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.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 111 Mulberry Street, in Little Italy, Manhattan. The site is two blocks east from the Canal Street subway station at Centre Street, serviced by the J and Z trains. Wing Cheung of One Eleven Property LLC is listed as behind the applications.
New construction permits have been filed for a 17-story mixed-use building at 1761 Jerome Avenue, in The Bronx‘s Mount Hope neighborhood.

The development lists Kyle Ervin of Services for the Underserved, a social services organization, as the owner behind the applications. The non-profit has developed several supportive and affordable housing buildings in the borough.
