326 Avenue U

Six-Story, 10-Unit Mixed-Use Building Filed at 326 Avenue U, Gravesend

Brooklyn-based Scarano Realty has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 326 Avenue U, in central Gravesend. The project will measure 11,661 square feet. It will include retail space in the cellar and on a mezzanine level connected to the ground floor. The residential units will be located on the second through sixth floors and should average 626 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities will include six off-street parking spaces, storage for 20 bikes, a recreation room on the ground floor, laundry facilities, and a roof terrace. David Silberman’s Flushing-based firm is the applicant of record. The 2,227-square-foot property is currently vacant. The Avenue U stop on the F train is down the block.

20-Story, 290-Key AC Hotel Rises Above Street Level at 252 West 40th Street, Garment District

Construction has reached the third floor on the 20-story, 290-key four-star AC Hotel under development at 252 West 40th Street, in the Garment District section of Midtown. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits describe a structure that will eventually measure 120,489 square feet and rise 230 feet above street level. The hotel rooms will be located on the second through 18th floors and should average 415 square feet apiece. Amenities include a fitness center, a library, storage for 12 bikes, a restaurant on the ground floor, and a second restaurant on the 20th floor. OTO Development is the developer and Helpern Architects is behind the architecture. Completion can probably be expected in 2017.

Durst Plans New Mixed-Use Project with Affordable Housing at 1800 Park Avenue, Harlem

Over the summer, the Durst Organization entered into contract to acquire the 36,281-square-foot site at 1800 Park Avenue, located between East 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. The developer has since closed on the purchase for just under $91 million, the New York Post reported. Durst will abandon the ODA New York-designed 24-story, 670-unit mixed-use project (originally 32 stories and 682 units) envisioned by the Continuum Company, the site’s previous owner. Instead, completely new plans will be drawn up, presumably by a different architect. Regardless, the final plans will include a large affordable housing component. Roughly 600,000 square feet of mixed-use space can be built as-of-right. The project is still eligible for the 421-a tax abatement since Continuum technically conducted foundation work at the site.

28-Story, 104-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Rises to 13th Floor at 200 East 95th Street, Upper East Side

Construction has reached the 13th floor on the 28-story, 104-unit mixed-use tower under development at 200 East 95th Street (a.k.a. 1681 Third Avenue), on the Upper East Side. The construction progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the tower, dubbed the Kent, will eventually encompass 317,664 square feet and rise 392 feet to its pinnacle. It will have 13,225 square feet of retail space across the ground floor and the first cellar level. The residential units above, which will be condominiums, will range from two- to five-bedrooms, averaging 2,500 square feet apiece. Extell Development Company is the developer and Beyer Blinder Belle is behind the architecture. Champalimaud has been tasked with the interiors and West 8 is the landscape architect. Completion is expected in 2017.
