Plans have been announced for a new seven-story office building on the Greenpoint Waterfront, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings for the site. The project is targeted to satisfy the demand for more small Class-A office space in the rising Greenpoint and North Williamsburg areas, which have seen a significant boom in new residential development. Simon Baron Development is the developer behind the uniquely-shaped structure, and FXCollaborative is responsible for the design.
Developers recently approached New York City’s Department of City Planning for zoning approvals to permit the construction of a new 9-story, mixed-use building in The Bronx, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings for the project. The site would include a combination of affordable and market-rate housing, ground floor retail, office space, community facilities, and expanded parking accommodations for both public and residential use.
Standing in the heart of Tribeca at the corner of Chambers Street and Church Street is 108 Chambers Street, a low-rise 10-story mixed-use residential building designed by Woods Bagot Architects and developed by Greystone Development. Now, the facade is beginning to be installed along Church Street, with waterproofing preceding glass panels. The concrete structure’s exterior will soon be faced in a mixture of glass and dark angled panels.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use development at 38 West 8th Street, one block away from Washington Square Park. The site is off the beaten path for Greenwich Village, and the extant structure is not of noteworthy or particular beauty. Despite this, the odds are high this project will attract undeserved criticism from local rent-gouging homeowners fearful of any increase in neighborhood housing supply. Joseph Straus of the Straus Group is listed as responsible for the development.
