At the beginning of the year, an anonymous Brooklyn-based property owner filed applications for two three-story, six-unit residential buildings at 6-8 East 4th Street, in Windsor Terrace. Those plans have since been approved. Now, permits have been filed for two additional three-story, three-unit residential buildings to book-end the project, at 4 East 4th Street and 10 East 4th Street. The three-unit buildings will measure just under 4,400 square feet each, while the six-unit buildings will measure between 8,600 square feet and 8,800 square feet. Across all four, the units should average 1,105 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be a total of 12 off-street parking spaces. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. The 8,560-square-foot lot is currently vacant and located three blocks from the Fort Hamilton Parkway stop on the F and G trains.
Construction has reached the 15th floor on the 80-story, 815-unit mixed-use tower under development at 252 South Street, in the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side. The latest construction progress can be seen thanks to photos taken by Tectonic and posted to the YIMBY Forums. The most recent building permits indicate the tower, dubbed One Manhattan Square, will eventually rise 823 feet to its pinnacle and encompass 1,261,612 square feet. The ground floor will contain 23,167 square feet of retail space. The residential units, condominiums, will begin on the fifth floor. The apartments will come in one- to three-bedroom configurations and should average 1,364 square feet apiece. A separate 13-story, 205-unit component will contain exclusively affordable rental units. Extell Development Company is the developer and Adamson Associates Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2019.
The Lightstone Group is pushing forward with plans to knock down five tenement buildings in the East Village and replace them with a hotel that caters to millennials.

In May, schematic drawings offered a first glimpse of the Office of Metropolitan Architecture-designed 18-story, 133-unit mixed-use complex at 121 East 22nd Street (a.k.a. 122 East 23rd Street), in Gramercy. A rendering has now been revealed of the main 18-story tower portion, to rise on the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue, Archdaily reported. The latest building permits indicate the complex, comprised of 18- and 13-story components, will encompass 275,387 square feet, unchanged from May. There will be 12,125 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The units above will be condominiums ranging from studios to five-bedrooms, averaging 1,492 square feet apiece. Toll Brothers City Living is the developer and SLCE Architects is the architect of record. The block-thru site has been cleared of its four-story predecessors. Completion is expected in 2018.
