A rendering has been revealed of the five-story, 84-unit mixed-use building planned at 73-87 Clay Street, located on the corner of Spring Street in the Lower Broadway section of Newark, New Jersey. Dubbed Spring Street Commons, it will host 7,500 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, in addition to a 21-car parking garage, Jersey Digs reported. It’s not known if the apartments will be condominiums or rentals, but the latter is more likely. The site is currently occupied by two low-rise industrial properties, both of which must first be demolished. Newark-based Paris Real Estate Inc. is the developer. The project was approved by the city’s Central Planning Board back in June of 2015.
Harlem-based Grid Properties is planning a four-story, 230,000-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed the Boulevard, at 77 West Post Road, located on the southern end of downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The latest plans call for 220,000 square feet of commercial-retail space, 38,000 square feet of which will be dedicated to a fitness center, Westfair reported. Twelve market-rate one-bedroom rental townhouses are also part of the plan, in addition to a 720-car parking garage. The project was presented to the city’s Common Council back in November, although it will eventually have to be approved by the city’s Planning Board. Philadelphia-based BLT Architects is behind the design. The assemblage is comprised of mostly vacant parcels and single-story commercial buildings.
Property owner Shultz Lael, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential building at 262 18th Street, in South Slope. The project will measure 5,569 square feet. It will host a single apartment on the ground floor, followed by a second, townhouse-style apartment across the upper three floors. A single, enclosed parking space is included in the filing. Akeeb B. Shekoni’s Jamaica-based Askon Architects is the architect of record. The 28-foot-wide, 2,800-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a three-story townhouse. Demolition permits have not been filed. The Prospect Avenue stop on the R train is located four blocks away.
Last week, Thorobird Companies filed plans for three affordable rental buildings in the Bronx. Now YIMBY has a rendering for one of them, a 12-story development planned for 225 East 179th Street in the central Bronx neighborhood of Mount Hope.
In the borderlands between Hell’s Kitchen and the Upper West Side, much of the new development ends up looking glassy and unremarkable. But today, YIMBY checks in on a new, loft-style building under construction at 351 West 54th Street, between Eighth and Ninth avenues, courtesy of prolific photographer Tectonic.
