Back in 2013, Curbed reported that Sandy’s damage had been sufficient to bulldoze an existing structure at 401 West Street, on the western edge of the West Village. Now, new building applications have been filed for the site by Hill West Architects, for a seven-story and 11-unit project totaling almost 15,000 square feet of residential space. That will translate into an average unit size of almost 1,400 square feet, which is almost a sure sign of condominiums. Denis Astakhov of 401 West Property Owner LLC is listed as the developer (aka Galahad Advisers).
Building applications have been filed for a vacant property at 3456 Conner Street, in The Bronx’s Eastchester neighborhood. The new structure will stand five stories tall, and will contain 127 hotel rooms spanning 52,305 square feet of commercial space. Raymond Chan Architects is designing the project, and Skyview Capital is listed as the developer.
A few blocks east of the Kings Highway stop on the B and Q trains, new building applications have been filed for 1669 East 19th Street, just to the west of the official boundary for Brooklyn’s Madison neighborhood. The eight-story residential structure will span 19,540 square feet, which will be divided amongst 29 units, averaging under 700 square feet apiece. That means rentals are likely. Genaro Ureata of Studio Gallos is listed as the architect, and Gavriel Sakaff of Agam Development, LLC, is developing.
The blocks surrounding the intersection of 50th Street and Lexington Avenue contain some of the densest real estate in all of Manhattan. Nothing makes that more evident than the new skyscraper being developed by Ceruzzi Properties at 138 East 50th Street, which will eventually stand 800 feet to its rooftop. The latest photos from Tectonic show that the tower has now passed its 40th floor, yet it will still take another few months before it begins to become visible on the Midtown skyline.
The Bronx has been making recent headlines, with plans for massive massive market-rate and affordable developments moving forward across several of the borough’s neighborhoods. Alongside the residential boom, the borough is now seeing sprinklings of commercial infill, and today YIMBY has the reveal for an office project that is set to rise at 775 East Tremont Avenue, in Tremont.
