Space 4 Architecture, aka S4Architecture, has released renderings showing a new design for 226-232 East Broadway on the Lower East Side. The original plans called for two residential towers that would rise with identical architectural languages and surround a landmarked pre-war structure at 228 East Broadway. Now the project shows only one modestly tall building rising to the east of the former nursing home. The Ascend Group is the developer of the site.
The major renovation of lobby and entry areas within 55 Broad Street is now complete and New York YIMBY has exclusive new images from Rudin Management Company. The Financial District office building now features treatments such as marble walls, textured terrazzo flooring, and reflective ceilings to help magnify light within the entry space. Updated security features include electronic turnstiles, reception seating, and increased street-level visibility both from outside and within the building.
Permits have been filed for an 11-story mixed-use building at 337 East 162nd Street in Concourse, The Bronx. Located between Courtlandt Avenue and the Metro North Harlem Line, the corner lot is directly adjacent to the Melrose station on the Metro North train. The site is also eight blocks east of the 161 Street-Yankee Stadium subway station, serviced by the B, D, and 4 trains. New York City Housing Authority is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story apartment building at 831 Forest Avenue in Melrose, The Bronx. Located between East 158th Street and East 160th Street, the interior lot is three blocks west of the Prospect Avenue subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Kambiz Yaghoobian under the Forest LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
YIMBY recently went on a hard hat tour of Brooklyn Point, aka 138 Willoughby Street, in Downtown Brooklyn. At 720 feet high and 68 stories, the reinforced concrete skyscraper is currently the tallest tower in all of Brooklyn, as well as the third and final phase of the City Point complex. Kohn Pedersen Fox is the designer of the new building, while SLCE Architects is serving as the architect of record. The rising glass curtain wall is crossing the halfway mark and will soon enclose the entire edifice in a staggered pattern of double-height glass and white-colored rectangular frames. AD 100 designer Katherine Newman is designing interior spaces. The first closings for the studio to three-bedroom units are expected to begin in early 2020, with pricing starting at $850,000. Coveted New York-based developer Extell is working on other massive projects like One Manhattan Square and Central Park Tower, New York’s current tallest skyscraper by roof height and the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.
