Alexander Grinberg, operating as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for six single-family, semi-detached townhouses spanning 150-160 Lily Pond Avenue, in Arrochar, located two blocks south of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. The entire development will measure 6,528 square feet in residential space, and each home will stand three stories and measure 1,088 square feet. Staten Island-based Calvanico Associates is the architect of record, and permits were filed in July to demolish an existing single-story nursing home.
Two years ago, Stillman Development International began converting the six-story former factory building at 36 Bleecker Street, in NoHo, into a residential property fit with 20 condominium units, and now the completed building has been unveiled, per Curbed. The building measures 60,418 square feet in residential space, and condo units range from one- to four-bedroom configurations. All but one unit is in contract. Morris Adjmi served as the architect of record.
Last summer, construction kicked off at 64 East 1st Street, in the East Village, where MGM Property Group and Ekstein Development are building a six-story, six-unit residential building, and now steel-frame construction is up to the third floor, according to EV Grieve. The full-floor condominiums, which average 2,185 square feet, will have two-bedroom configurations and outdoor terraces. GF55 Partners is designing, and completion is expected in 2016.
Back in early 2014, YIMBY featured a first look at speculative plans for the redevelopment of the American Bible Society. That concept fell through, but we followed up with a post that included a prospective design by architects Goldstein Hill & West. Now, Skidmore Owings & Merrill has been tapped to design the project, and thanks to a tipster’s submission of diagrams for the project, we were able to create renderings that are a close approximation of what the building will ultimately look like.
Jamaica Estates has been largely untouched by the wave of development sweeping through the rest of Jamaica, but new buildings are rising on a small swath at the neighborhood’s southern edge. A tipster sent along these photos of a development rising at 177-16 Wexford Terrace, situated just north of Hillside Avenue between Edgerton Boulevard and Dalny Road. New building permits were approved a year ago, but construction has only reached the seventh story so far.
