Construction has wrapped up on 959 First Avenue, a 29-story, 113-unit mixed-use tower under development between East 52nd and East 53rd Street, in Midtown East. When YIMBY last checked in on the project in early 2015, façade installation was still underway. The latest photos were posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. Dubbed the Sutton, it measures 194,201 square feet and rises 353 feet above street level. There will be 2,714 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by residential units above, averaging 1,440 square feet apiece. Ninety of the apartments will be condominiums ranging from studios to four-bedrooms, plus a few penthouses, the largest of which has seven bedrooms. The other 23 apartments (20 percent of the total) will be designated as affordable. Toll Brothers City Living is the developer. Incorporated Architecture & Design is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the executive architect. Occupancy can probably be expected soon.
The Harrison, N.Y., Town Board has approved plans to build two five-story residential buildings, with a total of 421 residential units, at 105 Corporate Park Drive. Harrison is in southern Westchester County. The residential units will be rental apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms, of which 10 percent (42 units) will be designated as affordable. The complex will be accommodated by 752 parking spaces and a 5,400-square-foot restaurant. The 10.35-acre property is currently occupied by two three-story, 87,700-square-foot office buildings built during the 1970s. Both will be demolished, although the residential complex will take on a similar footprint. Normandy Real Estate Partners and Toll Brothers are the developers. Sullivan Architecture is behind the design. Construction is expected to start during the first half of 2017.
Not including several stories of steel frame retained from the former parking garage, construction has reached street level on the 19-story, 56-unit mixed-use building under development at 152 East 87th Street, on the Upper East Side. Photos of the progress have been posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest permits indicate the project, categorized as an expansion of the existing garage, will measure 155,764 square feet and rise 210 feet above street level. A 151-car parking garage, a part of which will be operated commercially, will be located on the cellar through third floors, followed by residential units on the fourth through 19th floors. The units will be condominiums and should average 2,411 square feet apiece. Gordon Haskett is the developer and Ismael Leyva Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2017.
A rendering has been revealed of the five-story, 84-unit mixed-use building planned at 73-87 Clay Street, located on the corner of Spring Street in the Lower Broadway section of Newark, New Jersey. Dubbed Spring Street Commons, it will host 7,500 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground floor, in addition to a 21-car parking garage, Jersey Digs reported. It’s not known if the apartments will be condominiums or rentals, but the latter is more likely. The site is currently occupied by two low-rise industrial properties, both of which must first be demolished. Newark-based Paris Real Estate Inc. is the developer. The project was approved by the city’s Central Planning Board back in June of 2015.
Harlem-based Grid Properties is planning a four-story, 230,000-square-foot mixed-use development, dubbed the Boulevard, at 77 West Post Road, located on the southern end of downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The latest plans call for 220,000 square feet of commercial-retail space, 38,000 square feet of which will be dedicated to a fitness center, Westfair reported. Twelve market-rate one-bedroom rental townhouses are also part of the plan, in addition to a 720-car parking garage. The project was presented to the city’s Common Council back in November, although it will eventually have to be approved by the city’s Planning Board. Philadelphia-based BLT Architects is behind the design. The assemblage is comprised of mostly vacant parcels and single-story commercial buildings.
