Brooklyn-based property owner Anselmo Plumitallo has filed applications for a four-story, four-unit residential building at 158 Bay 49th Street, in southern Gravesend. The project will measure 6,100 square feet and its full-floor residential units should average 1,167 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be three off-street parking spaces and the apartment on the fourth floor will feature a roof deck. Nicholas Scire-Chianetta’s Brooklyn-based firm NSC Architecture is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide assemblage consists of a single-story house and vacant lot. The Bay 50th Street stop on the D train is two blocks away.
The former railyard on the Weehawken waterfront has slowly blossomed into a new neighborhood, complete with upscale residential buildings, shops, and restaurants. Now the area, known as Port Imperial, is about to get a new, two-tower condo building called Avora. Industrious photographer Tectonic brings us a look at the construction, which has risen several stories along the Hudson River.
A Queens-based property owner has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building planned at 2230 Adams Place, in the West Bronx’s Belmont section. The project will measure 7,449 square feet and its residential units should average 736 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Bakhtiar Shamloo’s Kew Gardens-based Tabriz Design Group is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property is currently vacant. Metro-North Railroad’s Fordham station is nine blocks northwest.
After a decade of waiting, Jean Nouvel’s 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as the Torre Verre and now known as 53W53, is finally climbing into the New York City skyline. And while the tower only stands about a dozen floors at the moment — up from only a handful when YIMBY last checked in on the site this past June — installation of its iconic cladding and glass has already begun, with the latest update thanks to YIMBY Forumer streetscaper.
Construction is two stories above street level on a 62-story, 426-unit mixed-use tower under development at 242 West 53rd Street, in Midtown. Work is underway on the base of the building, as seen in photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 542,276 square feet and rise 674 feet to its roof, not including the bulkhead and other mechanical equipment. There will be 16,514 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units above should average 1,024 square feet apiece, although it’s unclear whether they will be condominiums or rentals. Algin Management is the developer and CetraRuddy is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in 2018.
