A former animal hospital in NoHo is set to see a commercial revitalization. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a revised renovation plan for the building at 348 Lafayette Street, which occupies 348-354 Lafayette Street and is also known as 11-13 Bond Street. The building dates back to 1913 and is now in the NoHo Historic District.
Last week, YIMBY brought you a sneak peak of the glassy façade that will eventually be installed on Extell Development’s 95-story, 1,550-foot-tall condominium tower (officially Central Park Tower), currently under construction at 217 West 57th Street in Midtown. The supertall will boast Nordstrom’s first Manhattan flagship store, and now the Seattle Times has revealed official renderings of the building’s retail podium. The Seattle-based department store will span 363,000 square feet across eight stories (three below grade) in the development.
Property owner Tahira Chaudhry has filed applications for a five-story, six-unit mixed-use building at 1138 Manhattan Avenue, in northern Greenpoint, located at the corner of Box Street. It will encompass 9,648 square feet and will feature 1,180 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Residential units will begin on the second floor and should average 995 square feet apiece. There will be two units per floor on floors two and three, another unit on part of the fourth floor, and a duplex units on the rest of the fourth floor and the entire fifth floor. Fresh Meadows-based Jamil Coppin is the architect of record. An existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished.

Back in November, Chinese developer Vanke acquired the 11-story, 44-unit condominium project at 275 Fourth Avenue (a.k.a 251 First Street), in Park Slope, located four blocks south of the Union Street stop on the R train. Now the building is taking shape, as seen in an update via Curbed NY. The 82,045-square-foot project will include 4,273 and 335 square feet of retail and medical space, respectively, on the ground floor. On the floors above, residential units will come in two-, three-, and four-bedroom residential units, averaging 1,368 square feet apiece. Amenities will include a roof deck, an entertainment space, children’s playroom, and a gym. ODA New York is behind the design and completion is expected later this year.
