In April, YIMBY reported on applications for an 11-story, 11-unit residential building at 1402 York Avenue, located between East 74th and 75th streets on the Upper East Side. Now, a rendering has been revealed of the project, via DNAinfo. The units, averaging a spacious 1,926 square feet apiece, surprisingly won’t be condominiums, at least in the beginning. The full-floor rental apartments will be known as “homeownership” units, which means tenants can put their rent payments towards buying their home. Of the 11 residential units, 10 of them will begin by renting at below market-rates. Crest Group is the developer, with Kossar + Garry Architects behind the design.
Property owner Leonor Nevarro, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1636 DeKalb Avenue, in northern Bushwick, located right above the DeKalb Avenue stop on the L train. The structure will measure 7,752 square feet, which means its residential units should average 969 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be two apartments per floor, although the two units on the fourth floor will feature additional space on an upper mezzanine level. Charles Mallea’s Brooklyn-based M Architecture is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide, 4,000-square-foot site is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse.
Joseph Cohen, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 873 Pacific Street, in Prospect Heights, located two blocks from the Clinton-Washington Avenues stop on the C train. The structure will encompass 14,403 square feet, and its residential units should average 1,241 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include private storage space, a two-car parking garage on the ground floor, and a 1,146-square-foot recreational space on the building’s penthouse level. Anthony Morena’s Chelsea-based Mortar ARCH + DEV is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed in March to remove the 50-foot-wide site’s existing three-story townhouse.
Back in September of 2015, new details were revealed of the residential tower planned at 161 Maiden Lane, in the Financial District, notably that the project would rise 60 stories, or 670 feet above street level, up from a previous 51 stories. Now, YIMBY can reveal new and up-close renderings of the glassy tower. Dubbed 1 Seaport, the project will have 80 condominium residences ranging from one- to four-bedroom configurations, averaging 1,726 square feet apiece. The 192,473-square-foot tower will be topped by two duplex penthouses. Amenities, located across three floors, will include a fitness center with yoga and training rooms, an infinity pool and spa featuring a “rain shower,” a sauna, and a “relaxation lounge.”
AvalonBay Communities and the New York City Department of Education’s Educational Construction Fund (ECF) are partnering to develop a roughly 1,100-unit mixed-use complex at 321 East 96th Street, on the Upper East Side. The complex will include rental apartments, two public schools with recreational spaces, and 20,000 square feet of retail space, according to The Real Deal. The development would take up the entire block, which is bound by East 96th and 97th streets and First and Second avenues.
