The Spanish Delancey Seventh Day Adventist Church, located at the four-story building at 126 Forsyth Street, on the corner of Delancey Street on the Lower East Side, is looking for a development partner that would demolish the existing structure for a new building. The 5,000 square-foot lot could accommodate a new mixed-use building of up to 32,500 square feet, where a maximum of 27,000 square feet could be used as residential space. The lot is subject to a 120-foot height cap, according to Curbed NY. The church is requiring the first three floors of the new building to be designed, owned, and operated by the church as a house of worship, although zoning allows for retail space to be built as well. It should be noted that the rest of the building could potentially end up being a hotel or office space if a developer chooses against building residential units.
A small, boutique condo project is about to replace a century-old brick apartment building at 371 Baltic Street, in the borderlands between Boerum Hill, Gowanus, and Carroll Gardens. YIMBY has renderings of the four-story building, which will rise between Smith and Hoyt streets, near Gowanus Houses.
A six-story apartment building may grow on a vacant lot at 45 Lenox Road, between Flatbush and Bedford avenues in Flatbush.
The proposal to renovate a commercial building in the NoHo Historic District didn’t fly with the members of the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday. The LPC rejected the proposal presented for 348 Lafayette Street, located on the southwest corner of Lafayette and Bond streets.
In 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the planned 36-story, 372-unit residential building at 225 East 39th Street (a.k.a. 222 East 40th Street), in Murray Hill, and then foundation work began last summer. Thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the structure is now 16 stories above street level and rising. When the building is completed in the spring of 2017, it will encompass 373,248 square feet, with 343,187 square feet being used as residential space. The rental apartments will average 922 square feet apiece, and amenities include a fitness facility, children’s playroom, lounges, a café, a library, a courtyard garden, and a 35th-floor rooftop deck. Twenty percent of the apartments will rent at below-market rates. Fisher Brothers is developing the project and Handel Architects is designing it.
