When we last brought you news from the corner of Broadway and West 80th Street, there were plans for a 14-story mixed-use building at no. 2230 (a.k.a. 2228-2236 Broadway). Now, things have changed, and work is underway on a taller building with more residential units and a bit of a different look.

Over a year ago, applications were initially filed for a 36-story, 198-unit mixed-use building planned at 38-46 West 33rd Street in Midtown South, and then YIMBY revealed a rendering of the project this past summer. Now, The Torkian Group has landed a $105 million construction loan for their 220,000 square-foot building, Commercial Observer reports. As previously reported, 198 residential units will spread across 160,029 square feet of residential space, with units averaging roughly 800 square feet, and ground-floor retail will measure 5,872 square feet. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing, and excavation work is currently underway.
Last summer, YIMBY revealed renderings for Benjamin Ohebshalom’s planned 20-story, 82-unit rental building at 501 East 74th Street, on the Upper East Side, and then YIMBY reported the structure’s topping out last February. Now, per DNAinfo, the façade is being installed, and move-ins are expected this November. The building is being dubbed The Rose Modern, and leasing is expected to kick off next month. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the project’s architect.
A landlord accused of harassing his rent-stabilized tenants at another Lower East Side building has filed applications for a 10-story residential project at 255 East Houston Street.
In April, YIMBY revealed the Pestana Hotel planned for 338 West 39th Street, the latest commercial venture from prolific hotelier Sam Chang. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 25-story hotel on the lot between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
