After a decade of delays, Triangle Equities finally landed financing and broke ground last month on Lighthouse Point, a sprawling mixed-use project next to the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island. Now, YIMBY has new images of the residential, retail, and office complex under construction on the North Shore.
This past December, the city launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the commercial development site at 2325 Third Avenue, in East Harlem. The plot is part of the mixed-use mega-development E125 that will turn two blocks, the ones bound by East 125th and 127th streets and Second and Third avenues, into roughly 1,000 residential units, up to 700,000 square feet of commercial space, and at least 30,000 square feet of community facilities. The Real Deal reports property owner Park-It Management is filings applications to move forward with another piece of the project at 213 East 125th Street. The existing two-story, nearly 20,000-square-foot commercial property will be expanded into a 14-story, 80-unit mixed-use building. The 96,539-square-foot structure will include 19,211 square feet of commercial-retail on the ground and second floors, and 6,212 square feet of community space on third floor. The apartment units should average 889 square feet apiece. SRA Architecture + Engineering will be designing.
New building applications were filed yesterday for a seven-story apartment building with ground floor retail at 701 Washington Avenue, on the eastern, Crown Heights side of the commercial thoroughfare.
YIMBY last checked in on the 65-story, 268-unit residential tower being built at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, back in October of 2015, when the structure topped out at 715 feet above street level. Since then, glass installation has been rapidly underway to encapsulate the residential interiors, which will eventually contain a total of 93 condominiums and 175 rental apartments. YIMBY now has close-up renderings of the 632,828-square-foot tower.
Back in November, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 42-story, 362-unit mixed-use building underway at 1 West End Avenue, in the Lincoln Square section of the Upper West Side. At the time, the structure was at least 25 floors above street level, but now the building has topped out, as seen in photos by Tectonic (h/t Curbed). The new building encompasses 932,780 square feet and will contain retail space, in addition to 116 below-market rate rental units, within its six-story base. The tower portion will feature 246 condominium units. Glass installation is currently underway and the stone cladding of the podium appears largely complete. Silverstein Properties and Elad Group are the developers. Pelli Clarke Pelli is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
