An architect and his wife are finally planning to renovate a crumbling and long-vacant townhouse at 57 West 130th Street in Harlem.
Back in January of 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the eight-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 372 Broadway, in TriBeCa. Construction began on the building’s conversion in early 2015, and now YIMBY has new details and never-before-seen renderings of the condominium project, which goes by Six Cortlandt Alley. Curbed NY was the first to report on the project’s sales launch.
Financial District-based Glory Capital has filed applications to convert the 27-story, 92-unit dormitory at 67 Livingston Street, in Brooklyn Heights, into an office building. The 45,143-square-foot, 22-foot-wide building will host office space on the ground through 25th floors. The conversion will include amenities, specifically a fitness center on the second floor and a sky lounge on the 26th floor. The property’s square-footage will remain unchanged. The 182-student dormitory is current being used by the Art Institute of New York City, and their lease expires later this year. H. Thomas O’Hara’s Midtown South-based HTO Architect is the architect of record.
Property owner Joseph Molino, doing business as KDC of Staten Island, has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 18-20 Adams Avenue, in Grant City, located three blocks from the Jefferson Avenue station on the Staten Island Railway. Each will measure 3,970 square feet, with one residential unit on the ground floor and the second located across the second and third floors. Across both houses, the units should average a family-sized 1,546 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Michael Deruvo & Associates Architects is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed late last year to remove the site’s existing single-story home.
Steven Ferguson, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 131 Devoe Street, in northern Williamsburg, located around the block from the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The structure will encompass 20,008 square feet, and its residential units should average 996 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are probably in the works. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include a fitness center, a bike storage room, a parking garage on the ground floor, and a roof terrace. Midtown East-based Eisner Design is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide assemblage – spanning 131-133 Devoe Street – is currently occupied by two two-story houses.
