This week New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission granted approval to construct a new mixed-use office building at 3 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, following repeated proposals from Real Estate Equities Corporation (REEC) and Morris Adjmi Architects. Located on the corner of Third Avenue and St. Mark’s Place, the development caused contention over its proposed alterations to an adjacent historic landmark at 4 Saint Mark’s Place known as Hamilton Holly House.

A new rendering has been revealed for 1230 Madison Avenue, an upcoming 20-story building on the Upper East Side. Located on Carnegie Hill by the the southwestern corner of Madison Avenue and East 89th Street, the site is on the same block as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and just six blocks away from the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The architectural language and style easily identifies it as the work of Robert A.M. Stern Architects.
Morris Adjmi Architects will appear yet again before the Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to construct a new mixed-use office development in the East Village. Located at 3 St. Mark’s Place, the property is positioned on the corner of 3rd Avenue and St. Mark’s Place. The draft proposals also include alterations to an existing structure at 4 St. Mark’s Place and the transfer of approximately 8,400 square feet of build rights to facilitate construction of the new office building.
One Manhattan Papaya King is no more, with demolition permits filed for the former single-story structure at 3 Saint Mark’s Place in the East Village in mid-March. Now, permits have been submitted for a five-story retail and office building in its stead. Saint Mark’s has a vibrant and thriving cultural legacy, featuring a diversity of retail and restaurants. This permit will bring a bit of modernization to the Third Avenue gate to the street. Real Estate Equities Corporation is responsible for the development.
Construction at 196 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan has reached a new milestone, with the installation of the building’s glazed-brick façade nearing completion. The 11-story residential building stands above Houston Street, beside Katz Delicatessen. It reaches a height of 120 feet, thanks to the purchase of air rights from the deli.
