City agencies have announced the development of an affordable housing project dedicated to low- and extremely low-income senior citizens in the Soundview section of The Bronx. Known as Casa Celina, it is a collaboration between NYCHA and the city’s department of Housing Preservation and Development with private entities Xenolith Partners, The Kretchmer Companies, ELH Mgmt., and the Jewish Association Serving the Aging, known colloquially as JASA.
Permits have been filed for a 29-story mixed-use building at 221 West Street in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Located between Freeman Street and Eagle Street, the corner lot is eight city blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. Brookfield Properties is listed as the owner behind the applications, and is responsible for several other mixed-use properties in Greenpoint Landing.
Progress at 43-12 Hunter Street, now referred to as Triangle, has been moving along since the residential building recently topped out over Long Island City. The exterior curtain wall panels are about to reach the main setback near the halfway point of the 18-story reinforced concrete tower. The project is being designed by SLCE Architects and developed by Rockrose Development, which purchased the site for $1 million all the way back in 2006. Slade Architecture is in charge of the interior design.
Construction has topped out at 828 Park Avenue, a five-story residential project in Hoboken, New Jersey. Designed by Nastasi Architects and developed by Hudson Place Realty, the property is located between Eighth Street and Ninth Street, near Hoboken High School and Stevens Institute of Technology. The site was once a narrow vacant lot between two existing brownstones. The new building’s design integrates with the adjacent white-colored structure to the north, resulting in a singular edifice that preserves the original facade.
The Yonkers Industrial Development Agency (IDA) has released renderings of two forthcoming affordable housing developments—Dayspring Commons and 9-11 Riverdale Avenue—that will comprise a total of 92 rental homes and a small amount of commercial area.
