Nicknamed the “Pearl On The Park,” and located next to the Beekman Hotel at 5 Beekman Street and directly adjacent to COOKFOX’s 59-story residential tower rising at 25 Park Row, 1 Beekman Street has officially topped-out at 25 stories in height. Construction has progressed quickly over the past year, and demolition and excavation of the site only began two years ago.
Permits have been filed for a 16-story long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z, in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. The site is just two blocks away from the Sheepshead Bay subway station, serviced by the B and Q trains. SB1 Holdings LLC is listed as responsible for the development.
For the second time in 2018, YIMBY has a new look for Five World Trade Center. The latest rendering was found by a reader on the project’s fencing in the Financial District. The image shows a glassy building with a triangular motif reminiscent of the David Childs-designed 1 WTC. The depiction is roughly 70 stories in height, which could indicate yet another supertall is planned for the area.
Last December, YIMBY revealed the renderings for 399 Sands Street in the Brooklyn Navy Yard Industrial Park. Now, the official groundbreaking for the nine-story office building has occurred. The structure will house between 700 to 1,000 jobs once complete. It is part of the $1 billion redevelopment project dedicated to fueling New York City’s economy with infrastructure for 10,000 new jobs in manufacturing and creative businesses. The non-profit Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) is realizing the project through private developers, and Steiner NYC is responsible for 399 Sands Street.
Pending LPC Approval, 405-409 West 13th Street could undergo a fresh renovation of its aging storefront, and a vertical enlargement from three to six stories.
