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.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY reported on plans for a nine-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 8 West 70th Street, on the Upper West Side. In December of that same year, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved the demolition of the site’s former four-story structure, as the site is located within the Upper West Side/Central Park West Historic District. Congregation Shearith Israel is now set to begin excavation imminently on the 55,027-square-foot project, the Wall Street Journal reports. The below-grade levels through the fourth floor will contain 20,013 square feet space for the religious institution, featuring classrooms, offices, a banquet hall, a library, and connections to the existing synagogue. The remainder of the building will contain full-floor condominium units. PBDW Architects is behind the design. The Board of Standards and Appeals granted a height variance for the project in 2008.
In January, YIMBY brought you an update on the planned 10-story, 64-unit residential addition atop the existing six-story, 144-unit rental building at 707-711 West End Avenue, between West 94th and 95th Streets, on the Upper West Side. Now, Curbed has the first official rendering that shows a glimpse of the top of the structure. The project, dubbed the Haswell, will add 155,420 square feet of residential space to the property. Condominium units should average a spacious 1,905 square feet apiece, and amenities will include private and communal outdoor spaces, a reading room, and a renovated lobby. The existing, largely rent-stabilized, building will also get extensive renovations, including new windows, and will have access to 5,000 square feet of new outdoor space on the second floor. SJP Properties and P2B Ventures are the developers and PBDW Architects is designing. Completion is expected in early 2018.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported that the Landmarks Preservation Commission – after several contentious sessions – approved redevelopment plans for the 12-story, five-unit residential building at 807 Park Avenue, between East 74th and 75th streets, on the Upper East Side. The 18,972-square-foot project includes rebuilding the existing structure but keeping intact the remnant of the original building’s façade on floors two through five. The current building consists of a 12-story, three-unit rental property, although the site is now being placed on the market for north of $30 million by its owner, Aion Partners, the New York Post reports. The approved redevelopment plans, designed by PBDW Architects and Higgins Quasebarth & Partners, include a triplex unit across the ground through third floors, three duplex units across the next six floors, and a triplex unit on the 10th through 13th floors.
