DCP Architecture has won preliminary approvals from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) to construct a new rooftop volume atop a historic three-story townhouse in Greenwich Village. Located at 224 West 10th Street, the project will not move forward until the design team modifies the proposed volume to further reduce visibility of the rooftop volume from West 10th Street and Christopher Street.
Construction is expected to begin in January on Melrose North, a residential development that will bring 171 units of supportive and affordable housing to 925 Courtlandt Avenue in South Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood. In a partnership between developer Bronx Pro Group and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), the $92 million project will be built on a vacant NYCHA waste facility site.
Exterior work is progressing on 425 Park Avenue, an 897-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown East and number 12 on YIMBY’s construction countdown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by L&L Holding Company LLC with Adamson Associates, the 47-story tower will yield 666,966 square feet of office space.
The final exterior touches are underway on The Prime, a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use project at 22-43 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and developed by Circle F, the 11-story building will yield 71 residences with interior design by Andres Escobar of Lemay + Escobar Architecture. Sales and marketing for the units is being handled by Ryan Serhant of The Serhant Team and Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York. The complex is located at the confluence of 46th Avenue, Jackson Avenue, and 23rd Street.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has issued a certificate of appropriateness for a rooftop addition, façade renovation, and cellar excavation at 238 East 15th Street in Gramercy, Manhattan. As part of the excavation, the building will include a 39-foot swimming pool and lounge areas that open out into a manicured rear yard.
