Construction is nearing completion on NYU‘s campus expansion at 181 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village. Designed by Davis Brody Bond and KieranTimberlake, the 735,000-square-foot complex consists of three towers rising from a full-block podium between Houston, Mercer, and Bleecker Streets and I.M. Pei’s University Village complex. The project is the culmination of over a decade of proposals, planning, and building that dates back to the mid 2000s. Turner Construction Company is the general contractor for the development, which is aiming for LEED gold certification.
Foundation work is progressing at Project Athena LIC, at 27-20 42nd Road in the Hunter’s Point section of Long Island City, Queens. This will eventually give rise to a ground up eight-story mixed-use residential building designed by Ismael Leyva Architects. YIMBY last reported that the 99-foot-tall development will yield a total of 58,580 square feet, with 36,097 square feet designated for future residential space and 3,345 square feet for the commercial space. 51 residences are expected to be housed inside the edifice, which will most likely be rentals based on the average unit size of 707 square feet. The reinforced concrete-based structure will also come with a cellar and a 50-foot-long rear yard for occupants.
Developers were joined by Harrison Mayor James A. Fife to celebrate the opening of 381 new rentals and amenity spaces at Harrison Urby in New Jersey. The residential complex, which first opened in 2017, now includes 1,060 apartments and a lush offering of social spaces designed to engage a new community in the heart of the city.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 33 4th Street in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Located between Smith Street and Hoyt Street, the lot is one block from the Carroll Street subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. Shimon Hoffman is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Façade installation is continuing on 451 Tenth Avenue, a 45-story residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards. Designed by Handel Architects, developed and constructed by Related Companies, and co-developed with Spitzer Enterprises, the 587-foot-tall structure will also include a restaurant, an Equinox fitness center, and a senior living facility by Atria Senior Living called Coterie Hudson Yards. The market-rate rental units will have access to amenities such as a movie theater, an outdoor swimming pool, and terrace. March and White Design (MAWD) is serving as the interior designer for the senior homes at 451 Tenth Avenue, which rises from a 17,280-square-foot L-shaped plot at the corner of Tenth Avenue and West 35th Street. The property is a short walk to the 7 train at the 34th Street-Hudson Yards subway station, while a little further east are the A, C, E, 1, 2, and 3 and the NJ Transit and Amtrak trains beneath Pennsylvania Station.
