Back in September, the latest renderings were revealed of HFZ Capital Group’s 33-story mixed-use hotel and residential building planned at 12-20 West 40th Street, along Bryant Park in Midtown, and now Tectonic has the latest photos of its construction. The structure is currently six stories above street level and features a slight setback past the fifth floor. The first five floors are flush with the existing street wall. Upon completion in early 2017, The Bryant (not to be confused with the Bryant Park Hotel) will have 230 hotel rooms and 57 condos, as well as retail space and a restaurant on the ground floor. David Chipperfield is the design architect.
Near the end of 2013, Brownstoner reported on applications for Douglaston Development’s 40-story, 554-unit residential tower at 2 North 6th Place, on Williamsburg’s northern stretch of East River waterfront, and now photos by Tectonic show the building under construction. It appears to be 11 stories above street level. Based on a rendering from J&A Concrete, the base is close to being structurally complete. A small 678 square-foot retail unit is planned on the ground floor and units will average 925 square feet apiece. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing and completion is expected in 2017.
Mario Faulisi, head of an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for two identical three-story residential buildings as 101-22 – 101-24 99th Street, in Ozone Park, located four blocks from the A train’s stop at Rockaway Boulevard. Each will measure 2,937 square feet and contain four residential units, which means units will average a rental-sized 734 square feet apiece. Benedetto Davi’s Astoria-based Davi Architecture is the applicant of record.
Property owner Shahida Khan has filed applications for a seven-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 65-27 Roosevelt Avenue, in Woodside, a stone’s throw away from the 7 train’s stop at 69th Street. The development will measure a total 10,833 square feet, and will include 1,715 square feet of ground-floor retail and 1,512 square feet of community facility on the second floor. Residential units above will average 761 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Flushing-based Ling Li is the architect of record, and a dilapidated two-story building must first be demolished.
Back in July, details were revealed of the planned renovation of Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77 — a 16-story, one million-square-foot industrial building — and now Brownstoner reports work is well underway. Retail space is planned on the ground floor, along with a 60,000 square-foot public food hall, and the floors above will be leased to commercial and manufacturing tenants. Beyer Blinder Belle and Marvel Architects are designing the city-funded project, which is expected to open for business in the second half of 2016.
