Staten Island-based Cee-Jay Real Estate Development has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at the vacant lot of 94 Broad Street, in Stapleton. Located four blocks south of the neighborhood’s SIRR station, the building will measure just 1,951 square feet, which means units will average 975 square feet. Stanley Krebushevski’s SMK Architect is the applicant of record. A single-family building was previously proposed in 2009 but never built.
The 10-story, 35-unit rental building at 189 Avenue C, in the East Village, is undergoing a condo conversion, according to EV Grieve. Douglas Elliman is marketing the units, and the first few are available for purchase and immediate occupancy. Existing tenants are not obligated to purchase their unit and can remain tenants without fearing eviction. Before the condos launched earlier this month, the building changed hands for $32.5 million.
Lalezarian Properties has acquired a warehouse at 606 West 30th Street, in West Chelsea, for $36 million. The site currently has roughly 30,000 square feet of development rights, and is zoned for retail or light manufacturing, but the developer is likely waiting on a rezoning that would allow for residential use. The site is located across from the High Line and Related’s multi-skyscraper Hudson Yards development. [The Real Deal]
A combination of landmarking and unusual manufacturing zoning have frozen Soho in the early 20th century, but every once in a while, a developer scoops up a non-contextual and underutilized property hidden among the cast iron 19th century facades. One of those builders, KUB Capital, has filed plans to erect an eight-story, six-unit building at 146 Wooster Street, between West Houston and Prince Street.
In June 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the office-to-residential conversion of the 10-story building at 11 Beach Street, in Tribeca, and now construction is well underway, per Curbed. An atrium has been carved out of the building’s center, and the converted structure will contain 27 three- to five-bedroom condominiums, averaging an impressive 3,975 square feet apiece. HFZ Capital is developing, while BKSK Architects is designing; interiors are being designed by Thomas Juul-Hansen. Completion is expected in 2016.
