Morris Adjmi Architects will return to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission to present updated proposals for 430 West Broadway. The new office building was originally designed with a grey brick façade and large, metal-framed windows meant to evoke the historic glass-windowed sidewalks seen throughout SoHo and TriBeCa neighborhoods.
Construction on 321 Warren Street, aka The Lively, has reached the eighteenth and final floor over downtown Jersey City. As of YIMBY’s last update back in early November, the mixed-use tower had just climbed above the double-height ground floor space, reaching the fifth floor. Three months later, the reinforced concrete structure is almost at its pinnacle. The building is being designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC. There will be 217,000 square feet of interior space when completed.
Permits have been filed for a six-story apartment building at 256 North 9th Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between Roebling Street and Havemeyer Street, the interior lot is four blocks north of the Metropolitan Avenue – Lorimer Street subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. Idan Shitrit under the 256 North 9th Street LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The massive rectangular-shaped project taking up a full block at 85 Jay Street has officially been dubbed “Front and York,” and today YIMBY has a full update on site progress. Bound by Front Street and York Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn, the 1.1 million square foot residential complex will soon sprout from what was one of the neighborhood’s last and largest undeveloped lots. The new building, with retail shops on the ground floor and a mixture of condominiums and rentals above, is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and is being developed by CIM Group and LIVWRK.
Designed with a symmetrically curvilinear space frame with triangular-shaped glass panels, construction progresses on the new addition at 44 Union Square. When completed, this contemporary addition will create two new floors that overlook Union Square. The total square footage of the 90-year-old landmarked mixed-use building will increase to 70,348 square feet. BKSK Architects is the designer, while Edifice Real Estate Partners is developing the property. CNY Group is in charge of the construction and renovations.
