The lobby at 1345 Avenue of Americas has been renovated, and today, YIMBY has an exclusive first look inside the space. Skidmore, Owings & Merrill were commissioned by Fisher Brothers to redesign the interior. The owners wanted to replace the original white and tan marble with a brighter, more spacious lobby, and the photos indicate that the architects have accomplished exactly that.
The Downtown Brooklyn residential boom has ranked among the most impressive growth spurts any neighborhood has seen in the history of the Five Boroughs, and now, plans have been submitted to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at the periphery of the boom, in Clinton Hill. There, at 550 Clinton Avenue, Morris Adjmi Architects is designing a new 29-story residential tower, which went before the LPC for review yesterday.
When we last checked in on 587 Main Street in New Rochelle, New York, it was barely noticeable on the skyline, rising just six flights up. Now, thanks to photos by Nick Ramacciato, we can see that the structure has made substantial progress. Work is currently up to the 20th floor, out of a total 28. Façade installation has not yet started, though the angled shape of the building is easily visible. Paulus, Sokolowski, and Sartor (PS&S) are responsible for the architecture, and a fresh rendering also gives a better view of what the top floors will soon look like.
A rendering has been revealed for the six-story residential building set to rise at 1702 Newkirk Avenue, in Southern Flatbush, Brooklyn. The concrete design showcases a small amount of landscaping along the outside of the entrance, and eight balconies, with two on each floor after the third. Bizdesigns is responsible for the architecture.
Permits have been filed for two conjoined four-story residential buildings at 85 and 87 Herkimer Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The sites are two blocks away from the Fulton Street and Nostrand intersection, co-located with the Nostrand Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the A and C trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as responsible for development.
