Michael Paul Enterprises has filed applications to combine and enlarge two four-story townhouses at 163-165 East 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side. The expanded building will gain two stories, and will stand six stories and 60 feet to the roof. Five residential units will spread across 11,654 square feet, which translates into average units of 2,331 square feet, indicative of condos. Thomas Vail’s Vail Associates Architects is the applicant of record.
YIMBY has chronicled the slow evolution of ABN Realty’s 21-story, 24-unit residential project at 19 Park Place, in Tribeca, since the summer of 2013, and now a YIMBY reader has shared photos of the topped-out structure. The façade can also be seen rising skyward, and each condominium will feature a relatively prominent circular balcony. The 25-foot-wide building is being designed by Ismael Leyva, and extends through the block. Completion is likely by early 2016.
Williamsburg is already home to the famous Brooklyn Brewery and the New York Distilling Company, and it looks like a new distiller may be setting up shop just over the border in Greenpoint. New building applications were filed for a three-story commercial building with a distillery on the ground floor at 14 Wythe Avenue, on a wedge-shaped lot bounded by Gem, Banker and North 15th Streets.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 23-unit mixed-use building at 97-30 64th Avenue, in Rego Park, two blocks from the subway stop at 63rd Drive on the M and R trains. Now, DNAinfo reports construction is underway, and a rendering has appeared at the site. The building will have condominiums, which will be on the smaller side, averaging 720 square feet. Community facility space will measure 4,000 square feet on the lower portion of the building. Rego Park-based Hang Chen, with CZK Realty LLC, are developing, and Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing.
Property owner Praim Singh has filed applications for a seven-story, 13-unit mixed-use building at 217 9th Street, in southern Gowanus, right around the corner from subway stops on the R, F and G trains. The building will measure 13,500 square feet in total, which includes a 2,990 square-foot medical facility on the ground floor. Residential units begin on the second floor and will average 808 square feet apiece. Peter Gee’s South Slope-based architectural firm is designing, and an existing three-story structure must first be demolished.
