Smile NEW YORK | MID/LOW RISES | General Developments Updates/Compilation

New York City's Mid Rise/Low Rise Updates/Compilation



New York City has been experiencing the greatest boom since the early 20th century. We are experiencing a whole new era of high rise, mid rise, and low rise construction. In order to not crowd the High Rise Development thread with smaller projects, NYC needs to have a general developments thread/compilation where we can neatly place all of the smaller projects. Similar to the Chicago and Atlanta general developments, this thread should serve to document projects that are generally below 12 stories which includes mid/low rises and other developments such as parks,piers, street designs,etc. (General Developments) .

Highrise Thread for structures 12 floors > / 120 FT > can be found here: NEW YORK CITY | Highrise Compilation and Directory 2015 Version

Format: I'm thinking every project should have the name on top, bold, and a rendering that is reasonable size. I know sometimes its difficult to find smaller ones, but something around 1024x768 or 800x600 is appropriate. For sake of neatness. Along with a brief description of the height, floors, features, etc. And in quotes if its from a source. Usually information from other sources without quotes makes it look very sloppy and hard to navigate. Along with proper citing of course.

* Thanks to Photolith for the find

Comments: Try to keep the discussion relevant. Opinions are welcome, but be a little mature with them. No flaming/trolling please.

Residences will be located above the development’s 30,000 square feet of retail space, and the project will also include 600 parking spaces, which is a necessity given URL Staten Island’s relatively suburban location.

Update:

Lower East Side development will offer smaller units

Quote:
A 37-unit residential development is coming to 50 Clinton Street. DHA Capital, developing a property on the Lower East Side, will be offering mostly one- and two- bedroom units in its new building, targeting first-time buyers and young professionals, according to the New York Daily News. DHA bought 50 Clinton Street from Icon Realty Management for $28 million. DHA’s project at 50 Clinton Street, the project for which restaurant wd~50 will have to relocate, will have bedroom apartments in the $1 million price range, far below Manhattan’s average sales price of $3.25 million for a unit in a new development. On a per square footage basis, however, these units are about as expensive as larger units. The property will also include a three-bedroom penthouse for $3 million. “The project’s defining elements are its smaller-sized units and moderate price points, all without compromising on design or quality,” said Dan Hollander, managing principal of DHA Capital, in a statement.

“We expect demand to be very strong for this product, which is basically absent from the current marketplace,” Josh Schuster, Principal of DHA Capital said.

So well done and well thought out, just trying to imagine what kind of design could replace the old standard generic rite Aid pharmacy and fit in to blend in with the overall composition of the street.

Condo Conversion:

CAST IRON HOUSE



Quote:
The condo conversion of the cast iron building at Broadway and Franklin Street is exactly the type of project preservationists love. Developer Knightsbridge Properties painstakingly restored some 4,000 ornamental pieces on the facade, and they brought in architect Shigeru Ban to create a modern addition that pleased the Landmarks Preservation Commission. Inside, there are 11 now-duplex condos plus two penthouse units, ranging from a 2,850-square-foot 3BR to a 4,890-square-foot 5BR.
Condo Conversion: 72 POPLAR STREET



Quote:
A former police station in Brooklyn Heights has been converted into 14 condos by the Daten Group and Freyer Architects. Three new stories were built atop the 100-year-old structure, and sales could start any day now.
Condo Conversion: 7 HARRISON



Quote:
There will be 10 half-floor units, one townhouse with a private backyard, and one duplex penthouse with a large terrace. The penthouse is expected to ask more than $25 million.
281 UNION



Quote:
A 33-unit rental building designed by the Brooklyn-based firm MDIM is nearing completion in Williamsburg. The units will be one- and two-bedrooms, some of which will have private outdoor space. Rents will range from $2,400 to $4,800.
345 CARROLL STREET

Quote:
Reps from Sterling Equities tell us the four-story development planned for the Regency Carts site in Gowanus will become condos. And the new building will have 35 apartments, instead of the 32 we reported when the developers filed plans in October. Scaffolding was erected last week, as GYFO noted, and it looks like work could begin soon.
====================================
http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2013...te-goes-condo/
====================================

THE STACK



Quote:
Made of 56 prefabricated containers shipped in from Pennsylvania, The Stack in Inwood is one of the pioneers in modular construction in the city. We've tracked the project from renderings to a time-lapse video of of the capsules getting, well, stacked. And now, after a few months of delay, its 28 units will hit the rental market this spring.

199 MOTT STREET



Quote:
Nolita's 199 Mott is green developer Alfa’s fourth LEED Gold-striving project. Located between Spring and Delancey, the ground-up eight-story structure has a handsome red brick, steel and limestone facade designed by Kutnicki Bernstein Architects. It will house 11 two- and three-bedroom residences, ranging from 1,2225 to over 3,000 square feet.
OOSTEN



Quote:
A whole bunch of renders and details were recently unveiled as Xinyuan very publicly marketed the project to Chinese buyers. Here's what's included in the development: 216 condos, ranging from one to six bedrooms. Of those, 15 are private townhomes, each with its own garage. There are also four penthouses that also come with private garages, accessible via elevator. (The townhouses and penthouses all have jacuzzis, btw.) Residents have access to amenities including an indoor lap pool, gym, steam and sauna rooms, children's playroom, and a rooftop with a reflection pool. A 10,000-square-foot space intended for a nonprofit art gallery is on site. While WASA is the architect of record, the interiors should be special. The project's name—Oosten—is Dutch, and that's because the interior designer for the whole place is Piet Boon, who is making his NYC debut with luxe Park Avenue South project Huys. Construction is finally underway, sales are scheduled to launch in early May and occupancy is expected in the last quarter of 2015.
123 ON THE PARK



Quote:
The long-stalled conversion of the Caledonian Hospital beside Prospect Park is finally becoming a reality. The Chetrit Group-developed, Karl Fischer-designed condo will come to market this spring with 120 rental apartments. It will have studios, one-, two- and three-bedrooms, plus 128 attending parking spaces in the cellar level, and 67 bike parking spaces.

THE BERGEN



Quote:
Once upon a time, notorious architect Karl Fischer had plans for 316 Bergen Street in Boerum Hill, but thankfully those plans died. The building is now designed by ODA Architecture, and developers the Naftali Group and AEW Capital Management are planning an 85-unit rental with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom units. Amenities include an attended lobby, fitness center, two lounges, a landscaped roof deck, an interior courtyard, and "unlimited access to noted concierge, Abigail Michaels."
540WEST



Quote:
The 114 condos across sister buildings at 540 West 49th Street are rolling out in two waves. One batch launched sales in late October, and there are currently 35 condos in contract and 13 available listings. Meanwhile, the north tower (note the big red arrows indicating which one it is) will launch sales of its 60 apartments this month. Just to give a sense of the pricing, the apartments on the market right now for the south tower range from a studio for $705,000 to a 2BR/2BA penthouse for $2.7M.

Long-Stalled Pier 26 Maritime Education Center Gets $10M to Move Forward




Quote:
The city has secured $10 million in state funds from a trio of agencies to build a stalled maritime education and research center on the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan.
The state-of-the-art so-called “estuarium” will sit on Pier 26, just south of the Holland Tunnel in Tribeca, between Hubert and North Moore streets.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will reportedly contribute $5 million and the state’s Department of Environmental Conservation will shell out an additional $4.75 million to build the 10,000- to 12,000-square-foot facility. Additionally, the Department of State has agreed to match $335,000 in design and planning funds, the article said.
The state will soon issue a request for expressions of interest for a group to build and run the center. The project has been in the works since 2007.
The Hudson River Park Trust is also interested in the pier and is planning a 200-seat restaurant, slated to open in 2015, that will join the newly constructed boathouse, according to DNAinfo.

New Stapleton Waterfront

Renderings: (This also includes the URL Staten Island)





Quote:
Overview

The Homeport, a 35-acre decommissioned U.S. Naval Base in Staten Island, is poised to become a new, mixed-use residential community in accordance with the community-driven New Stapleton Waterfront Development Plan.

The first phase of the development will activate and reconnect an underutilized waterfront through new housing opportunities, retail and significant improvements in public infrastructure.

The Ironstate Development Company will transform 7-acres into a sustainable development of rental housing units and retail stores. In addition, the City will invest $32 million for road improvements and a new waterfront esplanade for the historic Stapleton community and all of Staten Island. Future phases of development will include additional public open space.

Rockaway Boardwalk Reconstruction Project







Quote:
Rockaway Beach Overview

After Hurricane Sandy, more than $140 million was invested to repair and restore Rockaway Beach. As part of this work, led by the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation and the NYC Department of Design and Construction, intact sections of boardwalk were repaired, damaged beach buildings were renovated with new boardwalk islands constructed around them, public restrooms and lifeguard stations were installed to replace destroyed facilities, and interim shoreline protection and anti-erosion measures were created. Thanks to this work, more than three million people visited Rockaway Beach last summer.

The next phase of work to restore Rockaway Beach is to design and build more resilient boardwalks, dunes, and other protective structures and create an integrated conceptual plan for restoring, relocating, or enhancing recreational facilities, concession opportunities, and pedestrian/bicycle access.

Smile NEW YORK | 62-96 Woodhaven Blvd | 73 FT | 7 FLOORS



Former Rego Park eatery faces demolition
Home of the former Joe Abbracciamento Restaurant to become apartments

April 19, 2014 09:00AM


62-96 Woodhaven Blvd. in Queens

Quote:
Shortly after a famous Rego Park eatery shuttered its doors, a developer has made plans to tear down part of the building it occupied.

The Astoria-based Criterion Group plans to tear down the northern half of 62-96 Woodhaven Blvd., home of the recently closed Joe Abbracciamento Restaurant, to build apartments.

The destruction of part of the building would make way for a proposed seven-story, 114-unit apartment building, according to documents filed with and approved by the Department of Buildings.

Eric Benaim, CEO of Modern Spaces NYC, the firm in charge of marketing for the planned apartment building, said that they were “still in the early stages” on the planned demolition and constuction.

John Abbracciamento, the owner of both the closed restaurant and building it partially occupied, said he was unsure of what would become of the site.

Some of the shop owners who maintain businesses in the building say they had no knowledge of the structure’s potential demolition.

Ilana Shilim and her daughter, Kathy, owners of a dog grooming business at nearby 62-78 Woodhaven Blvd., said they will be moving their business a few blocks down the street to 61-29 Woodhaven Blvd. because of the uncertainty surrounding the building’s future.

Cuomo awards $4 million for clean-energy transportation projects

Quote:
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has awarded $4.3 million for 17 projects, including five in New York City, aimed at creating more energy-efficient and cleaner transportation systems.
Technologies that qualified for funding included electrified transport, heavy-duty/commercial vehicles, advanced vehicle components, and efforts to reduce traffic congestion, improve infrastructure or reduce energy use in transportation by road, rail, water or air.
Cuomo said these projects are in line with his goal to increase support for new and innovative clean energy technologies that help reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

In New York City, the projects include:

LED lighting for New York City’s subway($242,000) – Westbury-based Clear-Vu Lighting will expand its LED lighting products to include a new device to be used in the New York City subway system. Clear-Vu's product would replace a compact fluorescent lighting system used to light tunnels with a LED-based system that would significantly reduce installation and energy costs.
Improving traffic management ($75,000)– Bandwagon of Brooklyn will work with researchers at Columbia University, New York University and several city agencies to develop an open database management system that would pool sources of electronic information on traffic flow in order to promote traffic data accessibility, improve traffic management, increase traffic efficiency and reduce fuel use due to traffic delays.

Wireless electric vehicle charging ($240,000)– New York-based HEVO Power is working with NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, Pepsi-Co/Frito-Lay of Purchase, and several other partners, to develop wireless electric vehicle charging technology. The concept uses a wireless transmitter in the pavement and a receiver unit mounted under the vehicle. The technology is meant to promote the growth of electric vehicles in New York City.

Reducing FDNY ambulance idling ($360,000)– The Fire Department of the City of New York averages 625 ambulance trips per day, strategically dispersed throughout the five boroughs to minimize response time. However, those ambulances can idle 12 hours a day, wasting fuel. Truck stop electrification company Shorepower Technologies of Utica is working with Eldor Electric LLLC of College Point and the FDNY on a pilot project to design, install and evaluate street-side electric connections to replace wasteful idling.

Car-share/van-pool efficiency ($325,000)– New York’s Social Bicycles seeks to combine car-share and van-pool programs to make more efficient use of idled vehicles for work commuting, airport trips, large entertainment events such as concerts, and other uses.
Other projects in the state include energy-efficient ways to control airplane traffic at major airports, research on constructing hybrid bus motors, and ways to improve truck aerodynamics and tire pressure monitoring.

Of course. Cuomo emphasizes cars/trucks over buses and subways. No surprise there.
