A new proposal to the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission has come forward to expand 53 Mercer Street into the new SoHo headquarters and retail center for Dolce Vita. The design would refabricate the historic look of the three-story SoHo row house, while adding two extra flights out of pedestrian view. DXA Studio is responsible for the architecture.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 286 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Jay Street subway station, and seven blocks from Borough Hall, serviced collectively by the A, C, F, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Moshe Katlowitz will be responsible for the development.
Construction is now underway on a sprawling mixed-use development in Jamaica, Queens, designed by architects Edelman Sultan Knox Wood for a multi-agency development team, and Omni New York. Located between Jamaica and Archer Avenues at 92-23 168th Street, the project will debut as “Archer Green” and incorporate residential, retail, commercial, and parking areas.
Construction is moving fast for 425 Park Avenue, as is the curtain wall. The new Midtown office tower rising on Manhattan’s most prestigious thoroughfare saw steel begin climbing rapidly as soon as construction breeched the original partially-demolished extant structure. As it now stands, topping out appears imminent. The concrete core has reached the top floor, while the steel has 15 more stories remaining before its final 41st level. L&L Holding Company is responsible for the development.
Whether driving out from the Holland Tunnel, or taking I-78 East or Route 9 into Jersey City, the sight of Journal Squared, designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Development, is hard to miss from the highways. Perched on the high hills above the PATH train station to the west of the downtown district, the views and sights of both Jersey City and Manhattan are unbeatable from the top floors. For the past couple of months, work has significantly geared up on the second phase of the complex, which will imminently yield a 72-story residential tower standing 759 feet.
