After our first look at Morris Adjmi’s submission to the Landmark Preservation Commission for 419 Broadway back in October, the SoHo building has been approved following a redesign. The accepted proposal has seen a height reduction, as well as a change to the bulkhead.
Permits have been filed for a 14-story mixed-use building at 199 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side. Ian Schrager’s Herzog and de Meuron-designed 215 Chrystie Street is just a few doors down, and its new neighbor will borrow from the same playbook, with massive condominiums indicated in the new building applications.
Permits have been filed for a 312,880 square foot mixed-use building at 1755 Watson Avenue in Soundview, Bronx. The project was made possible after the site was rezoned from R5 to R7A. R5 zoning allows for a floor area ration (FAR) development of 1.25, which would typically produce a three or four-story attached house. R7A zoning allows for 4.0 FAR, and a maximum height limit of 85 feet, the exact height of this new building. Azimuth Development Group is responsible for the development.
As YIMBY reported back in October, construction is nearly complete for the 12-story 280 Ashland Place, in the Downtown Cultural District of Brooklyn, and now, leasing has officially commenced. The project has been named Caesura, a term for the pause in the middle of a line of music poetry. Its next-door neighbor, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, gives the inspiration. Jonathan Rose Companies LLC is behind the building, which had previously gone by the address of 15 Lafayette Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a 21-story mixed-use building at 214 West 72nd Street, on the Upper West Side. The development will sit right on Broadway, the neighborhood’s main artery. The 72nd Street-Broadway Subway Station is just an intersection away, serviced by the 1, 2, and 3 trains. Further down, two avenues to the East is the 72nd Street station on Central Park, serviced by the A, B, and C trains. Manhattan-based SK Development will be responsible for the project.
