YIMBY last brought you an update on the 29-story & 57-unit tower at 301 East 50th Street, in Midtown East, back in November of 2014. Since then, the building has received the rest of its façade, per Curbed. CBSK Ironstate is developing, and the building will also include 6,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The limestone-clad structure was designed by COOKFOX Architects, and opening can probably be expected before the year’s end.
Back in December, YIMBY reported that an LLC filed applications for a new development at 440 Washington Street, in Tribeca. And now, we have the first renderings of the residential project, which is being developed by Ponte Equities and designed by OCV Architects.
Back in May, a developer filed plans to convert a warehouse into a nightclub at 599 Johnson Avenue, on the western edge of Bushwick’s industrial business zone. Now we have the first look at the warehouse’s transformation, which will liven up a pretty dead commercial block between Scott and Gardner Avenues.
Just east of Prospect Park in Brooklyn, Prospect Lefferts Gardens is seeing almost as much new construction as its pricier neighbor to the north, Crown Heights. Filings for new buildings roll in every few weeks, ranging from little market-rate developments to partially affordable megaprojects from developer Hudson Companies. Now we have an application for a five-story apartment building at 195 Hawthorne Street, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.
Over the summer, Related Companies’ 11-story, 39-unit mixed-use building at 520 West 28th Street, in West Chelsea, was just starting to climb above street level, and now Curbed has a slew of new exterior and interior renderings via the project’s teaser site. The building will be topped by a 6,391 square-foot triplex penthouse, and 11,180 square feet of retail space is planned on the ground floor. Zaha Hadid is designing the project, Hayes Davidson crafted the renderings, and completion is expected in late 2016.
