Tishman Speyer is in the process of acquiring the development site at 550 West 37th Street — on 11th Avenue, between West 36th and 37th streets — in the Hudson Yards district, for $185 million. According to Crain’s Business, the parcel boasts 735,000 square feet of mixed-use building potential, but can be expanded to roughly 1.7 million square feet with the purchase of bonus air rights. The developer also plans a significant tower at 435 10th Avenue, a few blocks to the south.
Slate Property Group is planning to develop a seven-story, 126-rental-unit mixed-use building from the existing single-story warehouse at 432 Rodney Street, in central Williamsburg.

Last December, YIMBY reported on filings calling for a 12-story, 129-unit mixed-use building at 581 Fourth Avenue, in South Slope, and now Curbed has the Karl Fischer-designed reveal.

Multiple low-rise structures must first be demolished before construction begins.
All Year Management has begun excavation on their planned 16-story, 166-unit mixed-use building at 41-21 28th Street, in Long Island City, reports The Court Square Blog. The Karl Fischer-designed building will measure nearly 127,400 square feet, and a 675 square-foot retail unit is planned on the ground floor. A rough rendering has appeared on-site, and the project is slated for completion in Fall 2016. The site’s former two-story building was demolished late last year.
In October 2014, a 10-story, eight-unit mixed-use building was rising at 179 Suffolk Street, at East Houston Street on the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie reports the nearly 14,500 square-foot structure topped out last Spring, and now façade installation is nearly complete. The first two levels will be occupied by a religious facility, and opening is likely within the coming months. Defonseca Architects is the architect of record.
