In January, news broke that New York University’s Langone Medical Center signed a lease for 55,000 square feet on three floors of the planned 14-story, 100-unit mixed-use project at 175 Delancey Street – Site 6 of the Essex Crossing mega-development – located on the Lower East Side. Now, construction is ongoing on the ground-floor of the building, The Lo-Down reports. This portion of the development will measure 177,950 square feet and will feature 100 senior housing units. In addition to the medical center, the project’s four-story base will include 6,000 square feet of retail, a 13,000-square-foot senior center with a coffee shop, a 24,000-square-foot education facility, and a 4,000-square-foot outdoor garden. Dattner Architects is behind the design, and Delancy Street Associates (L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, and BFC Partners) is developing. Completion is expected in 2017.

For close to a century, J. Josephs & Sons Co. has sold furniture and appliances out of three storefronts on Manhattan Avenue in northern Greenpoint. Now, the shops and their distinctive metal signage will bite the dust for a new apartment building at 1056 Manhattan Avenue.
Back in October of 2015, foundation work was wrapping up on the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use project under development at 520 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea. Since then, construction plans have been amended to build a slightly larger building, which is now up to the fourth floor and rising, as seen in photos taken by Tectonic earlier this month. The latest permits indicate the 315,586-square-foot project will stand 33 stories, or 367 feet, above street level (393 feet if you count the bulkhead). There will be 13,219 square feet of retail space across the ground floor, followed by 179 residential units (up from 174) that should average 1,250 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.
