Construction has topped out and façade installation is nearing completion on the 35-story, 220-unit mixed-use building under development at 323 Tenth Avenue, located between West 28th and 29th streets in West Chelsea.

When the city rezoned Williamsburg in 2004, it hoped to encourage truly mixed-use buildings that knitted together apartments, office space, and light industrial businesses. Few developers have taken advantage of the commercial part of the zoning, instead choosing to squeeze as many apartments as possible onto a lot. Chelsea-based developer and architecture firm Flank decided to take a different path for their project at 60 South 2nd Street, where three quarters of the building will be devoted to office space.
Renderings have been revealed of the six-story, 77-unit residential building proposed at 1 Dekalb Avenue, located on the corner of Maple Avenue in White Plains. The project was initially proposed to the city back in September and the White Plains Common Council is expected to vote on it by the end of the year, the Journal News reported. The units would be rental apartments and the new building would include a 103-car underground parking garage.
An anonymous Midtown East-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 18,987-square-foot commercial building at 286 Lenox Avenue. That’s between East 124th and 125th streets in Harlem. The project will include 15,012 square feet of commercial space in total. Retail space will be located on the ground floor, followed by office space on the second through fourth floors. Staten Island-based Gambino+LaPorta Architecture will design the 58-foot-tall structure. The 44-foot-wide, 3,792-square-foot property is occupied by a two-story commercial building. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
