Bronx Pro Group and Curtis + Ginsberg Architects have partnered on an eight-story, mixed-use development at 4697 Third Avenue in Fordham, The Bronx. The affordable housing development, which will contain both residential and retail components, will join a number of other projects the two firms have collaborated on in underrepresented neighborhoods of the borough in 2019.
Residential development firm Bronx Pro Group, which specializes in the construction of affordable housing properties, has released preliminary renderings of a new, 16-story mixed-use building in Mount Hope, The Bronx. The proposed building is located at 1769 Jerome Avenue and could yield 175 rental units, along with 7,667 square feet for a retail tenant and community facilities. The project scope also includes the design of pedestrian areas and improved landscaping.
Central Park Tower, aka 217 West 57th Street, has surpassed the 1,450-foot-tall Willis Tower (née Sears Tower) to claim the title of highest roof in the Western Hemisphere. The Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill-designed supertall is being developed by Extell and will soon top-out at 1,550 feet tall over Billionaires’ Row.
YIMBY last reported on 542 West 22nd Street back in 2015, when permits were filed for a new five-story, 31,158-square-foot art gallery. Now, the reinforced concrete superstructure is topped-out, and will soon be home to Zurich-based Hauser & Wirth, which is also the developer of the project. The building, designed by Annabelle Selldorf, is located between Tenth Avenue and Eleventh Avenue in West Chelsea, and stands 95 feet tall.
The curved dome atop 44 Union Square, the former headquarters of Tammany Hall, is structurally completed and the geometric glass panels that enclose the lattice frame are beginning to be installed. The renovation is designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Edifice Real Estate Partners. CNY Group is in charge of construction on the historic, 90-year-old landmarked structure, which is being expanded to 70,348 square feet. Two new floors will be housed beneath the dome and receive abundant natural daylight. Reading International (RDI), who purchased the building eighteen years ago, helped to advance the project thanks a $57.5 million construction loan they secured from Bank of Ozarks and Fisher Brothers.
