An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications to renovate and expand the two-story, two-family house at 2019 West 6th Street, in Gravesend. The project would also build two new three-story, two-family residential buildings on either side of the existing structure, at 2017 West 6th Street and 2021 West 6th Street, respectively. The existing house will see its residential space increase to 2,425 square feet, while the two new buildings will each measure 3,388 square feet. Across all three buildings, the apartments should average a family-sized 1,251 square feet apiece. Two single-car, 300-square-foot garages will also be built. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record.
In September, the Landmarks Preservation Commission put the Morningside Heights Historic District on its calendar. The next step, a public hearing, was held on Tuesday, and dozens showed up. While there was some opposition, most who spoke rose to support designation of the proposed district.
Construction is now eight stories above street level on the 88-story, 391-unit residential tower under development at 15 Hudson Yards, located on the corner of West 30th Street and Eleventh Avenue, in the Hudson Yards district. Progress on the tower can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. Building permits indicate the 910-foot-tall project will eventually measure 980,274 square feet.
Façade installation is wrapping up on the 12-story, 33-unit mixed-use building under development at 100 Barrow Street, located on the corner of Greenwich Street in the West Village. Progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 82,638 square feet and stands 121 feet to its roof, not including mechanical elements. The residential units, condominiums, will spread across the ground through 12th floors, averaging 2,209 square feet apiece. Toll Brothers City Living, in partnership with Church of St. Luke in the Fields, is the developer and Barry Rice Architects is behind the design. The project is located within the Greenwich Village Historic District and is protected by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Occupancy of 100 Barrow can probably be expected in early 2017.
The blocks near the Barclays Center are filled with new construction, from townhouses to skyscrapers. Today, construction chronicler Tectonic brings YIMBY an update on The Hendrik, a modestly sized, brick-clad condo project that’s taking shape at the corner of Third Avenue and Pacific Street in Boerum Hill.
