New high-rises aren’t a frequent occurrence in Upper Manhattan, but one such project currently rising at 543 West 122nd Street, in Morningside Heights, now has its first renderings. The development will be known as Vandewater, taken from the original Dutch name for the area. Savanna is responsible for the development, and Curbed was the first to reveal the new images.
Construction has topped out for the 11-story condominium building at 22-18 Jackson Avenue, in Hunters Point, Queens. The complex will bring 182 new condominiums to the neighborhood, ranging in price from $660,000 to over $2.5 million.

Permits have been filed for a three-story residential building at 105 Battery Avenue, in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. The site is seven blocks away from the 95th Street subway station, end of the line for the R train. Jonico Construction & Development is behind the applications.
