This past summer, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 18-story, 63-unit mixed-use building planned at 147 East 86th Street (a.k.a 1289 Lexington Avenue), on the Upper East Side. Now its developers – Ceruzzi Properties, Kuafu Properties, and Stillman Development – have filed applications with the Department of Buildings. The new building will span 229,751 square feet in total, and the cellar through the second floors will contain 26,718 square feet of commercial space. The NY Sports Club is expected to occupy two floors in the building. The third floor will contain residential amenity space, featuring lounge spaces, a children’s playroom, and a gym. The condominium units, ranging from two- to five-bedrooms and averaging 2,800 square feet apiece, will also begin on the third floor. Hellmuth, Obata + Kassabaum (HOK) is designing and completion is expected in 2018. Two existing low-rise commercial buildings must first be demolished. [The Real Deal]
It’s been months since we checked in on Heatherwood Communities’ high-rise residential project at 42-12 28th Street in Long Island City. As of July, it had reached 10 stories. Now, thanks to somewhat dramatic photos taken by our friend Tectonic, we can see that the 58-story building must be close to its final height.
East Harlem is booming with construction, and the newest addition to the neighborhood could rise at 208 East 119th Street, between Second and Third avenues.

It was back in 2014 that we brought you news of permits having been filed for a new hotel at 61 Bond Street (a.k.a. 252 Schermerhorn Street), between Schermerhorn and State streets, barely inside Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. Now, thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that the parking lot has been cleared and heavy equipment is at work.
