Back in April of 2014, YIMBY reported on the first new building applications for the development site at 55 West 17th Street. And now, we have the first renderings for the project, which is being designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and developed by Toll Brothers City Living.

After revealing the first rendering for the building, YIMBY reported on the summer ground-breaking of 472 Atlantic Avenue/465 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, and now The New York Times has a day-time image of the project, along with new details. Condominiums will come in one- to five-bedroom configurations, though the majority will be family-sized with three bedrooms, measuring roughly 1,400 square feet apiece. Stribling Marketing Associates is the broker, Avery Hall Investments and ARIA Development Group are developing, and Morris Adjmi Architects is designing, with completion currently anticipated for the winter of 2017.
Earlier this year, the LPC approved the conversion of a five-story commercial structure into a six-story, three-unit residential building at 41 Great Jones Street, in NoHo. Now Community Board 2 has approved the building for residential use, according to Real Estate Weekly. The units will be condominiums — two duplexes and a triplex — spanning a total of 13,333 square feet. The exterior will also be restored, and construction is slated to begin this November. Blumenfeld Development Group is developing, while Morris Adjmi Architects is designing.
The concept of retaining Park Slope’s Pavilion cinema in a new, smaller form while converting the rest of the building and demolishing the neighboring one-story building for apartments was welcomed by the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. However, the current proposal could not pass muster. Put simply, it was seen as out of scale by many of the commissioners. The sentiment was shared by the public.
Savanna has filed applications for a variance to build a 44-story, 310,000 square-foot mixed-use building at 141 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. In exchange for the rezoning, 30 percent of the building’s 270 residential units would be set aside as affordable. At the base, 28,000 square feet of retail space would span the ground and second floors, in addition to 34,000 square feet of office space on the third and fourth floors, according to The Real Deal. An existing three-story building must first be demolished.
