As the blocks surrounding The High Line continue to see plans made for one new development after another, a block-spanning site stretching from 527 West 27th Street to 528 West 28th Street is closing in on completion. Named “Jardim,” the project is being designed by Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld, and today, YIMBY has a look at the north building, which has now topped-out.
The blocks between Greenwich Village and Union Square have seen several developments rise over the past few years, especially on East 12th Street, between Fifth Avenue and University Place. While NIMBYs are attempting to pass another rezoning to restrict new construction even further, that will not stop progress at 21 East 12th Street, which has now officially topped-out.
The upper blocks of the Upper East Side are only just starting to sprout legitimately Manhattan-scaled skyscrapers, and what will soon become the tallest in the neighborhood, at 180 East 88th Street, is now rapidly rising. The tower is being developed by DDG, which also does their design in-house, though HTO Architect is listed as the architect of record on the permits.
Back in January of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 848 Lorimer Street, in Greenpoint. Now, the first renderings of the project are out, thanks to its architects, Meshberg Group. The site is located between Nassau and Driggs avenues, and the latest building applications also show some revisions compared to the original figures.
229 Hawthorne Street, between Rogers and Nostrand avenues in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens, is set for a new development. Applications filed with the DOB show that the new 16-story structure will have 13,510 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst nine units, translating into an average size of 1,500 square feet. That means condominiums are exceedingly likely, and several of the residences will take up multiple floors. Victor Suben of Royal Engineering, P.C. is the architect of record, and Allen Shahipour, of Amona Realty Group, is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the existing two-story home were filed back in March.
