Rockrose Development is taking over Long Island City, and today, YIMBY has fresh renderings for the firm’s newly-topped-out 50-story tower at 43-25 Hunter Street, which has been named Hayden.
It’s been a while since we checked in on Time Equities’ project at 50 West Street, dubbed simply 50 West, in the Financial District. The 64-story, 780-foot-tall building topped out back in the fall of 2015, but work has been going on since winter 2014. Now, we have an exclusive time-lapse of its construction, produced by EarthCam.
The growing Orthodox population in northern Bed-Stuy needs more schools and daycares, and one South Williamsburg-based program is building a new location south of the Brooklyn Navy Yard to fill that need. The Williamsburg Infant and Early Childhood Development Center has filed plans for a six-story building at 430 Park Avenue.
A rendering for a new Lower Manhattan skyscraper by architect Thomas Juul-Hansen has appeared on the YIMBY Forums. The building is located on the corner of White and Centre streets, at 137 Centre Street, just to the east of TriBeCa. Juul-Hansen’s rendering would indicate the potential for a 60-story building on a 5,100-square-foot lot. The tower would be located on a site that has significant air rights within its own block, with 75,530 square feet remaining atop the landmarked Fire Engine Company No. 31 at 87 Lafayette Street, and an additional 81,940 square feet atop 139 Centre Street. If the existing nine-story municipal office building at 137 Centre is demolished, the available air rights would total 208,470 square feet. Per the EDC, “Negotiations around the 137 Centre Street RFP are ongoing, and this rendering does not accurately reflect the project under consideration. NYCEDC looks forward to announcing a developer selection in the coming months.”
In August of 2015, YIMBY revealed new renderings of the 39-story, 640-unit mixed-use project planned at 10 Huron Street and 19 India Street (a.k.a. 145-155 West Street), in Greenpoint, located five blocks from the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. Now the tower portion, at 10 Huron, is four stories above street level, while the foundation is complete where the six-story portion will go at 19 India, as seen in photos by NyConstructionPhoto. The entire complex will encompass 716,982 square feet. Across both buildings, there will be a total of 19,324 square feet of ground-floor retail space, in addition to a 3,802-square-foot medical office. The residential units should average 894 square feet apiece, of which 128 will be rented at below-market rates through the housing lottery.
