A part of Chelsea Piers that saw historic ocean liners RMS Lusitania and RMS Mauretania sail out of New York, as well as the arrival of The Titanic’s survivors aboard The Carpathia in 1912, is finally ready to begin its new life. Cunard’s former Pier 54 is now being transformed into an iconic floating park above the Hudson River called Pier 55, designed by Thomas Heatherwick.
This May, permits were filed for a new 150,000 square foot mixed-use building at 980 Westchester Avenue. Today, YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for the building to come, with design by GF55 Partners. The project will reactivate an underdeveloped lot in Foxhurst, The Bronx. The site is a block away from the Simpson Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains.
L+M Development Partners has officially launched leasing for a new 12-story rental property at 751 East 6th Street. Known as “The Niko East Village,” the building will contain 82 market-rate rentals, a mix of indoor and outdoor amenities, and ground-floor retail.
The 2nd Avenue subway line is continuing to work its magic on the Upper East Side. Just three blocks from the Q and R train’s 86th Street subway station, permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use development at 333 East 82nd Street. Sean Lavin of Lavin Development will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a new three-story building at the site of the former Angel Guardian Home in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. The Sisters of Mercy sold the development in December of 2017 for an undisclosed sum of money, Brownstoner reports. Brooklyn-based Basic Groups Corp. is listed as responsible for the design.
