Caerus Group is reportedly partnering with an undisclosed university to build an eight-story, 150-dorm-unit mixed-use building at 206-212 Wadsworth Avenue, in northern Washington Heights, three blocks from the 181st Street stop on the 1 train. The building will measure 105,000 square feet, and a Baptist church is planning to relocate to space on the ground floor. The existing three-story church will be demolished. If the university and developer can’t reach a deal, 80 residential units are planned, according to The Real Deal.
Over a year ago, applications were initially filed for a 36-story, 198-unit mixed-use building planned at 38-46 West 33rd Street in Midtown South, and then YIMBY revealed a rendering of the project this past summer. Now, The Torkian Group has landed a $105 million construction loan for their 220,000 square-foot building, Commercial Observer reports. As previously reported, 198 residential units will spread across 160,029 square feet of residential space, with units averaging roughly 800 square feet, and ground-floor retail will measure 5,872 square feet. Stephen B. Jacobs Group is designing, and excavation work is currently underway.
Back in March, YIMBY posted the first rendering for a new development coming to 245 Manhattan Avenue, in Williamsburg. And now, a tipster has sent along a new set of images for the 5-story project, which is being designed by Mortar Architecture + Development.
Last week, YIMBY reported on permits for a 14-story mixed use development at 144-74 Northern Boulevard in Murray Hill, just east of Flushing in Queens. Now we have the reveal for the unusual, two-tower complex that will rise between 146th Street and Parsons Boulevard.
Back in 2011, the Wall Street Journal predicted the demise of the Bowery’s Lighting District, a strip of wholesale light stores beginning south of Delancey Street in the borderlands between the Lower East Side and Little Italy. Now three of those shops will bite the dust to make way for an eight-story residential and hotel project at 138 Bowery, situated mid-block between Broome and Grand Streets.
