Foundation work has started for yet another new high-rise on the site of the formerly-proposed “Star Tower,” in Long Island City, as reported by The Court Square Blog. YIMBY followed up on the initial report to find that the new building’s filing address has been changed to 27-17 42nd Road.
The new townhouse planned at 27 Cranberry Street in Brooklyn Heights was the subject of a New York Times story in 2013, and two years later, the Department of Buildings still hasn’t approved permits to construct the house. But YIMBY has the first rendering of what the home might look like once it’s finished.
Renderings have surfaced of Six Sigma’s planned eight-story, six-unit condominium building at 435 West 19th Street, in Chelsea. According to Curbed, the existing five-story building will be converted and expanded, and Pei Partnership Architects is designing. Residential units will average over 4,000 square feet and will share a slew of luxury amenities.
At 455 West 19th Street, in Chelsea, a single-story warehouse is expected to be redeveloped into an 11-story, nine-unit mixed-use building, according to Curbed. The building will measure 27,480 square feet in total, which will include 1,145 square feet of old warehouse space retained on the ground floor. Units will average a condo-sized 2,925 square feet. NYC Prince LLC is the developer, and Paik Architecture is the architect of record.
Ginsburg Development Companies is planning a three-story, 55-unit luxury residential building at 1177 Warburton Avenue, in northern Yonkers, a five-minute walk from the Greystone Metro North station. The developer requires approval from the Zoning Board of Appeals, and four single-family homes must first be demolished, according to Westfair Communications. Groundbreaking is expected in the Spring of 2016, with completion in 2017.
