Foundation work is underway on the 25-story, 31-unit mixed-use building under development at 1 Beekman Street, located on the corner of Park Row in the Financial District. The work can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. In September, YIMBY revealed renderings of the project, which is set to encompass 95,285 square feet and rise 299 feet in height to its main roof. Adding the bulkhead brings the tower’s pinnacle to 335 feet. The first four floors will contain 14,583 square feet of commercial space, with retail on the ground floor and offices on the upper three. The residential units, which will be condominiums, are spread across the sixth through 22nd floors. Urban Muse is the developer and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners is the design architect. SLCE Architects is serving as the executive architect and completion is expected in early 2018.
Great Neck, N.Y.-based Adora Realty has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 1510 Fulton Street, in southern Bedford-Stuyvesant.

The residential units, spanning the ground through fourth floors, including a fifth-floor mezzanine level, should average 707 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Sung-Ho Shin’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide, 2,000-square-foot lot is occupied by a single-story retail building. Demolition permits were filed in July.

Two full-floor residential units, averaging 1,000 square feet apiece, will occupy the two top floors. Flushing-based A&T Engineering is the applicant of record.

A nearly century-old garage in the West Village could almost double in size, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission first needs to approve it. Before that can happen, the proposed expansion of 771 Washington Street will need to be refined, the commission said last Tuesday.
