YIMBY revealed initial renderings of Simon Baron Development’s 269 West 87th Street back in September of 2015, before the latest image for the project was posted back in February. Now, construction is finally making headway at the site, which is about six floors out of the ground, per the latest photos from Tectonic.
With Harlem’s 125th Street seeing a proliferation of new developments in recent years, it should come as no surprise that twenty blocks to the north, the 145th Street Corridor is also growing once again. Building applications have been filed for an eight-story building at 210 West 145th Street, between Frederick Douglass Boulevard and Adam Clayton Powell Jr Boulevard, on a lot that is currently vacant.
A non-descript three-story home is about to meet the wrecking ball for a seven-story replacement at 268 East 7th Street, in the East Village. Building applications show the new structure will have 8,043 square feet of residential space divided between two units, the first spanning from the basement through the second floor, and the second taking up each floor above that. Amador Pons of Grzywinski + Pons Architects is designing, and Wilco Faessen is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the current occupant were approved in late August, so construction should begin relatively soon.
As the blocks surrounding The High Line continue to see plans made for one new development after another, a block-spanning site stretching from 527 West 27th Street to 528 West 28th Street is closing in on completion. Named “Jardim,” the project is being designed by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, and today, YIMBY has a look at the north building, which has now topped-out.
The blocks between Greenwich Village and Union Square have seen several developments rise over the past few years, especially on East 12th Street, between Fifth Avenue and University Place. While NIMBYs are attempting to pass another rezoning to restrict new construction even further, that will not stop progress at 21 East 12th Street, which has now officially topped-out.
