YIMBY last reported on the 34-story, 84-unit mixed-use building under development at 360 East 89th Street, on the corner of First Avenue on the Upper East Side, when it was six stories above street level in January. The 377-foot-tall, 212,325-square-foot tower, dubbed Citizen360, has since topped out, as seen in photos by our friend Tectonic. It will feature 3,265 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by 84 condominium units, ranging from one- to four-bedrooms. The apartments should average a spacious 2,175 square feet apiece. Amenities include a 22-car automated parking garage, a residential lounge, a fitness center, bike storage space, private residential storage, a children’s playroom, an entertainment suite, and laundry facilities. Anbau Enterprises is the developer, while SHoP Architects is behind the design and architecture. Clodagh is responsible for the design of the interiors. Occupancy is expected in early 2017.
Back in March, the six-story, 82-unit mixed-use building began to rise at the block-thru plot at 438 East 12th Street, in the East Village. The complex now appears to be topped out, according to photos by EV Grieve. Dubbed Steiner East Village, it is to encompass 151,943 square feet. That will include 8,376 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 961-square-foot medical offices, also on the ground floor. Its 82 condominiums, averaging 1,315 square feet apiece, will come in one- to four-bedroom configurations. Amenities include a pool and spa, a gym, a library, a children’s playroom, a courtyard, and rooftop gardens. Douglas Steiner’s New Jersey-based Steiner Equities Group, doing business as their New York arm Steiner NYC, is the developer, while S9 Architecture is behind the design. Paris Forino is responsible for the interiors and Future Green Studio is the landscape designer. Completion can be expected in 2017.
South Williamsburg’s latest upscale rental has emerged from its scaffolding at 282 South 5th Street, and photographer Tectonic recently swung by to give YIMBY shots of the construction progress.
When Robert Moses built the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway in the 1950s, he pushed the area between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge approaches even further into isolation, hemming it in on all sides with highways. But OTL Enterprises managed to snag a large and favorably zoned parcel at 22 Chapel Street, just off Flatbush Avenue Extension. Now they’ve filed plans to erect a 20-story, mixed-use building on the lot, which is bounded on the other two sides by Cathedral Place and Jay Street.
As May came to an end, the New York City Fire Department was investigating the fire that gutted the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava, an individual landmark at 15 West 25th Street in the Flatiron District. Authorities and engineers were studying the structural integrity of the remains, and have now declared the church “too unstable to be left standing,” the New York Post reported. That means the main house of worship will be demolished. The rectory portion of the cathedral, which was unscathed during the fire, currently also has Landmarks protection, which should mean it won’t be demolished with the main structure. The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) has the option to de-designate the property, too, but we think, at the very least, the LPC will want to keep the rectory a landmark. The Executive Board of St. Sava will now decide if they will rebuild on the property or relocate. The site has 244,450 square feet of mixed-use development rights, minus the usable square-footage of the rectory.
