Back in December of 2015, YIMBY brought you a construction update on Toll Brothers City Living’s 12-story, 33-unit unit residential building at 100 Barrow Street, in the West Village. At the time, the project was five stories above street level, but it has since topped out, according to Curbed NY. The new 82,638-square-foot building will eventually host a mix of rental apartments and condominiums, some of which will be duplexes, while seven will rent at below-market rates. The units will come in two- to four-bedroom configurations, and amenities include a fitness center, a kid’s room, a laundry, a pet spa, a recreational lounge, and storage for 18 bikes. The residential portion will fund the Church of St. Luke in the Fields’ school expansion at 657 Greenwich Street. Barry Rice Architects is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
In March, Alchemy Properties and Carlyle Group acquired, for $51 million, the three-story retail building at 2251-2259 Broadway, on the corner of West 81st Street on the Upper West Side, with plans to build a condominium project. The developer have now filed applications for an 18-story, 32-unit mixed-use building, as first reported by The Real Deal. The 209-foot-tall project will measure 123,493 square feet, of which 11,587 square feet will be designated to retail space on the cellar, ground, and second floors. The condos should average a spacious 2,617 square feet apiece, and amenities include a 39-bike storage room, private residential storage space, multiple lounges, and a rooftop terrace. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is serving as the architect of record.
We’ve been telling you about plans for a 49-story, 122-unit residential tower at 131 East 47th Street, between Lexington and Third avenues in Midtown East, since mid-2015. Last month, those plans were officially filed with the Department of Buildings. Now, we have a new look at the project.
In December of 2015, Nathan Berman’s MetroLoft Management purchased the leasehold on the 27-story, 473,000-square-foot office building at 20 Broad Street for $185 million from Vornado Realty Trust, with plans to convert the property into residential units. Now, the developer has filed applications for the project, which call for vertically expanding the building by six stories, or 38,098 square feet, to 33 floors. That would boost the structure’s height from 317 feet to 417 feet. There will be 521 residential units, measuring an average of 795 square feet apiece. The apartments will be rentals, and roughly 200 will be studios, with the rest ranging from one- to three-bedroom configurations.
The 30,102-square foot lot between 41-02 and 41-10 Crescent Street, under the permit address of 41-08 Crescent, has been cleared for construction of an 189-foot-tall, 17-story mixed-use residential and hotel project. It is being developed by Forte Italia LLC, with Bayside-based Park Side Construction Builders serving as the general contractor. Dan Ionescu Architects is in charge of the design. The site is owned by Flushing-based TPEC Management. Completion is anticipated in 2020.
