Back in July of 2014, YIMBY reported on the first filings for a new development coming to 150 East 23rd Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues, in Gramercy. The 19-story project is being designed by ODA Architecture, and we now have the reveal for the building, which is being developed by Kent Chang of LKH 23rd LLC.
Earlier this month, developer Ranger Properties paid $22,000,000 for two buildings at the corner of University Place and East 13th Street, in the heart of the Village near Union Square. Then EV Grieve reported that longtime stalwart University Place Gourmet had shuttered, along with a Chinese laundry around the corner on 13th Street. Now plans have been filed to construct a seven-story apartment building on the site at 34 East 13th Street, and Adjmi Architects is designing.
Property owner Yidel Hirsch has filed applications for a four-story, 20-unit residential building spanning the lots of 193-197 Freeman Street, six blocks north of the Greenpoint Avenue stop on the G train. The building will measure 20,000 square feet, which means units will average 750 square feet each. Julien Flander is the applicant of record, and a single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
Amit Stern, head of LHUM Investments, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building measuring 5,490 square feet at the vacant lot of 71 Cooper Street, in southern Bushwick. Located two blocks from the J and Z train’s Chauncey Street subway stop, units will average just 685 square feet, indicative of rentals. Woody Chen’s InFocus is the applicant of record.
Property owner Joseph Emergi has revived applications, originally filed in 2013, calling for a four-story, three-unit residential building at the vacant lot of 108 Jefferson Avenue, in southwestern Bedford-Stuyvesant, three blocks north of the Nostrand Avenue subway stop. The building will measure 3,830 square feet, which means units will average a condo-sized 1,280 square feet. Gerald Caliendo is designing.
