A rendering has been revealed of the 14-story, 50-unit mixed-use building planned at 644 East 14th Street, located on the corner of Avenue C in the East Village. The building will encompass 76,259 square feet and rise 162 feet above street level, Real Estate Weekly reported. There will be 8,064 square feet of retail and 21,575 square feet of community facility space located within the tower’s three-story base. The residential units above should average 677 square feet, which indicates rental apartments. The developer is Opal Holdings, which acquired the site for $23 million over the summer. Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based architecture firm is behind the design. After YIMBY reported on the project’s initial filings when they were submitted in 2014, the site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished in late 2015.
Construction is now three stories above street level on the 35-story, 67-unit mixed-use tower under development at 200 East 59th Street, located on the corner of Third Avenue in Midtown East. The structure can be seen beginning to make its ascent skyward thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 490-foot-tall tower will eventually encompass 109,581 square feet. Retail space, measuring 14,861 square feet, will span the cellar through second floors. The residential units, which will be condominiums, will be located on the third through 35th floors and average 1,490 square feet apiece. Macklowe Properties is the developer and CetraRuddy is behind the design. Completion is expected in late 2017.
Renderings have been revealed of the the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club, a four-story, 45,182-square-foot community facility planned at 250 Bradhurst Avenue, located on the corner of West 155th Street in Harlem. The facility, geared to children ages six through 18, will feature a production studios, a fitness center, educational spaces for tutoring and studying, a screening room, tech labs, and dining areas and lounges. The 60-foot-tall structure is designed by Rogers Partners. The 14,500-square-foot site is currently vacant, although it’s unclear when construction is expected to begin. YIMBY reported on the initial new building applications when they were filed in July.
At the intersection of the Financial District and the beginnings of South Street Seaport lies Maiden Lane, which is rapidly transforming into a continuation of the high-rise corridor to the south. On one particular corner, at the intersection with Front Street, two buildings are now rising. Thanks to YIMBY Forumer Rich Brome we have photos of the new hotel coming to 151 Maiden Lane, which is already several floors above street level, as well as the residential tower rising at One Seaport, climbing next door at a slightly slower pace.
A hotel boom is taking over the Bronx. Today we noticed plans for a hotel in the northwestern corner of the Bronx, in a working class neighborhood called Norwood. The six-story commercial building would rise at 3466 Webster Avenue, right next to the Williamsbridge stop on the Metro North train.
