Work began last summer on Pacific Park’s second affordable tower at 38 Sixth Avenue. Now YIMBY has a slew of new facade and interior renderings for the building designed by SHoP Architects.
Work on the conversion of a former manufacturing building not far from the DUMBO waterfront is humming along quite nicely. Yesterday, YIMBY got a hardhat tour of the work underway at 51 Jay Street.
A huge vacant lot in the heart of Arverne, in the Rockaways, is about sprout a seven-story apartment building. Benjamin Companies and Beechwood Organization have filed plans for an 88-unit building at 6804 Tides Road, a newly created street off Rockaway Beach Boulevard between Beach 68th and 69th Streets.
In September of 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) approved the design for a six-story, 44,243-square-foot commercial-retail project at 529 Broadway, located on the corner of Spring Street in SoHo. The site, along with much of the neighborhood, is located within the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, which means projects are subject to LPC approval. Construction at the building, technically an expansion of an existing two-story structure, is now wrapping up, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The new structure has already received a majority of its curtain wall and work is likely now focused on the interior. When it opens later this year, the entire building will be leased as retail space. BKSK Architects designed the building, and Aurora Capital Associates, Wharton Properties, Thor Equities, and the Adjmi family are the developers.
In 2015, Kushner Companies, LIVWRK, and Rockpoint Group acquired, for $275 million, the seven-story, 338-unit rental apartment building at 184 Kent Avenue, in northern Williamsburg, with the intention to convert the property into condominium units. The conversion project, dubbed Austin Nichols House, will include 338 condominium units, and now Curbed NY has the latest details. They will come in studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations, and the existing rentals are currently being converted on a unit-to-unit basis. Morris Adjmi Architects is designing the conversion, which includes a revamped lobby, new amenity spaces, and, of course, the apartments. The ground-floor is currently occupied by multiple retail units. The property was used as a warehouse before it was converted into residential space in 2010 by JMH Development.
