YIMBY recently took a tour of West End & Eighty Seven, a recently completed residential building at 269 West 87th Street on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, between West End Avenue and Broadway. Designed by FXCollaborative, the 17-story, 215-foot-tall edifice features a detailed exterior made of intricately laid bricks, with patterns that delicately catch the sunlight against their warm-colored finish. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is handling sales, and Champalimaud Design is the interior designer.
Updated renderings from Morris Adjmi Architects reveal scaled-back designs for a residential expansion at 959 Sterling Place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building sits immediately in front of the Hebron Seventh Day Adventist School, originally completed in 1889 and designated a New York City landmark in 2011. Submitted design changes are a direct response to comments from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) following initial presentations in October 2020.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 638 East 169th Street in Morrisania, The Bronx. Located at the intersection of Boston Road and East 169th Street, the corner lot is also addressed as 1267 Boston Road. The closest subway transit is the Freeman Street station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Peter Bourbeau under the Lucky Angels LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 1238 Hancock Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of Hancock Street and Wilson Avenue, the corner lot is five blocks from the Haley Street subway station, serviced by the L train. Michaeli Ran under the 1238 Hancock LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
YIMBY spotted a couple of never before seen renderings for 267 Broadway, a 510-foot-tall mixed-use building proposed to be constructed in Tribeca. While previous iterations by Gene Kaufman Architect were last seen and revealed in February of 2018, the architecture firm reached out to say that they are no longer working on the project. As of now, The Roe Corporation was last heard to be the developer for the 42-story development. If built according to formerly announced plans, there would be 144,244 square feet of space and feature 37 residential units above an 80-room boutique hotel. The site is located between Chambers Street and Warren Street and is currently occupied by a five-story building.
