The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently reviewed proposals from Fogarty Finger Architecture to renovate and expand existing retail area within the landmarked 15 Park Row tower in Manhattan’s Financial District. The structure was originally constructed in 1899, then converted in the early 2000s to accommodate rental apartments with ground-floor retail area.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story residential building at 20-50 Nameoke Avenue in Far Rockaway, Queens. Located at the intersection of Redfern Avenue and Nameoke Avenue, the corner lot is near the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue subway station, serviced by the A train. Federation Nameoke Housing Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction has topped out on 302 Broadway, a six-story mixed-use residential building located next to the elevated Marcy Avenue subway platform in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The reinforced concrete structure stands 65 feet tall and is currently covered in a thick layer of scaffolding and black netting. Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm PAUL and developed by Kazi Billah, 302 Broadway spans 26,070 square feet and will include 5,790 square feet of ground-floor retail space, 5,790 square feet of medical offices on the second floor, a 12-car garage on the third floor, and 24 residential units from the fourth to sixth floors. The site is bounded by Broadway, Marcy Avenue, and South Ninth Street, and overlooks the southbound lanes of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway.
Work is wrapping up at 187 Kent Avenue, where the brick exterior and wraparound row of ground-floor arches are complete. The new 140,036-square-foot mixed-use residential structure stands seven stories high between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The industrial-inspired red masonry façade with its scattered pattern of white bricks covers all four sides and surrounds the grid of large windows and balconies with subtle decorative metal railings. Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. is the architect of record, while CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million, is the developer. Leasing is now available for the 96 units.
Minrav Development has released the first renderings of the interiors of 368 Third Avenue, which recently topped out in Kips Bay, Manhattan. Designed in partnership by Paris Forino and SLCE Architects, the 35-story condominium tower will debut as “VU” and will comprise 100 individual homes. Accommodations range from studios to three-bedroom spreads with prices expected to start at $840,000 when sales launch this spring.
