The New York City Department of Housing Development and Preservation (HPD) has revealed two large-scale mixed-use properties in East Harlem that will create a new Afro-Latin Music and Arts (ALMA) Center and 600 affordable housing units. The ALMA Center will be operated by the Afro Latin Jazz Alliance and the housing units will serve low-income families and the formerly homeless.
The affordable housing lottery has launched for 310 Graham Avenue, a seven-story residential building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by architect Diego Aguilera and developed by South Williamsburg-based Cheskie Weiss, the structure yields 16,350 square feet and 24 residences. Available on NYC Housing Connect are eight units for residents at 130 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $68,572 to $192,400.
Construction is now complete on The Symon, a 13-story condominium building at 76 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn Heights. Designed by Colberg Architecture and developed by Lonicera Partners, Orange Management, and The Davis Companies, the property features 59 units with interiors by Studio DB, which also led the design of the façade. The project is located between Boerum Place and Court Street, along the border with Boerum Hill.
Renderings from Steven Harris Architects reveal a ground-up façade and window replacement project at 19 East 74th Street on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The property’s location in the Upper East Side Historic District will require the project team to obtain a Certificate of Appropriateness from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC).
Construction has topped out on the ten-story addition atop 685 Fifth Avenue, a 100,000-square-foot office-to-condominium conversion in Midtown, Manhattan. Designed by Marin Architects and developed SHVO in partnership with Deutsche Finance, the $135 million project will yield 69 condominium units designed by March and White Design and managed by Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group, as well as retail space with Fifth Avenue frontage marketed by Brookfield Properties. Coach, Stuart Weitzman, and TAG Heuer currently operate their stores on the lower floors of the edifice while work progresses above.
