Yesterday, we checked in on Two Trees’ new tower at 286 Ashland Place, where construction is making rapid headway. Work seems to be moving at a similar place at 333 Schermerhorn Street, just a few blocks away, where Douglas Steiner’s 53-story project dubbed “The Hub” is now roughly two-thirds of the way to its pinnacle, per the latest from Tectonic.
Flatiron District-based Sinha Development has filed applications for a seven-story, 27-unit residential building at 336 East 112th Street, in East Harlem, four blocks from the 110th Street stop on the 6 train. The building will measure a total 21,658 square feet, which means units will average 802 square feet apiece. Tribeca-based TRA Studio Architecture is the architect of record, and the site’s former single-story building was demolished earlier this year.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the two-towered, 15-story residential development at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue, adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, at 113th Street in Morningside Heights. Construction only began late last year on the 428-unit project, but structural construction and façade work are now complete, per Curbed. The buildings are being dubbed Enclave and Cathedral, and also go by the address of 400 West 113th Street. Brodsky Organization is the developer, Handel Architects is the architect, and completion is expected this fall.
M Development is planning to expand the vacant four-story townhouse at 356 East 8th Street, in the East Village, into a six-story, six-unit residential building, according to EV Grieve. The building currently measures 3,112 square feet, but will be enlarged to 7,214 square feet, with units averaging 1,202 square feet apiece. Maqsood Faruqi’s Astoria-based Mar Engineering is the applicant of record, and signage indicates completion is expected next spring.
The City Planning Commission officially kicked off the public review process yesterday for the administration’s three major housing policies to date: mandatory inclusionary zoning, zoning for quality and affordability, and the East New York rezoning.
