A low-slung brick building at 555 Graham Avenue in Greenpoint is about to get a very unusual and glassy update, along with two extra floors of apartments.
Plans were filed yesterday to build a seven-story, 38-unit apartment building at 1930 Bedford Avenue between Fenimore and Hawthorne Streets in Prospect Lefferts Gardens.
Applications have been filed for an eight-story, 100-key hotel — the rooms split between roughly 66,000 square feet — at 456 Greenwich Street, in Tribeca. Western Heritable Investment Company, Caspi Development and Barone Management are the developers, and the entire building will span 102,000 square feet, with the SBJ Group designing.
Last fall, Chinese developer Cheerland Investments paid a whopping $129 million for the United Charities office building at 287 Park Avenue South, a nine-story Renaissance Revival structure built in 1892. An insider told the Wall Street Journal that it would be converted to condos, and earlier this week, permits were filed for a residential conversion that would add nine stories to the top.
Applications have been filed for a three-story, three-unit residential building measuring nearly 5,300 square feet at 1448 57th Street, in southern Borough Park. Horia E. Iuonas is the architect of record, and an existing two-story structure must first be removed.
