Over the course of the project’s two-year evolution, YIMBY has chronicled the construction of 505 West 19th Street, in West Chelsea, which now hosts two conjoined buildings. The eastern component will contain 25 condos and two penthouses, while the western structure will have eight full-floor-plus units, as well as a duplex penthouse, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of construction beginning on Greenland Forest City Partners’ 23-story and 303-unit mixed-use building at 38 Sixth Avenue, in Prospect Heights, which marked their fourth building to break ground at the Pacific Park redevelopment. Now, applications have been filed for a building right across the street at 37 Sixth Avenue/495 Dean Street, which will also house a public school. Applications call for a 26-story structure totaling 342,788 square feet. The school will measure 69,858 square feet from the sub-cellar through the sixth floors, and the building’s upper portion, starting on the sixth floor, will hold 323 apartments, averaging 848 square feet apiece.
Property owner Yair Bohadana, based in Morrisania, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 2110 Hughes Avenue in Belmont, a few blocks away from the Bronx Zoo. The building will measure 5,520 square feet in total, and units will average a rental-sized 690 square feet each. The two fourth-floor units will also share an upper-level mezzanine, bringing the building’s roof to 51 feet. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s four-story predecessor was demolished by the HPD in 2001.
Harlen Housing Associates, owner of the 214-unit Section 8 building at 560 Lenox Avenue in northern Harlem, has been planning a second facility on the adjacent lot at 70 West 139th Street for nearly a decade. Now, construction loans have been obtained for the eight-story, 64-unit project, according to Harlem+Bespoke. The building will measure 55,355 square feet in total, which includes 1,878 square feet of community space on the ground floor, and 42 of the 64 units will be designated as affordable. Peter Franzese Design and Engineering is the applicant of record.
L+M Development and Hornig Capital Partners have filed applications for a 12-story, 133-unit mixed-use building at 4439 Third Avenue in Belmont, between East 181st and 182nd Streets. All of the residential units will rent at below-market rates, and average a relatively spacious 955 square feet apiece. Another 11,425 square feet of communal facility space will operate on the ground floor, and Dattner Architects is designing.
