Hesky Haim, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a two-story, 2,125 square-foot commercial building at 159 Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side. Both floors, in addition to a cellar level, will be designated for retail, and the building will stand 96 feet tall, boasting incredible ceiling heights. Wayne Norbeck’s DXA Studio is the applicant of record.
Two four-story residential buildings, totaling 14 residential units, are now under construction at 9-11 Orient Avenue, in northern East Williamsburg, two blocks from the L train’s Graham Avenue stop. According to Brownstoner, the buildings have risen to one story, and Great Neck-based Shalom Rubinoff is developing. The residential units will average just 690 square feet, indicative of rentals. Gerald Caliendo is designing, and completion is expected in Spring 2016.
Northern Greenpoint has construction on every corner, but the biggest new building headed to the formerly quaint waterfront neighborhood is a 39-story tower at 145-155 West Street, once home to the Huxley Envelope factory. Mack Real Estate and Palin Enterprises demolished the large single-story building in January, and now they’re driving piles for the planned 392-foot-tall high rise between Huron and India Streets on the East River. When YIMBY stopped by the site, we found this rendering tacked to the construction fence.
Last month, YIMBY brought you the first renderings for the future Hoxton Hotel, coming to 97 Wythe Avenue, just a few blocks in from the Williamsburg waterfront. Now, we have an update on another nearby hotel project, and significant progress is being made on 55 Wythe Avenue, aka the William Vale Hotel.
Now that a judge has finalized the sale of Cobble Hill’s Long Island College Hospital to Fortis Property Group, the developer has wasted no time in filing plans for a new emergency center. New building applications surfaced on Friday for a new five-story medical building at 70 Atlantic Avenue, on the corner of Hicks Street.
