The foundations are taking shape at 148 East 78th Street on the Upper East Side, where a 205-foot-tall residential building is set to rise. Located at the corner of East 78th Street and Lexington Avenue, the structure is designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Midwood Management Corp. Construction workers are currently forming the reinforced concrete perimeter walls for the condominium project, which will yield 26 residences averaging 2,600 square feet each.
Work on the foundation and retaining walls is underway at 302 Broadway in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn in preparation for a six-story mixed-use building. Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm PAUL and developed by Kazi Billah, the 26,070-square-foot project will stand 65 feet tall and contain 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 units from the fourth to sixth floors.
Following approvals from New York City’s Department of Buildings, Yedid Builders is expected to begin construction soon on a new five-story residential property in Wingate, Brooklyn. Located at 648 Midwood Street, the building will yield 7,913 square feet including ten individual units.
Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 1953 Wallace Avenue in Van Nest, The Bronx. Located between Rhinelander Avenue and Bronxdale Avenue, the lot is five blocks east of the Bronx Park East subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Marricco Family Limited is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The curtain wall is steadily rising at 1059 Third Avenue, a topped-out 481-foot-tall mixed-use tower on the Upper East Side. Designed by Manuel Glas Architects and developed by Real Estate Inverlad and Third Palm Capital, the reinforced concrete structure rises 30 stories and will yield 127,000 square feet. There will be a total of 38 condominiums spread over 103,900 square feet of residential space, averaging around 2,740 square feet apiece. Our last update was about a year ago and YIMBY recently stopped by to see what has happened since.
