Back in November of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of a six-story, 16-unit residential building planned at 15 West 119th Street, in Harlem. Construction is now underway on the project, which has reached three stories above street level and continues to rise, Harlem+Bespoke reports. Since our last report, the new building applications have been amended slightly. They indicate a six-story, 13-unit building that will measure 13,813 square feet. The apartments should average 824 square feet apiece, and amenities include a storage room for eight bikes, recreational space in the cellar, and a rooftop terrace. Since the units also come with balconies, condominiums may be in the works. Pielet Brothers Construction is the developer, while Design + Urbanism Architectural is designing (replacing Melamed Architect). Completion can probably be expected in 2017.
Redsky Capital is planning to conduct renovations on the two-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 159 North 3rd Street and 158-170 North 4th Street, in Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Bedford Avenue Station on the L train. The property owner recently secured a $19 million loan to refinance debt and to fund the project, according to Commercial Observer. Ground-floor retail space totals 48,860 square feet, while 27 rental apartments currently spread across 25,510 square feet of residential space on the second floor. Roughly 21,000 square feet of retail is vacant, although the entire block-thru building is expected to receive renovations and upgrades. Current retailers in the building include a Foodtown supermarket, and the restaurants Umani Burger, Sweetgreen, and by CHLOE.

Back in January of 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the eight-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 372 Broadway, in TriBeCa.

Curbed NY was the first to report on the project’s sales launch.
Property owner Joseph Molino, doing business as KDC of Staten Island, has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 18-20 Adams Avenue, in Grant City, located three blocks from the Jefferson Avenue station on the Staten Island Railway. Each will measure 3,970 square feet, with one residential unit on the ground floor and the second located across the second and third floors. Across both houses, the units should average a family-sized 1,546 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Michael Deruvo & Associates Architects is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed late last year to remove the site’s existing single-story home.
