Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the rise of the first of two cranes that will be used to build One Vanderbilt, on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, in Midtown East. Now, the second crane has been installed, and the first photos of the supertall’s facade have also been revealed. While glass won’t appear on the actual tower for another year or so, the initial images are very promising for what will become the tallest skyscraper in the neighborhood.
Back in January, YIMBY reported on new building applications for a large development site at 3514 Surf Avenue, in Coney Island, Brooklyn. Now, thanks to a tipster, we have the reveal for the project, which is being developed by John Catsimitidis’ Red Apple Group.
Coney Island is currently seeing a resurgence in development both big and small, and today, YIMBY has the first details for a proposal by Arker Companies for a new building at 2828 West 28th Street, submitted in a rezoning dubbed Sea Park North, in the northern blocks of the neighborhood.
The Lower East Side‘s gradual densification continues apace, and new building applications have now been filed for 330 Grand Street, between Orchard and Ludlow Streets. The new structure will rise six floors and total 11,000 square feet of residential space, to be divided between twelve units. At over 900 square feet apiece, that means condominiums are possible here, though rentals could also result. Martin Kapell of Think Architecture + Design is the site’s architect, Daniel Wise of 330 Grand Street LLC is listed as the developer, and permits for demolishing the existing structures, which span 330-332 Grand Street, were filed this May.
The East New York development boom continues to gain steam, and new building applications have now been filed for a site somewhat removed from the majority of the neighborhood’s new construction, at 975 Liberty Avenue. The lot is located just to the south of Cypress Hills’ boundaries, two blocks north of the A and C trains’ Euclid Avenue stop. The construction area will measure just shy of 37,000 square feet, which will include a nine-car parking garage on the first floor, 478 square feet of commercial space, and 23,125 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 35 units. At an average size of 650 square feet, rentals are all but guaranteed. Vasilious Georgopolous of Panagis Georgopolous Architect PLLC is the architect of record, and Sal Mendolia of Liberty for All LLC is listed as the developer. An existing two-story structure must first be demolished.
