This past summer, DNAinfo reported that the dilapidated two-story church at 215 West 122nd Street in Harlem was going to be demolished, and now applications have been filed for the site’s replacement. Yaniv Zohar has filed for a six-story, six-unit residential building measuring a total 8,881 square feet. The full-floor units will likely be condos, averaging 1,480 square feet apiece. The top-floor unit will also feature a seventh-floor penthouse. Arnold Montag’s Great Neck-based AM/PM Design & Consulting is the architect of record.
YoungWoo & Associates and RXR Realty have presented updated plans for the renovation of Pier 57, an abandoned 560,000 square-foot former waterway terminal, near the Meatpacking District. According to Curbed, the rooftop will operate as a 1.8-acre public park, with 13,399 square feet of green space, a restaurant pavilion and wooden stadium. It was also previously reported a 100,000 square-foot food court is planned, and Google is expected to take 250,000 square feet of office space. A public hearing on the project is expected in the coming months. Completion is slated for 2017.
Dyker Heights-based Francesco Mancini has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit residential building at 73 Bay 47th Street, in southwestern Gravesend, two blocks from the D train’s stop at Bay 50th Street.

The building will measure 5,324 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 665 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s two-story predecessor was demolished in 2001.
Property owner Jenel Management is clearing out the three-story retail building at 399 Knickerbocker Avenue, in northern Bushwick, ahead of planned renovations, according to DNAinfo.
