The new dome addition atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is now fully enclosed in glass. The renovation and addition project is designed by BKSK Architects. Reading International (RDI) is the developer and Edifice Real Estate Partners is the owners representative. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic building, which overlooks Union Square.
Construction is expected to break ground this month on a six-story modular building at 58 Grattan Street in Bushwick. One of the first structures of its kind in the neighborhood, the project is also the premiere North American development from Admares, a global real estate and construction firm based in Finland.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 38 East 11th Street in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Located between Caton Avenue and Church Avenue, the interior lot is a short walk west to the Church Avenue subway station, serviced by the B and Q trains. Brooklyn-based Prospect Developers II under the 38 Stratford Holdings LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
YIMBY and Instagram user Sinaevart has created a new set of renderings depicting how Foster + Partner’s original 2006 design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center, would look among the current skyline. The renderings come on the heels of the reports that Norman Foster is in the midst of revamping the design after developer Silverstein Properties returned to him to complete the final component of the World Trade Center complex. Work on the project has been stalled since the early 2010s.
Construction has passed the halfway point on 199 Chrystie Street, a 14-story, 39,188-square-foot condominium building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Progress has been swift since YIMBY’s last visit in April 2019, when excavation was still underway. Located near the intersection of Chrystie Street and Stanton Street, the project is designed by R. Wade Johnson Design and is being developed by KD Sagamore Capital, which purchased the plot for $20 million. Two buildings, 199 and 201 Chrystie Street, were demolished to clear the way for the new development.
