Among New York’s current major developers, Extell has perhaps the most notable portfolio when it comes to sheer height. Though Central Park Tower may become the tallest building in Manhattan by roof and Brooklyn Point will do the same for that borough, the firm’s penchant for prominence is best visualized through One Manhattan Square, aka OMS, which sticks out of its underbuilt neighborhood fabric like the Lower East Side’s own version of the Eiffel Tower. The skyscraper topped-out in September of 2017, but installation of the façade only wrapped this month. Last week, YIMBY took a tour of the building’s penthouse residences and sales gallery, and today we have a look at its almost-finished exterior, as well as an update on the ever-changing views from the top.
Located at 1640 Flatbush Avenue, plans for a new 145-foot-tall and 13-story mixed-use building to be designed by S9 Architecture and developed by SL Green Realty Corporation are now heading to the city for approval. Just a short walk from Brooklyn College, the new structure would have 115,056 square feet of new space, with 114 residential units. About thirty percent will be affordable, totaling 34, and the remaining 80 will let for market rates. Retail opportunity will be on the first two floors taking nearly 30,000 square feet.
A new proposal from AVO Construction has revealed an 11-story mixed-use structure that could rise from a two-lot assemblage at 1010 Pacific Street, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building would contain a mix of affordable and market rate residences, a commercial component, and a non-profit community arts center that would provide arts-based programming to local residents.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 227 Barker Avenue in Allerton, The Bronx. The site is five blocks away from the Pelham Parkway subway station, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. The New York Botanical Garden is also a few blocks away. Vyacheslav Faybyshev of Omni Build is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 421 Maple Street in East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Dan Mizrachi is listed as responsible for the development.
