Back in 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story, 22-unit mixed-use building at 101 Morningside Avenue, in Harlem between West 123rd and 124th Streets. Then earlier this year, Azimuth Development Group landed a $20 million construction loan for the project. Per Harlem+Bespoke, an on-site rendering has been posted of the 44,062 square-foot building, which is being designed by Aufgang Architects. The residential units will average 1,650 square feet apiece and will be condominiums. On the cellar and ground levels, St. Luke Baptist Church will occupy 7,761 square feet of space. The vacant four-story building at 101 Morningside still has to be demolished. Two old townhouses at 369-371 West 123rd Street were demolished this past year, although the building at no. 373 will remain untouched. Completion is expected in late 2017.
In the summer of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story, 44-unit mixed-use building at 613 Baltic Street, in northern Park Slope, and earlier this year, the New York Post published the first rendering of the project. Since then, VOA Associates has made further refinements to the design, which Curbed revealed yesterday. JDS Development is behind the project, which will feature condominiums as well as 3,365 and 2,150 square feet of ground-floor retail and community space, respectively. Dubbed Baltic, sales are expected to begin early next year, with completion set for 2017. Four three-story townhouses at 107-113 Fourth Avenue must first be demolished.
Long Island City-based United Air Conditioning, an engineering and utility company, has filed applications for a five-story, 21-unit residential building at 25-53 38th Street, in central Astoria, located nine blocks from the 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains. The structure will measure 14,263 square feet in total, which means units will average a rental-sized 679 square feet apiece. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects is the applicant of record. The assemblage consists of two small townhouses and permits have not been filed yet to knock them down.
Staten Island-based Venmar Properties has filed applications for nine detached, two-family residential buildings at 567-591 Marcy Avenue and 75-79 Venus Place, in Woodrow, located on Staten Island’s southern end. The development site is a vacant stretch of Marcy Avenue between Woodrow Road and Venus Place, and each three-story house will measure an average 2,648 square feet. As you would expect, the units will be family-sized, with one unit located on the ground floor and the second taking up the upper two levels in each house. Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record.
The Archdiocese of New York, in consultation with the NYPD’s Counterterrorism Bureau, has determined that there is the need to provide additional security for Cardinal Timothy Dolan. To accomplish that, they want to build a private garage for the archbishop. That means cutting into St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the proposal on Tuesday.
