Last month, YIMBY posted the first renderings for the tower coming to 36 Central Park South, on the site of the old Helmsley Hotel. The first version was created by Handel Architects, and the second — which we only had a glimpse of — was designed by Herzog & de Meuron, and we now have additional images of that version.
On a dead-end block of Debevoise Street near Bushwick Houses in Williamsburg, a developer wants to erect a five-story, mixed-use apartment building. New building applications were filed last week for a 22-unit project at 40 Debevoise Street, between Graham Avenue and Humboldt Street, just north of the Bed-Stuy border.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the first permits for La Central, a sprawling affordable housing complex set to rise on a vacant lot in the Melrose section of the South Bronx. Now the city has filed more plans for the development’s two biggest residential towers at 556 and 600 Bergen Avenue, about two blocks from the 3rd Avenue-East 149th Street stop on the 2/5 trains. We’ve also got a few new renderings, including interiors for a planned YMCA.
Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley have closed on a $445 million construction loan for their planned 58-story, 157-condo-unit luxury tower at 111 Murray Street, in Tribeca. YIMBY brought you new renderings of the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed building last month, and David Mann is designing the interiors; retail space will also measure 2,100 square feet on the ground floor.
Last Summer, YIMBY brought you news of General Growth Properties’ plans to expand the 1.2 million square-foot Staten Island Mall, at 2655 Richmond Avenue, by 418,000 square feet. Perkins Eastman is designing, and the first renderings of the expansion were released in February. Now, per Commercial Observer, the City Planning Commission has approved the project, and updated renderings are available. Construction will begin once the DOB green-lights the building permits, and completion is expected in 2017.
