Home design company Restoration Hardware is trying to expand, with a hotel under development at 55 Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District. That plan, however, needs some work as the Landmarks Preservation Commission did not grant a certificate of appropriateness on Tuesday.
Over the last three years, the parking lot at 114 Mulberry Street has become the centerpiece of the Little Italy Street Art Project, a collection of murals and installations that stretches along Mulberry from Canal to Broome streets. Now, like seemingly every other vacant property in lower Manhattan, it will soon be filled with apartments.
After two years of negotiations, Related Companies has reached a deal to lease 15 contiguous floors, or 850,000 square feet, to BlackRock, the investment management corporation, at its planned 2.9-million-square-foot, 985-foot-tall office tower 50 Hudson Yards. The building is located along Tenth Avenue, between West 33rd and 34th streets, in the Hudson Yards district.
Renderings of the final design have been revealed for New York University’s 23-story mixed-use building planned at 181 Mercer Street, located between West Houston and Bleecker streets in Greenwich Village. The academic facility, as YIMBY reported in October, will encompass 914,064 square feet and rise 275 feet in height, per the latest building applications, which the Buildings Department has not yet approved. Design firms KieranTimberlake and Davis Brody Bond are the architects.
Another one of Bushwick’s empty lots is becoming a new apartment building. YIMBY has the first look at the project at 16 Charles Place, a dead-end block off Myrtle Avenue that’s covered in murals.
