Construction at 196 Orchard Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan has reached a new milestone, with the installation of the building’s glazed-brick façade nearing completion. The 11-story residential building stands above Houston Street, beside Katz Delicatessen. It reaches a height of 120 feet, thanks to the purchase of air rights from the deli.
Permits have been filed for two three-story townhouse buildings at 85 and 87 Calyer Street, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The site is seven blocks away from the Greenpoint subway station, serviced by the G trains. Nine blocks away is the Greenpoint ferry terminal, with service to Long Island City, Midtown, Downtown Brooklyn, and Downtown Manhattan. Poise Real Estate Group is responsible for the development.
Back in February, YIMBY reported on filings for a new residential building at 1893 Crotona Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. Now, we have the first look at another new project coming to the same block, at 1899 Crotona Avenue, designed by Badaly Architects, and under development by Paul Gjonaj.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 135 Frost Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the Graham Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains. Frost Terrace LLC will be responsible for the development.
One of the more interesting new designs coming to Manhattan will be at 50 West 66th Street, where Extell will soon be adding yet another punctuation mark to the city’s skyline. The site is just six blocks away from Columbus Circle, and down the block from Central Park. The building was last on our radar in late 2017, with the news that the project would dramatically increase in size to become the tallest tower on the Upper West Side, taking away the title from 200 Amsterdam Avenue before it could even begin rising. Now, demolition has officially begun on the assemblage’s last structural occupant, while excavation continues apace across the land that has already been cleared.
