A rendering has been revealed of the nine-story, 135-unit mixed-use building planned at 3003 West 21st Street (a.k.a. 2002 Surf Avenue), on Coney Island. Addition details have also emerged since new building applications were filed in April. The 118,743-square-foot structure will contain a mix of affordable and supportive housing, with 53 apartments to be rented at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, and 82 apartments to house homeless veterans. The units will all be one-bedrooms and should average 733 square feet apiece. There will also be 7,815 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Long Island-based Concern for Independent Living and Georgica Green Ventures are the developers. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect and completion is expected in 2018.

Excavation work is nearly complete and construction has started on the foundation of the planned 63-story, 124-unit mixed-use building at 138 East 50th Street, in Midtown East. The latest photo was captured by YIMBY Forums user ILNY/NY Construction Photography. The most recent building permits indicate the project will rise 803 feet above street level and measure 253,222 square feet. There will be 4,588 square feet of retail space across the cellar and ground floors. The residential units, condominiums, should average 1,706 square feet apiece. The number of units listed on permits, 124, is up quite a bit from what YIMBY reported a year ago, 91, when renderings were revealed. Ceruzzi Properties is the developer and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects is the design architect. SLCE Architects is the architect of record. Completion in 2018 is probable.

Reveal For Seven-Story, Five-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 3 East 3rd Street, East Village

Yesterday, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 3 East 3rd Street, located on the western end of the East Village. Real Estate Weekly managed to get their hands on a rendering of the project, which is to be developed by Brooklyn-based Barrett Design. Alex Barrett, the firm’s architect, is designing the project in-house. The project will include a 3,135-square-foot retail condo spanning three levels, including the ground floor. Above that, there will be four full-floor condominiums and a duplex penthouse. The developer has secured $6.9 million in financing for the acquisition of the site. A three-story commercial building must first be demolished.
