists of glassy new buildings, but every once in a while, someone converts a pre-war structure instead of tearing it down. Today, YIMBY has a look at 119-123 Kent Avenue, where three century-old townhouses will expand and get a new, brick facade that stretches across all of them.
Central Harlem is soon going to have one fewer vacant lot. Developer Rafael Santandreu hopes to build a nine-story, mixed-use building at the corner of 135th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue, next to the 135th Street stop on the B and C trains.
The 90-story, 1,296-foot-tall office tower known as 30 Hudson Yards, located on the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 33rd Street, is now roughly 15 floors above street level, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by ILNY. The one-million-square-foot retail component, dubbed The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards and located between 30 Hudson Yards and the completed 52-story office tower 10 Hudson Yards, is also now topped out and receiving its façade. 30 Hudson Yards will measure 2.6-million square feet and has already been fully committed. Time Warner Inc. (and its affiliates) will occupy 1.5-million square feet, Wells Fargo Securities will occupy 500,000 square feet, KKR will occupy 343,000 square feet, and Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group (the developer of Hudson Yards) are also taking space in the building.
