Restoration Hardware is planning to convert the five-story, 25,000 square-foot building at 55 Gansevoort Street, in the Meatpacking District, into a 14-key boutique hotel. According to Crain’s, the ground floor of the building will feature a restaurant. Delshah Capital owns the five-story building, but Restoration Hardware — whose flagship store is located around the corner of 9th Avenue — has leased the entire property.
Earlier this year, Brownstoner caught the first glimpse of the boutique condo development at 170-174 West Street in Greenpoint. Now YIMBY has renderings for the six-story project designed by StudiosC Architects, who are headquartered a few blocks away on Greenpoint Avenue.
Back in 2013, YIMBY brought you news of the six-story, five-unit condominium building planned at 52 Wooster Street, in SoHo, and then in mid-2014, we posted an update noting steel-frame construction was underway. Now, a tipster has sent along a better rendering of the project, as well as the link to its teaser site.
Six years ago, the city upzoned a quiet, largely vacant stretch of Webster Avenue next to Woodlawn Cemetery to allow the construction of a large affordable housing development, Webster Commons. Some of the buildings have already started renting through the city’s housing lottery process, but new building applications were filed yesterday for another piece of the project at 3620 Webster Avenue.
Applications were first filed in early 2014 for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at the vacant lot of 369 Berry Street, in western Williamsburg, and now Brownstoner has spotted renderings of the project. The building will total 13,490 square feet, which includes 2,383 and 2,627 square feet of commercial and community space, respectively; apartments will average 850 square feet. M&B Monroe Inc. is developing, while Charles Mallea is the architect of record.
