A landlord accused of harassing his rent-stabilized tenants at another Lower East Side building has filed applications for a 10-story residential project at 255 East Houston Street.
In 2014, YIMBY brought you new renderings of the 12-story, 105-unit mixed-use building planned at 470 4th Avenue/237 11th Street, in Gowanus, and now Brownstoner reports the building is four stories above ground, and rising. Adam America, Slate Property Group and Naveh Shuster Group are developing, while Aufgang Architects is designing. The project, located a block from subway stops for the F, G and R trains, will include 5,260 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and a 2017 completion date appears likely.
In February of 2014, YIMBY reported on filings for a 29-story, 249-key hotel at 6 Water Street, in the Financial District, and later that year, revealed an on-site rendering of the project, which is being designed by Gene Kaufman. Courtesy of a YIMBY reader, photos confirm the building is finally rising, and it’s now one floor above street level. Rhode Island-based Magna Hospitality Group is developing, after acquiring the site from prolific hotel builder Sam Chang last year for $44.3 million. Signage indicates an anticipated completion date of this coming winter, though that would seem unlikely.
In April, YIMBY revealed the Pestana Hotel planned for 338 West 39th Street, the latest commercial venture from prolific hotelier Sam Chang. Now new building applications have been filed to erect a 25-story hotel on the lot between Eighth and Ninth Avenues.
Guohui He, doing business as Excellent Fortune Property LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 102-18 Corona Avenue, in Corona, seven blocks south of the 7 train’s stop at 103rd Street. The building will measure just 5,276 square feet, which means units will average a rental-sized 660 square feet. Flushing-based Zheng & Associates is the applicant of record, and the project will expand upon the existing structure.
