Blame crappy zoning resolutions/codes in the city.

Here is the holy bible of NYC Zoning Codes: http://www1.nyc.gov/assets/planning/...s.pdf?r=072916

I'd read it, and recite it, in public while on a carpet, on the 7 train, at 5 am. All 3977 pages of it.

But in all seriousness, a lot of info can be learned and referenced in this document.

Lalezarian Plans Cantilevering Residential Tower in West Soho

Lalezarian Plans Cantilevering Residential Tower in West Soho
June 6

Quote:
Long Island-based Lalezarian Properties is moving ahead with plans to build a 37-unit residential building at 102 Charlton Street in Hudson Square. A recently-approved zoning application filed with the city shows the 15-story tower will dramatically cantilever over its neighboring tenement at 100 Charlton.

Smile NEW YORK | 2461 Broadway | FT | 15 FLOORS

Project: 2461 Broadway



Quote:
Brooklyn-based Hampshire Properties has filed applications for a 15-story, 33-unit mixed-use building at 2461 Broadway, located on the corner of West 91st Street on the Upper West Side. The project would measure 76,999 square feet and rise 197 feet to its rooftop.

The new building will feature 5,662 square feet of retail space across the ground and second floors, followed by 33 residential units on the third through 15th floors. The apartments should average 1,780 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums.

ODA New York is the architect of record. The 5,369-square-foot assemblage consists of a five-story mixed-use building at 2461 Broadway and a two-story commercial structure at 2463 Broadway. Demolition permits have not been filed.

I love before and after comparisons, and here is a recent one by "The New Yorker" showing 80 years worth of history side by side. How things have changed.

Sergey Rybak picked up a troubled Brighton Beach development site once owned by Chaim Miller and plans to build a 22-story apartment building.

The planned tower will include 114 apartments, 32,000 square feet of community space and 200 parking spots.

Smile NEW YORK | 202-208 Tillary Street + 67-73 Prince Street | 23 + 21 FLOORS

Project: 202-208 Tillary Street + 67-73 Prince Street



Quote:
Downtown Brooklyn’s development boom only seems to be accelerating, with every recent completion seemingly matched by another tower breaking ground. Now, YIMBY has the first word as well as the reveal for a major project planned at 202-208 Tillary Street. The applicants have applied for a rezoning of the site for inclusion within the official Special Downtown Brooklyn District, and the resulting plans are set to allow two connected towers of 23 and 21 floors.

The gross floor area of the residential component would measure 234,316 square feet, with 183 units included between the two towers, 79 of which would be designated as affordable. Another 13,723 square feet would be set aside for ground-floor retail, and there would be 44 parking spaces built for the project as well.

Aufgang Architects is behind the design, which may still see some changes. The proposed version of the development is supposed to be “lower impact” on air quality than a taller possibility, which would replace the 23 and 21-story towers with twin buildings rising 42 floors apiece. However, the renderings and submitted zoning materials seem to indicate that the developers are heavily favoring the shorter plan.

Aesthetically, the development promises to improve yet another forlorn block of Downtown Brooklyn. The towers will consume an old storage facility, which is currently whitewashed and nondescript. The designs presented in the renderings aren’t exactly starchitecture material, but for a superblock on the edge of Downtown Brooklyn, the buildings could be worse.

It's interested how much driving etiquette has changed since then. We used to drive like how they do in much of the 3rd world today.

What's going on with this construction at the World Trade Center site?
For months, nothing at all is going on.

Smile NEW YORK | 38-65 11th Street | FT | 14 FLOORS

Project: 38-65 11th Street



Quote:
The site totals 11,425 square feet, and the building will measure 57,125 square feet, to be divided between 168 hotel rooms, for an average size of about 340 square feet. There will also be 16 parking spaces.

Tan Architect PC filed for the permits with the Department of Buildings, which originally called for a 10-story structure with 170 rooms, that would rise 108 feet in all. Evidently, the project’s height has seen a substantial bump, as it is now set to rise 14 floors in all, while the room count has stayed the same.

Design-wise, the building is nothing spectacular, but for new hotels in New York City, that is more than sufficient. The rendering depicts windows without any PTACs, which automatically makes the project more attractive than the bulk of similar development in both Queens and Manhattan. Besides that, a grey facade will complement the glassy exterior, and the building will make for innocuous filler.

Completion is anticipated for January of 2020, and the project is currently seeking EB-5 financing. Efunding is listed as the developer on the permits, and Eastone Capital appears to be the actual developer as mentioned in the financing collateral.

Smile NEW YORK | 110 East 16th Street | 250 FT | 21 FLOORS

Project: 110 East 16th Street



Quote:
The site is imminently going to begin its ULURP approval process, applying for a 74-711 special permit. When complete, the building will span approximately 100,000 square feet, with 3,000 square feet used for retail and community facility space, and the remainder to be split between 50 condominiums.

With units averaging almost 2,000 square feet apiece, the design corresponds to the intended price point, and promises another dramatic improvement to Union Square. The building will be topped in a cylindrical crown that’s nearly as tall as the Zeckendorf Towers’ 292-foot pinnacle, one block to the south.

Despite the tower’s relative lack of height by Manhattan standards, the building will be relatively prominent, thanks to Union Square’s low to mid-rise surrounds. Floors appear to be 11 or 12 feet apiece, which will also translate into generous ceiling heights for the units within.

110 East 16th looks like great infill.

I would LOVE to live in that area, especially in new construction. If I had $10 million or so to spend on a Manhattan apartment, I'd probably buy there.

^ Added bonus, it's replacing a parking garage. Now if we could only get someone to tear down the TGI Friday's on that corner...
