Construction is moving along for the 22-story residential building at 511 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. The project is in Yorkville, and is just two avenues away from the brand new 86th Street Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. Sky Management is responsible for the development.
New plans have been unveiled for a residential tower located at the intersection of Halsey and Williams Streets, in Newark, New Jersey. The project, dubbed “Vibe,” is being built by Strategic Development Partners, and is set to bring 256 new residential units to market.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story building at 314 West 127th Street, in Harlem, Manhattan. The Harlem-based Center for Urban Community Services is responsible for the development. The company focuses on providing services to homeless clients, as well as housing development, training, and research. Here, they will partner with the Department of Homeless Services to create a center for housing with support for serious health and mental health issues, and criminal justice assistance. By their own metrics, they have reached more than 35,000 people per year.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 1893 Crotona Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. The West Farms Square Subway Station is twelve blocks away to the east, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains, and the Tremont Avenue Train Station is seven blocks to the West, serviced by Metro North. Tenants will have quick access to Crotona Park, a 127-acre space described as being the most beautiful park in the borough. Edmond Haxhari will be the developer behind the project.
New renderings are out for the 11-story condominium building rising at 515 West 29th Street, in West Chelsea. Singaporean-based SCDA Architects, led by Soo Chan, is responsible for the design, which incorporates a series of glass panels producing a rippling effect on the façade. They also bear a striking resemblance to an art piece by Marcel Duchamp, “Three Standard Stoppages,” a play on ideas of identity and form through measurement. This might be intentional, considering its location, with dozens of galleries and artist studios in the blocks that surround the project.
