The affordable housing lottery has launched for 86-15 Rockaway Boulevard, a four-story residential building in Ozone Park, Queens. The 13,900-square-foot development is designed by Lu Ning Architecture and yields 20 units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are six units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $54,858 to $159,640.
Closings are well underway for Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill‘s 1,550-foot-tall, 131-story Central Park Tower at 217 West 57th Street. Located on Midtown‘s coveted Billionaires’ Row, this marks a major step in the final stages of the world’s tallest residential building, which is also the tallest structure in the Western Hemisphere by roof height. Extell is developing the project with an expected $4 billion sellout on the 179 units marketed by Corcoran Sunshine and Extell Marketing Group.
Work is wrapping up on Fifteen Laight Street, a Class A office conversion and expansion in Tribeca. Designed by Gensler and developed by the Vanbarton Group, the $141 million project involved the addition of two floors atop the former six-story structure, as well as a complete recladding of its exterior with a modern façade of floor-to-ceiling glass and dark metal paneling. The 115,000-square-foot building, which once served as the home of the Tribeca Film Festival, is located between Laight Street and the triangular-shaped Albert Capsouto Park to the north, Varick Street to the south, and the narrow St. Johns Lane to the east. MFS Engineers & Surveyor is the structural engineer overseeing the project.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission will tomorrow review proposals from Madison Realty Capital to construct a new 19-story condominium building at 14-16 Fifth Avenue. Designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects with Hill West, the tower would eventually house 20 units, but will first need a Certificate of Appropriateness from the voting commissioners.
