A desolate lot in The Bronx’s Mott Haven neighborhood is about to sprout a seven story mixed-use structure. Applications filed with the DOB show the new building will have 30,796 square feet of total construction area, within which, there will be 7,493 square feet of space for a community facility in the form of an ambulatory diagnostic center on floors two and three. There will also be 18,136 square feet of commercial space, to be divided between 73 hotel rooms, which will average under 250 square feet apiece. Michael Kang Architect, PC, is designing, and Manny Chadha of Vertu Hospitality LLC is the developer.
As construction begins to make headway on new residential towers at 15 East 30th Street and 277 Fifth Avenue, just to the south, an actual supertall is in the works at 262 Fifth Avenue. Applications for the site were filed back in September of 2016, before it got a slight height boost to 1,001 feet. Now, demolition is complete on the site’s old occupant.
Multi-block redevelopments are becoming commonplace in the formerly industrial areas that border the burgeoning residential blocks of northwest Brooklyn, and now another major site has been added to the list. Yesterday, City Planning approved the Pfizer redevelopment in South Williamsburg, which will see the derelict 4.2-acre site completely revitalized.
118 Fulton Street has been making swift progress over the past few months, and now, the 752-foot-tall tower has officially topped-out. Foundation work was still ongoing just over one year ago, with the 66-story building’s rise since then clocking in at an impressive pace of over one floor per week. SLCE Architects is behind the design for the project, which is being developed by Carmel Partners.
Back in March of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications for an assemblage at 200 East 21st Street, on the corner of Third Avenue, in Gramercy. Now, the new project, designed by BKSK Architects, has topped out 21 floors and 210 feet above the streets below. Alfa Development is behind the building, which will have 67 condominiums, and opening day is about a year out.
