Foundation work is well underway and approaching street level at 160 Leroy Street, in the West Village, where a 12-story, 57-unit residential building is under development. The latest photo, posted to the YIMBY Forums, was taken by construction chronicler Tectonic. The project will encompass 184,935 square feet and rise 155 feet above street level. The residential units will be condominiums, ranging from 1,000 square feet to a 12,000-square-foot penthouse. The average apartment should measure 2,471 square feet apiece. There will also be a small 834-square-foot retail space on the ground floor. Ian Schrager, Vector Group, and Carlton Group are the developers. Herzog & de Meuron is the design architect and S9 Architecture is the production architect. Completion is anticipated in late 2017.
A Great Neck, N.Y.-based company has filed applications for two two-story, two-family houses at 710-714 Wortman Avenue, located on the corner of Pine Street, on East New York’s eastern end. The new buildings will each measure 3,780 square feet and their full-floor units should average 1,260 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations. There will be a total of four off-street parking spaces. Sion Hourizadeh’s Floral Park, N.Y.-based Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record. The 6,200-square-foot site is vacant.
When the early 19th century townhouse at 54 MacDougal Street in SoHo bit the dust, preservationists were outraged. However, YIMBY has new renderings of the project replacing the 1820 structure, and the design seems to fit in well with the rest of the pre-war block.
There are literally tens of thousands of buildings in New York City that have landmarks protection, either as individual landmarks or part of a historic district. However, there are fewer than 200 designated interiors. That number could soon go up.
Construction is seven stories above street level on the 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under development at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side. The latest photo was posted by a user on the YIMBY Forums. The most recent building permits indicate the project will eventually measure 71,578 square feet and rise 158 feet, including the bulkhead. There will be 5,194 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The residential units above, which will be condominiums, will range from two- to five-bedrooms, averaging 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design, both inside and out. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
