Sam Weisner, operating as a Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for two three-story, multi-family residential buildings at 1475 60th Street, in southern Borough Park, two blocks from the D train’s stop at 62nd Street. Each building will contain three units and the entire development will span 7,198 square feet; that translates into an average unit size of 1,200 square feet. Yevgeniy Mekhtiyev’s Brooklyn-based IMC Architecture is the applicant of record, and demolition permits were filed earlier this month to raze an existing three-story, three-family house.
Property owner Corey Sherman, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, two-unit residential townhouse at 217 West 122nd Street, in Harlem, located a few blocks from a slew of subways with stops at 125th Street. The building will rise on a vacant 12-foot-wide lot and will measure 3,502 square feet. Both residential units will be duplexes and should split the building relatively evenly, taking up two floors each. Queens-based Panagiotis Vikatos is the architect of record, and another unassociated six-unit building is also planned next door.
Exterior completion is approaching for one of the most dramatic additions to the Downtown skyline in decades. The Helmut Jahn-designed residential skyscraper at 50 West Street reached its full height of 784 feet in September. As of today, most scaffolding has been removed from the crown, revealing a slanted concrete halo. The elegant concrete band will soon be obscured by a cocoon of curvy glass, which is being installed only nine floors below.
As the administration’s East New York rezoning marches through the public review process, small market-rate developments are growing on the neighborhood’s outskirts, away from the rezoning area south of Atlantic Avenue. One such project is in the works in Cypress Hills, the northern section of the neighborhood that stretches from Atlantic up to the acres of cemeteries along the Brooklyn-Queens border.
The flatiron-shaped facade at 10 Sullivan Street in Soho has most of its hand-laid Norman bricks and curved glass, and workers are busily installing bathroom tile and gas fireplaces. The building will eventually top out at 16 stories and hold 22 condos on a triangular lot wedged between Sullivan Street, 6th Avenue, Spring, and Broome Streets.
