City officials have approved plans submitted by Slate Property Group to construct a new mixed-use skyscraper in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at 570 Fulton Street, the structure is designed by Hill West Architects and will contain a combination of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, and office space.
Permits were filed for a new four-story residential building at 144 Bleecker Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Simon Kaufman of YS Realty is listed as the owner on the permits, and Diego B. Aguilera of Diego Aguilera Architects is responsible for the design. The site is located between Wilson and Central Avenues. The lot measures 7,982 square feet and sits next to St. Barbara’s Roman Catholic Church. The closest subway train is the M at the Knickerbocker Avenue/Myrtle Avenue station. The J train can be found to the south along Broadway.
Another major milestone was reached last Friday in conjunction with the celebratory opening of Hudson Yards. 35 Hudson Yards, a 1,000-foot-tall, Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed supertall, launched sales of its 143 residential units. David Childs is the architect of the glass and Jura limestone skyscraper, which is the tallest residential tower at Hudson Yards. Related Companies and Oxford Properties Group are the two developers for the 1.1-million-square-foot tower. The interiors are being designed by Tony Ingrao while sales are being handled by Related Sales and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group.
With sales expected to launch this Spring, new renderings and a teaser site are now live for 98 Front Street, one of the latest ground-up condominium developments in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Designed by ODA, a New York-based architecture studio, the building’s cubic structure resembles a game of Tetris and playfully incorporates a number of private outdoor terraces. The building will contain 165 residences that range from studio to four-bedroom homes. Floor plans begin at 400 square feet and reach upward of 2,000 square feet.
Construction of a 419-foot-tall hotel at 140 West 28th Street in Chelsea is passing the halfway mark. Workers are currently pouring the 29th floor and getting ready to create the form work for the 30th floor. The tower is designed by Gene Kaufman Architect and is being developed by Eastern Consolidated. The property successfully secured a $121.35 million debt and equity package last year thanks to the Bank of the Ozarks and Square Mile Capital Management. There will be 526 rooms divided among a Marriott, TownePlace Suites, and Springhill Suites. Each will have its own separate lobby on the ground floor and shared common rooms.
