This week, Sydney House debuted as Habitat for Humanity‘s largest completed housing project worldwide. Designed by Union Street Studios, the seven-story building is located at 839-843 Tilden Street in The Bronx and is the first project to be completed as part of New York City’s “Open Door” affordable homeownership program.

Work is moving along at 500 West 22nd Street, an eight-story mixed-use project in Chelsea that YIMBY first reported on in late April 2016. Alternately addressed as 197 Tenth Avenue, the structure is designed by Union Street Studio LLC and developed by Brantwood Capital and will yield eight residential units. The building is located at the intersection of Tenth Avenue and West 22nd Street not far from the High Line, and will span 33,662 square feet with 1,959 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and cellar levels.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission was unimpressed with a proposal to expand the home at 83 Horatio Street, in the West Village.
Rye Brook, N.Y.-based Brantwood Capital has filed applications for an eight-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 500 West 22nd Street (a.k.a. 197 Tenth Avenue), in West Chelsea. The structure will encompass 33,662 square feet and will feature 1,959 square feet of retail space on the ground and cellar levels. We can’t calculate the size of the residential units, which will likely be condominiums, but there will be a full-floor unit on the second floor, two on the third floor, followed by full-floor units on the fourth through sixth floors, topped by two duplex units across the seventh and eighth floors. The top apartments will also feature rooftop terraces. Norman Cox’s Brooklyn-based Union Street Studio is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed earlier this month for a four-story building (previously two tenement buildings).
A year ago, the Wall Street Journal broke the news that Habitat for Humanity was planning an affordable co-op in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx. Now the project is one step closer to reality, because plans have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 839 Tilden Street, between Barnes and Bronxwood avenues.
