Friedland Properties has landed a $182 million mortgage to finance their planned 14-story, 239-unit mixed-use building at 7 West 21st Street, a vacant, thru-block property in the Flatiron District. A number of units will be affordable, and 8,210 square feet of retail is planned on the ground floor. Morris Adjmi Architects is designing, and the project was approved by the LPC in 2013.
Stephen B. Jacobs Group
Architecture firm Stephen B Jacobs Group has filed a new building application for a 21-story residential project at 145 Madison Avenue between 32nd and 33rd Streets in Midtown South.
Madigan Development has filed plans for a 15-story apartment building at 111 Varick Street, on the corner of Broome Street in Hudson Square, just west of Soho.
A few weeks ago, YIMBY revealed the SBJ-designed 13-story, 199-key hotel planned for 9-03 44th Road, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog reports demolition of the existing single-story warehouse is about to begin, with fencing now rising outside the old structure. No completion date has been formally announced.
Despite the construction boom that includes roughly a dozen towers of fifty floors or more, Long Island City is still relatively lacking in name-brand hotel projects. That is about to change in a big way, and YIMBY can now reveal the first renderings of the new Dream Hotel coming to 9-03 44th Road, just a block in from the East River waterfront. The project’s permit filings appeared this past December.
