Construction is nearing completion on 127 Leroy Street, a nine-story residential building in the West Village. Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Shibumi Development, the 124-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure topped out in early 2018 and the glass and stone curtain wall is now substantially complete, with only small portions on the top floors left to be enclosed. The site is bounded by Leroy Street, Washington Street, and Greenwich Street, and was formerly occupied by a one-story warehouse for Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, which has since moved to North Bergen, New Jersey.
CW Realty Management has filed proposals with the Department of Buildings to construct a residential property at 508 Graham Avenue in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. If approved, the structure will comprise 24,500 square feet. Area specifically dedicated to residential use would measure 20,264 square feet divided among 30 rental units, for an average scope of 675 square feet apiece.
Plans for 350 Park Avenue were revealed last year but we won’t see the supertall complete until 2027 at the earliest. In a 2019 fourth quarter earnings call last week for Vornado Realty Trust, the company confirmed that ongoing leases would conclude by end of 2023, which is the earliest it could begin to take down the current building and build the almost 1,500-foot-tall office skyscraper.
25 Kent Avenue in North Williamsburg, Brooklyn is designed by Hollwich Kushner with Gensler as the design development architect. The eight-story building features a distinctive stepped massing and spans an entire city block, yielding half a million square feet of office space with 15-foot ceilings. The project is developed by Rubenstein Partners and Heritage Equity Partners, who are continuing to fill the property and aim for full occupancy by the middle of 2021. 25 Kent Avenue is the first commercial office building to be constructed in the area in more than 40 years.
Exterior work is moving along on 329 Broadway, a 17-story mixed-use building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by Syndicate Architecture and developed by Parkview Management, the 195-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure spans 175,000 square feet and will contain 63 units, more than 59,000 square feet of retail area on the first two floors, and around 24,500 square feet of community facilities on the third and fourth floors. JLJ Capital recently provided $57 million in financing for the project.
