Cantilevers are typically deployed on taller and bulkier buildings in New York City, but as construction techniques continue to improve, smaller structures are also increasingly beginning to feature overhangs. Such is the case at 80 East 10th Street, in the East Village, where Nava Companies’ new 10-story building is now three floors above street level, as seen in the latest photo by YIMBY Forumer rbrome.
Building applications have been filed for a seven-story development at 1622 East 15th Street, just below the southern edge of Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood, next to Sheepshead Bay. The project will span 15,920 square feet in all, with 16 units in total, translating into an average size of about 1,000 square feet. That means either rentals or condos are possible. There will be two units on the ground floor, three per level from the second through fourth floors, and then two apartments on each floor above that. Robert Lin of A&T Engineering is listed as the architect, and Chiu Wong is the site’s developer.
A few blocks northeast of the 63rd Drive stop on the E, M, and R trains, building applications have been filed for a new three-story development, on the site of two existing single family homes. The new structure will span 5,003 square feet, which will be divided between six units, for an average size of slightly over 800 square feet. That means rentals are likely. John Chen of John Chen Architect, PLLC is the project’s architect, and Regina Zhou of Rego Park Partner LLC is the site’s developer.
The existing building at 32 Second Avenue has stood on the corner of East 2nd Street since 1919, before being purchased and refurbished for Anthology Film Archives in 1979. Those revisions were designed by architects Raimund Abraham and Kevin Bone, and now Bone’s firm Bone/Levine Architects has submitted plans for a larger revision and expansion to the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which YIMBY can now reveal.
The Midtown supertall boom may be focused on 57th Street, but a few blocks to the south, the tower that started the frenzy is finally reaching into the skyline. 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as Torre Verre and rising adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art, is now well over halfway to its eventual 1,050-foot pinnacle. The photos were posted by Streetscaper to the YIMBY Forums.
