Last October, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building underway at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was five stories above street level. Today, the structure is roughly 10 stories in height and close to topping out, as seen in photos courtesy of Tectonic. Glass façade is also being installed on the first four floors of the Zaha Hadid-design building. Retail space on the ground floor will measure 11,183 square feet in the 188,696 square-foot project. The condominium units on the floors above will average 3,533 square-foot apiece. Ismael Leyva Architects is the architect of record and completion is expected later this year.
Brooklyn-based Kazzak Realty has filed applications to build a four-story, seven-unit residential building on the vacant portion of 490 Humboldt Street, in northern Williamsburg, located seven blocks north of the Graham Avenue stop on the L train. The new 7,751 square-foot building would be built on an irregularly shaped lot adjacent to an existing three-story, three-unit mixed-use building. The new structure, which would have a rooftop terrace, would have 6,032 square feet of residential space, with average units of 862 square feet apiece. Part of the existing structure, specifically the single-story rear portion, will be demolished. Brooklyn-based Philip Toscano is the architect of record.
Over the summer, Adam America Real Estate and MSD Partners picked up a taxi garage at 22-12 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City for $43.5 million. Now the developers have filed applications for their planned residential building.
Summit Development & Management Corp. is proposing a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 70 East Broadway, on the corner of Roosevelt Boulevard in Long Beach, located on Nassau County’s south shore barrier island. The project requires five separate variances before it can be built, according to the LI Herald, one of which includes a height variance. Ten three-bedroom condominium units would be built on the 11,000 square-foot plot if the Long Beach Zoning Board of Appeals approves the project, which it expects to review in March. The lot is currently zoned for multi-family buildings no more than four stories in height. The new building would replace a two-story, three-family home.
Back in August of 2015, the two-towered, 707-unit mixed-use development proposed at 60 South Broadway, in White Plains (in Westchester County), was making its way through the approval process. After nearly three years since the project was made public, the White Plains Common Council has unanimously approved the 858,000 square-foot project, Westfair reports. Two 24-story residential towers will sit atop a common 93,840 square-foot commercial base featuring retail and restaurant space. The residential units above will be rental apartments, 43 of which will be rented at affordable rates. There will also be roughly 30,000 square feet of outdoor public space. Finally, a four-story, 1,000-car parking garage will be built entirely underground. Westchester Pavilion, the largely vacant single-story retail complex, must first be demolished. Perkins Eastman is designing, and Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. and a branch of Miami-based Lennar Corporation are the developers.
