One block west of Downtown’s tallest residential building at 30 Park Place, another condominium tower is finally getting ready to rise. YIMBY reported on 45 Park Place’s initial building applications back in May of 2014, but it has taken three years to navigate both planning and financing. Now, foundation work is making headway, signaling the skyscraper should begin its ascent within the next few months.
Back in March of 2014, YIMBY first reported on new building applications for a site bound by Houston Street, Avenue C, and East 2nd Street, at 11 Avenue C. Now, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by BLDG.
Back in 2013, Curbed reported that Sandy’s damage had been sufficient to bulldoze an existing structure at 401 West Street, on the western edge of the West Village. Now, new building applications have been filed for the site by Hill West Architects, for a seven-story and 11-unit project totaling almost 15,000 square feet of residential space. That will translate into an average unit size of almost 1,400 square feet, which is almost a sure sign of condominiums. Denis Astakhov of 401 West Property Owner LLC is listed as the developer (aka Galahad Advisers).
Building applications have been filed for a vacant property at 3456 Conner Street, in The Bronx’s Eastchester neighborhood. The new structure will stand five stories tall, and will contain 127 hotel rooms spanning 52,305 square feet of commercial space. Raymond Chan Architects is designing the project, and Skyview Capital is listed as the developer.
A few blocks east of the Kings Highway stop on the B and Q trains, new building applications have been filed for 1669 East 19th Street, just to the west of the official boundary for Brooklyn’s Madison neighborhood. The eight-story residential structure will span 19,540 square feet, which will be divided amongst 29 units, averaging under 700 square feet apiece. That means rentals are likely. Genaro Ureata of Studio Gallos is listed as the architect, and Gavriel Sakaff of Agam Development, LLC, is developing.
