Work is nearing completion on 300 West 30th Street, a 16-story residential building in Chelsea. Designed by Studio C Architects and developed by Hiwin USA, which purchased the property from Salt Equities for $27.5 million in May 2018, the structure will yield 80 residential units and ground-floor retail space. Efin Management Corporation is the general manager of the project, which is located at the corner of West 30th Street and Eighth Avenue, a short walk from Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, and the new Moynihan Train Hall.
Construction has officially kicked off at 15 Monteith Street, a new affordable housing complex in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located within the sprawling Rheingold Brewery redevelopment zone, the project will debut as Rheingold Senior Residences and create 94 apartments for low-income seniors.
Permits have been filed for a 43-story mixed-use tower at 356 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of Fulton Street and Red Hook Lane, the lot is one block from the Jay Street-MetroTech subway station, serviced by the A, C, and F trains. Jeff Mongno of The Feil Organization is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The Department of City Planning is now reviewing proposals to construct an eight-story mixed-use building at 146-93 Guy R. Brewer Boulevard in Springfield Gardens, Queens. Before the project can break ground, the agency must approve a zoning map and text amendments that would permit the construction of a mixed-use residential property, which would exceed currently allowable density and use-type. The project will also be subject to an 18-month Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) to elicit feedback from local community groups and residents.
Excavation is progressing at 15 Beekman Street, the site of a 27-story academic center and dormitory for Pace University in the Financial District. Designed by Manish Chadha of Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by SL Green Realty, the 338-foot-tall structure will yield 213,084 square feet with classrooms, dorms, a dining facility, a library, and a learning center. The building will be built with a cellar, sub-cellar, and a 20-foot-long rear yard. New Line Structures & Development LLC is the general contractor for the Lower Manhattan project, which is alternatively addressed as 126-132 Nassau Street and located at the corner of Beekman and Nassau Streets.
