Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the two-towered, 15-story residential development at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, at 113th Street in Morningside Heights. Construction only began late last year on the 428-unit project, but structural construction and façade work are now complete, per Curbed. The buildings are being dubbed Enclave and Cathedral, and also go by the address of 400 West 113th Street. Brodsky Organization is the developer, Handel Architects is the architect, and completion is expected this fall.
M Development is planning to expand the vacant four-story townhouse at 356 East 8th Street, in the East Village, into a six-story, six-unit residential building, according to EV Grieve. The building currently measures 3,112 square feet, but will be enlarged to 7,214 square feet, with units averaging 1,202 square feet apiece. Maqsood Faruqi’s Astoria-based Mar Engineering is the applicant of record, and signage indicates completion is expected next spring.
The City Planning Commission officially kicked off the public review process yesterday for the administration’s three major housing policies to date: mandatory inclusionary zoning, zoning for quality and affordability, and the East New York rezoning.
Over the course of the project’s two-year evolution, YIMBY has chronicled the construction of 505 West 19th Street, in West Chelsea, which now hosts two conjoined buildings. The eastern component will contain 25 condos and two penthouses, while the western structure will have eight full-floor-plus units, as well as a duplex penthouse, which YIMBY can now reveal.
Property owner Yair Bohadana, based in Morrisania, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 2110 Hughes Avenue in Belmont, a few blocks away from the Bronx Zoo. The building will measure 5,520 square feet in total, and units will average a rental-sized 690 square feet each. The two fourth-floor units will also share an upper-level mezzanine, bringing the building’s roof to 51 feet. Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record, and the site’s four-story predecessor was demolished by the HPD in 2001.
