Permits have been pre-filed for a 19-story high-rise at 65 Franklin Street in Tribeca, Manhattan. The site is right on the corner of Franklin and Broadway, less than five blocks from the 1, 2, 6, N, Q, R, W, J, and Z trains, and seven blocks from the City Hall Park. Monzer Khafagy of HAP Investments is listed as the project executive responsible for the development.
Permits have been approved for the enlargement of 60 Charlton Street, which will yield a 12-story retail and office building in the Hudson Square neighborhood of Manhattan. The building was formerly known as 163 Varick Street. Kenneth Aschendorf of APF Properties is responsible for the development, after purchasing the lot for $65 million in July 2017.
Spotted a couple days ago, glass on the final section of One Manhattan Square, aka 252 South Street, has now reached the top of the 847-foot-tall tower, marking another major milestone of progress since work began back in 2015. Developed by Extell, and designed by Adamson Associates, it stands above the Lower East Side, and is directly adjacent to the Manhattan Bridge and the East River, along Cherry Street and Pike Slip.
The Lower East Side’s ongoing development boom has been substantial, with projects ranging from Essex Crossing to One Manhattan Square now nearing completion. But in between those two sites, on a seemingly forgotten block of East Broadway, plans are in the works for another two high-rises. YIMBY last reported on 226-232 East Broadway back in 2016, when the Ascend Group acquired the buildings and lots for $47.5 million. Today, we have the exclusive first look at what’s expected to rise on the site, with two towers of 20 and 36 stories apiece expected to flank the landmark former nursing home at 228 East Broadway.
This week, the Greenwich West condominium tower officially broke ground in Hudson Square, Manhattan, at 110 Charlton Street. The first renderings have also been revealed, showing an exterior mix of classical masonry tinged with industrial-inspired ornamentation, typical for the SoHo-adjacent neighborhood.
