The Landmarks Preservation Commission is now reviewing proposals to renovate a five-story townhouse at 22 East 10th Street in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village Historic District. The scope of work includes removal of the party wall separating 22 and 24 East 10th Street, which will allow the owner to nearly double the home’s residential space.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 53 East 177th Street in Mt. Hope, The Bronx. Located at the intersection of Walton Avenue and East 177th Street, the lot is within walking distance of the Tremont Avenue subway station, serviced by the B and D trains. Mike Schwartz is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction is nearing completion on 533 Pacific Street, aka Post House, an 11-story residential building in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn that is also alternatively addressed as 542 Atlantic Avenue. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by Sterling Town Equities, the 90,000-square-foot structure will yield 41 condominium units and two four-story townhouses. Pro-H Development Inc. is the general contractor for the property, which is located on a through-block parcel between Third Avenue to the west, Pacific Street to the south, and Fourth Avenue to the east.
Work continues to unfold on Manhattan’s largest outdoor roof deck at 341 Ninth Avenue, a ten-story office building in West Chelsea. Tishman Speyer is working with the United States Post Office to redevelop the 2.2 million-square-foot Art Deco-style structure, known as the Morgan North Postal Facility, converting the upper floors into 650,000 square feet of modern office space with a 2.5-acre green roof. The property will also yield 5,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space facing Ninth Avenue. CBRE represented USPS in prior negotiations with Tishman Speyer for the Midtown, Manhattan project, which occupies the full block from Ninth to Tenth Avenues and West 29th to West 30th Streets. Urban Atelier Group is the general contractor for the project.
The New York City Department of Buildings is now reviewing permits to complete a new 16-unit multifamily rental property in the Kingsbridge section of The Bronx. The development represents an assemblage of two neighboring lots at 2838 and 2840 Webb Avenue, which will debut as a pair of two interconnected four-story buildings.
