Back in June, YIMBY last brought you a construction update on the 51-story, 68-unit residential tower at 5 Beekman Street/115 Nassau Street, in the Financial District. In the summer, the building was a few floors from topping out, and now, per Curbed, the building has topped out with exception of the metal ornamental turrets. The Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel-designed tower rises from the 10-story Temple Court building, which is also being converted into a 287-key hotel. GFI Capital and GB Lodging are developing, and completion is expected next year on both components of the project.
Brooklyn-based Amadu Barrie, doing business as B & Barrie LLC, has filed applications for two two-family residential buildings at 1549-1553 East 98th Street, in southern Canarsie. Although the two semi-detached buildings differ by about 400 square feet in footage, the entire development will measure 4,119 square feet, which translates into units averaging roughly 1,030 square feet. Jamaica-based Banji Awosika Architect is the applicant of record, and permits to demolish the existing single-family home were filed last August.
