Construction is moving along for the 22-story residential building at 511 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The project is in Yorkville, and is just two avenues away from the brand new 86th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. Sky Management is responsible for the development.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on the Request for Proposals (RFP) launched by the city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) for the development site at 425 Grand Concourse, in Mott Haven. Now, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected a development team for the 30,000-square-foot site, located on the corner of East 144th Street, Politico New York reports. Trinity Financial and MBD Community Housing Corporation will build a 24-story, 241-unit mixed-use building. The 300,000-square-foot tower will contain only below-market rate rental apartments, in addition to a charter school, a medical facility, community space for cultural and social programs, and a supermarket. It will also be the largest Passive House project in the city. Garrison Playground, located immediately to the north, will be rehabilitated. The city is expected to finance the project, which must first journey through the city’s Urban Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) process. ULURP is scheduled to begin in early 2017.
A few months ago, the six-story, 10-unit Passive House residential building under construction at 210 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, was beginning to get its façade installed, and now the structure is fully clad in brass tiles. Brownstoner has the latest photos of the structure, which measures 28,718 square feet in total. All of the building’s windows have been put in place and exterior construction has largely been completed. SBLM Architects is behind the design and NAVA Companies is the developer. As previously reported, the residential units should average a spacious 2,020 square feet apiece, and amenities listed on the Schedule A include a gym and eight parking spaces in the cellar, recreational space on the ground floor, and rooftop terraces. Occupancy is expected within the next few months.
In October of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Nava Companies’ planned seven-story, 10-unit Passive House residential building at 210 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, and early in 2015, the building topped out. Surprisingly, a brass tile façade is now being installed, Pardon Me For Asking reports, which is an exciting departure from the earlier renderings we released. The residential units will average a spacious 2,020 square feet apiece, and recreational space and a gym will be located in the cellar and ground levels. SBLM Architects is the architect of record. Opening can probably be expected later this year.
In July of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 34-unit residential building at 542 West 153rd Street, in Hamilton Heights, and now the project is under construction and four stories above street level, per Harlem+Bespoke. Synapse Development Group is developing the building, with the intention to achieve Passive House standards. Units will average 865 square feet, and East Village-based Chris Benedict is designing. Completion is currently expected in the spring of 2016.
