1479 Greene Avenue

Four-Story, 10-Unit Residential Building Planned At 1479 Greene Avenue, Bushwick

Jack Rothenberg, doing business as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1479 Greene Avenue, in northern Bushwick, located four or five blocks from stops on either the M or L trains. While the project will measure 11,657 square feet in its entirety, 8,673 square feet will be used as residential space, which means units will average 867 square feet apiece. The building will feature a fifth-floor penthouse, which will be part of a duplex unit located on the fourth floor. Charles Mallea’s Brooklyn-based M Architecture is the applicant of record. The plot of land includes a vacant parcel and a two-story wood-framed house, which must first be demolished.


601 West 26th Street

Ground-Floor Retail Planned In 20-Story Office Building At 601 West 26th Street, West Chelsea

RXR Realty is planning to convert the ground floor of the Starrett-Lehigh Building – a 20-story, 2.3-million square-foot office building at 601 West 26th Street, in West Chelsea – into 50,000 square feet of retail space. The building, built in 1931 and designed by Cory & Cory, is an individual landmark and sits within the West Chelsea Historic District, which means the Landmarks Preservation Commission must approve the plans. According to Crain’s, new retail will span the full length of Eleventh Avenue between West 26th and 27th Streets. Verizon previously occupied the ground and second floors of the property along Eleventh Avenue but agreed to relocate within the building. An architecture firm has not been selected, although construction is tentatively expected to begin next year.


125 Greenwich Street

91-Story, 275-Unit Residential Tower Now Planned At 125 Greenwich Street, Financial District

Over the summer, YIMBY revealed the latest renderings for the planned 1,000-foot-plus residential tower at 125 Greenwich Street (a.k.a 22 Thames Street), in the Financial District. Permits with the Department of Buildings have yet to depict such tower, but filings with the Attorney General’s office offer a more accurate description of what’s planned. According to The Real Deal, the building will stand 91 stories above street level. It will have 275 condominium units spread across 306,312 square feet of residential space. Specifically, the units will range from studios to three-bedrooms, with the largest unit measuring 3,625 square feet. Michael Shvo, Vector Group, and Bizzi & Partners are developing the tower and Rafael Viñoly Architects is designing it. The floor layouts suggest the final design has yet to be revealed, although foundation work is currently underway. Completion is expected in 2018.
