In the first half of 2014, YIMBY reported on building applications for a nearly 600-foot-tall luxury residential tower at 45 Park Place, in Tribeca, and later that year, we revealed preliminary renderings of the project. Now, Bloomberg Business has the latest news on the tower, as well as an update on the design. The building will have 43 actual stories and will top out 667 feet above street level, up from the 39-story and 597-foot figures reported earlier. The latest filings call for 50 condominiums, and at least 15 will reportedly be full-floor units measuring 3,200 to 3,700 square feet. The 134,304 square-foot building will also incorporate 1,089 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Staten Island-based Blue Star Group has filed applications for three detached multi-family residential buildings at 133-141 Kruser Street, in Staten Island’s south shore neighborhood of New Dorp. Located just five blocks from the Grant City SIRR station, each three-story building will house two units for a total of six apartments. The development will total 8,808 square feet, which means units will average a spacious 1,468 square feet apiece. Richard Moss’s Moss & Sayad Architects is the applicant of record, and an existing single-story house must first be demolished.
In the middle of 2014, the six-story, 39-unit residential project began construction at 11-35 45th Avenue, in Long Island City, and today, the building is nearly finished, according to The Court Square Blog. The building has been topped-out for a while, but now the façade is mostly up, with work still ongoing on the roof and balconies. Units will average 769 square feet apiece, and completion is tentatively scheduled for next spring. George Xu is representing an anonymous developer, and Flushing-based Raymond Chan is the architect.
Last week, YIMBY brought you the first look at B+B Capital’s South Williamsburg condos on South 3rd Street. Now we have a rendering for another B+B development under construction a bit further south, at 176-178 Division Avenue.
Last year, Brownstoner spotted a space-age construction rendering for a six-story residential building at 785 Dekalb Avenue between Tompkins and Throop Avenues in Bed-Stuy. While that design—which featured a slanted porthole—didn’t make the cut, construction is finally nearing the finish line.
