The Stonewall Inn, located at 51-53 Christopher Street, has been designated an individual landmark by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The unanimous vote took place Tuesday shortly before noon and was greeted by a roar of applause. This unusual move gives the bar’s history as part the LGBT rights movement the official city recognition many say it deserves.
Jack David has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1098 Madison Street, in central Bushwick, four blocks away from the Gates Avenue stop on the J and Z lines. Residential units will measure an average 680 square feet, putting the building within the realm of typical rental construction. Suresh Manchanda’s L&C Associates applied for the permit, and an existing single-family townhouse must first be demolished.
Property owner Jisel Cruz has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 823 Kent Avenue, in the northwestern corner of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The building will measure 4,910 square feet, with each unit measuring an average of 1,635 square feet, so condos are definitely in store. Todd O’Connell is the architect of record, and an existing, recessed two-story, single-family structure must first be removed.
Renderings have been revealed for an 18,455 square-foot clubhouse at Ferry Point Park, in Throggs Neck, the East Bronx. The single-story structure is being developed by The Trump Organization, and Hart Howerton is designing. According to DNAinfo, the Design Commission must approve the plans, but completion is expected in the first half of 2016.
Construction is finally moving ahead at 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, which will be the third tallest building in the complex. But with momentum picking up across the entire site, and 200 Greenwich Street set to rise thanks to a redesign by Bjarke Ingels/BIG, 175 Greenwich Street has also seen some design changes, and 3 World Trade Center has now lost its spires in favor of a more streamlined roof.
