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.

11-Story, 44-Unit Mixed-Use Condo Building Rises At 251 First Street, Park Slope

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.

13-Story, Five-Unit Mixed-Use Building Tops Out At 347 Bowery, East Village

YIMBY first reported in early 2014 on filings for Urban Muse’s planned 13-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 347 Bowery, on the corner of East 3rd Street in the East Village. When we last checked in in November, the structure was eight stories above street level, and it has since topped out, EV Grieve reports. The building will eventually contain five three-bedroom condo units ranging between 2,100 and 4,000 square feet each. Within the two-story retail podium, there will be two 2,000 square-foot retail units and one 6,800 square-foot retail unit. Annabelle Selldorf is behind the project’s design, and completion can be expected sometime later this year.

HFZ’s 64-Story Moshe Safdie Tower Hinges On Restoration Of Gilsey House

Back in October, the Landmarks Preservation Commission heard a proposal that would remake a good chunk of West 29th Street between Broadway and Fifth Avenue. It would include restoring two landmarks and construction of a 64-story mixed-use tower. The hearing in October was paused because of the late hour and lack of quorum, and when it resumed on Tuesday, it became clear that one aspect of it was the big stumbling block.
