It was back in December that YIMBY told you of Premiere Equities’ plans for a new commercial building at 134 Wooster Street, located between Houston and Price streets in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District. Those plans went before the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday and were approved with very little fuss.
Back in December of 2014, YIMBY reported on the Landmarks Preservation Commission approval of the four-story, eight-unit mixed-use building at 112 Atlantic Avenue, in northern Cobble Hill (within the Cobble Hill Historic District), after initial plans for the site were rejected the month before. Curbed NY now has a new rendering of the project, which is reportedly now under construction and using the address 325 Henry Street. The latest filings describe a 25,244-square-foot structure with 6,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The condominium units will begin on the second floor and should average a very spacious 2,169 square feet apiece. There will also be six bike storage spaces and an eight-car automated parking garage in the cellar. BKSK Architects is designing, and Avery Hall Investments and OTL Enterprises are the developers. Completion is probably expected later this year or in 2017.
When YIMBY last reported on the six-story, five-unit residential project at 52 Wooster Street, located at the corner of Broome Street in the SoHo-Cast Iron Historic District, a teaser site had just been launched. Now, thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that much more has been accomplished.
Back in January, construction was wrapping up on the 12-story, 430-unit residential building at 365 Bond Street, in Gowanus, and now Real Estate Weekly reports the building is nearly complete. Curbed NY also has new renderings of the project, dubbed 365 Bond. The rental apartments will come in a variety of configurations, including studio-, one-bedroom, and townhouse-style layouts, although details for the larger apartments haven’t been made available yet. There will be roughly 40,000 square feet of amenities in the form of a fitness center, a spinning room, a yoga room, multiple lounges, a library, a recreation room, multiple rooftop terraces, a waterfront esplanade, an interior courtyard, and residential and bike storage.There will also be 1,240 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The Lightstone Group is the developer and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects designed the building. MARKZEFF and Weintraub Diaz Landscape Architecture also aided in the design process. Occupancy is expected in April, and construction is currently underway on another 270-unit residential building at 363 Bond Street.
In June of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a 10-story, 57-unit mixed-income rental project at 221 East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, but now Tahoe Development is swapping plans for a seven-story, 50-unit market-rate condominium building. Welcome2TheBronx reports the developer is abandoning plans to include affordable units due to cost concerns. It would also be the first market-rate condo project in the South Bronx since the 2008 financial crisis. The condos will come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom layouts, and the new building will contain ground-floor retail space as previously planned. Hudson Square’s Michael Muroff Architect is the architect of record. The existing two-story warehouse is currently being demolished.
