YIMBY went on a hard hat tour of 100 Vandam Street, where a 131-year-old coal power plant is being converted to a new residential structure that will rise above the existing load-bearing masonry podium. The site is located in the booming Hudson Square neighborhood at the corner of Vandam Street and Greenwich Street. The construction project, which is being designed by COOKFOX and developed by Jeff Greene, will bring the total height of the new 25-story building to 330 feet.

Space 4 Architecture, aka S4Architecture, has released renderings showing a new design for 226-232 East Broadway on the Lower East Side. The original plans called for two residential towers that would rise with identical architectural languages and surround a landmarked pre-war structure at 228 East Broadway. Now the project shows only one modestly tall building rising to the east of the former nursing home. The Ascend Group is the developer of the site.
The major renovation of lobby and entry areas within 55 Broad Street is now complete and New York YIMBY has exclusive new images from Rudin Management Company.

Updated security features include electronic turnstiles, reception seating, and increased street-level visibility both from outside and within the building.
