YIMBY stopped by 303 East 44th Street in Midtown East, the site of a planned 600-foot-tall residential skyscraper from ODA Architects and Triangle Assets. Located along East 44th Street between First and Second Avenues, the 88,000-square-foot development is designed to yield roughly 44 condominiums spanning between 1,000 and 2,000 square feet apiece.
New photos from the ODA-designed conversion of 10 Jay Street offer a first look at the interior of the boldly reimagined structure. Located on the shores of DUMBO, Brooklyn, the landmarked property was constructed in 1898 and originally served as the Arbuckle Brothers Sugar Refinery. In 1925 the building was converted to a winery, but by end of the decade, one of its masonry facades had been torn off and the exposed building fell into disrepair.
Today YIMBY has an update on progress, or lack thereof, for 303 East 44th Street, situated along East 44th Street between First and Second Avenues in Midtown East, which is tentatively set to stand 600 feet to its rooftop. The tower is being designed by ODA Architects and developed by Triangle Assets, with 44 condominiums spanning between 1,000 to 2,000 square feet apiece. Renderings were revealed nearly three years ago in 2015, however, since then, there has been no clear progress. The site is still home to two small red buildings, one of which is four stories tall, and the other standing three stories. It is unclear when they will come down, but it is most certain that they are still standing.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story community facility at 1892 Belmont Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. The site is ten blocks away from West Farms Square, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The Tremont Train Station is eight blocks away, serviced by the Harlem line of Metro North. Paul Gjonaj of M.P. Realty Group will be responsible for the development.
Triangle Assets has filed applications for two three-story, two-family residential buildings at 1433-1441 East 10th Street, in southern Midwood. They will each measure an enormous 15,200 square feet, which means the apartments will be very big. There will be 9,000 square feet of residential space in each, with one unit located on the ground floor and the second unit located on the second and third floors. Across both, there will be a total of five off-street parking spaces. Sandor Weiss’s Brooklyn-based firm Gelu Durus Musica is the architect of record. The 120-foot-wide, 12,000-square-foot assemblage is currently vacant. The Avenue M stop on the Q train is six blocks away.
