In December of 2013, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the planned 14-story, 52-key hotel at 1162 Broadway, between West 27th and 28th streets in NoMad, located within the Madison Square North Historic District. Applications for the project were submitted in May of 2014, but filings were incomplete until yesterday, when Aini Assests filed drawings with the Department of Buildings. The building will have 24,325 square feet of commercial space and there will be a café or restaurant on the ground floor. Morris Adjmi Architects is behind the design. The site is currently occupied by a 26-foot-wide, two-story commercial structure, and demolition permits were filed this past December. The LPC also recently approved plans for a hotel next door at 1164 Broadway.
Last December, Cogswell Realty filed exploratory plans for a mixed-use redevelopment of the former Streit’s Matzo Factory, spanning 148-154 Rivington Street on the Lower East Side. The brick buildings will be partially demolished down to the first floor, according to permits with the Department of Buildings. Bowery Boogie spotted additional filings that call for six floors to be built atop the single-story structure that would be left behind after demolition. There will be 45 residential units in total and retail space is expected to measure 10,219 square feet on the ground and cellar floors. The structure would be topped by a open roof terrace. GLUCK+ is the architect of record and likely designing the redevelopment.
Bronx-based Marricco Family Limited Partnership has filed applications for a three-story, six-unit residential building at 1857 Barnes Avenue, in Van Nest, located seven blocks from the Bronx Park East stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The structure will encompass 8,270 square feet, although its residential space will measure 6,226 square feet. That means units will average 1,038 square feet apiece, which is relatively spacious and indicative of market-rate apartments. College Point-based Gino Longo is the architect of record. The site consists of a 55-foot-wide parcel, and demolition permits were filed in December to remove an existing two-story townhouse.
Property owner Ming Ching Cheung has filed an application for a three-story, four-unit residential building at 85-18 57th Road, in Elmhurst, located four blocks from the Woodhaven Boulevard stop on the M and R trains. The structure will measure 5,372 square feet in total and there will be 3,789 square feet of residential space. The units will average 1,263 square feet apiece, meaning the building will probably contain condominiums. Sugnam Chang’s Brooklyn-based Basic Groups Corp. is the architect of record. An existing two-story brick rowhouse must first be demolished.
This past summer, news broke that the Covenant House was seeking to redevelop most of the block bound by Tenth and Dyker avenues and West 40th and 41st streets, in the Hudson Yards district, into a mixed-use development that would contain their new headquarters. Per Crain’s, the city’s Economic Development Corporation and the nonprofit jointly launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the project. The site could accommodate a roughly 780,000 square-foot project, but would have to include a new 150,000 square-foot facility for Covenant House. A second building could include roughly 700 residential units, retail space, and leasable community facility space. It’s proposed 40 percent of the units would rent at below-market rates, of which 75 to 100 units are to be set aside as supportive housing. Submissions are due March 11. The city must first take possession of vacant building at 450 West 41st Street.
