The Landmarks Preservation Commission is scheduled to hold a remote public hearing to review the exterior restoration of a landmarked structure and the construction of a 20-story mixed-use residential building in Tribeca, Manhattan. The existing landmarked property is located at 315 Broadway, and the new residential building will debut as 317 Broadway.
The Ronald O. Perelman Performing Arts Center has topped out in the World Trade Center complex as steel assembly continues. The 138-foot-tall Financial District structure is designed by REX with Davis Brody Bond Architects as the executive architect and developed by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
A large consortium of non-profit and private developers has revealed extensive proposals to construct two new affordable housing buildings on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. If the proposals and required zoning amendments are approved, the new structures would break ground at 151-165 Broome Street within an existing mixed-use complex referred to as Seward Park Extension.
The New York Appellate Court ruled in favor of a group of developers, including JDS Development Group, CIM Group, L+M Development Partners, and Starrett Corporation, to build four more towers along the Two Bridges waterfront on the Lower East Side. One Manhattan Square, a similarly-scoped neighbor, was completed in early 2019, and stands alone as the rest of development came to a halt despite approvals from the City Planning Commission in 2016. Yesterday, the ruling found the buildings described in the applications did not conflict with applicable zoning requirements, with all four Judges siding against Manhattan Borough president Gale A. Brewer and the New York City Council, which challenged the approval in 2018, arguing that the new construction required special permits and had to go through the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) process.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 42 Second Avenue in the East Village, Manhattan. Located between East 2nd and East 3rd Streets, the interior lot is two blocks north of the 2nd Avenue subway station, serviced by the F train. Gemini Rosemont under the Second and Second Property LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
