As reported by YIMBY last year, the seven-story structure will contain ten condominiums spanning approximately 10,500 square feet, with 390 square feet of ground-floor retail.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 2422 Lyvere Street in Westchester Square, The Bronx.

Maheen Farrukh of Galaxy City Apartments is listed as the owner behind the applications.

Following almost a decade of development, Jeff Greene’s residential conversion of 100 Vandam Street in Hudson Square, Manhattan has officially topped out. Designed by COOKFOX Architects, the 330-foot building artfully repurposes a 131-year-old coal power plant as a partial podium for 19 stories of new construction above.
Jeanne Gang’s 620-foot-tall, 57-story skyscraper at 11 Hoyt Street in Downtown Brooklyn is almost fully wrapped in its signature wavy curtain wall. The bright precast façade and large, square glass windows have only two floors remaining before the dynamic, rippling appearance of the cladding is fully realized. Tishman Speyer is the developer and Hill West is the architect of record for the Studio Gang-designed residential project. Edmund Hollander of Hollander Design is in charge of the landscaping for the outdoor green space above the motor courtyard and podium section.
