The massive rectangular-shaped project taking up a full block at 85 Jay Street has officially been dubbed “Front and York,” and today YIMBY has a full update on site progress. Bound by Front Street and York Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, the 1.1 million square foot residential complex will soon sprout from what was one of the neighborhood’s last and largest undeveloped lots. The new building, with retail shops on the ground floor and a mixture of condominiums and rentals above, is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and is being developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK.
Morris Adjmi Architects will soon appear before the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to propose a new mixed-use development in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. If approved, the existing one-story commercial building at 38 West 8th Street would be replaced by a six-story residential property with ground-floor retail and a small community facility.
Rising above NoMad between Park Avenue South and Madison Avenue, 30 East 31st Street is a new residential tower designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and stands 40 stories to its rooftop. The crossed beams at the top of the building are a visual signature of the design, and will soon be enclosed in an exterior envelope of dark-colored waterproofing and glass. The project is being developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate.
As if the High Line is not already filled with enough unique and interesting structures that stretch the nearly 1.5 mile long public park, another interesting building is under construction, and rising off the ground. Located at 520 West 20th Street on the western side of the High Line, the future site of, “The Warehouse,” designed by Morris Adjmi and developed by Elijah Equities, has been making good progress in the West Chelsea neighborhood.
Just up the street from the Ace Hotel at 266 Schermerhorn, in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Boerum Hill, the Morris Adjmi-designed 211 Schermerhorn Street is now halfway up to its future height of 14 floors. The project is being developed by Oestreicher Properties and GPB Capital Holdings, LLC, who purchased the site for $30 million last year, and it will contain 48 units ranging from one- to three-bedrooms.
