An anonymous LLC’s four-story townhouse at 112 Bowery, in Chinatown, is now receiving a small expansion to 7,300 square feet, according to Bowery Boogie. The building is being converted into an entirely commercial property, with retail space on the ground floor and office/storage space on the upper levels. Zhu Heng Zheng’s Interamericana Engineering is the applicant of record, and completion is likely by 2016.
Last year, YIMBY reported on filings for a 48-unit mixed-use development — broken up into eight small buildings — at 32-35 Linden Place, in downtown Flushing, but now the developers, Latimer & Linden Management Corp., have filed for a single structure. A seven-story, 49-unit building is now planned, and 11,187 square feet of heath care facilities will take up the ground and second floors. The residential units, averaging 672 square feet each, will take up floors three through seven. Peter Casini is the new architect of record. The site’s single-story predecessor was demolished in 2008.
In March, YIMBY revealed renderings of the four-building, 223-unit condominium redevelopment of Cabrini Medical Center, in Gramercy. Now, developers Chetrit Group and Clipper Equity have closed on a $345.5 million loan for the project, according to Commercial Observer. Dubbed Gramercy Square, three medical buildings will be converted, and a fourth building will be constructed ground-up. Also planned is a 25,000 square-foot court yard, designed by M. Paul Friedberg and Partners; Woods Bagot is the project’s design architect. Completion is expected in 2016.
The current round of the 57th Street boom is making rapid progress, and construction work at 220 Central Park South in particular is moving quickly. Despite all the momentum, slight uncertainty has surrounded the building’s final design, but YIMBY now has a fresh rendering confirming the skyscraper’s ultimate appearance.
The development boom is kicking into high gear in Downtown Brooklyn, between the nearly complete Ava DoBro at 100 Willoughby Street, the two topped out residential towers at City Point, and Two Trees’ 36-story BAM South Tower. Today we have an update on 333 Schermerhorn Street, aka The Hub, thanks to YIMBY reader and prolific photographer Tectonic.
