The New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development has announced the construction of two affordable housing projects in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan. Together, the 100% affordable housing developments will create more than 250 homes for low-income families and the formerly homeless.
A new mixed-use residential skyscraper is scheduled to rise at 260-270 West 126th Street in Central Harlem. Renderings have recently been released for the upcoming 385,000 square foot structure. Along with apartments, there will also be a church on the ground floor and a three-story theater. The Thomas Memorial Wesleyan Methodist Church partially occupies the property. The location of the proposed 42-story tower sits to the west of the famous Apollo Theater and has been used as a parking lot for a number of years. The dimensions of the site are about 125 feet long and 10 feet deep.
The Lively recently topped-out at 321 Warren Street in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District. Today, YIMBY has another update on the 18-story mixed-use structure. Due to its quick construction schedule, the development is expected to debut this summer with move-ins around July. It is designed by Fogarty Finger Architecture and developed by LMC. There will be 180 apartments, 1,343 square feet of ground-floor retail, and a 14,200-square-foot black-box theater with dedicated space for local artists.
Construction will soon kick-off at 300 West 30th Street following approvals from the Department of Buildings. Designed by Studio C Architects, a new collection of renderings offer a first look at the property.
Yet another residential skyscraper is in the works at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, and today YIMBY has an update on site progress. The main elevation of the existing three-story, low-rise building is now sitting behind construction netting and scaffolding, and it will soon be demolished to make way for the planned 40-story mixed-use replacement. Hill West Architects is the designer of the project, while David Schwarz of Slate Property Group will develop the structure. Office and retail space is reportedly going to be in the lower section of the 550-foot tall development.
