Columbia University’s Manhattanville Campus expansion, in Harlem, is one of the biggest new developments underway in New York City, though it may not look it at the moment. Construction is continuing in phases, and today, YIMBY has the latest photos of progress at the new three-story academic conference center, as shot by Tectonic.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building in the Bronx’s West Farms neighborhood. Geraldo Zefi will be developing 1295 Rodman Place, just two blocks away from the West Farms Square subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
Permits have been filed for three four-story residential buildings in the waterfront district of Great Kills, Staten Island. The structures will rise at 60, 70, and 80 Tennyson Drive, all within the same lot, and residents will be relatively close to Staten Island’s only rapid transit line. It’s a twenty-minute walk or five-minute drive to the Great Kills train station, serviced by the Staten Island Railway (SIR), and Tora Development is developing the project.
Back in June of 2016, YIMBY revealed the first renderings of 200 Amsterdam Avenue, which is set to become the tallest skyscraper on the Upper West Side, at 669 feet to parapet. Permits were filed a few months later, and now, despite protests by NIMBYs, excavation work has officially begun.
Delancey Street Associates has launched leasing for 350,000 square feet of office space in Essex Crossing. This will be the first significant block of Class-A office space to come to Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and the developers hope the quasi-historic surrounds and combination of new and existing retail will be enough to lure tenants.
