The lovely 19th century building at the corner of Prince and Mott Streets in Nolita has been an orphanage, a school, and a convent, but now a developer has begun transforming the landmarked structure into condos. Today, YIMBY has a new rendering of the structure’s restored facade, as well as a series of images based on historic photographs of the property at 34 Prince Street.
The Landmarks-approved condo project rising at 130 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village has a teaser site, a new address, and a new rendering. Now, the seven-story development between West 9th and 10th Streets will be known as 175 West 10th Street.
The hotel at 6 Water Street in the Financial District, slated to stand 29 stories tall, has reached its eighth floor. The future 249 room establishment, designed by Gene Kaufman, is located near the southern tip of Manhattan, making it the southernmost construction project on the island. Only seven highrise buildings claim a latitude further south.
Michael Paul Enterprises has filed applications to combine and enlarge two four-story townhouses at 163-165 East 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side. The expanded building will gain two stories, and will stand six stories and 60 feet to the roof. Five residential units will spread across 11,654 square feet, which translates into average units of 2,331 square feet, indicative of condos. Thomas Vail’s Vail Associates Architects is the applicant of record.
YIMBY has chronicled the slow evolution of ABN Realty’s 21-story, 24-unit residential project at 19 Park Place, in Tribeca, since the summer of 2013, and now a YIMBY reader has shared photos of the topped-out structure. The façade can also be seen rising skyward, and each condominium will feature a relatively prominent circular balcony. The 25-foot-wide building is being designed by Ismael Leyva, and extends through the block. Completion is likely by early 2016.
