The Financial District hasn’t fully transformed into a residential neighborhood just yet, but each year it seems to be getting closer. Today, YIMBY has the reveal for another new development coming to the area, at 1 Beekman Street, thanks to eagle-eyed forum poster Rich Brome. The building is being designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and developed by Urban Muse.
Façade installation is underway on the topped-out 19-story, 57-unit mixed-use building under development at 210 East 39th Street, in Murray Hill. Photos showing this come courtesy of prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the structure encompasses 67,573 square feet and rises 185 feet above street level, not including the bulkhead. There will be 7,929 square feet of office space on the ground through third floors for a “philanthropic non-profit institution,” per the Schedule A. The residential units, rentals, should average 893 square feet apiece. Eighteen percent of them (10 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. CBSK Ironstate — comprised of SK Development, CB Developers, and Ironstate Development — is the developer. Rawlings Architects is the behind the architecture. Completion is expected in early 2017.
Over the summer, YIMBY revealed a rendering of the 11-story, 181-affordable-unit mixed-use building planned at 4511 Third Avenue, in the Belmont section of the Bronx. Details for separate 12-story, 133-affordable-unit mixed-use project down the street at 4439 Third Avenue were also included. The developers, SBS Health System, L+M Development Partners, and Hornig Capital Partners, have recently broken ground on the project. The new buildings will measure 294,207 square feet and 145,952 square feet, respectively.
Brooklyn-based Highland Builders has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 674 Maple Street, in northern East Flatbush. The project will measure 8,541 square feet and its residential units should average 790 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. One of the units on the fourth floor will be a duplex and feature space on an upper penthouse level. There will also be space for five bikes in the cellar. Eyal Levitt’s Brooklyn-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 3,600-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in August. The site is eight blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains.
