In March of 2015, YIMBY reported on filings for a 23-story, 108-unit mixed-use tower at 1399 Park Avenue, between East 103rd and 104th street in East Harlem. Initially, Heritage Real Estate Partners planned a rental building, but the project will now have 72 condominiums, according to The Real Deal. Since there will be 93,850 square feet of residential space, units will average 1,303 square feet apiece. The 134,000 square-foot development will also have 20,198 square feet of non-profit community facility space on the ground through fourth floors. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. The site’s two former dilapidated townhouses have since been demolished.
L+M Development Partners is moving forward with an unknown development at 23-32 Park Row, in the Financial District. Last week, YIMBY forumers posted that demolition permits have been approved to take down the four-story building at 23-27 Park Row, the five-story property at 29 Park Row, and the five-story structure at 31-32 Park Row. All the buildings were formerly used as commercial-retail space and demolition can commence as soon as the structures are prepped. The property assemblage consists of a 17,855 square-foot plot with just under 150 feet of street front on Park Row. The site can accommodate 267,825 square feet in development potential as-of-right, according to our calculations, and it could sprout an office or hotel building with retail space, or a mixed-use project with residential units.
Early last year, YIMBY brought you conceptual renderings of the possible supertall mixed-use tower that could rise at 42 Trinity Place, in the Financial District. Now the developer, Trinity Place Holdings, reached a deal with the city’s School Construction Authority (SCA) to build an elementary school in the base of the building, Tribeca Trib reports. The public school will boast 476 seats and a design is expected to be released of it this upcoming summer. In 2013, the city put forth $27.5 million in its budget to build a new school in the Financial District. The scope of the entire project has yet to be revealed, but it could potentially measure upwards of one million square feet and have retail, hotel, and residential components. Multiple buildings must first be demolished.
When we last checked in with 21 West End Avenue back in 2014, only a few stories of the 43-story tower had risen above street level. Now, Dermot Company is putting the finishing touches on the 529-foot-tall building between West 60th and 61st streets, and YIMBY reader Tectonic swung by for a construction update.
Over the summer summer, YIMBY partially revealed renderings for the planned 25-story, 115-unit residential building at 565 Broome Street (a.k.a 100 Varick Street), in Hudson Square. The developers have now secured a $320 million construction loan for the project, according to Crain’s, and Cindat (the U.S. branch of Beijing-based China Cinda Asset Management Co.) also acquired a $135 million stake in the project. The development team – SHVO, Bizzi & Partners Development, Halpern Real Estate Ventures, Aronov Development, and Itzhaki Acquisitions – recently acquired the two-story annex at 555 Broome for $9 million, completing the assemblage.
