Back during the summer of 2015, YIMBY brought you an update on the ongoing demolition of the five-story structure at 68 Trinity Place and the 25-story building at 74 Trinity Place, in the Financial District. Property owner Trinity Church has long sought to build a 500-foot-tall mixed-use condominium building at the site, but those plans have now been scrapped in favor of a 25-story, 145,000-square-foot mixed-use building with office space rather than apartments. According to The Real Deal, there will be 98,000 square feet of community facility space for the religious organization, fit with classrooms, a fitness center, a café, and meeting rooms. The office space will begin on the 10th floor. Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, who designed the latest residential proposal, will again be responsible for the design of the office plans.
In April of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a six-story, six-unit residential building at 64 East 1st Street, in the East Village, and construction began began on the project in August of 2015. EV Grieve now reports the structure has topped out. It now stands 60 feet above street level and measures a total 14,884 square feet. Each floor will contain a single condominium, except the ground-floor unit will have to share the floor with the residential lobby, and the sixth-floor unit will actually be a duplex apartment featuring a seventh-floor penthouse and private terrace. On average, the units will measure 2,183 square feet apiece. Dubbed 64 East, GF55 Partners is the designing the project and MGM Property Group is developing it. Completion can probably be expected later this year.
In December of 2015, foundation work was underway at the planned seven-story, 37-unit residential building at 50 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side. Now, Bowery Boogie reports the structure is two stories above street level. Once complete, the project will encompass 43,002 square feet and will have 1,836 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units, which are condominiums, will average 1,023 square feet apiece and Paris Forino is designing the interiors. Only six units remain up for grabs. Amenities will include, but are not limited to, a 24-hour doorman, bike storage, residential storage, a fitness center, and a rooftop recreation space. Issac & Stern Architects is behind the project design and DHA Capital is the developer. Completion is expected by the end of this year.
Back in the summer of 2013, construction restarted on the long-stalled seven-story, 20-unit mixed-use project at 324 Grand Street, on the Lower East Side, and now Bowery Boogie reports the building is finally nearing completion. It measures 38,808 square feet in total and includes 3,718 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The apartments above should average 685 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. James Cheng’s Flushing-based Urban Architectural Design is the architect of record, and George Lee, doing business as an anonymous Flushing-based LLC, is the developer. Construction has also since wrapped up on the six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 328 Grand Street. That building measures 10,935 square feet and includes 1,269 square feet of ground-floor retail. The full-floor units above will be condos and average 1,084 square feet each. CTM Properties developed the property and Lam & Lam Engineering is the architect of record. Occupancy for both projects is probable over the next few months.
Ironstate shelled out $150 million last year for a 49-year lease at 363 Lafayette Street in NoHo, right in the heart of New York University’s territory. Now, they’re planning a nine-story office building on the site between Great Jones and Bond streets.
