Over the summer, YIMBY revealed the latest renderings for the planned 1,000-foot-plus residential tower at 125 Greenwich Street (a.k.a 22 Thames Street), in the Financial District. Permits with the Department of Buildings have yet to depict such tower, but filings with the Attorney General’s office offer a more accurate description of what’s planned. According to The Real Deal, the building will stand 91 stories above street level. It will have 275 condominium units spread across 306,312 square feet of residential space. Specifically, the units will range from studios to three-bedrooms, with the largest unit measuring 3,625 square feet. Michael Shvo, Vector Group, and Bizzi & Partners are developing the tower and Rafael Viñoly Architects is designing it. The floor layouts suggest the final design has yet to be revealed, although foundation work is currently underway. Completion is expected in 2018.
A big change for a Lower Manhattan landmark is one step closer to becoming a reality. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved modifications to 1 Wall Street, paving the way for its conversion from bank headquarters to residential condominiums with ground-floor retail.
Anyone looking for a suburban-style mall has to travel to the outer edges of New York City, but there are a few sprawling commercial centers for New Yorkers who can drive to the southern reaches of Brooklyn. One of those malls is Ceasar’s Bay Shopping Center, a couple of acres of chain stores and parking lots on the shore of Gravesend Bay.
Last week, YIMBY wrote about a pair of apartment buildings planned in Ridgewood, which will be Brookland Capital’s fist project in Queens. Now we have a rendering for their condo development at 443 Bainbridge Street in Bed-Stuy, a few blocks from the developer’s offices on Malcolm X Boulevard.
On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved construction of a new two-unit house at the corner of St. Felix Street and Hanson Place in the Brooklyn Academy of Music Historic District. The new construction at 147 St. Felix Street, a lot vacant since 1999, will rise three stories and will hopefully fare better than the site’s two previous occupants.
