Construction has been completed on the six-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 21 Commercial Street, in northern Greenpoint. The update is possible thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, officially dubbed 7 Bell Slip, encompasses 88,706 square feet. It will include 2,557 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units on the floors above, 92 of which will rent at below-market-rates through the affordable housing lottery. The apartments will range from studios to two-bedrooms and should average 887 square feet apiece. Amenities include laundry facilities, storage for 47 bikes, and a fitness center. The project is being built as part of the 10-building, 5,500-unit mixed-use mega-development Greenpoint Landing. Park Tower Group and L+M Development Partners developed 21 Commercial Street, and Handel Architects designed it.
It’s been a few years since the city’s Economic Development Corporation announced plans to develop a 700-unit underground parking garage on Willoughby Street in Downtown Brooklyn and create a one-acre green space on top. Now, the park, Willoughby Square, is one step closer to reality, as the city prepares to demolish an office building at 217 Duffield Street, between Willoughby and Fulton streets. Prolific construction photographer Tectonic brought us photos of what the site looks like now.
Happy Living Development has filed applications for a 12-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 441 West 37th Street, in Midtown West. The project will measure 19,441 square feet in its entirety. Part of the ground floor will contain a 357-square-foot doctor’s office. The rest of the ground floor and the second floor will host a single duplex unit, followed by full-floor apartments on the third through eighth floors. Two duplex apartments will be located across the ninth through 12th floors. The units should average 1,647 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities will include private residential storage space, bike storage, “recreation space” on the second floor, and a rooftop terrace. De-Jan Lu’s Greenwich Village-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,468-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed. The nearest subway station is the 34 St – Hudson Yards terminus of the 7 train.
Since standing four stories in height back in May, the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use complex under development at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street, in Greenpoint, has grown 12 stories, as seen in photos taken earlier this month by NY Construction Photography. The main tower will eventually climb to 392 feet above street level, with the entire complex to measure 716,982 square feet. There will be 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail and 3,802 square feet of medical offices. The floors above will host the residential units, averaging 894 square feet apiece, of which 20 percent (128 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The residential amenities are listed in YIMBY’s previous update. Mack Real Estate Group and Palin Enterprises are the developers. Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the design and completion is expected by 2018.
Construction is underway on the fourth floor of the 17-story, 397-unit mixed-use building being developed at 515 Marin Boulevard, located between Eighth and Ninth streets in the Hamilton Park section of Jersey City. The construction update is possible thanks to a photo posted to the Forums. Dubbed Marin Residences, it will also feature 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units will be located above, of which 20 percent (80 units) will be designated as affordable. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. A 261-car parking garage is also being built, in addition to a 30,000-square-foot public park directly behind the project. Kushner Real Estate Group and Claremont Properties are the developers. HWKN Architects is behind the design and completion is expected in late 2017.
