The Institute for Community Living, a Cypress Hills non-profit that offers mental health services to low-income families, plans to dramatically expand its building at 2581 Atlantic Avenue near Broadway Junction.
Two turn-of-the-century apartment buildings at 230 and 232 East 54th Street may bite the dust for a 22-story residential project. New building applications were filed yesterday to erect a 237-foot-tall building at 232 East 54th Street, between Second and Third Avenues in Midtown East.
Broad Street Development has filed applications for a 12-story, 58-unit mixed-use building at 308 Mulberry Street, in NoHo, steps away from the 6, B, D, F, and M trains. The building will measure 103,372 square feet, and will include 11,041 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Residential units will average a spacious 1,592 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Rawlings Architects is the architect of record, and the developer acquired the existing six-story building (with 298 Mulberry Street) for $178.5 million earlier this year.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings of Magnum Real Estate Group and Real Estate Equities’ 10-story, 83-unit mixed-use building planned at 196 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side. Now that demolition is complete on the site’s old commercial buildings, excavation work appears imminent, per Bowery Boogie. A pile driver has appeared on-site as well as other excavation equipment. Once complete, the building will also have 13,463 square feet of retail space on the ground floors, and Ismael Leyva is designing.
Back in October of 2012, YIMBY broke news of plans for a significant hotel and retail tower at 701 Seventh Avenue, in Times Square, and now that excavation is nearly complete, foundation work is imminent on the 39-story, 452-key Marriott Edition, according to the New York Post. Dubbed 20 Times Square, the building will measure just under 270,000 square feet and will include 76,000 square feet of retail space. The retail base will also feature an 18,000 square-foot LED sign. Steven Witkoff, Ian Schrager, Winthrop Realty Trust, and Maefield Development are the developers, while PBDW Architects is designing. Completion is expected in 2017.
