Back in October of 2015, the Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School, located in the five-story building at 147 St. Nicholas Avenue, between West 117th and 118th streets in Harlem, filed applications for an expansion into the vacant corner lot on 118th Street. The five-story, 37,907-square-foot structure would be transformed into a six-story, 51,517-square-foot building through various vertical and horizontal expansions. Harlem+Bespoke now has an on-site rendering of the project, being designed by BL Companies Inc. Once completed, the building will include a cafeteria, classrooms, muti-purpose rooms, administration offices, and an auditorium.
Back in June of 2014, Starwood Capital Group and Naftali Group filed applications to convert the 13-story, 145-unit rental building at 275 West 10th Street, in the West Village, into 38 condominium units. Now, the developers have secured a $65.9 million loan for the project, dubbed the Shephard, according to The Real Deal. The property sits within the Greenwich Village Historic District Extension, so any exterior alterations to the structure would have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. As filed, the building will see its residential space reduced from 139,547 to 136,948 square feet. The condominium units will average a very spacious 3,604 square feet apiece, some of which include penthouse and duplex units. Amenities include a library, a spa, a recreation room, and a fitness center. Beyer Blinder Belle is the design architect and Gachot Studios is the interior designer. The conversion is expected to be complete in 2017.
William Schneider, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit residential building at 41 Garnet Street, on the southern end of Carroll Gardens, located a blocks from the Smith-9th Streets stop on the F/G trains.

Ruslan Goychayev’s Brooklyn-based RSLN Architecture is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a single-story garage. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.

It was in November of 2014 when YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 12-story, 49-unit residential project at 261 West 25th Street, in Chelsea, when the structure was nine stories above street level and still rising. Since then, construction has since wrapped up entirely on the 128,259-square-foot building, dubbed the Seymour, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The condominium units will average a very spacious 2,618 square feet apiece, and amenities include recreational rooms and lounges, a gym, an outdoor area, storage space, and a 25-space bicycle storage room – all in the cellar – a library on the ground floor, and an outdoor rooftop terrace. McGinley Design and Rottet Studio are responsible for the interiors, and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the design architect. Naftali Group is the developer and occupancy is expected imminently.
