A vacant lot in the Flatiron District is on its way to getting a new building. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved an application for a single-family residence at 34 West 21st Street.
In June, pawn shop owner Boris Aronov filed plans for a 220-foot-tall office building at 43 West 47th Street, in the block-long Diamond District in Midtown. Now, YIMBY has renderings for the development, which will replace a pair of smaller buildings between Fifth and Sixth avenues.
Excavation and piling work are underway on the site of a planned nine-story, 153,754-square-foot commercial building at 61 Ninth Avenue, located on the corner of West 15th Street in Chelsea. The site can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will rise 135 feet to its roof, or 175 feet if the bulkhead is included.
The 13-story, 19-unit mixed-use building under construction at 207 West 79th Street, on the Upper West Side, has topped out. Photos of the structure can be seen posted to the YIMBY Forums. The structure measures 71,578 square feet and rises 139 feet to its roof, or 158 feet including the bulkhead. Retail space will total 5,194 square feet on the ground floor, and the residential units, which will be condominiums, above should average 2,887 square feet apiece. Anbau Enterprises is the developer and Morris Adjmi Architects is responsible for the architecture. Completion is expected in the fall of 2017.
A Flushing-based property owner has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 67-09 and 67-11 185th Street, in Utopia, Queens. The buildings will measure 3,374 square feet each and, across both, the residential units should average a family-sized 1,266 square feet apiece. There will be a total of two off-street parking spaces. An Shen Ma’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 66-foot-wide, 5,050-square-foot property is occupied by a single-story house. Demolition permits were filed in September.
