A $57 million renovation project is now underway at McCarley Gardens, a 15-acre affordable housing complex in Buffalo, New York. Planned renovations will focus on improving the property’s energy efficiency, quality of life for the residents, and existing infrastructure.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 3508 Tryon Avenue, a seven-story residential building in Norwood, The Bronx. Designed by Tabriz Group Design and developed by Peter Persaud, the structure yields 24 residences. Available on NYC Housing Connect are eight units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $54,858 to $167,570.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 575 Grand Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between Lorimer Street and Leonard Street, the lot is four blocks from the Metropolitan Avenue-Lorimer Street subway station, serviced by the L and G trains. Yitzchok Katz of Developing NY State is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Occupancy is available for Selene, a 63-story residential skyscraper at 100 East 53rd Street in Midtown. Designed by Norman Foster of Foster + Partners, the slender 711-foot-tall reinforced concrete edifice is wrapped in a sleek undulating glass curtain wall and yields 94 bespoke residences with prices starting at $1.875 million dollars. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is handling sales and marketing of the homes, which range from pied-à-terre one-bedrooms to sprawling full-floor layouts. 100 East 53rd Street is located at the corner of Lexington Avenue and East 53rd Street, directly across Lexington Avenue from the Citigroup Center and directly behind Seagram Building, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The sponsor for Selene is an affiliate of Vanke US, and RFR is no longer involved with the sponsor entity or the ownership of the building.
Construction is complete on 102 Charlton Street, a 21-story residential building in Hudson Square. Designed by Ismael Leyva Architects and developed by Lalezarian Properties, the 210-foot-tall structure yields 59,323 square feet with 61 residential units in a mix of studios, one- and two-bedroom layouts, and full-floor spreads. The property is located between Greenwich and Hudson Streets and is surrounded by a wave of new construction including headquarters for Disney and Google.
