Long Island City’s mixed-use district was originally engineered to create a mix of retail, apartments and light industry, but new construction manufacturing space is rarely developed in the waterfront neighborhood once filled with factories. But today, one developer filed plans for a mixed-use building with apartments and ground-floor manufacturing at 37-29 33rd Street, in a subdistrict known as Dutch Kills.
Construction is well underway to restore and expand the formerly burnt-out seven-story building at 92 Morningside Avenue, in central Harlem, to 10 stories and 75 market-rate rental units. The building, three blocks away from the 125th Street stop serviced by the A, B, C and D trains, appears to be topped-out, according to Harlem+Bespoke. Renaissance Realty Group is developing. ND Architecture & Design is designing, and the project will probably be finished by 2016.
Melody Development has filed applications for a five-story, two-unit residential building at the vacant lot at 498 West 130th Street, in Manhattanville, a few blocks east of the 125th Street station for the 1 train. The building will measure nearly 3,900 square feet, with one unit occupying the ground floor and the second spanning floors two through five. Ashraf Ali, head of Architectural Design Solutions, is the applicant of record.
Joseph Brunner and Abe Mandel are set to acquire the single-story warehouse buildings spanning 296-306 Wythe Avenue, in western Williamsburg, two blocks in from the East River, for roughly $27 million. The developers plan to build a residential development on the site, featuring retail space on the ground floor. When the sale closes, the transaction would be a price record in the neighborhood at nearly $700 per buildable square foot.
Dubbed Lefferts Place Mews, a slew of three-story. townhouse-style buildings are getting their finishing touches at 76-96 Lefferts Place, in southern Clinton Hill, a block from the Franklin Avenue stop on the C train. The development will total 31 condominium units, and Jack Bain is the developer, according to Brownstoner. Design Studio Associates is designing, whereas Schneider Associates is serving as the architect of record. Move-ins are expected later this year.
