Douglaston Development, New York State Homes and Community Renewal, and New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development recently announced the closing of construction financing for a $93.5 million mixed-use affordable housing development. The senior housing development addressed as 2856 Webster Avenue will bring 188 units to the Bedford Park neighborhood in The Bronx.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 14-41 Broadway in Astoria, Queens. Located between 14th Street and 21st Street, the interior lot is five blocks west of the Broadway subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. Steven Rigogiannis of Plaza North 1031 is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is now complete on the Pendry Manhattan West Hotel, a 281-foot-tall mixed-use structure at Four Manhattan West in Midtown West. Designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill and developed by Brookfield Properties, the 21-story project makes up one of five separate buildings in the Manhattan West master plan, which sits directly across Tenth Avenue from Hudson Yards. The property is located along West 33rd Street between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, wedged between One Manhattan West and Five Manhattan West, and will yield 164 guest rooms as well as condominiums on the upper levels.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is now reviewing proposals from Howard Hughes Corporation to construct a new pair of high-rise towers at 250 Water Street and a multi-phase expansion of the South Street Seaport Museum in Manhattan’s Financial District. The developer has selected Skidmore, Owings & Merrill as lead architect with supporting design services from JHPA and historic preservation experts Higgins Quasebarth & Partners.
Demolition could begin soon at 777 Eighth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, where a 27-story hotel has been proposed. From the prolific architect-developer duo of Gene Kaufman Architect and McSam Hotel Group, as well as additional owner TSGL 8th Avenue LLC, the building will rise from a 5,000-square-foot plot on the west side of the block between West 47th and 48th Streets, not far from Times Square.
