Omni New York has revealed renderings for the Morris II Apartments taking shape in The Bronx. Located at 2980 Park Avenue, the project arrives as phase two of a multi-building affordable housing project owned and developed by Omni New York.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 2111 White Plains Road, in Pelham Gardens, The Bronx. Located between Lydig Avenue and Maran Place, the corner site is situated close to the Bronx Park Expressway. Two blocks north is the Pelham Parkway subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Jonathan Sopher, principal at Sopher Real Estate, is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Demolition permits have been filed for the one-story building at 151 Broome Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Located between Clinton Street and Pitt Street, the mid-block structure has been home to Little Star of Broome Street, an early childhood center servicing the neighborhood. Kevin Cronin of the non-profit organization Grand Street Guild is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Earlier this month, the City Planning Commission approved proposals for four new skyscrapers coming to the Two Bridges section of the Lower East Side. The tallest of the bunch will be 247 Cherry Street, adjacent to the site of Extell’s One Manhattan Square. The upcoming 1,008-foot-tall residential skyscraper will be designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development, and is the 11th tallest tower underway in the Five Boroughs. This supertall is the only project on YIMBY’s end-of-year list where site work has not yet begun, although with City Planning approval now secured, that is hopefully a matter of imminency.
As reported by YIMBY in August of 2018, GDS Development filed permits to develop a 22-floor commercial tower at the corner of 31st Street and Broadway. Renderings have finally arrived from architects Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill (SOM) and reveal a minimalist, glowing façade and several open-air terraces.
