An anonymous Staten Island-based LLC has filed applications for two two-story, two-family houses at 28-34 Clawson Street, in Grant City, on Staten Island’s East Shore. The buildings will measure 4,054 square feet each. Across both, the residential units should average 1,338 square feet apiece. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 100-foot-wide, 10,000-square-foot assemblage is occupied by two single-story homes. Demolition permits were filed in October.
Alchemy Properties is developing a 316-foot-tall condominium tower at the corner of 30th Street and Sixth Avenue in NoMad, and Tectonic swung by the site recently to document the latest progress. The development, known as NOMA, has reached three stories above street level at 50 West 30th Street.
Pearl Paint, an icon at the northern edge of TriBeCa, closed over two years ago, pushed out because the rent was too high. The larger of its buildings, at 304-306 Canal Street, is already under redevelopment. Now, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is overseeing the redevelopment of 308-310 Canal Street. The agency held a public hearing on it last Tuesday, but no approval was granted.
Renderings have been revealed of the two-towered, 1,350-unit mixed-use project planned at 260 South Street, on the Lower East Side. As currently proposed, the towers would stand 69 and 62 stories in height, rising 798 feet and 728 feet to their roofs, respectively. Twenty-five percent of the units would rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery, the Lo-Down reported, and some senior housing will also be incorporated. Plans are still in place to expand the ground-floor retail footprint of the existing 26-story Section 8 residential buildings, called Lands End II, at 265 Cherry Street and 275 Cherry Street, which contain a total of 491 apartments. Renovations will be made to existing park spaces.
Construction is well underway on a four-building, 1.2-million-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed Tangram, in downtown Flushing. The project is located on much of the block bound by College Point Boulevard, Prince Street, and 37th and 39th avenues. Work appears to be above street level on the 13-story, 192-unit residential building at 133-27 39th Avenue. The condominium residential units in this building should average 987 square feet, per the latest building permits. Also under construction is a four-level, 377-car underground parking garage.
