Nearly a year ago, YIMBY revealed renderings of the 17-story, 275-unit condominium building planned at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue, in Prospect Heights, and this past summer we posted interior images of the building’s lobby and common areas. Construction is now well underway, and the structure is currently five stories tall, per the latest from Tectonic. A partnership between Greenland Group and Forest City Ratner is developing the building, which is one of many in their Pacific Park development. COOKFOX is designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
Haibin Chen, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, five-unit residential building at 50-26 101st Street, in Corona, just around the block from the Rego Park-bound Q38 bus stop. The building will total 4,723 square feet, which means units will average 945 square feet apiece. Yuk Lam’s Fresh Meadows-based Lam Engineer is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story house will have to be demolished.
In September of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the Naftali Group’s 18-story, 25-unit building planned at 210 West 77th Street, on the Upper West Side, and this past summer, we brought you a sales update. Now, the structure is roughly two floors from topping out, courtesy of the latest from Tectonic. Thomas Juul-Hansen is designing the project, which will also include an approximately 2,500 square-foot retail component, and completion is currently expected by the end of 2016.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that HFZ Capital is planning to convert the 19- and 13-story buildings at 88 and 90 Lexington Avenue, in NoMad, into condominiums. Now, construction appears to be well underway at both properties, per Tectonic. Both buildings, formerly rental apartments, are being combined to share a lobby and amenity space. The shorter building has also receive a totally new façade, which appears to be mostly complete. Workshop/ADP is designing, and completion is slated for 2016.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY reported on the first new building applications for the development site at 55 West 17th Street. And now, we have the first renderings for the project, which is being designed by Morris Adjmi Architects, and developed by Toll Brothers City Living.
