Back in 2013, Curbed reported that Sandy’s damage had been sufficient to bulldoze an existing structure at 401 West Street, on the western edge of the West Village. Now, new building applications have been filed for the site by Hill West Architects, for a seven-story and 11-unit project totaling almost 15,000 square feet of residential space. That will translate into an average unit size of almost 1,400 square feet, which is almost a sure sign of condominiums. Denis Astakhov of 401 West Property Owner LLC is listed as the developer (aka Galahad Advisers).
Last September, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 112 East 11th Street, in the heart of the East Village, which is being developed by the Lightstone Group. EVGrive posted a preliminary image for the site back in February, and now, we have the first full rendering for the project, which is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects.
As the Lower Lower East Side continues to see additional proposals for new supertall towers, the neighborhood’s first legitimate skyscraper is approaching its topping-out, per the latest from Tectonic. Extell’s tower at 252 South Street, aka One Manhattan Square, is about ten floors away from its uppermost 72nd floor, which will stand 850 feet above the streets down below.
YIMBY has reported extensively on Lightstone’s impending condominium tower coming to 130 William Street, in the heart of the Financial District. Plans have evolved substantially since initial building applications were filed back in March of 2015, and initial plans for a mixed-use building with a substantial hotel component were dropped for the all-condominium version as of early 2017. Demolition of the site’s extant structures has since been completed, and now excavation is making quick headway, as per the latest photos from rbrome.
YIMBY last reported on 40 Tenth Avenue when new building applications were filed for the site, in November of 2015. Now, with demolition of an old three-story warehouse complete, construction on the office project is finally getting underway. The progress on excavation has been substantial, and piling and caissons are also beginning to appear. Jeanne Gang Architects is behind the design, and the latest photos come from YIMBY Forum user JC_Heights.
