At the corner of West and India Streets in Greenpoint, two starkly different residential developments are about to rise. On the western side of the block, along the East River, two developers have demolished an old envelope factory to make way for a 40-story residential tower. And YIMBY has the first look at the much more modest five-story rental building planned for 144 West Street, on the eastern side of the block.
While it’s taken over a decade for the first few projects to get moving along the Far West Side, both Hudson Yards and Manhattan West are now well underway, with the concrete for 10 Hudson Yards having topped-out just last week. Now, we have an update from Tectonic with photos of 3 Manhattan West. Completion is slightly further out at the future residential tower, but the building is rapidly rising into the Midtown skyline, and cladding installation now underway.
The bluestone-clad facade is coming together beautifully at 155 West 18th Street, where Izaki Group is developing an 11-story condo building between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.
Brooklyn-based Snyder Estates has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 2717 Snyder Avenue, in Flatbush, two blocks away form the Church Avenue stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The building will measure 8,246 square feet in total, which means units will average 825 square feet apiece. One of the units on the fourth floor will also feature a fifth-floor penthouse. Genaro Ureta’s Masbeth-based GRU Corporation is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house must first be demolished.
In October of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 27-story, 168-unit residential building at 27-19 44th Drive, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog has spotted on-site renderings of the project, which is being developed by Twining Properties. The latest permits have the building measuring 128,006 square feet, which includes 2,807 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and units averaging 731 square feet apiece. Handel Architects is the architect of record. Demolition of the site’s two-story predecessor finished in September, and completion is slated for the summer of 2017.
