69 East 125th Street

Reveal For 12-Story, 75-Unit Rental Building Planned At 69 East 125th Street, East Harlem

Over the summer, a black-and-white rendering was posted at the site of the planned 12-story, 75-unit mixed-use building at 69 East 125th Street, in East Harlem, and now a higher resolution rendering has surfaced, per Real Estate Weekly. Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is designing the rental building, which will include 5,643 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Twenty percent of the residential units will be rented at below-market rates. The site’s predecessors were demolished this past August, and completion is expected in the spring of 2017. Greystone Property Development is behind the project.


196 Orchard Street

Reveal For Redesigned 11-Story, 94-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 196 Orchard Street, Lower East Side

Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed the initial design for a 10-story, 83-unit mixed-use building at 196 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side, but now Magnum Real Estate Group and Real Estate Equities Corporation have made changes to the project. The Real Deal reports an 11-story, 94-unit structure is now planned. Ismael Leyva remains the design architect, while Incorporated Architecture & Design is designing the interior. Units will be condominiums, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms, and a 30,000 square-foot Equinox gym will be located on the ground and second floors. Over the last few months, demolition of the site’s low-rise predecessors has wrapped up, and excavation equipment has arrived. Completion is expected in the second half of 2017.


280 Cadman Plaza West

36-Story, 139-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Planned At 280 Cadman Plaza West Passes ULURP, Brooklyn Heights

In early November, the City Planning Commission approved Hudson Companies’ planned 36-story, 139-unit mixed-use building at 280 Cadman Plaza West, in Brooklyn Heights, and now the City Council has approved the project. According to DNAinfo, Wednesday’s vote was practically the last step before the project gets green-lit. Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to sign the deal, which will conclude ULURP, the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure. The project overtakes the site of the Brooklyn Heights public library and 26,620 square feet on the ground floor will be dedicated to it. In addition, the Marvel Architects-designed tower will include 9,000 square feet of city-run academic labs and retail space. The property will be sold for $52 million.


349 Kent Avenue

Reveal For Six-Story, 10-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 349 Kent Avenue, Williamsburg

Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on filings for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 349 Kent Avenue, in western Williamsburg, located a block in from the East River. Brooklyn-based Workshop Design + Architecture has released renderings of the project, which will measure 15,300 square feet in total, although 8,723 square feet will count towards zoning. Two retail units will split 923 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor, and the residential units above will average 780 square feet apiece. Eugene Buchinger, operating as an anonymous LLC, is the developer. The site’s former two-story building was demolished earlier this year, and now that permits are approved, excavation is likely imminent.
