The 15-story, 211-unit mixed-use building under development at 145 Clinton Street, located on the corner of Grand Street on the Lower East Side, is now three stories above street level, as seen in photos shot by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project – which is one piece of the mixed-use mega-development known as Essex Crossing – will encompass 283,178 square feet. There will be 73,000 square feet of commercial-retail space across the cellar through second floors. Planet Fitness has already pre-leased 22,000 square feet on the second floor, and a food market is expected to take 30,000 square feet on the ground floor.
A 10-story, 114-unit mixed-use building is now six stories above street level at 1511 Bedford Avenue, in western Crown Heights. The construction progress can be seen a photo taken by prolific photographer Tectonic. The latest building permits put the structure at 109,887 square feet when complete. The ground and cellar levels will host 8,519 square feet of community space for a synagogue. The residential units, which will be rental apartments, should average 809.5 square feet apiece. Twenty percent of them, or 22 units, will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. Amenities include a 61-car underground garage, space for 71 bikes, private residential storage units, laundry facilities, a fitness center, and a roof terrace. Realty Within Reach is the developer and Issac & Stern Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
Queens-based Tim Kris Holdings Inc. has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 94-07 101st Avenue, in Ozone Park. The structure will measure 7,000 square feet and its residential units should average 700 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Each floor of the will host two apartments, and there will be storage space in the cellar. New Hyde Park, N.Y.-based John J. Glavic is the applicant of record. The 28-foot-wide, 2,800-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story office building. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. The Rockaway Boulevard stop on the A train is located three blocks to the south.
Brooklyn-based Candor Capital has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 476 Washington Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill. The structure will measure 6,533 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 1,250 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are in the works. The bottom unit will feature additional space in the cellar, while the top one will boast a roof deck. Boaz Golani’s Brooklyn-based Beam Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a dilapidated three-story townhouse that has been neglected for over a decade. Demolition permits haven’t yet been filed. Since the site is located within the Clinton Hill Historic District, the Landmarks Preservation Commission will have to approve both the demolition of the existing structure and the design of the new one. The Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the A/C trains is two blocks away.
Work is now underway to convert the dilapidated three-story (plus basement), 12-unit single-room-occupancy (SRO) building at 226 West 132nd Street, in Harlem, into four residential apartments. Construction on the building can be seen in a photo posted to Harlem+Bespoke. Permits at the Buildings Department indicate there will be 3,384 square feet of residential space, which means the project’s four full-floor apartments should average 846 square feet apiece. It’s unclear if the apartments will be condominiums or rentals. Renovations to the structure include a rebuilding of the interior spaces, foundational work, and new windows. Chi F. Lau’s TriBeCa-based architectural firm is the architect of record and David Lavipour is the property owner. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
