One Four-Story & Four Two-Story Residential Buildings Filed At 710-718 East 221st Street, Williamsbridge

Long Island-based Gagandeep Singh has filed applications for five small residential buildings at 710-718 East 221st Street, in Williamsbridge, located a block north of the 219th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. At 710 East 221st Street, a four-story, eight-unit building is planned, with average units measuring a rental-sized 622 square feet apiece. At tax lot nos. 712 to 718, a row of four, smaller two-story buildings will line the street, each containing two residential units. All of the smaller buildings will boast large, full-floor apartments that average roughly 1,750 square feet in size. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in September to demolish the existing two-story house.

Checking Out the Views And Lobby at Halcyon, 305 East 51st Street

People are already living at Halcyon, HFZ Capital Group’s 123-unit development at 305 East 51st Street in Midtown East, but construction is still incomplete. The retail space along Second Avenue is still being built, as are the 32nd and 33rd floor duplex penthouse units. The lobby, however, was recently completed and YIMBY got a look at it, a fourth floor model unit, and the views from one of the penthouses.

Architecture Firms Selected For Interior Redesign Of Philharmonic’s David Geffen Hall

Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and the New York Philharmonic have selected London-based Heatherwick Studio and Toronto-based Diamond Schmitt Architects to redesign the interior of David Geffen Hall, the orchestra’s 2,738-seat home located on the corner of West 65th Street, on the Upper West Side, technically Lincoln Square. The Max Abramovitz-designed structure, which originally opened in 1962 as Philharmonic Hall, later becoming Avery Fisher Hall, will receive a $500 million gut renovation, according to the New York Times. A design will be released next summer, with construction scheduled to begin in 2019. Akustiks and Fisher Dachs, acoustic and theater design firms, respectively, are also part of the team. The project has been in the works for over a decade, or since the beginning of Lincoln Center’s redevelopment.
