EV Grieve has noticed Vinbaytel Property Development’s seven-story, seven-condo-unit mixed-use building is wrapping up construction at 67 Avenue C, in the East Village. The façade has been installed, and the building will also includes a commercial unit for a retail tenant. Opening is scheduled for this summer.
SL Green Realty has filed applications for a four-story, 6,020 square-foot commercial building — rising 57 feet tall — at 719 7th Avenue, in Midtown’s Theater District. The job description states the building will be solely for retail, and will feature signage above the roof. TPG Architecture is designing, and the existing three-story building was approved for demolition back in December.
Per The Real Deal, the Salvation Army has sold the development site spanning 176-180 Bedford Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, to Thor Equities for $36.1 million, which equates to $2,500 per square-foot. The site boasts 14,400 square feet of building potential, and undisclosed construction plans will almost surely include a large retail component.
While escalating prices are a bad thing, zoning limitations and historic districts are quickly turning the Lower East Side into one of the only parts of New York City where attractive and occasionally avant-garde architecture is legitimately feasible. YIMBY can now reveal the design for one of the neighborhood’s dwindling number of development sites, at 57 Orchard Street, where DXA Studio is designing a 15-story condominium tower.
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.
