Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 531 Sixth Avenue in the Greenwich Village, Manhattan. The development will sit at the crossroads between Chelsea, the West Village, and Union Square. Stops from just about every Subway line are nearby, and Gemini Rosemont will be responsible for development.
The Upper West Side is typically off-limits to developments of major substance, which is why the recent news regarding progress on new-tallest-towers for the neighborhood at 200 Amsterdam Avenue and 50 West 66th Street is particularly positive. But in between those two towers, on the corner of West 61st Street and Broadway, YIMBY has reported extensively on 1865 Broadway, a 33-story residential tower designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill, which has now reached its rooftop.
Construction is moving along quickly at 30 East 31st Street, in Midtown South, Manhattan. Builders are working on the 40-story high-rise, which will yield views of the Empire State Building and East River. Architect Morris Adjmi is responsible for the design, taking influence from surrounding Gothic architecture for the façade, and the structure is now over halfway to its parapet.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for the updated design of 848 Lorimer Street, a six-story residential building in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. We last reported on the site in September, when the exterior featured arched masonry, and a modernist black metal façade with large windows. The new design raises the masonry up to the fourth floor, above which are two stories of curtain-wall glass windows.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 1673 Ocean Avenue, in Midwood, Brooklyn, which YIMBY can also reveal today. The site is seven blocks away from the Avenue M Subway Station, serviced by the Q train. The predominantly residential neighborhood is no stranger to developments of this height, especially along Ocean Avenue, but surrounding blocks are mainly populated with detached 2-3 story homes. ZHL Group is responsible for the development.
