The project team behind a sprawling senior housing complex in Staten Island recently returned to the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) in an effort to gain enough support to begin work on the new development. Located atop a small hill at 4500 Arthur Kill Road, plans for the development include construction of 11 residential buildings surrounding the historic Kreischer House.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 822 Evergreen Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Located at the intersection of Piling Street and Evergreen Avenue, the lot is three blocks from the Bushwick Avenue-Aberdeen Street subway station, serviced by the L train. The Par Group under the Medford Ber LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Façade work is progressing on Seaport Residences, a 670-foot-tall residential skyscraper at 161 Maiden Lane in the Financial District. Formally addressed as One Seaport, the topped-out 60-story building is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Fortis Property Group LLC and will yield 80 units. Groves & Co is serving as the interior designer for the 200,000-square-foot structure, and sales will be handled by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. Ray Builders is the current contractor for the project.
With the application review and public hearing process in full swing, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is busy working through a backlog of proposed projects. One of the more interesting proposals includes a new commercial building designed by Morris Adjmi Architects at 1162 Broadway in the Madison Square North Historic District. The LPC reviewed the proposals on Tuesday, May 12.
Permits have been filed for Freedom Village, a 13-story residential building at 268 East 2nd Street in Manhattan’s East Village. Located at the intersection of Avenue C and East 2nd Street, the corner lot is three avenue blocks east of the 2nd Avenue subway station, serviced by the F train. Non-profit Barrier Free Living is listed as the owner behind the applications. YIMBY revealed renderings and details of a housing development at 270 East 2nd Street by this developer in December 2018. It is unclear if the design have changed with this permit filing.
