Construction for the Hilton Grand Vacation Hotel at 12 East 48th Street is making substantial headway, as the facade and window systems begin to take shape. The 31-story hotel is being designed by Handel Architects and will eventually contain 161 rooms, an outdoor terrace, and ground floor retail.
Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the filing of permits for 761 East 233rd Street. Designed by Badaly Architect PLLC, the seven-story residential building will be located in The Bronx’s Wakefield neighborhood. A look at the newly released rendering of the project reveals a red brick and white cement block facade. The ground floor of this corner lot development appears to house the 52-car parking garage.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 2321 Belmont Avenue, in Belmont, The Bronx. Located between East 183rd Street and Crescent Avenue, the interior site is five blocks west of the Bronx Zoo. Less than a mile north is the Fordham train stop on the MetroNorth, and the 182nd-183rd Streets Station is less than one mile to the west, serviced by the B and D trains. Golan Darvish of Belmont Ave 2321 Corporation is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Major progress has been made for Brooklyn’s first supertall over the past several weeks. Excavation has continued apace, and more materials have also been delivered to 9 DeKalb Avenue as the year wraps up. The tower is the 6th-tallest building under construction in YIMBY’s end-of-year countdown, and will dramatically change the skyline of Brooklyn in the coming years. Designed by SHoP Architects and developed by JDS Development and the Chetrit Group, the 1,066-foot-tall residential and mixed-use project will house approximately 500 housing units atop its rejuvenation of an historic retail podium.
Back in June of 2015, the McSam Hotel Group disclosed plans to incorporate a portion of the façade of a six-story Gothic church, at 334 West 36th Street into a new hotel development. Today, construction is nearly complete, with interior fit outs underway. Contrary to the depiction in the rendering, it appears the old Gothic church was completely razed, with a facsimile of the facade replacing the extant original.
