Permits have been filed for a ten-story residential building at 2150 Second Avenue in East Harlem, Manhattan. This differs from an earlier proposal for the site in 2014, measuring about twenty feet shorter. The site is three blocks away from the 110th Street subway station, serviced by the 6 trains. Mark NG will now be responsible for the development.
Habitat for Humanity NYC has officially completed their Dean Street Residences in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn. Located at 203 Mother Gaston Boulevard, apartments are now available to individuals and households earning 50-80 percent of New York City’s average median income.
With several more floors left to add, Jersey City’s 99 Hudson Street is almost at its final pinnacle 900 feet above street level. While the crown remains to be completed, it has now officially surpassed 30 Hudson Street, the 781-foot home of Goldman Sachs two blocks to the south, which has held the title of the tallest skyscraper in New Jersey since its completion in 2004.
Construction of 215 Pearl Street has largely gone unnoticed but has made significant progress. Since our last update in July of 2016, the building has topped out, façade installation is all but complete, and construction of the five-story reflective lobby is underway. The 39-story structure will be adding 320 hotel rooms to the Financial District neighborhood thanks to the developers, the Lam Group.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 438 Union Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is located half a block away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains, an area that is expecting a significant influx of similarly-scaled redevelopments over the next few years. Joel Schwartz of South Side Units is the developer.
