177 Front and 200 Water:


Rendering of 200 Water Street, a former Jehovah's Witnesses site that's getting converted to condos.



Quote:
For 200 Water, here's the intel: they'll add two Landmarks-OKed penthouse floors on top of the existing four-story warehouse; the building will house mostly three-bedroom condos; and amenities will include public and private outdoor space, a doorman and a gym.

As for adjacent 177 Front Street, it'll be reborn as a 12-story structure with 105 rentals. The apartments will be one-, two-, and three-bedroom with public and private outdoor space, a doorman, a fitness center, a bike room. and a children's playroom. As per previous reports, they will probably lease for $2,000 to $3,000 per month. Some of the apartments will be designated affordable, and the building is set for completion in 2016.

Both buildings will be designed by Ariel Aufgang's Aufgang Architects. The photo, above right, pictures the back of 200 Water Street after Aufgang's design was approved by Landmarks last year.

Valuation of condemned Brooklyn site paves way for hotel



Quote:
A judge has valued a condemned property at 730-40 Atlantic Avenue, close to where the Barclays Center stands, at approximately $9.2 million. The move opens up the possibility of a 12-story budget hotel at the site.
The property was located in an industrial-use zone until 2001 and later condemned by the Empire State Development Corporation to make room for the Atlantic Yards project.

The property’s current owner, 730 Equity Corp, applied for a rezoning in that would allow a hotel to be built on the site.
While earlier valued at around $2 million, Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Wayne Saitta reviewed the prior appraisal and concluded earlier this month that the actual value of the property is around $9 million.
The judge said that Atlantic Avenue, unlike neighboring Pacific Street, “creates a situation that can support a larger development.”

“[E]ven though a 124,000-square-foot hotel is physically possible on the site, the Court must also consider whether such a hotel is financially feasible,” Saitta wrote in the ruling. The ESDC maintained that a hotel in that location would not be viable.

119-123 Kent Avenue



Quote:
Renderings are up for a new mixed-use development at 119 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, which will add a single-family residence atop a new commercial space. Anthony Fernicola is the site’s developer, and Muroff Architects — the source of the images — is designing.

An online flyer from Winick Realty has the details on the retail space’s specifications, and it will span “approximately 3,000 square feet” across the ground levels of both the new building and adjacent structures, from 119-123 Kent Avenue.

Permits for the development are slightly complicated, as existing buildings are being combined, and the actual ‘new’ component of the project will be relatively small. Outside of retail renovations, 121 and 123 Kent Avenue will remain largely intact.

119 Kent Avenue is a slightly different story; filings for the lot indicate that it will give rise to a 7-story building with 812 feet of ground-floor retail, and a 9,771 square foot residence above. With only one unit, the building will essentially become the Williamsburg equivalent of a mansion.

Umbrella Hotel:



Quote:
Melrose and The South Bronx are experiencing a boom in the hotel industry.

First the luxury boutique Opera House Hotel opened on 149th street between Brook and Bergen and now coming this fall is the Umbrella Hotel. Located at 681 Elton Avenue between E 153rd & E 154th Streets right off 3rd Avenue, the 7 story building will house 56 rooms with rates varying from $129 – $159 per night said one of the owners and Bronxite, Manny Chadah of AMG Elton LLC.

“There’s a lot going on in Melrose, with green construction and developments like Via Verde,” said Chadah when asked by us why he chose the Melrose location. “We’re located just 2 stops from Manhattan…we want to keep that money in The Bronx” he added.

According to Chadah, the Umbrella will also be a boutique hotel with luxury accommodations and plans are in the works to also have a rooftop lounge for guests and if all goes as planned, it will eventually be opened to the public.

South Bronx is trying to come back! Hopefully we get some high-rise proposals along the Harlem River now.

Its crazy to think that one resident will have 6 floors. He or she essentially lives in their own mid rise.

Its a great time for the Bronx. Population wise, it definitely is rising fast which is a positive outlook for the borough as it is now seen as a desirable location instead of somewhere to avoid. Same thing is happening to Harlem. In a sense, its full blown gentrification, but, from a development standpoint, with respect to highrises and mid rises, its providing a steady stream of construction. I only wonder how De Blasios affordable housing plan will impact the Bronx, and the potential projects that loom in a vast pipeline of daily proposals and construction.

Clinton Hill White Castle Will Become a Karl Fischer-Designed Apartment Building



Quote:
Say goodbye to this White Castle at the corner of Myrtle and Steuben in Clinton Hill, which will come down soon to make way for a five-story apartment building designed by Karl Fischer. New building applications were filed Wednesday for a five-story, 27-unit development at 533 Myrtle Avenue, as Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership was the first to report.

The mixed-use build will have 25,862 square feet of residential space and 5,910 square feet of commercial. There will also be indoor recreation space, a 1,830-square-foot patio on the second floor, and three bike storage spots on every floor.

Simon Dushinsky of the Rabsky Group is the developer on the permits, but public records list a private family trust as the owner.

Revealed: 11 Beach Street


11 Beach Street, rendering by Williams New York

Quote:
Permits indicate that the site’s total scope spans 107,367 square feet, and units will average nearly 4,000 square feet apiece; the building stands ten stories tall, and the renovation and refurbishment will maintain the site’s current size. Given the boutique nature of the project — and the enormous residences — prices are likely to be astronomical.

If the newest rendering is any indicator, 11 Beach Street will be an improvement on its relative predecessor, enhancing the surrounding neighborhood with new residences. As Tribeca has continued to revitalize, its northern side streets have been some of the last arteries to see improvements, and the surrounds of HFZ’s latest project are currently undergoing a mini-renaissance.

Completion of 11 Beach Street is slated for early 2016.

Lower East Side Awarded $335 Million For East River Barrier


HUD Secretary Donovan, Sen. Schumer, Governor Cuomo at the Riis Houses this morning. Photo via GOLES’ twitter feed.

Quote:
This morning at the Jacob Riis Houses, top local and federal officials gathered to announce the winners of a design competition meant to protect vulnerable areas hit hard by Hurricane Sandy from future storms. Shaun Donovan, Secretary of Housing & Urban Development, said $335 million would be allocated to create a barrier along the East River on the Lower East Side.

The berm will form what the officials called an “environmentally friendly public space” protecting more than 50,000 residents, as well as the Con Edison Plant.

======================================

UPDATE 3:42 p.m. Here’s reaction from State Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver:


Quote:
Our Lower Manhattan community was devastated by Superstorm Sandy and it is vitally important that we begin protecting our shoreline from future storms and rising sea levels. The Bjarke Ingels Group’s “Big U” resiliency plan will not only offer us crucial protection from flooding, it will be a wonderful improvement to our East River waterfront. The bridges and berms envisioned by the plan will serve as beautiful park space, providing greater access to the river even as we are better prepared for disaster.

Possible Mid Rise in the future (Unless the developer goes skinny, it could become a highrise). Looks like it will probably yield a mid rise given the size of the lot.
----------------------------

548 West 22nd Street

Quote:
Kevin Maloney’s Property Markets Group, the developer behind the high-profile Walker Tower project, is in contract to acquire a 40,000-square-foot commercial building in Chelsea for $40 million.

If extra air rights are bought, PMG could construct a building as big as 75,000 square feet on the site. Kilian LLC has owned the property at 548-554 West 22nd Street near 11th Avenue. The four-story building now has event and art gallery space.

Given the building’s location, zoning laws said the site must be equally divided up as both residential and commercial space.

Troubled 12-Story Delancey Bridge Tower Is Finally Rising




Quote:
A stalled project by less-than-stellar architect Michael Kang is stalled no more. Bowery Boogie reports that the 12-story Delancey Bridge Tower, located at 210 Delancey Street near Pitt Street, is active and rising, after running into troubles last summer that caused the Department of Buildings to issue a Stop Work Order. Records with the DOB show that two partial Stop Work Orders still exist on the property (the most recent one was issued just last month), but "safety work" and "structural steel erection and delivery" are still allowed. The SWOs forbid masonry work, construction of balconies, and order TR-1 (technical report statement of responsibility) field reports to be filed. There are a few other complaints filed against the site, including a violation for not having a safety manager present and a tripping hazard, as plywood was stacked on the public sidewalk. The building's structure currently sits at about four stories, and when it's complete, it will have 69 apartments.

New Location of Pratt Post Office Will Be Myrtle and Kent Street in Clinton Hill



Quote:
The new location of the Pratt post office formerly on Myrtle and Grand will indeed be at 609 Myrtle Avenue at Kent Street, a tipster confirmed. When he saw workers in the retail space of the condo building over the weekend they told him the space was going to become a post office.

The Nabe had a story earlier this year saying the post office had proposed the location. We’re not sure when they plan to open.

Bed Stuy’s Space-Age Apartment Building Takes Shape on Dekalb



Quote:
The Bed Stuy building with a futuristic porthole and center atrium is three stories high so far at 785 Dekalb Avenue. The domed apartment development will have 70 units, 36 bike parking spots and 35 subterranean parking spots, as we reported in April.

In case you’ve forgotten, the building’s crazy design looks a bit like a space-age city hall for sea monkeys where the miniskirted creatures might cavort in its slanted portholes and on its angled balconies. We can already see the rounded part of the facade and a cutout for the atrium.
====================================
http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2014...-frontpage-top
====================================

Note: Rendering of the final Design. Excuse the graffiti/writing. Some people are just jealous, low IQ a-holes. "Yuppie Boxes" .



Quote:
We were biking down Dekalb Avenue between Tompkins and Throop yesterday when we spotted this space-age rendering for a long-planned development at 785 Dekalb. Besides asymmetrical portholes and a glass dome, the six-story building will have 70 units spread across 52,429 feet of residential space, according to new building permits.

Amenities include 36 bike parking spots, 35 cellar-level parking spaces, laundry and a roof deck. Apparently there will also be a large atrium in the center of the building, shown on both the Schedule A filings and the rendering. Behind the fence, it looked like the first floor was being constructed.

Stalled project coming back to life!
------------------------------------------
Revealed: 290 West Street



Current Status:



Quote:
Springtime has seen the Tribeca boom continue to expand, and 290 West Street — which had seemingly been stalled — is finally reaching skywards. VE Equities is the developer, and Adjmi & Andreoli led the project’s design, which has apparently seen changes since its last reveal, via The Post.

The building will present another contemporary-classic addition to Tribeca, mixing both modern and historic features. 290 West Street has been downsized since the design was first unveiled, losing two floors from its top; the re-configured structure also has a protruding window from its penthouse, a contrast to indentations featured in the previous iteration.

Still, the facade will have Adjmi’s trademark casement windows, and it also looks to integrate rooftop terraces for future residents. While the old scale of 290 West Street was also appropriate — and its intricacies more subtle — the new design will still present an opportunity for contextual growth. As the northernmost lot in Tribeca, its redevelopment speaks to the scale of the neighborhood’s renaissance, and how every corner is now being revitalized.

10 Story development:
-------------------------------------

DOB approves build at 42-60 Crescent Street as warehouse completely demolished



Quote:
The first is that the Department of Buildings formally approved plans for the 10 story building on May 28.1 According to the permit, there will be 44,006 square feet of residential space with 2,309 square feet of ground floor commercial space. The building will have 40 condominium units with apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms. Amenities will include a children’s center, gym, parking and a roofdeck.2

The second bit of news has to do with the building that once inhabited the lot. Crews completely demolished that building earlier in the week, as you can see from the photo below. The project has kicked into warp speed ever since demolition permits were approved in late April.

New York’s First Artificial Beach Hopes to Open in 2016





Quote:
Nature’s overrated.

That’s why we live in New York, right? A towering metropolis of manmade awesomeness. Out in nature, there’s bugs, it’s dirty, and the nearest Starbucks is like, an excruciating mile or so away.

Nature haters rejoice because Blayne Ross, a creative entrepreneur and chief visionary for a dystopian and wonderfully artificial future, has proposed New York City’s first manmade beach. But don’t worry, none of the archaic features of a real beach will be involved. Tired of laying out on that faux white sand? Then grab lunch in the food court or do some shopping at the surf shop. Surf shops>Nature.

The imitation seashore is hoping to materialize by 2016. And by that time, the real beaches will be underwater from global warming or whatever anyway, right?
