Last week, the city of Newark announced that a 7.5-acre, 2.3-million-square-foot mixed-use development is in the works at 450 Broad Street. That’s downtown, on the current site of the Bears & Eagles Riverfront Stadium. The project will include residential units, office space, retail, and cultural space, Jersey Digs reported. The number of units wasn’t disclosed, but the site could easily accommodate over 1,000 of them. Lotus Equity Group is the developer and Practice for Architecture Urbanism is designing the project’s master plan. The 6,200-seat baseball stadium will be demolished. The four-story parking garage just south of it isn’t part of the site.
A Staten Island-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 448 Clove Road, in Port Richmond, on Staten Island’s North Shore. The project will measure 2,749 square feet. There will be a 916 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, followed by a single residential unit on each of the floors above. The apartments should average 917 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Ryan & Vaccaro is the architect of record. The 32-foot-wide, 3,575-square-foot property is vacant.
Last week, YIMBY brought you news that the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to calendar sections of the interior of the 44-story, 1,413-key Waldorf Astoria New York hotel at 301 Park Avenue, located on an entire Midtown block. Now, as part of a planned mixed-use conversion, property owner Anbang Insurance Group has filed applications to convert large swaths of the tower into residential units.
Construction is nearly finished on 432 Park Avenue, the tallest residential building in the Western hemisphere. Five open-air mechanical floors on the 1,396-foot-tall skyscraper will be lit every day at sunset starting Monday, and we have photos of the display.
Last year, YIMBY gave you the first look at the residential expansion planned for 207 South 3rd Street in Williamsburg. Now we’ve got new renderings of the project, which is under construction at the corner of Roebling Street. The updated images show factory-style windows, glassy balconies with landscaping, and a gray brick facade. However, the boxy, protruding shape and the double-height ground floor remain the same as the original design.
