Permits have been filed for a four-story commercial building at 1905 Third Avenue in East Harlem, Manhattan. Located at the intersection of 105th Street and Third Avenue, the lot is a couple blocks north of the 103rd Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Jeff Sutton is listed as the owner behind the applications. The commercial real estate developer is known for his many retail properties along the shopping corridors of Fifth Avenue, 34th Street, and Times Square.
A copper-colored, terra cotta and glass facade has emerged at 529 Broadway, on the corner of Spring Street in Soho. Tectonic has the latest look at the construction.
In early 2015, Wharton Properties and General Growth Properties (GGP) acquired, for $1.75 billion, the Crown Building – a 25-story, 385,600-square-foot multi-use commercial building – at 730 Fifth Avenue, located on the corner of West 57th Street in Midtown. Now, it’s been disclosed that developer Michael Shvo and Russian investor Vladislav Doronin are planning to acquire a large portion of the building for a mixed-use conversion project, the New York Post reported. The duo want to convert the upper floors of the current office building into an Aman hotel and 23 ultra-luxury condominium units. Wharton and GGP recently bought out the last remaining office tenant. The current owners plan to lease the remainder of the property that isn’t sold to Doronin and Shvo as retail. The retail space is currently being newly renovated and is expected to take up at least the first four above grade levels. Late last year, it was reported that Bulgari signed a 15-year lease on the ground floor.
In July of 2015, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the the six-story, 202,361-square-foot commercial-retail project being built at 100 West 125th Street, located on the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard, in Harlem. That October, the structure topped out, and now, the building’s façade appears to be nearly complete, according to Harlem+Bespoke. All six floors, plus the cellar level, will be utilized as retail space, and a number of retailers have already signed leases in the building. Notable tenants include Whole Foods Market, American Eagle, Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory, Raymour & Flanigan, Olive Garden, and TD Bank. Wharton Properties, headed by Jeff Sutton, is the developer, while Staten Island-based Gambino + LaPorta Architecture is behind the design. Opening can probably be expected in the coming months.
In September of 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved the design for a six-story, 44,243-square-foot commercial-retail project at 529 Broadway, located on the corner of Spring Street in SoHo. The site, along with much of the neighborhood, is located within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, which means projects are subject to LPC approval. Construction at the building, technically an expansion of an existing two-story structure, is now wrapping up, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The new structure has already received a majority of its curtain wall and work is likely now focused on the interior. When it opens later this year, the entire building will be leased as retail space. BKSK Architects designed the building, and Aurora Capital Associates, Wharton Properties, Thor Equities, and the Adjmi family are the developers.
