A proposal to significantly improve Harlem‘s massive Lenox Terrace housing complex has begun public review as part of the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure process. Plans call for the addition of mixed-income housing, six acres of green space, and retail to the site located between Lenox Avenue and Fifth Avenue, and from 132nd to 135th Streets. Lenox Terrace comprises over six square blocks and houses more than 4,000 people across six buildings.
Construction is continuing at 1220 Putnam Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where developers first broke ground in October 2018. Designed by ARC Architecture + Design Studio and developed by Boaz Gilad, the rising residential development will eventually top out at four stories and comprise a total 6,600 square feet.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 140-46 Sanford Avenue in Flushing, Queens. Located between Kissena Boulevard and Union Street, the interior lot is four blocks from the Main Street subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Xi Zhao under the D&R Sanford Group LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The glass curtain wall is rising quickly on 77 Greenwich Street, a mixed-use residential project in the Financial District. FXCollaborative is the designer and Trinity Place Holdings is the developer of the 500-foot-tall reinforced concrete skyscraper, which is topped out at 42 stories. The project will feature 90 condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedroom layouts with interiors by Deborah Berke Partners.
The Museum of Ice Cream has returned to New York City, but this time in a 25,000-square-foot permanent outpost in Downtown Manhattan. Known simply as MOIC, the brand’s flagship location will occupy three floors of 558 Broadway in SoHo.
