Back in September of 2014, YIMBY brought you an update on adjacent residential projects at 10 Bond Street and 372 Lafayette Street (a.k.a. 11 Great Jones Street), in NoHo. The former project, a seven-story, 11-unit condominium building, went on the to have construction completed by the end of the summer of 2015. Construction has since entirely wrapped up on the latter project, a six-story, eight-unit residential building, as seen in photos by Tectonic. The property is completely unobscured from scaffolding and occupancy is currently underway. The ground floor and cellar levels will contain 2,143 square feet of retail space. The eight rental apartments above measure between 1,300 and 2,000 square feet apiece, coming in two- and three-bedroom configurations, although some units appear to have been divided into multiple apartments. Kano Properties is the developer, and Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design.
Back in October of 2014, the Kingsbridge National Ice Center, led by Kevin Parker and Mark Messier, signed a 99-year lease with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) to convert the vacant Kingsbridge Armory, at 29 West Kingsbridge Road in Kingsbridge Heights, into an ice sports facility. As planned, the 750,000-square-foot building, an individual landmark, will be converted to accommodate nine ice rinks, one of which will be a 5,000-seat arena, and 50,000 square feet of community facility space. Politico New York now reports the NYCEDC has extended the deadline by a month for the developer to obtain $158 million in construction financing, at which point it would turn over the lease to the developer to begin construction.
Backhoes have just begun tearing up the earth to make way for a slim condo building at 42-44 Crescent Street in Long Island City. Now, YIMBY has snagged the first rendering of the project near Queensboro Plaza.
A four-story row house on West 19th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues will meet the wrecking ball for condos, and we have a glimpse of the new building that will replace it.
Nearly a decade in the making, a Williamsburg residential project is finally nearing the finish line. The 51-unit, seven-story development at 150 North 12th Street has topped out, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
