A branch of the Miami-based Lennar Corporation is proposing a twin-towered, 858,000 square-foot mixed-use development at 60 South Broadway, in White Plains, and according to Westfair, the plan has been sent to the Common Council after recently clearing the Planning Board. The base podium will contain amenity space and 95,000 square feet of retail, and above, two 24-story towers will have 707 rental units, 71 of which will be let at below-market rates. Perkins Eastman is designing, and construction is scheduled to begin in May 2016.
Last week, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new building coming to 70 Atlantic Avenue, in Cobble Hill, at a site formerly known as 339 Hicks Street. It currently houses a building for Long Island College Hospital, but that will soon be demolished to make way for an NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Clinic, which we can now reveal.
Fencing is up around the site of Staten Island’s planned New York Wheel, in St. George, and it appears construction is now in full motion, per the Staten Island Advance. In 2014, YIMBY brought you renderings of the 630-foot-tall Ferris wheel, which ‘New York Wheel LLC’ is developing and Starneth BV is designing (with Perkins Eastman). Completion is expected in the first half of 2017, alongside the Empire Outlets, also in St. George.
Earlier this week, YIMBY revealed the planned nine-story, 175-key Hoxton Hotel at 97 Wythe Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, and now the project’s designer, Perkins Eastman, sent along updated renderings showing slight tweaks in the façade. The 59,910 square-foot building will include some form of restaurant operations on the terraced second floor and the roof. Sydell Group is developing, and the site’s former single-story structure was demolished in late 2014.
Last year, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new hotel coming to 97 Wythe Avenue, between North 9th and 10th Streets, along a corridor that’s booming with new development. And now a tipster has sent YIMBY a rendering for New York’s first Hoxton Hotel, which is being designed by Perkins Eastman.
