Back in January of 2017, YIMBY reported on new job applications for a site spanning 265-267 Broadway, in Tribeca. Gene Kaufman is designing the tower, and now we have the first look at plans for the project, which will yield a glassy skyscraper peaking 510 feet above the streets below.
Downtown’s condominium boom has so far resulted in several near-supertall towers, with 56 Leonard and 30 Park Place both topping-out in the past few years. Further south, 45 Broad Street promises to become the Financial District’s first legitimate residential supertall, while plans at 125 Greenwich Street have also been advancing. The latter site had previously been anticipated to rise almost 1,400 feet, but after the departure of Michael Shvo from the development team, plans have taken several major turns. Now, Bizzi & Partners has released renderings and filed plans revealing the final design, which will top out 912 feet above the streets below.
Permits were filed for a new mixed-use building in Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy neighborhood this past spring, and now YIMBY can reveal the rendering for the project, which will rise at 1190 Fulton Street, on the corner of Bedford Avenue. The structure has also seen a slight bump in height, from eight to ten floors.
New York City’s various media publications have been reporting on the worsening transit crisis with increasing frequency, and as the headlines make clear, the state of the subway is bleak. But combining what’s already-happening with what’s impending begs the question no one seems to be asking. In a city where subterranean infrastructure is already decaying quite rapidly, when will rising tides of increasing frequency result in a transition away from underground transit?
Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood has seen substantial revitalization over the past decade, and another empty lot will soon add to the continued improvements at 722-733 Myrtle Avenue, on the corner of Sanford Street. There, JMS Realty Corporation is planning an eight-story mixed-use development, which is part of a larger rezoning application including several nearby sites.
