The affordable housing lottery has launched for 33 Bond Street, a 25-story mixed-use building at 300 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Developed by TF Cornerstone and Handel Architects, the structure yields 714 residences and 55,000 square feet of retail across the ground and cellar levels. Available on NYC Housing Connect are seven studios, two one-bedrooms, and three two-bedroom apartments for residents at 40 to 120 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $24,103 to $172,920.
TF Cornerstone has acquired The Berkley, a 95-unit rental property in North Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located at 223 North 8th Street, the property comprises two mid-rise volumes connected by a shared podium and a 3,600-square-foot central courtyard.
Façade installation has begun on 595 Dean Street, a two-building mixed-use development in the Pacific Park complex in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Designed by Handel Architects and developed by TF Cornerstone, the complex will yield a total of 798 units between the 23-story West Tower and 28-story East Tower. Residences will come in studio, studio alcove, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom layouts, with 240 homes slated for affordable housing. The development will also contain 72,600 square feet of public open space, ground-floor retail area, a 455-car parking garage, and a Chelsea Piers Field House. TFC Pacific Park GC LLC is the general contractor and MNLA is the landscape designer for the property, which is bound by Pacific Street to the north, 550 Vanderbilt Avenue to the east, 535 Carlton Apartments to the west, and Dean Street to the south.
At number one on our year-end countdown is Skidmore Owings & Merrill‘s mixed-use supertall at 175 Park Avenue in Midtown East, which earlier this month gained approval from the New York City Council. Developed by RXR Realty and TF Cornerstone, the 85-story tower has been reduced in height from 1,642 to 1,575 feet, still enough to surpass Central Park Tower for the title of tallest building in New York by roof height. 175 Park Avenue will eventually rise from the site of the Grand Hyatt hotel between the 108-year-old Beaux Arts Grand Central Terminal and the 91-year-old Art Deco Chrysler Building. The structure will yield 2.1 million square feet of Class A office space; 500 Hyatt hotel rooms on the upper floors spanning 453,000 square feet; 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground, cellar, and second levels; and an elevated, 25,000-square-foot publicly accessible plaza space populated with artwork and views overlooking the surrounding Midtown streets.
Number 27 on YIMBY’s construction countdown is 52-03 Center Boulevard, a 587-foot-tall, 56-story residential skyscraper in the two-tower Hunter’s Point South complex. Developer TF Cornerstone recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the master plan, which is designed by ODA Architects with SLCE Architects as the architect of record and includes the 46-story, 475-foot-tall 52-41 Center Boulevard. The mixed-use property sits along the East River and is bound by Center Boulevard to the west, Borden Avenue to the north, 2nd Street to the east, and 54th Avenue to the south.
