Back in November, YIMBY reported on demolition permits for three adjacent four-story buildings at the corner of 120-124 Lexington Avenue, in Kips Bay, Manhattan. New construction permits have now been filed for a 10-story mixed-use building at 120 Lexington Avenue. The site, between 28th and 29th streets, is located one block east of the 28th Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Four blocks away is Madison Square Park. Daniel Dabakaroff of Skyland Management is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 290 East 149th Street, in The Bronx. Located on East 149th Street between Morris Avenue and Courtlandt Avenue in Mott Haven, the site is two blocks west of the 3 Avenue – 149 Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Peter Serpico, principal of Omnibuild, is listed as behind the applications.
Situated at the southwestern corner of Fifth Avenue and West 29th Street is the site of a proposed 1,009-foot condominium tower, known as 262 Fifth Avenue. Renderings were first released in late 2017, showing the very skinny and slender residential building towering over NoMad and Midtown South. Composed of a mix of glass and aluminum walls, the supertall would certainly stand out on the skyline for its height and profile. After the DOB approved plans back in October of 2017, the site was quickly cleared of the previously extant low-rise buildings, however, activity has come to a grinding halt since then. Boris Kuzinez of Five Points Development is developing the tower, while the architect is Meganom, a Russian design firm from Moscow.
A new, mixed-use hotel tower has topped-out just south of Koreatown, in Manhattan, at 292 Fifth Avenue. From developer Sam Chang, the property is his second Midtown hotel currently approaching its completion date.
Located between Schenck Avenue and Barbey Street in East New York, Brooklyn, permits are up for a new residential project at 518-523 Belmont Avenue. Nearby transit access is two city blocks west, at the Van Siclen Avenue subway station, serviced by the A and C trains on Pitkin Avenue. The project consists of supportive housing in conjunction with the New York City Department of Housing and Preservation’s Supportive Housing Loan Program.
