The Landmarks Preservation Commission is now reviewing lighting and signage schemes at 95 Marginal Street in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport Historic District. Architectural renderings from Roman & Williams Buildings and Interiors offer a first look at how the building will enliven Pier 17 and contribute to the greater revitalization of the historic district.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 2885 Marion Avenue, an eight-story mixed-use development in Jerome Park, The Bronx. Designed by OCV Architects, the 118,000-square-foot building will yield 114 units. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 97 units for residents at 50 to 110 percent of the area median income, ranging in eligible income from $38,743 to $155,100.
Construction is now complete on 180 East 88th Street, a 50-story residential tower and the tallest building on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. Designed and developed by DDG with HTO Architects as the architect of record, the 100,242-square-foot structure yields 48 half- and full-floor homes, averaging 2,088 square feet apiece. Global Holdings Management is also part of the development team for the project, which is located along Third Avenue between East 87th and 88th Streets, directly across from a Whole Foods Market and a short walk from the 86th Street station, servicing the 4, 5, and 6 trains.
A recently published Environmental Assessment Statement has revealed Halletts North, a 1-million-square-foot development at the waterfront edge of Astoria, Queens. If the required zoning amendments are approved, the building will house a mix of market-rate and income-restricted apartments, retail space, and a community facility. The scope of construction also includes 525 parking spaces and over 41,000 square feet of publicly accessible area.
Construction is nearing the halfway mark on 50 Trinity Place, a 28-story Hotel Indigo in the Financial District. The 77,310-square-foot tower will yield 173 hotel rooms and is designed by Peter Poon Architects and developed by FIT Investment Corporation, which purchased the Lower Manhattan property in 2012 for $15 million. The site is located at the corner of Trinity Place and Rector Street, diagonally across from Trinity Church.
