Lyco Investment Corp. and Nexus Development are planning to build an eight-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 258-260 Bowery, in Nolita, according to Bowery Boogie. The project has not been submitted to the DOB, but permits are already on file to demolish the existing three-story building. A rendering includes some form of commercial space on the ground and second floors, and condos begin on the third floor, meaning full-floor units are likely. Morris Adjmi is designing, and the façade is required to be masonry.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a 10-story, 13-unit mixed-use building planned at 173-175 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side, and now a rendering has surfaced of the project, per Bowery Boogie. The new building will have 1,537 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and the condos will average roughly 2,000 square feet apiece. Nexus Development is developing, ODA Architecture is designing, and completion is tentatively expected in 2018.
Back in April, Forest City Ranter proposed their Nassau Coliseum redevelopment plans to the Town of Hempstead, and a month later, their submission was approved, with the first phase expected to include stadium renovations and adjacent new retail space. Now, a team of business and government officials are proposing a 250,000 square-foot bioelectronic research facility on a portion of the 91-acre Uniondale site, according to Innovate Long Island. The $300 million complex would host 50 laboratories and engineering shops, and would be built atop an underground parking garage.
A top-down renovation is nearly complete at the four-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 95 Avenue B, in the East Village. According to EV Grieve, a newly constructed retail unit is now available on the ground floor. The Schedule A notes two residential units occupy the upper floors of the building, and those have also been gut-renovated. Clinton Hill-based PH Architecture + Sustainable is the architect of record, and scaffolding has recently been removed, indicating opening is likely imminent.
Earlier this September, YIMBY broke news that Extell’s 99-story Nordstrom Tower lost its spire and will rise 1,550 feet to the parapet, and today, the building is on the rise at 217 West 57th Street, per Curbed. Since YIMBY’s last construction update in July, significant progress has been made. The tower’s concrete core is currently above street level, and the rest of the building is slowly rising out of the pit. Nordstrom will occupy a significant chunk of the building’s base, and the 1.3-million square-foot tower is expected to be finished by 2019.
