Smile NEW YORK | 603 Mother Gaston Boulevard | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 603 Mother Gaston Boulevard



Quote:
Dattner Architects posted tons of new renderings and diagrams for the 12-story, low-income housing development planned for a parking lot at Van Dyke Houses in Brownsville. The form of the building has not changed, but the most visible and interesting part, a rounded curved corner, has been recolored, and is now a cool and refreshing oyster white instead of orange-brown.

Here is the one rendering released two years ago, when the New York City Housing Authority first announced the project. CAMBA Housing Ventures is the developer. (CAMBA is also working on the second phase of affordable rentals next to Kings County Hospital in Flatbush, an otherwise unrelated project.) It will rise next door to the 100-year-old, William Tubby-designed Stone Avenue Library, at 581 Mother Gaston Boulevard, which the LPC is considering landmarking.

Thread Update: Relating to floor count and distinction between mid and high rise.

1) Been doing some research, and I've noticed many 12 floor structures are really high rises in the grand scheme of thing. This is due to the increased floor heights over the years, and mechanical. For sake of classifying them

A) 12 floors or greater, and/or 120 ft or greater go in highrise compilation.
B) 1-11 floors go in midrise compilation.

Usually sources such as Emporis, and CTBUH also list 12 floors as the minimum for a highrise, so to keep with the trend, thats how they will be classified in terms of the content of the thread. Also in terms of the literature, much of the news tends to refer to them as high rises, with the trend of midrises being 6-11 floors and low rises being less than 6 floors.

2) Updated first post with the info along with mid/low compilation.

Smile NEW YORK | 109 Montgomery Street | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 109 Montgomery Street



Quote:
And now we can add 109 Montgomery Street to that list. Earlier today, an application was submitted to the Department of Buildings to erect a 12-story, 173-unit apartment building – likely rentals – mid-block between Washington and Franklin avenues.

The 173 apartments will be spread over 132,000 square feet of net residential space, for an average unit size of 760 square feet, with between 11 and 16 units per floor. No retail is allowed, and the developer is planning a 70-car garage – the absolute minimum required by zoning.

I know this is just a random midrise in a nondescript outer neighborhood, but I can't overstate how important these types of projects are in terms of NYC's future.

Brownsville is, arguably, the least desirable neighborhood in NYC, or at least was, in past years. Perhaps no longer. The fact that it's being heavily redeveloped with midrises going up everywhere, while keeping the public housing (so keeping the affordability and income mixing) is great news for the city's future. It means there is no place in the city that isn't becoming at least somewhat desirable.

Brownsville/East NY in Brooklyn, and the South Bronx, probably traditionally the "worst" areas are getting tons of these midrise buildings, and they are showing tremendous revitalization. It's great news for NYC. The South Bronx, especially, is almost unrecognizable.

Renderings Revealed for: 43-22 Queens Street




Credit: In thread link.

Thread: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...72#post6947572

Quote:
Rockrose is developing the site, and DOB filings indicate the total scope will measure 623,337 square feet, the vast bulk of which will be dedicated to 783 apartments. The 34,477 square-foot remainder will be allocated to ground-floor retail space. Given the average unit size of approximately 750 square feet, and PTACs present in the renderings, rentals seem very likely.

With a roof height of 580 feet, 43-22 Queens Street will rank as the third-tallest residential building in Long Island City, after news broke earlier that 29-37 41st Avenue would stand 70 stories and 772 feet tall. That tower will overtake Heatherwood’s 646-foot tall 42-12 28th Street, which is already under construction.

Great job on compiling the threads for NYC.

Its a lot of threads though, would be nice if they were broken down by borough (how many projects are in Queens, Brooklyn, or the Bronx?).
Also, I noticed you listed the projects in JC and Newark, I was wondering if you'd have the "other" section where you can put projects such as The Modern in Ft. Lee: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showthread.php?t=202449

I could do a Fort Lee section but the thing is there aren't really many projects for that area. Modern Phase 1 and 2 is a biggie, but the rest tend to be mid rises, which I put in the other. If the project count increases for that area, I'll add it.

New York /591 Third Avenue/239 feet /20 floors

CB Developers putting up 20-story Murray Hill building
74 apartments slated for 591 Third Avenue

March 12, 2015
Tess Hofmann

Quote:
Charles Blaichman’s CB Developers has plans to erect a 74-unit mixed-use building in Murray Hill, according to permits filed with the city today.

The property currently holds three five-story apartment buildings. CB Developers purchased the property at 591 Third Avenue in December, along with the adjacent lot at 589 Third Avenue for $14 million. The developer also paid $10 million for 587 Third Avenue.

The permits for the new structure call for 71,696 square feet of residential space and another 4,231 square feet of commercial space on the basement and ground-floor levels of the building. Floors two through 20 will each hold between two and five apartments. The building’s roof will accommodate a terrace area and a private roof deck. The building will reach 239 feet.

Next door, CB Developers is overseeing another development, an 18-story, 91-unit project, in partnership with Hoboken, N.J.-based Ironstate Development and Soho-based SK Development Group. CB also purchased a four-story building next to that project, at 204 East 39th Street, from the Kingdom of Lesotho last year.

Representatives from CB were not immediately available to comment. Rawlings Architects is the architect of record. - See more at: http://therealdeal.com/blog/2015/03/....1W9lQr0N.dpuf

New York/ East 37 st/ 700ft/ 65 floors

65-Story, Garden-Centric Condo Tower Planned for East 37th

Thursday, March 12, 2015
Jessica Dailey

Quote:
A tall, slender condo tower designed by Perkins+Will is headed for East 37th Street. The design for the tower, which is bisected by five open-air gardens, debuted in Cannes, France as part of MIPIM, "an international property event," where it won an award. The developer is the Turkish firm Nef, and the building is set to rise 65 stories and more than 700 feet. This is Nef's first project in New York. The plans for the building have been so under wraps that even the press team for Perkins+Will did not know the address of the site (they are getting back to us), and a variety of Google searches provided nothing in the way of past coverage, so this project is quite the surprise.

A press release touting the award included two renderings, plus a detailed description of the design. "Emerging from its shimmering, angled curtain wall, the building is organized with five clusters of shared amenity and park spaces for residents to enjoy, at specific intervals along the tower's rise. This is a marked departure from other condominium towers, which use small exterior balconies or, in some cases, cluster all shared spaces in one area."

New York/ 493 Eleventh Avenue/ 450 ft/ 45 floors

Committee Calls for All Affordable Housing at 39th Street Site

Thursday, March 12, 2015
Evan Bindelglass




Quote:
Community Board 4's Land Use Committee will soon issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a 25,000-square-foot site at 493 Eleventh Avenue, a city-owned parking lot currently used by the NYPD (and formerly the site of a slaughterhouse). At a hearing yesterday evening, the Land Use Committee drew up a list of wants for the site, and made clear that it thinks that whatever is built there should be 100 percent permanent affordable housing. The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), however, have indicated that the development will be only 50 percent affordable.

As far as income restrictions go, the committee is calling for AMI (area median income) bands of 80 percent, 100 percent, 125 percent, and 165 percent, though members indicated that they would go as low as 65 if the building was 100 percent affordable. The committee also called for 50 percent of the building's units to be two-bedrooms or larger, and for 50 percent of the building to be reserved for those in the community. Additionally, it wants the city to lease the site, rather than sell it outright.


Quote:
As for the size of the building, the committee proposed the building be 450-feet-tall or about 45 stories, which it estimates would hold about 300 units. However, if the retail envisioned for the first and second floors was exempted from FAR (floor area ratio) regulations, the building could potentially be a couple stories taller. Members suggested some level of "façade articulation" so that the building isn't a boring box, as well as a green building with rooftop space open to all residents, a children's playroom, and possibly a computer room.

The committee also called for an affordable supermarket, with one member of the public complaining about the ridiculous price of ice cream in Manhattan when compared to prices in New Jersey. Other suggestions included a not-for-profit-type theater or rehearsal space at the cellar level (several people complained about small theaters being priced out of their buildings), along with pre-K and affordable daycare.

Finally, the committee called for possible landscaping on 39th Street abutting the site. However, this is dependent on whether 39th Street is still mapped between Eleventh and Twelfth avenues, where the Javits Center has its north annex.

Smile NEW YORK | 44-26 Purves Street | 374 FT | FLOORS

Project: 44-26 Purves Street



Quote:
We were just by 44-26 Purves Street (a/k/a 44-30 Purves) earlier this month1 to follow-up on construction permits that received approval.2 When we walked by the lot last night, we saw the below rendering for the building posted on the fence, promising a October 31, 2017 completion on the site. As you can see in the rendering, the building will tower over other buildings on Purves Street. Work should begin soon on the project.

FXFowle is attached as the architect of record, and the building will span 207,053 square feet, split between a 517 square foot commercial component, and 270 apartments. At a total height of 374 feet, ceilings will also be surprisingly generous compared to most new construction in the neighborhood.

Ditto all around. And some of these buildings really look quite nice.

I'd say the best thing to do to see much of this construction or infill is to literally drive around the outer boroughs. When people think NYC, they think Manhattan, but in terms of construction, much of it is actually outside of it. You'll see so many random projects, many quite nice, hidden in Brooklyn for example amongst streets that are not well known. Lots of little infill everywhere, and in terms of highrises. Theres so much going on that sometimes some projects are missed. Bronx though is booming. Lots of housing is being added, and I believe some zones are also prime targets for DeBlasio's Affordable Housing Plan.

In terms of the housing plan, De Blasio has been taking actions to accelerate it and increase density. With a ton of housing expected to jam the pipeline over the next couple of years, many neighborhoods are literally going to transform; especially the ones that are the targets for a bulk of the new housing.

Smile NEW YORK | 54-27 Myrtle Avenue | FT | 17 FLOORS

Project: 54-27 Myrtle Avenue



Quote:
AB Capstone posted a rendering for a mega development that looks to be slated for Ridgewood. We’re going off very little info from AB Capstone — their description only specifies that this is a mixed use development in Queens — but it pretty perfectly matches up to this property they purchased last fall. Located at 3-36 St. Nicholas Avenue, 3-50 St. Nicholas Avenue and 54-27 Myrtle Avenue, it’s an uneven parcel situated right next to the elevated train tracks (which were included in the rendering above). There are no DOB applications filed yet for development, only applications to demolish the current warehouses on site.

Smile NEW YORK | 1175 Boston Road | FT | 12 FLOORS

Project: 1175 Boston Road



Quote:
A new affordable apartment building that includes $550 per month studio apartments — as well as units specifically designated for formerly homeless people on Medicaid — is slated to open in The Bronx by this summer.

The building, called Boston Road Residence and located at 1175 Boston Rd., will include 154 studio apartments, 60 of which will be affordable units with a monthly rent of $550 for people making between $18,000 and $35,280 per year.

The affordable apartments will be leased through a lottery. Fourty-six of them are meant for people 55 or older, and residents who live in Bronx Community Board 3, where the building is located, will receive preference for half of the units. Veterans will receive preference for the units as well.
The remaining 94 apartments will be for homeless individuals who use Medicaid often, and the project will include amenities like a fitness room, computer lab and garden.
