Over the summer was when YIMBY last checked in on the two-building, 700-unit development under construction at 363-365 Bond Street, in Gowanus. At the time, the Lightstone Group’s building at 365 Bond was structurally complete and getting its curtain wall, and foundation work was ongoing at 363 Bond. Today, 365 Bond is wrapping up construction and its leg of the public esplanade along the Gowanus Canal is receiving its finishing touches, Pardon Me For Asking reports. Meanwhile, since Atlantic Realty Development acquired the 363 Bond site, the building has risen four stories. 365 Bond is expected to be completed within the next few months, and 363 Bond will probably wrap up construction in 2017. Both buildings will include small retail and community facility components.
Three years ago, news broke that Glenwood Management would be building a 19-story, 15-unit luxury residential building at 60 East 86th Street, on the Upper West Side. The Thomas Juul-Hansen-design project is now structurally complete and receiving its façade, thanks to photos by Tectonic (h/t Curbed). Those 15 condominiums will spread across 52,213 square feet of residential space, which means units will be incredibly large, averaging 3,480 square feet apiece. Completion is expected later this year.
YIMBY last checked in on the 32-story, 384-unit mixed-use building under construction at 286 Ashland Place, in Downtown Brooklyn, in November, when it was 24-stories-tall. Two Trees’ tower has now topped out, according to Curbed, and cladding is roughly 20 percent installed. The building will have 21,928 square feet of retail and 45,148 square feet of community space within its base, and of the residential units located above, 76 will be rented at below-market rates. Construction is expected to be finsihed over the summer, and move-ins are scheduled for the fall. TEN Arquitectos is behind the design.
Property owner Sukhjinder Singh has filed applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use building at 110-12 101st Avenue, in Richmond Hill, located two blocks north of the 111th Street stop on the A train. The 9,970 square-foot project, to rise on a 50-foot-wide vacant lot, will include a 1,006 square-foot ground-floor retail component. The residential units will begin on the second floor and average 996 square feet apiece. Affordable family-sized units are likely in the works here. Edward Hicks’ Flushing-based architecture firm is the applicant of record.
Property owner Gjek Popaj has filed applications for two four-story, nine-unit residential buildings at 1643-1645 Popham Avenue, in Morris Heights, located a number of blocks away from the neighborhood’s Metro-North Railroad station. Each building would measure 5,944 square feet in total, which means the units will likely be rentals, averaging just 660 square feet apiece. Pelham, N.Y.-based Fred Geremia Architects & Planners is the applicant of record. Demolition commenced earlier this week on the existing two-story, two-unit brick building.
