Williamsburg’s ongoing development boom is stretching across all parts of the neighborhood, and includes everything from apartments to hotels and office buildings. But smaller infill is just as important in terms of rounding out the pedestrian realm, and now we have renderings of plans for an old warehouse at 120 North 6th Street, which Kenneth Park Architects will transform into both retail and office space.
Marymount School, a tony all-girls Catholic school on the Upper East Side, hopes to build a 13-story academic building on an empty lot at 115 East 97th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues.
Developer MKF Group has been busy in Bushwick recently, with small residential projects underway on Linden Street, Willoughby Avenue and Bleecker Street. Now they’ve filed plans for their biggest development to date: a 12-story mixed-use building at 301 Himrod Street, between Wyckoff and Irving Avenues.
Lyco Investment Corp. and Nexus Development are planning to build an eight-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 258-260 Bowery, in Nolita, according to Bowery Boogie. The project has not been submitted to the DOB, but permits are already on file to demolish the existing three-story building. A rendering includes some form of commercial space on the ground and second floors, and condos begin on the third floor, meaning full-floor units are likely. Morris Adjmi is designing, and the façade is required to be masonry.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a 10-story, 13-unit mixed-use building planned at 173-175 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side, and now a rendering has surfaced of the project, per Bowery Boogie. The new building will have 1,537 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and the condos will average roughly 2,000 square feet apiece. Nexus Development is developing, ODA Architecture is designing, and completion is tentatively expected in 2018.
