A new facility for the Upper East Side’s Sephardic Jewish community is on the rise. The Moise Safra Community Center is under construction at 130 East 82nd Street.
The Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph, located at 856 Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, has filed applications for a four-story, 47,722-square-foot office building directly to its east, DNAinfo reported. The new building will contain 23,021 square feet of community facility space and will likely be occupied by the Diocese of Brooklyn. The ground floor will contain a lobby, a parking garage, a screening room, followed by office space on the second through fourth floors. An outdoor terrace will be located on the ground floor. Midtown South-based PBDW Architects is the architect of record. The site is vacant, with exception of a three-story, 8,133-square-foot rectory building. Demolition permits were recently filed.
In November, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the lifting and reconfiguration of the landmarked Palace Theater at 1564 Broadway. Now, thanks to EB-5 documents, we have full renderings of what the DoubleTree Hotel site surrounding it will look like once the redevelopment is finished.
A rendering has been posted on the site of the planned six-story, six-unit residential building under development at 11 West 126th Street, in Harlem. Foundation work is underway, according to Harlem+Bespoke. The structure will encompass 11,061 square feet and the project’s full-floor residential units should average 1,320 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities include private residential storage and a fitness center. The sixth floor apartment will also feature a private roof terrace. Midtown East-based Urban Artisan is the developer, while Midtown South-based Platt Byard Dovell White Architects (PBDW Architects) is behind the design. YIMBY first brought you news of the project when applications were filed in September of 2014. Completion is expected in spring of 2017.
In March, the first partial rendering was revealed of the nine-story, 64-unit residential addition planned to rise on the existing six-story, 144-unit (130 units are rent-regulated) apartment building at 707-711 West End Avenue, between West 94th and 95th streets, on the Upper West Side. The city’s Department of Buildings has since green-lighted the project, according to the Wall Street Journal, who also has revealed the first full rendering of it. Dubbed the Haswell, the 155,420-square-foot addition will contain 64 condominium units, each averaging a spacious 1,905 square feet. The current building will see renovations and upgrades, too.
