Midtown-based Badillo Partners has filed applications for a three-story, 29,164-square-foot church, to be operated by Iglesia Pentecostal El Calvario, at 114 Suydam Street, in Bushwick, located two blocks from the Central Avenue stop on the M train. It will feature a lobby, an assembly room, classrooms, and a kitchen on the ground floor, followed by a house of worship, classrooms, and offices on the second floor, and finally meeting rooms, offices, and a rectory on the third floor. Peter Bafitis’s Chelsea-based RKTB Architects is the architect of record. The church’s former two-story building was demolished in January.
Rockrose Development is taking over Long Island City, and today, YIMBY has fresh renderings for the firm’s newly-topped-out 50-story tower at 43-25 Hunter Street, which has been named Hayden.
It’s been a while since we checked in on Time Equities’ project at 50 West Street, dubbed simply 50 West, in the Financial District. The 64-story, 780-foot-tall building topped out back in the fall of 2015, but work has been going on since winter 2014. Now, we have an exclusive time-lapse of its construction, produced by EarthCam.
The growing Orthodox population in northern Bed-Stuy needs more schools and daycares, and one South Williamsburg-based program is building a new location south of the Brooklyn Navy Yard to fill that need. The Williamsburg Infant and Early Childhood Development Center has filed plans for a six-story building at 430 Park Avenue.
A rendering for a new Lower Manhattan skyscraper by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen has appeared on the YIMBY Forums. The building is located on the corner of White and Centre streets, at 137 Centre Street, just to the east of TriBeCa. Juul-Hansen’s rendering would indicate the potential for a 60-story building on a 5,100-square-foot lot. The tower would be located on a site that has significant air rights within its own block, with 75,530 square feet remaining atop the landmarked Fire Engine Company No. 31 at 87 Lafayette Street, and an additional 81,940 square feet atop 139 Centre Street. If the existing nine-story municipal office building at 137 Centre is demolished, the available air rights would total 208,470 square feet. Per the EDC, “Negotiations around the 137 Centre Street RFP are ongoing, and this rendering does not accurately reflect the project under consideration. NYCEDC looks forward to announcing a developer selection in the coming months.”
