YIMBY last checked in on 333 Schermerhorn Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, back in September, and since then the structure has grown rapidly, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports. The 56-story, 750-unit mixed-use tower is only weeks from topping out, with just five floors to go, and façade work can also be seen wrapping around the lower portion of the skyscraper. Upon completion, it will be (temporarily) the tallest building in Brooklyn, standing 610 feet above street level. Of the residential units, 150 of them will be set aside as affordable housing and 34,823 square feet of retail space is planned. Douglas Steiner is developing, Dattner Architects is designing, and move-ins are expected in mid-2016.
The owners of Esplanade Luxury Senior Residences – a 14-story, 120-resident senior-exclusive building located at 95 South Broadway, in White Plains – have proposed converting the property into regular rental apartments, according to Westfair. The conversion would shrink the 1965-built structure to 251,000 square feet, and in addition to 212 rental units, it would have 9,000 and 6,750 square feet of medical offices and restaurant space, respectively. The project would displace its current residents and is now under review by the city’s Common Council. Esplanade of White Plains Venture Partnership is developing and Sullivan Architecture is designing.
Back in September, filings were submitted for the planned 26-story, 323-unit mixed-use building at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street/664 Pacific Street, in Prospect Heights, and now DNAinfo has the project’s reveal. A 616-seat, 69,858 square-foot public school will span seven floors within the building: two below-grade levels and the first five floors. The project is a part of the Pacific Park mega-development, and a team comprised of Greenland Group and Forest City Ratner is developing; Marvel Architects is designing. Demolition is currently underway on three townhouses fronting Dean Street.
Slate Property Group and RWN Real Estate have acquired the 10-story, 33-unit apartment building at 144 East 24th Street, in Kips Bay, for $29 million. The 40,000 square-foot structure will be renovated and reconfigured into a 42-unit property with smaller apartments, likely to accommodate the neighborhood’s growing student population. The small ground-floor retail space will also be expanded. It is currently occupied by Ralph’s Famous Italian Ices, according to The Real Deal.
This past summer, steel beam construction began on the 12-story, 38-unit condo building planned at 100 Norfolk Street, on the Lower East Side, but the project ended up stalling out for a number of months until crews recently were able to get back on site. The structure is now rising again and currently four stories up, courtesy of photos by Tectonic. The 53,949 square-foot structure includes 11,244 square feet of commercial space, which was marketed as two units. Five residential units remain for sale and completion is expected in late 2016. ODA Architecture is designing and Adam America Real Estate, Naveh Shuster Group, and Horizon Group are developing.
