Back in September of 2014, YIMBY brought you an update on adjacent residential projects at 10 Bond Street and 372 Lafayette Street (a.k.a. 11 Great Jones Street), in NoHo. The former project, a seven-story, 11-unit condominium building, went on the to have construction completed by the end of the summer of 2015. Construction has since entirely wrapped up on the latter project, a six-story, eight-unit residential building, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The property is completely unobscured from scaffolding and occupancy is currently underway. The ground floor and cellar levels will contain 2,143 square feet of retail space. The eight rental apartments above measure between 1,300 and 2,000 square feet apiece, coming in two- and three-bedroom configurations, although some units appear to have been divided into multiple apartments. Kano Properties is the developer, and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design.

In 2015, Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and Rockpoint Group acquired, for $275 million, the seven-story, 338-unit rental apartment building at 184 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, with the intention to convert the property into condominium units. The conversion project, dubbed Austin Nichols House, will include 338 condominium units, and now Curbed NY has the latest details. They will come in studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, and the existing rentals are currently being converted on a unit-to-unit basis. Morris Adjmi Architects is designing the conversion, which includes a revamped lobby, new amenity spaces, and, of course, the apartments. The ground-floor is currently occupied by multiple retail units. The property was used as a warehouse before it was converted into residential space in 2010 by JMH Development.
It was back in December that YIMBY told you of Premiere Equities’ plans for a new commercial building at 134 Wooster Street, located between Houston and Price streets in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. Those plans went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday and were approved with very little fuss.
Last September, Blumenfeld Development Group received all the approvals needed to convert the five-story commercial property at 41 Great Jones Street, in NoHo, into a six-story, three-unit residential building. Construction was supposed to start that November, but work never kicked off and now the 14,431-square-foot property is on the market for $21 million, Curbed NY reported. The conversion project was designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and will more than likely be carried out if a new developer acquires the building. As currently planned, the existing building would be expanded by a single story to total 16,395 square feet. There would be two duplexes and a triplex unit, each averaging a very spacious 4,444 square feet.
Last August, GPB Realty Capital entered contract on a vacant slice of property at 211-215 Schermerhorn Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Now they’ve filed plans for a 14-story mixed-use building there between Hoyt and Bond Streets.
