At the beginning of 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings for HAP’s planned 10-story, 93-unit mixed-use building at 2211 Third Avenue, in East Harlem, and now the developer has broken ground on the project, Real Estate Weekly reports. In the 120,000 square-foot building, commercial-retail space on the bottom floors will measure 26,000 square feet. A community facility on the ground floor will also take up 1,000 square feet. Twenty percent of the apartments will be let at below-market rates, and Karl Fischer is designing.
Extell was the city’s first developer to put up a residential building of 1,000 feet or greater, and while the construction of One57 was fraught with complications, practice will hopefully make perfect. Despite initial difficulties and buckling streets, the latest photos from Tectonic show One Manhattan Square is now making major headway, at 250 South Street.
Excavation was well underway back in 2013, when YIMBY reported on a large commercial project planned at 5-15 West 125th Street, in central Harlem. Since then, the project’s scope has increased from four to six stories, and also now includes a residential component of 30 units. The block-thru building is expected to have 75,000 square feet of commercial space, spanning from the cellar to the third floor, and the shorter 125th Street side is now getting its façade, per Harlem+Bespoke. The taller end on 126th Street is rising at a slower pace. Rosenbaum Design Group is the architect of record.
An anonymous LLC has filed applications for a six-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 818 60th Street, in southern Sunset Park, a block from the N train’s 8th Avenue stop. The building will measure 11,121 square feet in total, which includes 2,122 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels, in addition to 2,017 square feet of community office space on the ground and second-floor levels. Shiming Tam — based a few blocks away in Borough Park — is the architect of record, and a two-story building must first be demolished.
Lalezarian Properties has acquired a warehouse at 606 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea, for $36 million. The site currently has roughly 30,000 square feet of development rights, and is zoned for retail or light manufacturing, but the developer is likely waiting on a rezoning that would allow for residential use. The site is located across from the High Line and Related’s multi-skyscraper Hudson Yards development. [The Real Deal]
