Property owner Jisel Cruz has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 823 Kent Avenue, in the northwestern corner of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The building will measure 4,910 square feet, with each unit measuring an average of 1,635 square feet, so condos are definitely in store. Todd O’Connell is the architect of record, and an existing, recessed two-story, single-family structure must first be removed.
Renderings have been revealed for an 18,455 square-foot clubhouse at Ferry Point Park, in Throggs Neck, the East Bronx. The single-story structure is being developed by The Trump Organization, and Hart Howerton is designing. According to DNAinfo, the Design Commission must approve the plans, but completion is expected in the first half of 2016.
Construction is finally moving ahead at 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, which will be the third tallest building in the complex. But with momentum picking up across the entire site, and 200 Greenwich Street set to rise thanks to a redesign by Bjarke Ingels/BIG, 175 Greenwich Street has also seen some design changes, and 3 World Trade Center has now lost its spires in favor of a more streamlined roof.
When we last checked in at Silverstein’s 30 Park Place, the 67-story hotel and condo tower had just topped out, becoming the tallest residential building in Lower Manhattan. Now most of the structure has its windows, except for the top 15 stories or so. Cladding has reached even further, and only the five uppermost floors are still naked steel and concrete.
While the city considers rezoning a 20-block-long swath of Jerome Avenue beneath the elevated 4 tracks in the Bronx, developers are starting to bet big on the corridor’s commercial potential. Now two investors who lead 925 Capital Inc. want to sell or jointly redevelop a low-slung garage with retail at 1697-1705 Jerome Avenue, in Morris Heights.
