The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will soon review proposals from Morris Adjmi Architects and Hope Street Capital to construct a seven-story residential building behind a historic church at 959 Sterling Place in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Known today as the Hebron Seventh Day Adventist School, the structure was originally completed in 1889 and designated a New York City landmark in 2011.
Work is progressing on the warm-colored masonry walls and windows of the 230-foot-tall, 24-story expansion at 250 Fifth Avenue in NoMad. Designed by Perkins Eastman, PBDW Architects, and Martin Brudnizki Design Studio and developed by Flaneur Hospitality, the project also includes the renovation of the adjacent 115-year-old bank building designed by McKim, Mead & White. The property will eventually debut as The Fifth Avenue Hotel.
Permits have been filed for a 15-story mixed-use building at 145 Wolcott Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Located between Ferris Street and Conover Street, the lot is near the Smith-9th Streets subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. DRAW Brooklyn under the Red Hook JV, LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
A massive mixed-use housing development may be coming to the St. George neighborhood in Staten Island. The project, which comprises residential and commercial use, affordable housing, open space, and accessory parking, will have two sites: 170-208 Richmond Terrace and 8-26 Stuyvesant Place. Developer Madison Realty Capital under the Richmond SI Owner LLC is seeking approval for zoning map amendments, zoning text amendments, and special permits in order to begin work on the four-building, 911,752-square-foot complex near the St. George waterfront and the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. The site includes 224 Richmond Terrace, a 60,000-square-foot, 40-unit condominium property that Madison Realty Capital acquired in 2012.
Façade work is getting closer to completion at 30 East 31st Street, a 39-story, 479-foot-tall residential tower in NoMad. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Ekstein Development and Pinnacle Real Estate, the slender structure will yield 70,000 square feet and 42 units marketed by Reuveni Real Estate. Residences will average 1,700 square feet apiece with prices ranging from $1.65 million to upwards of $12 million.
