A townhouse that dates back to the 19th century will be getting a decidedly modern rear, thanks to Tuesday’s approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The five-story home at 39 East 67th Street, in the East Side Historic District, will be getting an entirely new rear facade, a reconfigured roof, and restorative work on the front facade.
Nine stories of condos may replace a little brick walkup on the corner of Second Avenue and East 45th Street. Architect Karl Fischer filed applications earlier today for a 100-foot-tall building at 843 Second Avenue.
Gaia Real Estate is planning to convert the seven-story former St. Vincent’s hospital building at 416 West 52nd Street, in Hell’s Kitchen, into 155 condominiums. The roughly 156,000 square-foot building will boast relatively affordable units averaging about 1,000 square feet and starting at $1 million. The vacant building was acquired from the Chetrit Group back in August for $156.5 million. Earlier this year, the Chetrit Group converted the building into 156 rental apartments. [The Real Deal]
Phil Farinacci has filed applications for two two-family residential buildings at 45-47 Union Avenue, in Mariners Harbor, on Staten Island’s northern shore. Each building will stand two stories and contain two full-floor units measuring an average 1,216 square feet. Jorge Canepa’s Staten Island-based Archidesign Architectural Studio is the applicant of record, and the HPD demolished the property’s former two-story house in 2008.
Late last year, YIMBY posted a video featuring renderings of plans for a new 63-story residential tower at 118 Fulton Street. The design featured in the film was originally created for the Lightstone Group, which sold off 112-118 Fulton Street to Carmel Partners last September for $171 million. But while the site’s developer has changed, its appearance has seemingly stayed the same, and a new on-site rendering confirms that a design similar to the one previously posted will be built.
