Earlier this week, we posted photos of work at 217 West 57th Street as viewed from the street level, and now we have a fresh set of overhead shots from reader Andrew McKeon, featuring both 220 Central Park South and 217 West 57th Street. And when comparing with the last set of similar shots from February, progress has been very significant.
On a 1,040 square-foot vacant lot in northern Williamsburg, GB Properties plans to build a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building measuring just 5,202 square feet. The piece of land is at 291 North 8th Street, two blocks north of the G train’s stop at Metropolitan Avenue, and the building will feature 3,131 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. Above, full-floor units will average 1,040 square feet apiece. Robert Bahary’s Great Neck-based Bahary Architecture is designing.
Michael Gross, operating as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, single-residence mixed-use building at 1519 52nd Street, in southern Borough Park, between 15th and 16th Avenues. The entire building will measure 9,979 square feet, and includes a 1,955 square-foot religious facility in the basement level. The upper three levels will encompass an 8,024 square-foot home. Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record, and a 2.5-story structure must first be demolished.
Williamsburg’s ongoing development boom is stretching across all parts of the neighborhood, and includes everything from apartments to hotels and office buildings. But smaller infill is just as important in terms of rounding out the pedestrian realm, and now we have renderings of plans for an old warehouse at 120 North 6th Street, which Kenneth Park Architects will transform into both retail and office space.
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.
