This week New York State Homes and Community Renewal, New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and developer CAMBA Housing Ventures, an affiliate of CAMBA, Inc. announced the closing of construction financing to the tune of $164 million for an affordable and supportive housing development in Bedford Park, The Bronx. Located at 261 East 202nd Street and 270 East 203rd Street, the two 11-story buildings will be known as CHV 202nd and 203rd Street, and offer 323 residential units and supportive services to the formerly homelessness and seniors. Aufgang Architects is designing the project.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 23-33 Astoria Boulevard in Astoria, Queens. Located between 23rd Street and Crescent Street, the interior lot is west of the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Perry Moradof under the Astocrest Holding LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Exterior work is progressing on 28 & 7, a 12-story office building at 322-326 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea. Designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and developed by Klövern AB and GDSNY, the structure will yield 105,000 square feet of commercial space leased by CBRE. Triton Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and West 28th Street.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is currently reviewing updated proposals to construct a new six-story commercial building in Manhattan’s NoHo Historic District. Located at 27 East 4th Street, the existing site is currently occupied by a single-story garage that would be demolished.
Today’s housing lottery round-up features two buildings with affordable units on Housing Connect with deadlines closing within the next seven days. Unfortunately, an update to the Housing Connect website this week has apparently left the system rather glitchy, as it now lists incorrect numbers of units remaining, and the photos and renderings have similarly become defunct, all in the midst of New York City’s worst housing crisis since the 1930s.
