In March, YIMBY checked in on the construction of AvalonBay’s 57-story, 861-unit mixed-use building going up at 100 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn, and now Brownstoner notes cladding is wrapping up around the upper levels of the nearly topped-out structure. Dubbed AVA DoBro, the tower will have 15,000 square feet of retail space in its base, and the first six residential floors should be ready for move-ins by September; the entire building will open in early 2016, and SLCE is designing.
The Stonewall Inn, landmark of the LGBT movement, is a step closer to becoming an actual landmark. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to schedule (or calendar, in LPC speak) a public hearing to designate the bar at 51-53 Christopher Street as an individual landmark. That hearing will take place on Tuesday, June 23.
YIMBY noted in April that Naftali Group’s 18-story, 25-unit luxury condo building Two Ten West 77, in the works on the Upper West Side at 210 West 77th Street, was nearly half-way sold out. Now, the building is 65% sold, with sales totaling nearly $110 million in under eight weeks. Thomas Juul-Hansen is designing, and completion is expected by the end of 2016.
Last week, YIMBY revealed the exteriors for 1 Park Lane, which has an actual address of 36 Central Park South, the site of the current Helmsley Park Lane. While we speculated that Vinoly designed the building, we learned that Handel Architects was in fact behind the renderings; we have also obtained a new set of images which include that version of the project’s interiors and views, which will be very impressive.
Two former SROs are being transformed into condos at 318 and 320 West 115th Street in Harlem, and YIMBY has the first look at the restored and expanded prewar townhouses.
