In between the 4 train’s 176th Street stop and the B and D trains’ stop at 174-175th St Station, in the Bronx’s Mount Hope neighborhood, new building applications have been filed for a sizable project that will have a total construction area of almost 110,000 square feet. That will be divided between a community facility component of 8,479 square feet, to be used by a basketball court and gymnasium on the ground floor, and 88,996 square feet of residential space, to be split between 103 units. With an average unit size of about 850 square feet, rentals are likely. The structure will rise 14 floors in all, and Aufgang Architects is designing, while Procida Companies is the developer.
Hudson Yards has been making headlines in recent months thanks to the substantial progress of Related’s development over and surrounding the Eastern Railyards, which is now yielding a forest of skyscrapers. But immediately to the northwest, another tower that’s been in the making for an equally long period of time may have just received a boost to become the tallest of them all. A new rendering of the Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard has surfaced, showing both an updated design for the building itself, as well as the addition of a 300-foot spire, that would make the supertall the tallest in the neighborhood.
In the southern bounds of Tribeca, to the southwest of the already-completed 56 Leonard, another major tower is nearing the finish line. 111 Murray Street has been topped-out for several months, and now its cladding is following, reaching about fifteen floors below the skyscraper’s pinnacle. The latest photo of progress comes from YIMBY Forumer Streetscaper.
Cantilevers are typically deployed on taller and bulkier buildings in New York City, but as construction techniques continue to improve, smaller structures are also increasingly beginning to feature overhangs. Such is the case at 80 East 10th Street, in the East Village, where Nava Companies’ new 10-story building is now three floors above street level, as seen in the latest photo by YIMBY Forumer rbrome.
Building applications have been filed for a seven-story development at 1622 East 15th Street, just below the southern edge of Brooklyn’s Midwood neighborhood, next to Sheepshead Bay. The project will span 15,920 square feet in all, with 16 units in total, translating into an average size of about 1,000 square feet. That means either rentals or condos are possible. There will be two units on the ground floor, three per level from the second through fourth floors, and then two apartments on each floor above that. Robert Lin of A&T Engineering is listed as the architect, and Chiu Wong is the site’s developer.
