The Amirian Group and Bridgeton Holdings have begun converting the former 10-story, 50,000 square-foot office building at 396 Broadway, in Tribeca, into a 171-key hotel, according to Crain’s. Rooms will start at $200 per night, which is reportedly below the city’s average of $231. DXA Studio is designing the conversion, and a soft opening is expected at the end of 2016.
Vitaly Raykhman, doing business as Eliyah Realty, has filed applications for a six-story, 8,991 square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 2619 East 16th Street, in southern Sheepshead Bay, a block from the B and Q trains’ stop at Sheepshead Bay Road. The first two floors will be designated as community space, measuring a total 4,004 square feet, and unspecified commercial space will take up the remainder of the building.

All but two residential units will be located on the second through fifth floors, and outdoor rooftop space will be available to residents. The units will likely be rentals, averaging a relatively small 648 square feet apiece. The site has been vacant for some time, and GF55 Partners is designing.

Tribeca-based TRA Studio Architecture is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building was demolished earlier this year.

The buildings are being dubbed Enclave and Cathedral, and also go by the address of 400 West 113th Street. Brodsky Organization is the developer, Handel Architects is the architect, and completion is expected this fall.
