During the summer of 2015, renderings were revealed of Lalezarian Properties’ planned 35-story, 220-unit mixed-use tower under construction at 323 Tenth Avenue, between West 28th and 29th streets in West Chelsea. At the time, the ground floor of the tower was being constructed, and the developer’s two other 13-story buildings at 507 West 28th Street – with a combined additional 155 residential units – were close to topping out. Today, the larger structure is 25 stories above street level and the smaller 13-story components are nearly fully clad in glass. The photos are courtesy of Tectonic (h/t Curbed). The entire project will encompass 337,978 square feet, and rental units will average 779 square feet across all three buildings. There will also be a total 16,068 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Avinash K. Malhotra Architects is the design architect and completion is expected later this year.
The Spanish Delancey Seventh Day Adventist Church, located at the four-story building at 126 Forsyth Street, on the corner of Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, is looking for a development partner that would demolish the existing structure for a new building. The 5,000 square-foot lot could accommodate a new mixed-use building of up to 32,500 square feet, where a maximum of 27,000 square feet could be used as residential space. The lot is subject to a 120-foot height cap, according to Curbed NY. The church is requiring the first three floors of the new building to be designed, owned, and operated by the church as a house of worship, although zoning allows for retail space to be built as well. It should be noted that the rest of the building could potentially end up being a hotel or office space if a developer chooses against building residential units.
