Foundation work is now underway on phase two of Provost Square, a two-towered mixed-use development half-way complete in downtown Jersey City. The first phase of the project, The Morgan at Provost Square, at 160 Morgan Street, opened for occupancy in late 2015. It rises 38 stories and contains 420 residential units, as well as 13,020 square feet of retail. The second phase will consist of a 28-story tower with 505 residential units and retail space. Photos of the phase two site can be seen posted to the YIMBY Forums.
Construction is now seven stories above street level on the 42-story, 429-unit mixed-use building under development at 212 East 44th Street (a.k.a. 222 East 44th Street), in Midtown East. The structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project will measure 361,354 square feet and rise 556 feet above street level.
The northwestern Bronx has become one of the few places in New York City where developers can build apartments relatively cheaply. Now prolific affordable developer Dunn Development has filed plans for a project in Norwood, a neighborhood just north of Bronx Park.
An updated rendering has been revealed for the phase two retail portion of Neptune/Sixth, a multi-building, mixed-use development located at 532 Neptune Avenue and 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, in Coney Island. The first phase, now under construction, consists of a seven-story, 161,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building. The second phase of the project will be a single-story, 90,000-square-foot retail building. CVS Pharmacy recently signed a lease for 11,300 square feet in the building and construction is set to begin later this fall.
Wilfred Realty Corp. has filed applications for an eight-story, 190-unit mixed-use complex at 1880 Bathgate Avenue, in the West Bronx’s Tremont section. The 173,627-square-foot project will include two eight-story components, a western one along Bathgate Avenue and an eastern one along Firefighters Boulevard. There will be 21,820 square feet of retail and 2,460 square feet of community facility space across the ground floors. The residential units above should average 786 square feet apiece, indicative of (likely below-market-rate) rental units. SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The 36,101-square-foot assemblage consists of multiple single- and two-story warehouses. Demolition permits were filed in August. The Tremont station on Metro-North Railroad is three blocks away.
