Nearly a year ago, YIMBY brought you a construction update on 10 Bond Street, in NoHo, where a seven-story, 11-unit condominium building is being constructed. At that point, the concrete shell had been completed and the façade’s terra cotta was beginning to be installed. Today, we know the exterior of the structure is completely installed, courtesy of photography by Tectonic. SK Development, Ironstate Development and the Chetrit Group are the developers, and Annabelle Selldorf is the designer. Occupancy is expected later this year.
A six-story mixed-use apartment building may replace a single-story Walgreens at 505 Pacific Street in Boerum Hill, according to new building applications filed this morning.
Last month, piling began at the site of the 630-foot-tall New York Wheel, at 155 Richmond Terrace, in Staten Island’s St. George. Now cranes have arrived to assist construction, per the Staten Island Advance. Construction of a 950-space parking garage and the Wheel’s foundation is currently underway, and according to Commercial Observer, parts for the main structure will arrive in February of 2016. Skanska is building the foundation, and Starneth BV is designing.
In February, YIMBY reported on filings for a small mixed-use development at 491 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, and now renderings have surfaced of the four-story, six-unit building, per Fort Greene Focus. The entire building will measure just 4,967 square feet, which includes 1,228 square feet for retail space on the ground floor. Units above will average a rental-sized 623 square feet, two per floor, although the top two units will also share a fifth-floor penthouse. An anonymous LLC is developing, and Issac & Stern Architects is designing. Construction is reportedly underway.
The old Mercedes dealership at 520 West 41st Street and Eleventh Avenue is meeting a quick demise, paving the way for Silverstein Properties to begin preparation work for their future mixed-use development. While the project must still pass through ULURP, YIMBY revealed preliminary renderings last June, showing a 1,400-unit tower rising above a significant retail podium. Now we have a few overhead shots of demolition progress taken from the nearly-completed Skye, just a few hundred feet to the northwest.
