Earlier this year, the LPC approved the conversion of a five-story commercial structure into a six-story, three-unit residential building at 41 Great Jones Street, in NoHo. Now Community Board 2 has approved the building for residential use, according to Real Estate Weekly. The units will be condominiums — two duplexes and a triplex — spanning a total of 13,333 square feet. The exterior will also be restored, and construction is slated to begin this November. Blumenfeld Development Group is developing, while Morris Adjmi Architects is designing.
YIMBY noted in January of this year that the Durst Organization’s 32-story, 709-unit mixed-use building at 625 West 57th Street was nearly topped out, and now the project is structurally complete and receiving its final curtain wall, per DesignBoom. The building, which has a pinnacle 467 feet above street level, was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group, and has been dubbed Via. Completion is expected in the coming months, and YIMBY has chronicled the project’s construction since the start, with updates as far back as August 2013.
YIMBY has noticed all kinds of interesting conversions in the industrial area between Morgan Avenue and Jefferson Avenue in Buswhick, where restrictive zoning and rising rents have led landlords to consider transforming old warehouses into night clubs and artist studios.
