Early in 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 13-story mixed-use project at 347 Bowery, in the East Village, and later the same year, the site’s three-story building was demolished to make way for the development. Now, per EV Grieve, the 22,857 square-foot building is a story above ground level, and will feature five three-bedroom condominiums. Additionally, three retail units will spread across 10,800 square feet on the first two floors. Urban Muse is developing, and Annabelle Selldorf is designing.
This past summer, YIMBY revealed renderings of Cayuga Capital’s six-story, 64-unit mixed-use conversion of the two-story warehouse at 600 Bushwick Avenue, in northern Bushwick. According to Crain’s, the developer has landed $28 million in financing for the 63,000 square-foot building, which will feature 12,500 and 2,500 square feet of retail and medical offices, respectively, on the ground floor. Ground was broken on the rental project in August, and completion is expected sometime in 2017. Hustvedt Cutler Architects is the applicant of record.
In October 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a seven-story residential project at 65-38 Austin Street, in Rego Park, and now the building is currently under construction, according to DNAinfo. The building will have 65 condos across 55,630 square feet of space, for average units of 855 square feet; there will be 30 one-bedroom, 30 two-bedroom and five three-bedroom units. Bayside-based Yin Hu is the developer, and Angelo Ng + Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the applicant of record. Completion is expected sometime 2016.
Back in July, YIMBY posted that 56 Leonard was topping-out, and now the tower’s scaffolding seems to be disappearing from its uppermost floors, revealing the cantilevered levels at the very top. The remainder of the tower’s glass will first be installed across the penthouse levels, spiraling downwards to meet the glass that’s already appeared along the mid-section.
Now that the Upper West Side is nearly 80% landmarked, new development usually comes in the form of conversions, not ground-up construction. But one developer managed to snag an abandoned single-story building at 952 Columbus Avenue, on the corner of 107th Street. And YIMBY has the reveal for the development that will eventually rise on the site.
