Last year, Slate Property Group won a rezoning for a junkyard at 176 Woodward Avenue in Ridgewood, where they planned an 88-unit apartment building with low-cost space for community groups and artists.
This past summer, mysterious soil and bedrock tests were conducted at 200 Amsterdam Avenue, between 69th and 70th Streets on the Upper West Side, and now SJP Properties, partnered with Japan-based Mitsui Fudosan, is in contract to purchase the property for nearly $300 million. The site has nearly 400,000 square feet of air rights, and the developers plan to build a 55-story condominium tower, which could reportedly be one of the tallest in the neighborhood. An existing former religious structure must first be demolished.
Early last month, the residential conversion of the 24-story commercial building at 212 Fifth Avenue, in NoMad, was underway, and now Curbed has uncovered new exterior and interior renderings of the project. Forty-eight condominiums are being carved out of the existing structure, and the units will be large, with some measuring 1,500 square feet, and larger configurations measuring north of 4,000 square feet. Madison Equities and Thor Equities are developing, while Helpern Architects is designing. Sales have already launched, and completion is expected next spring.
