New renderings have been revealed of the 43-story, 50-unit mixed-use tower under development at 45 Park Place, in TriBeCa. Depictions of the future tower can be seen at Curbed NY. Excavation work was underway at the site in December, according to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. A tower crane was also assembled on-site last year.
88 and 90 Lexington Avenue were once office buildings—an Art Deco classic and a significantly less attractive 1950s neighbor. Both became rent stabilized apartments, until developer HFZ Capital scooped up the properties between 26th and 27th Streets in July 2013. Now they’re being transformed into condominiums, and YIMBY got a look inside.
Something unusual occurred on Tuesday: the Landmarks Preservation Commission, after rejecting what one commissioner called a “juicy” expansion of a Crown Heights house two months ago, ended up approving an even larger expansion of the structure.
The 39,579-square-foot hotel at 37-11 23rd Street is on track to join northern Long Island City’s mushrooming crop of lodgings. Construction permits categorize the 93-unit property as a “transient hotel,” a term generally used to describe shelters. The 11-story building towers over the industrial northwest corner of Long Island City.
Construction has topped out on the 21-story, 110-unit mixed-use building under development at 237 Duffield Street in Downtown Brooklyn. YIMBY has a photo of the structure, which also reveals that façade installation is underway. The latest building permits indicate the project rises 210 feet to its main roof, not including bulkhead elements, and encompasses 111,775 square feet.
