Property owner Daniel Wise, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a six-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 193 Henry Street, on the Lower East Side, located two blocks from the East Broadway stop on the F train. The development will encompass 8,610 square feet and would replace a dilapidated four-story, 25-foot-wide townhouse, for which demolition permits were recently filed. There will be 1,355 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a small 384-square-foot medical office in the cellar. The full-floor residential units begin on the second floor and will average a specious 1,374 square feet apiece, indicative of condos. The structure will be topped by a rooftop terrace and recreation space. Think Architecture and Design is the architect of record.
The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has launched a Request for Proposals (RFP) for two city-owned development sites adjacent to each other, which total 4.5 acres, at 5-40 44th Drive and 4-99 44th Drive. Politico New York reports that the city is looking for developers to build “at least 300,000 square feet of commercial office or light manufacturing space, up to 1,000 apartments, a school, and a small park.” The site is currently located in a manufacturing district but would be rezoned for a mixed-use project. It currently consists of a single-story Department of Transportation facility, a surface parking lot, and a restaurant (which has a lease that expires in 2017). Proposals are due by May 26, 2016.

A church-to-residential conversion project in Downtown Brooklyn looks like its getting close to finished, at least on the outside. Our friend Tectonic sent us some photos of 200 Nassau Street and the façade is almost entirely in place. There’s plenty of work still to be done at the ground level and a little on the top of the structure. Otherwise, things are looking good.
