Cantilevers are typically deployed on taller and bulkier buildings in New York City, but as construction techniques continue to improve, smaller structures are also increasingly beginning to feature overhangs. Such is the case at 80 East 10th Street, in the East Village, where Nava Companies’ new 10-story building is now three floors above street level, as seen in the latest photo by YIMBY Forumer rbrome.
In December 2015, Curbcut Urban Partners and Platinum Realty Associates acquired, for $12.07 million, the two-story industrial building at 38-01 Queens Boulevard, in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City. A rendering of the planned nine-story, 146,000-square-foot multi-use commercial building has now been revealed, via the Wall Street Journal. The project will include office space, retail, and a large amount of community facility space that will be able to accommodate medical offices, nonprofits, and other community-related tenants. The commercial building will also feature amenities like a rooftop deck and terraces. The developers plan to both lease and sell, as commercial condos, the space in the building. SBLM Architects is responsible for the design. Demolition permits were filed in January to knock down the existing building.
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.
Clarion Partners has purchased a 70 percent stake in the vacant 14-story, 182,000 square-foot American Stock Exchange Building at 86 Trinity Place, in the Financial District. Clarion payed $105 million to GHC Development, and the developer plans to convert the former office building into commercial-retail and a 156-key hotel. Retail space will be located from the ground floor through the fifth floor, while the hotel will be located on the upper floors. A restaurant will be built on the sixth floor. The building’s floor area will technically be expanded, thanks to expansions on the fourth floor, the addition of a fifth floor, and enlargements towards the top of the building. David Nicholson’s Hell’s Kitchen-based SBLM Architects is the architect of record. [The Real Deal]
