Construction is expected to begin in January on Melrose North, a residential development that will bring 171 units of supportive and affordable housing to 925 Courtlandt Avenue in South Bronx’s Morrisania neighborhood. In a partnership between developer Bronx Pro Group and the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), the $92 million project will be built on a vacant NYCHA waste facility site.
Exterior work is progressing on 425 Park Avenue, an 897-foot-tall commercial skyscraper in Midtown East and number 12 on YIMBY’s construction countdown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners and developed by L&L Holding Company LLC with Adamson Associates, the 47-story tower will yield 666,966 square feet of office space.
The final exterior touches are underway on The Prime, a 120,000-square-foot mixed-use project at 22-43 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by SRA Architecture + Engineering and developed by Circle F, the 11-story building will yield 71 residences with interior design by Andres Escobar of Lemay + Escobar Architecture. Sales and marketing for the units is being handled by Ryan Serhant of The Serhant Team and Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing: New York. The complex is located at the confluence of 46th Avenue, Jackson Avenue, and 23rd Street.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has issued a certificate of appropriateness for a rooftop addition, façade renovation, and cellar excavation at 238 East 15th Street in Gramercy, Manhattan. As part of the excavation, the building will include a 39-foot swimming pool and lounge areas that open out into a manicured rear yard.
Permits have been filed for a 32-story mixed-use building at 2-01 50th Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. Located at the intersection of 50th Avenue and Center Boulevard, the corner lot is two blocks west of the Vernon Boulevard-Jackson Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Katheline M. Pierre is listed as the owner behind the applications. The development site is under project management by corporate subsidiary Kathens’ Piettokpatia and Foundation of Motion Pictures Information Enterprises.
