Back in January, construction was wrapping up on the 12-story, 430-unit residential building at 365 Bond Street, in Gowanus, and now Real Estate Weekly reports the building is nearly complete. Curbed NY also has new renderings of the project, dubbed 365 Bond. The rental apartments will come in a variety of configurations, including studio-, one-bedroom, and townhouse-style layouts, although details for the larger apartments haven’t been made available yet. There will be roughly 40,000 square feet of amenities in the form of a fitness center, a spinning room, a yoga room, multiple lounges, a library, a recreation room, multiple rooftop terraces, a waterfront esplanade, an interior courtyard, and residential and bike storage.There will also be 1,240 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The Lightstone Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects designed the building. MARKZEFF and Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architecture also aided in the design process. Occupancy is expected in April, and construction is currently underway on another 270-unit residential building at 363 Bond Street.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit mixed-income rental project at 221 East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, but now Tahoe Development is swapping plans for a seven-story, 50-unit market-rate condominium building. Welcome2TheBronx reports the developer is abandoning plans to include affordable units due to cost concerns. It would also be the first market-rate condo project in the South Bronx since the 2008 financial crisis. The condos will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, and the new building will contain ground-floor retail space as previously planned. Hudson Square’s Michael Muroff Architect is the architect of record. The existing two-story warehouse is currently being demolished.
Back in November, we reported on a proposal to take a seven-story residential building at 1143 Fifth Avenue, between East 95th and 96th streets in the Carnegie Hill Historic District, and enlarge it to 13 stories. That really didn’t go over well with neighbors and preservationists, and the Landmarks Preservation Commission didn’t approve it. Last Tuesday, a new proposal, one that would have the existing one-story addition rebuilt as a two-story addition, also did not pass muster with the commissioners.
Last fall, Alfa Development shelled out $69.6 million for four buildings at the corner of East 21st Street and Third Avenue in Gramercy. Now they’ve filed plans for a 20-story residential building at 200 East 21st Street.
Back in the summer of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the 10-story, 103-unit all-affordable residential building at 300 Quarropas Street, located at the corner of South Lexington Avenue in White Plains. Westfair now reports construction has wrapped up on the 121,000-square-foot project, dubbed the Prelude. The White Plains Housing Authority and Jonathan Rose Companies are developing, and Dattner Architects is the design architect. The new building was built on the site of the five-building, 450-unit Brookfield Commons housing complex and also serves as the new home of the White Plains Education and Training Center. The community center measure 13,500 square feet and is open to all residents in Brookfield Commons. Sometime in the future, the city is expected to replace more of the tower-in-the-park buildings with mixed-use, all-affordable residential ones.
