A rendering has been revealed of the nine-story, 135-unit mixed-use building planned at 3003 West 21st Street (a.k.a. 2002 Surf Avenue), on Coney Island. Addition details have also emerged since new building applications were filed in April. The 118,743-square-foot structure will contain a mix of affordable and supportive housing, with 53 apartments to be rented at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, and 82 apartments to house homeless veterans. The units will all be one-bedrooms and should average 733 square feet apiece. There will also be 7,815 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Long Island-based Concern for Independent Living and Georgica Green Ventures are the developers. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect and completion is expected in 2018.

Last November, YIMBY reported that the 18-story, 288-unit mixed-use project at 7 West 21st Street, in the Flatiron District, topped out. Since then, much of the façade has been installed on both street fronts — the building spans the block between 21st and 22nd streets — as seen in photos taken by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 289,809 square feet. Both buildings will be connected up to the ground floor, where 13,076 square feet of retail is planned. The residential units above will be rentals, averaging 904 square feet apiece. Twenty percent (58 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Friedland Properties is the developer. Morris Adjmi Architects is the design architect, with the Stephen B. Jacobs Group serving as the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017. The new building sits within the Ladies’ Mile Historic District.
Developer Samy Mahfar has withdrawn an application to rezone a stretch of East Houston Street, on the Lower East Side, which would have introduced a commercial overlay for the targeted area, allowing for commercial-retail space to be built at street level, the Lo-Down reported. That means Mahfar’s planned 13-story, 63-unit mixed-use project at 255 East Houston Street won’t have ground-floor retail space. Instead, the developer plans to move forward with an as-of-right project featuring leasable community facility space. It’s unclear if withdrawing from the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) changes the residential portion in any way. Twenty percent of the apartments (13 units) were set to be rented at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Filings at the Buildings Department haven’t been amended since plans were first filed for a 10-story, 53-unit structure. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect. Demolition has commenced on the existing four-story building.
Construction is now at street level on the 19-story, 72-unit mixed-use building under development at 2230 Broadway, located on the corner of West 80th Street on the Upper West Side. The construction progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate a 123,456-square-foot, 206-foot-tall tower is in the works. It will have 22,231 square feet of commercial-retail space across the ground floor and two cellar levels, followed by residential units on the second through 18th floors. The units should average 1,609 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are likely in the works. Friedland Properties is the developer and Stephen B. Jacobs Group is behind the architecture. Completion is scheduled for the first half of 2018.
Construction is wrapping up on the 19-story, 15-unit residential building under development at 60 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side. The latest photo was posted to Instagram by the project’s design architect, Thomas Juul-Hansen. Dubbed Sixty East Eighty Sixth, the 55,407-square-foot structure includes one triplex apartment spanning the cellar through second floors, followed by a single unit per floor on floors three through nine, a duplex apartment spanning the 10th and 11th floors, another duplex spanning the 12th and 13th floors, one apartment per floor on the 14th through 16th floors, and, finally, a triplex penthouse spanning the 17th through 19th floors. The condominiums should average 3,730 square feet apiece. Amenities include a library, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, a wine room, private storage space, and storage for eight bikes. Glenwood Management is the developer and Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the executive architect. Occupancy is probably imminent.
