Four-Story, 10-Unit Residential Project Planned at 1072 University Avenue, Highbridge

Property owner Shahin Badaly, doing business as an anonymous Mount Vernon, N.Y.-based LLC, has filed application for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 1072 University Avenue, in Highbridge. The structure will measure 6,452 square feet, which means its residential units should average 645 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two to three per floor. Mount Vernon-based SJBP Consulting Engineers is the applicant of record. The 27-foot-wide, 2,673-square-foot property is currently vacant. The site is located eight blocks from the 167th Street on the 4 train.

Since last fall, when façade work was wrapping up, construction on the 11-story, 106-unit residential building at 456 Washington Street, located on the corner of Watts Street in TriBeCa, has finished. The new building encompasses 186,054 square feet and is home to 106 luxury rental apartments, 22 of which will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. The apartments, averaging 1,330 square feet apiece, range from studios to five-bedrooms.

Extell Expands Mixed-Use Development Assemblage at 350 East 86th Street, Upper East Side

After entering into contract nearly a year ago, Extell Development has closed on the purchase of the single-story, 128,250-square-foot Gristedes grocery store at 350 East 86th Street, on the Upper East Side, for $93 million. The acquisition was funded with a $55 million mortgage, Commercial Observer reported. The developer also owns the neighboring four- and five-story tenement buildings at 1645-1651 First Avenue. Combined with the new acquisition, the 20,650-square-foot assemblage now supports 206,500 square feet of new mixed-use development up to 210 feet above street level. The developer is apparently planning a 20-story, 200-plus-unit condominium project at the site, although there aren’t many details on it. Demolition permits haven’t been filed for any of the Extell-owned properties, but Gristedes is expected to vacate the premises later this year.

Permits Filed: 989 Willoughby Avenue, Bushwick

Willoughby Avenue between Central and Evergreen avenues in Bushwick used to be a reminder of the city’s worst years, with an odd mix of decrepit wood frame houses, vacant lots, and garages. But several new buildings have transformed the block in the last decade, and now another project is set to join the mix.
