New York developer Midtown Equities has partnered with architecture firm Gensler to construct a rooftop extension atop one of Battery Park’s oldest extant structures, known today as One Broadway. The commercial office building was originally completed in 1882, and sits at the same address once occupied by George Washington’s New York headquarters. Considering the age and rich history of the building, approvals are required by New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story residential building at 1580 Story Avenue in Soundview, The Bronx. Located between Morrison Street and the Bronx River Parkway, the lot is three blocks south of the Morrison Avenue-Soundview subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Joel Braver of Boynton Properties LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 363 East 145th Street in Mott Haven, The Bronx. Located between Third Avenue and Willis Avenue, the lot is four blocks south of the 3 Avenue-149 Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Golan Darvish of 145 Corp is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Work at the corner lot for 1241 Broadway in NoMad is seeing a lot of activity in preparation for a 22-story, SOM-designed commercial office building. Excavation on the perimeter of the site is finishing up, while work on the reinforced concrete foundations and core walls is happening simultaneously. This is a rapid change of pace since YIMBY last visited the Midtown location a couple months ago, when it was still quiet. The future 318-foot-tall, 170,000-square-foot tower is being developed by GDS Development and Sweden-based Klovern. Triton Construction is currently in charge of building the structure.
YIMBY has exclusive new renderings of 814 Bedford Avenue, a five-story mixed-use residential building for which Karl Fisher is the architect, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
