This week, COOKFOX Architects appeared before the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to alter previously approved designs for the new Giorgio Armani flagship boutique and residences. Located at 760 Madison Avenue on the corner of East 65th Street, the new development will rise 12 stories. The Armani boutique will occupy the lower levels of the structure with 19 residences positioned above. Alterations pertain exclusively to the exterior massing and materials of the building’s façade and were reportedly inspired by existing historic properties in the surrounding Upper East Side neighborhood.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 648 Midwood Street in Wingate, Brooklyn. Located between Albany Avenue and Troy Avenue, the lot is eight blocks southeast of the Sterling Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Yedid Builders is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a 7-story apartment building at 1233 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Located between Rochester Avenue and Buffalo Avenue, the interior lot is one block east of the Utica Avenue subway station, serviced by the 3, 4, and 5 trains. Bluejay Management is the developer for the project.
Construction has topped out on One South First, formally called 260 Kent Avenue, in the Williamsburg waterfront development of Domino Park. This is the second new structure to rise from the master plan that aims to revitalize the site of the Domino Sugar factory. The reinforced concrete building now stands 435 feet high and will soon yield 330 rentals, 66 affordable units, and 150,000 square feet of office space among 22 floors, as well as 13,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. COOKFOX is the architect of the tower while Two Trees Management is the developer.
YIMBY has exclusive new photographs of the interiors and skyline views from 341 39th Street, a newly renovated commercial building in the Sunset Park development of Sunset Yards. The 200,000-square-foot mixed-use building contains ground-floor retail space, tenant amenities, and large-scale murals by Brooklyn-based artist Mike Perry, called Park Sunset. Madison Realty Capital is the developer of the site.
