Last week, we toured 90 Morton Street, a 12-story building in the West Village that is being converted from warehouse to condominiums. Construction is moving along quickly, with the major structural additions now complete. Brack Capital Real Estate is responsible for the development, having purchased the site in 2014 for $105 million. YIMBY sat down with the project’s team to discuss the evolution of the southwest West Village, the challenges involved in converting and expanding a historic warehouse, and expectations for the neighborhood’s future.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 2308 Andrews Avenue N in the University Heights neighborhood of The Bronx. The site is four blocks away from the Fordham Road subway station, serviced by the 4 trains, and four blocks further from an identically named station serviced by the D trains. Five blocks away is the University Heights train station, serviced by the Hudson trains along MetroNorth. Semyon Muratov is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 214 15th Avenue in the affluent Bay Terrace subsection of Bayside, Queens. A large parking lot-centric commercial center is just five blocks away, but the nearest public transit, the Queens Village train station serviced by the LIRR, is 7 miles away, or a 1-hour commute by bus. Dun Xing Zhang is listed as responsible for the development.
Concrete is finally starting to rise for the soon-to-be 800-foot tall residential tower at 130 William Street in the Financial District. The building has surpassed the significant brunt of foundational work, and is now beginning to progress above ground level. Sir David Adjaye of Adjaye Associates is responsible for the design.
New building permits have been filed for a seven-story hotel at 35 Port Richmond Avenue in Elm Park, Staten Island. The site is distant from public transport, though it is about one mile from the first exit off the Bayonne Bridge, which connects with New Jersey. Three blocks from the lot is the waterside Faber Park, a small scenic public green space. M.S. Savani Architecture is listed as responsible for the design.
