Façade installation is now underway on the upper floors of the 32-story, 440-unit mixed-use tower under development at 86 Fleet Place, located on the corner of Myrtle Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. Progress on the structure, which topped out in October, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits have the tower measuring 427,346 square feet and standing 384 feet to its pinnacle.
The New York City Housing Authority has filed applications for a three-story, 61,143-square-foot community center on the grounds of the two-tower, 510-unit Gerald J. Carey Gardens public housing complex in Coney Island. The new building will be built at 2920 West 23rd Street, immediately north of the western tower. The 62-foot-tall facility will contain multi-purpose rooms, club rooms, play rooms, a basketball court, and a community garden. Nelligan White Architects is the architect of record. The site is currently a parking lot.
An anonymous Delaware-based LLC has filed paperwork to amend previously granted building permits to convert the two-story commercial warehouse at 151 West Side Avenue, in Jersey City, into a 119-unit residential building. The existing warehouse is located between Fulton and Woodlawn avenues on Jersey City’s West Side. Part of the warehouse would be demolished, Jersey Digs reported. The project would also contain 118 off-street parking spaces. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment, which originally approved applications for a 116-unit conversion in the spring, must approve the changes. A hearing will be held on December 15.
In the spring, YIMBY unveiled new renderings for 70 Vestry Street, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed condo project under construction by the West Side Highway in Tribeca. Now we have a construction update on the 14-story building, courtesy of prolific photographer Tectonic.
Construction is three stories above street level on the eight-story, 83-unit residential building under development at 14-07 Broadway, located on the corner of 14th Street western Astoria. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed The Baron, will encompass 107,488 square feet and rise 80 feet above street level, not including bulkhead elements. The condominium residential units should average 878 square feet apiece. Lions Group is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is responsible for the design. An anticipated completion date is unknown, but late 2017 seems reasonable.
