A little over a year ago, YIMBY revealed renderings for Ranger Properties’ nine-story, 48-unit mixed-use building at 41-07 Crescent Street, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog reports the topped-out structure’s façade has nearly completed installation. The 36,320 square-foot building will include nearly 4,000 square feet of retail space. Fogarty Finger is designing, and completion is scheduled for this September.
Last December, foundation work started at 265 State Street, in Boerum Hill, where Flank and the Carlyle Group are developing a 20-story, 128-unit mixed-use building. Brownstoner now reports the building is up two stories above street level, and YIMBY has word that almost 80% of the structure’s units are in contract. Dubbed The Boerum, a hotel will occupy the first six floors, and retail is expected on the ground level. Flank is the design architect (as the firm designs and develops its own projects in-house), and Goldstein Hill & West is serving as the architect of record. Completion is slated for 2016.
Back in early September, in the midst of the Great Filing Frenzy of 2014, permits went up for a new residential tower spanning 38-46 West 33rd Street, just southeast of Herald Square. Now YIMBY has the reveal for the 36-story building, which has seen a slight height increase from 385 to 405 feet, thanks to a watchful tipster.
The amalgam of renovated St Vincent’s hospital buildings and handsome new brick that make up Greenwich Lane are slowly moving toward completion between West 11th Street, West 12th Street and Seventh Avenue. YIMBY toured the development and its supermarket-turned-sales office earlier this week, and lead architect Dan Kaplan from FXFOWLE explained the design and thought process behind the five buildings and five townhouses that make up the complex.
In December 2000, the city evicted 60 tenants from an illegally converted loft building at 247 Water Street in Dumbo, and landlord Joshua Guttman ultimately bought out the renters for $30,000 each. When he applied to legalize the building’s apartments, the city denied his request, and a week later, a mysterious four-alarm fire raged through brick factory. Now, after years of sitting vacant and boarded up, the five-story building between Bridge and Gold Streets may become office space.
