111 WEST 57TH STREET
At 1,428 feet, JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group’s 111 West 57th Street
will be the second tallest residential tower in the city rising 82 stories just south of Central Park. Its 60 apartments—46 of which will be in the tower and 14 of which will be in the building’s base, the landmarked Steinway Hall—will start at a hefty $14 million, making them among the priciest in the city when they hit the market
in early fall with Corcoran Sunshine. The slender tower, which will measure just 60 feet across, is designed by SHoP and will have interiors by William Sofield. The tower will be surrounded by a courtyard with a porte cochère nestled inside Steinway Hall. [Rendering by Hayes Davidson.]
Formerly known as 151 Maiden Lane, this 60-story tower
will come in at 670 feet high—tall for the Seaport, but it’s among a new class of sky-grazing residential towers along the East River and counts as its companion Extell’s One Manhattan Square, rising just north of the Manhattan Bridge. Its one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments will be designed by S. Russell Groves, and most will have terraces with no less than two exposures. Low-floor one-bedrooms will start at just over $1 million and apartments will reach up to around $20 million, presumably for the building’s collection of penthouses. Its 27th floor will have a dedicated Water Club.
Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld may not have the name recognition of Zaha Hadid, whose space-age condos will rise next door to the former’s new building along the High Line, but his forthcoming structure is no less impressive—and pricey—than his neighbor’s. Jardim, which translates to “garden” in Weinfeld’s native Portugese, comprises two 11-story buildings that will house 36 one- to four-bedroom apartments. Unsurprisingly, landscaped outdoor spaces are a large component of the condo: some homes will have private balconies, and there will be gardens on the ground level. Units will begin at $2 million when sales launch in early fall. [Photo via VUW Studio]
465 PACIFIC STREET
The site of the Avery Hall Investments and Aria Development Group-developed building rising between Pacific Street and Atlantic Avenue along Nevins Street bagged, according to brokerage firm Massey Knakal
, “the highest price per buildable square foot ever paid for a large development site of this size in Brooklyn.” With the high price of the site, it seems natural that the 30 Morris Adjmi-designed condos coming to 465 Pacific Street will also be rather expensive; but with a launch date set into fall, the team behind 465 Pacific Street is keeping the building’s pricing rather hush hush. What is
known, though, is that more than half of the building’s condos will have private outdoor space, all residents will have access to a 1,300-square-foot rooftop space, and that the building should be complete in early 2017.
280 SAINT MARKS AVENUE
The five-story apartment building rising between Vanderbilt and Underhill avenues in Prospect Heights is being developed by DNA and is designed by DXA Studio. In addition to 32 apartments (all with private outdoor space), the building will have an underground garage with 34 spaces and 54 bike parking spots. There’s no word on pricing yet, but the building should be coming to market within a week.
KING & SULLIVAN TOWNHOMES
Developer SANBA is bringing 22 new townhouses
to Red Hook, a neighborhood not often included in new development spotlights. The houses will replace a one-story warehouse, and Morris Adjmi’s AA Studio is the designer. Five different facades—steel, arches, terra cotta, brick, and corten—will be used for variety, and each house will have four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a backyard, a roof terrace, parking, and storage. No word yet on pricing, but sales will launch in September, and they should be complete within a year.
A once-vacant lot at the corner of Wooster and Broome streets is slowly becoming 52 Wooster, a six-story, mixed-use development. The ground floor will have a retail space, while the remaining five floors will feature true three-bedroom apartments, along with a schmancy penthouse (some residences will also have terraces). Apartments begin at $5 million.
The new modular building on East 27th Street
between First and Second avenues rolled out a few of its 22 affordably-priced micro apartments
earlier last week, but the development’s 33 market rate apartments aren’t due on the market until later this season. Like their affordable counterparts, the 33 market-rate apartments will range in size from 260 to 360 square feet, but will ask a whole lot more: compared to the $950 to $1,492 asks of the affordable units, the market rate apartments at Carmel Place—as the development’s now known—will be renting for between $2,000 and $3,000 per month. The Monadnock-developed and nARCHITECTS-designed building offers renters amenities in the form of communal areas, a doorman, a gym, a laundry room, and tenant storage, including bike storage.
520 WEST 28TH STREET
The first residential project of starchitect Zaha Hadid in New York City, 520 West 28th Street is bringing 39 condos in a swooping, futuristic shell to the High Line corridor. Sales were initiallyanticipated in early 2015
when the building’s teaser site
launched, but that never panned out. Now, with the installation of an art piece of a construction canopy
over the High Line that signals the building’s climb to 11 stories, it only seems natural that Corcoran Sunshine will be kicking off sales in the building in the next few months. Early reports for the building’s pricing had it starting at $4.6 million, with its penthouse going for $35 million, but developer Related Companies has had time and a half to mull over its asks meaning that they very well may be higher.
Joseph Chetrit is busying converting the former Cabrini Medical Center into a four-building mini-megaproject with a total of 223 apartments. All of the prices have been revealed
thanks to a tipster, but sales haven’t yet launched. Units range from studios to four-bedrooms and penthouses, with prices ranging from $885,000 to $33 million. The project will have a 12,000-square-foot resident’s club with a 75-foot lap pool, a wine room, a media room, courtyard, and—we are not making this up—a tween room.
393 WEST END AVENUE
Simon Baron Development and Quadrum Globalpicked up
the rental building on West End Avenue between West 78th and West 79th streets in 2012, and plans to bring it back to the market this fall. The prewar building’s apartment count has shrunk from 113 to 52, meaning that architect KinlinRutherfurd’s been tasked with combining the apartments into larger one- through four-bedroom units. A few crucial details for the project—like pricing—have been kept quiet, but prospective tenants only have to wait until September, when the project’s expected to hit the rental market, for more details.
ONE HUNDRED EAST FIFTY THIRD STREET
Aby Rosen sure loves his pricey Midtown real estate: The owner of Lever House and the Seagram Building (and the now-controversial Four Seasons Restaurant within) is also behind One Hundred East Fifty Third Street, a 94-unit tower to be designed by starchitect Norman Foster. The long-stalled project is finally moving forward, with Rosen’s RFR Holdings teaming up with China Vanke on the development; renderings show an angular facade that’s quite different from Jean Nouvel’s MoMA tower just down the block. Amenities include a gym with a 60-foot pool, a library lounge, and a media room, and sales are expected to begin sometime this fall. [Photo via DBOX]
515 HIGH LINE
The latest addition
to the High Line corridor is really banking on the cachet of the elevated park, dubbing itself 515 High Line. Designed by Soo Chan, the 11-story building will feature an undulating glass facade, and the 12 condos will boast a very hot amenity: terraces with fire pits. Units will be full-floors and duplexes, and prices will range from $5 million to $25 million. Shared building amenities include a catering kitchen and a gym with a steam room. Bauhouse Group is developing.
ONE SIXTY MADISON
It’s been about a decade since plans for a residential tower at the corner of 33rd Street and Madison Avenue were first pitched, but the saga’s
nearly come to an end as the 319 apartments prepare to hit the market this fall. The studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments will rent from $3,295, which will also afford renters access to the building’s 20,000 square feet of amenities like a 45th-floor lounge with a fireplace and outdoor terrace as well as a nearly 14,000-square-foot private park, fitness center, valet, bike storage, and 24-hour doorman. The building is being developed by J.D. Carlisle Development Corps, in partnership with DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners and Mitsui Fudosan America, Inc. and is designed by SLCE Architects with interiors by Philip Koether Architects. In keeping with the trend, the building will go by the name One Sixty Madison.
The chocolate-, Catalan-, and comic book-themed
XOCO 325 (former chocolate factory, Catalan name, comic book website) is a building that has been in the works for a long time, but developer DDG took over in 2012 and finally got things moving along. The building will feature 21 condos, ranging in size from 1,055 to 4,837 square feet, and many will have balconies or private terraces.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral School
on the corner of Prince and Mott streets in Nolita will debut as seven condos and two townhouses this September, when the Time Equities Inc. and Hamlin Ventures-developed project will hit the market from $7.74 million. The block-wide landmarked building will be fitted by Marvel Architects to include a wine room, private courtyard, cold storage, fitness/yoga studios, and in some select apartments, double-height ceilings.
A little over a year ago, JDS Development Group and Largo Investment announced their plans to raze three short buildings on West 24th Street between Tenth and Eleventh avenues and erect a condo building designed by Hollywood set designers-turned-architects and interiors gurus Roman & Williams. The 14-apartment building
, which will go by The Fitzroy
and stick out like a sore thumb against the city’s new glassy builds with its green terracotta facade and copper-framed windows, will have two- to five-bedroom apartments ranging in price from $5.3 million to over $18 million. The apartments are due to hit the market in October with Vickey Barron of Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. [Rendering by Hayes Davidson.]
22-22 JACKSON AVENUE
The boxy, ODA-designed condos next to the High Line have been in the works for some time, the building—located next to what used to be 5Points—inches ever closer to completion. Gershon & Company is developing the project, which will have a large common terrace with a swimming pool, plus a library, rooftop terrace, attended parking, and a lounge.
THE ENCLAVE AT THE CATHEDRAL
The exoskeleton-clad buildings
rising alongside (and blocking views of) the magnificent Cathedral of St. John the Divine are being developed by the Brodsky Organization, and they will add 430 rental apartments to the neighborhood. The west tower will feature studios to two-bedrooms, while the east tower will feature one- and two-bedrooms. Rents will start at $2,400 for studios, $3,050 for one-bedrooms, and $4,200 for two-bedrooms, and leasing should begin in late fall. [Photo via Field Condition
Another rather large rental building will join Sky
in crowning Midtown West the new Large Apartment Building Epicenter of NYC. Patrinely Group, LLC and DHA Capital’s new building 535W43—on West 43rd Street between Ninth and Tenth avenues—is designed by CetraRuddy and will have 280 studios, one-, and two-bedroom apartments. It’ll cost prospective tenants at least $3,000/month to nab an apartment here, but a lease will also give residents access to 20,000 square feet of building amenities including a fitness center, yoga area, demonstration kitchen, screening room, game room, club lounge, children’s playroom, pet spa, and bike storage. Apartments are expected to hit the market in November.
THE SORTING HOUSE
Cadence Property Group’s post office–topping condo
, the Sorting House (named because it will sit atop the Radio City Post Office on 52nd Street), wasn’t exactly popular when it was first proposed, but the project moved ahead regardless. Cadence is adding two floors to the current structure, which was built in the 1930s, and will reconfigure the top three floors to be used for residences. There’ll be 30 homes, including flexible one-bedrooms and larger three-bedrooms, and some will even have private terraces. As for price, one bedroom homes are expected to start around $1.3 million when sales begin this fall. Sadly, the Sorting House bears no relation to the Sorting Hat from Harry Potter
, so any hopes that this new condo building was some kind of magic condo building should be given up. [Rendering via Wordsearch]
30 WARREN CONDOMINIUMS
Although the development at 30 Warren Condominiums will stretch the entire blockfront along Church Street between Warren and Chambers, the building will only have 23 condos—meaning they’re going to be big. The apartments will be divided between one-, two-, and three-bedrooms, including full-floor penthouses, and will have starting asks just below $2 million. Cape Advisors is developing the project, which replaces two small mixed-use buildings
, and Post-Office Architectes is its design architect. Corcoran Sunshine will be marketing the building when it launches sales this fall.
212 FIFTH AVENUE
Once part of the Ring family’s large real estate portfolio, 212 Fifth
is on its way to becoming 48 condos, courtesy Madison Equities. They’ll be large and expensive, starting at $3.9 million for a 1,550-square-foot two-bedroom. Prices will max out around $4,500 per square foot, and the building will be topped by a triplex penthouse. According to the Times
, interiors will feature chevron-pattern oak floors and Calacatta marble kitchen counters. Additionally, there will be six 400-square-foot studios on the second floor that home owners can purchase as staff apartments.
City Point’s 48-story tower will add 440 rental apartments to booming Downtown Brooklyn. Rents in the COOKFOX-designed, Brodsky Organization-developed building will start at $2,450 for studios, $3,300 for one-bedrooms, and $4,500 for two-bedrooms. The tower has 23,000 square feet of amenity space, including a fitness center, basketball court, and “quarter-acre green terrace and landscaped sky terrace.” The tower joins an 80-percent affordable tower
, as well as a probably-very-tall tower from Extell
. [Photo via Field Condition
The 24 market rate condos at 8 Vanderbilt Avenue, the last apartment building at the Navy Green megaproject, will hit the market this fall. There are one- to three-bedroom units, and prices will start at $575,000. The other 74 units in the building are affordable, and applications for those were due at the end of May
. FXFowle Architects designed the building, which shares a 30,000-square-foot courtyard with three other buildings and 23 townhouses.
118 EAST 59TH STREET
Hong Kong-based Euro Properties is building a 40-story tower at 118 East 59th Street
with just 29 condos in Midtown East. Apartments average 2,000 square feet, and prices will start at $4 million for one-bedrooms (that’s $1.2 million more than wasfirst reported
). Soo K. Chan of SCDA architects designed the building inside and out, and it will be topped by a four-bedroom triplex penthouse. The building will have two floors devoted to amenities, including an outdoor lounge with a custom water feature.
Ideal Properties Group is converting a prewar building on Brooklyn’s Fifth Avenue into a green building
with six solar powered apartments. The development will have five one-bedroom rentals that will ask between $2,900 and $3,300 and one two-bedroom apartment asking $4,200. The Paul J. Gallo-designed apartments will have fully equipped kitchens, a washer and dryer, and some will have outdoor space. Appropriately, the building will go by The Greenstone.
180 EAST 88TH STREET
Soon to be the tallest building north of 72nd Street,180 East 88th Street
is yet another DDG development launching this fall (these guys are busy!). It will feature 48 condos with 16-foot ceilings, and the building will boast several custom artworks, including a piece by piece by German artist Jan Hooss in the lobby and a diorama by Sean Murtha in the sales gallery. Prices have not yet been revealed.
David Chipperfield Architects’s first ever residential condo development is on the rise at 16 West 40th Street
. Named the Bryant for its proximity to Bryant Park (it’s across the street), the development will hold 57 condos on floors 16 to 33, while the lower levels will hold a hotel. The condos will range from one- to four-bedrooms, and there will be two duplex penthouses. A name change could be in the cards, as developer HFZ Capital has been sued by
the owners of the very nearby Bryant Park Hotel—evidently, they own the trademark “The Bryant Park.”
The SHoP-designed 34-story tower rising on the Upper East Side shall be known, for some reason, as Citizen360 and go by the address of 360 East 89th Street, not 1711 First Avenue
, as previously reported. Developer Anbau’s website
used to tout the project as “affordable luxury,” but that seems tohave been dropped
with the address change. The building will have 83 one- to four-bedroom units, plus penthouses, ranging from 900 to 4,500 square feet. Prices will start at $1.3 million and max out at over $12 million (so yeah, nothing “affordable” here). Interiors will be designed by “holistic designer Clodagh,” who “will bring a sense of serenity” to the amenity spaces. The lobby will feature a green wall, and there will be a fitness center with a yoga studio and spa. There will also be “an entertainment suite with art studio, music room and screening room,” as well as a lounge and playroom.
559 WEST 23RD STREET
It’s been a long, long road for the lot at 559 West 23rd Street, but it seems the oft-stalled development there is finally becoming a reality. Though details were scant the last time we checked in, more information is now available from Corcoran, which is representing the building. It’ll be a 13-story building with six three-bedroom condos, each of which will come with double-height ceilings and private outdoor spaces. The units begin at $4.5 million and sales are expected to begin in October. [Rendering courtesy Corcorcan]
12 WARREN STREET
If DDG delivers, 12 Warren Street could be one of the most interesting new buildings. The design is inspired by the uneven stacking of bluestone, and the renderings really go all the way
with it. The 12-story building will hold 13 full-floor, duplex, and triplex homes. A model unit will be designed by the Future Perfect.
221 WEST 77TH STREET
Naftali Group’s latest garage-to-condo conversion is an 18-story, 26-apartment building. Details on pricing are scant right now, but here’s what we do know: Like Naftali’sother development on the block, 221 West 77th Street is designed by in-demand Danish architect Thomas Juul-Hansen. And according to its teaser site, it will have two- to five-bedroom condos with “spacious floor plans, light-filled rooms, large casement-style windows, Juliet balconies, and exceptional amenities—including a basketball court, gym, roof terrace, and wood-paneled library.”
1 GREAT JONES ALLEY
According to broker Fredik Eklund, there are already “record” registrations for this ultra-luxe condo rising on what was once a Noho flea market. There are only 14 units in the building, including a duplex penthouse, and prices will range from $3.775 million to over $20 million. Adding to that super-exclusive feel, the main entrance for residents is actually on Great Jones Alley rather than street-facing, and is a private, Belgian block-lined alleyway. [Rendering via March.]
55 WEST 17TH STREET
Architect Morris Adjmi is working with Toll Brothers City Living on this project, a 19-story building that will have 53 one- to four-bedroom apartments, once completed. The building is chock-full of luxe amenities, including an outdoor common area with a grill; a playroom for kids; a billiards room; and a fitness center. (How else would they justify the asking price for those apartments, which ranges from $1.5 million to $13.3 million?)
Onetime mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis has a few projects under construction on or around Myrtle Avenue in Fort Greene, and now, one of those—the Giovanni, located at 81 Fleet Place (pictured in the center of the rendering)—is nearly ready for renters. With 205 units, it’s not quite the largest of Cats’s Fort Greene developments (that would be his building at 86 Fleet, which will have 400 apartments), but it does have plenty of amenities, including a game room, yoga studio, an outdoor garden, and a media room. It’s also notable for being the building that Catsimatidis allegedly wanted to call “The John” (the others are also named for his family members), but held off because, “”Nobody wants to live in ‘The John.'” Units begin at $2,150 for a studio, and go up from there.
THE GRAND TWO
One of the many major developments landing in Flushing, Onex Real Estate’s The Grand Two will bring 247 apartments to the Queens neighborhood. The development, which is the second phase of The Grand at Sky View Parc
, is designed by architectsAlliance and will feature a 24-hour staffed lobby, a four-acre landscaped rooftop garden, a basketball court and tennis court, and access to a lounge and fitness facility. Apartments are due on the market in October and will go for around $1,000 per square foot.
No, not the Staten Island development
: This is an 11-unit building going up in Midwood, Brooklyn, with sales beginning sometime this month. The asymmetrical, white-and-glass facade may stick out like a sore thumb on a quiet Brooklyn block, but it comes with Manhattan-esque amenities, including a swimming pool and a “virtual doorman.” There’s also an outdoor terrace on the roof with panoramic views of Manhattan and Brooklyn.
39 MADISON STREET
This new condo in Bedford-Stuyvesant isn’t meant to be ostentatious—according to the brokers at Corcoran, it’s “designed to blend into the neighborhood”—but the 12 units within are quite large, each with a private outdoor area and modern design. One-bedroom homes begin at $600,000 and prices rise from there, with penthouse and garden units available for around $1.3 million. [Photo courtesy Corcoran]
223 PULASKI STREET
The ever-prolific Brookland Capital
will be launching sales at 223 Pulaski Street in Bed-Stuy come mid-September. The project between Throop Avenue and Marcus Garvey Boulevard will bring 8 apartments split between a studio, six one-bedrooms, and a two-bedroom duplex to the area. L&C Associates, LLC is designing the building, where amenities will include audio and video intercoms, stainless steel appliances, and washer and dryer hook-ups. Some apartments will have private outdoor space. Pricing is still TBD.
The latest addition to the Lower East Side is the unfortunately named Jones LES, and the 78 apartments will be kind of ridiculously expensive (though pricing is still unconfirmed). Studios will start in the “low $3,000 range,” one-bedrooms in the “high $3,000 range,” while two-bedrooms will start at $5,000 and three-bedrooms at a claw-your-eyes-out $10,000. Shared amenities include a “two-story library lounge with billiard table,” a fitness center, a courtyard, and a rooftop terraces with grills, sung lounges, an outdoor shower, and a movie screenwhere you can watch Die Hard
. Leasing will begin October 1.
A new rental building called the Grove at 30-40 21st Street in Astoria will feature 62 units
, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. All units will have a washer/dryer, maple floors, and Italian kitchen cabinetry, and many apartments will also have private outdoor space. Rents have not yet been revealed.
AKA SUTTON PLACE
Just months after unleashing the first crowdfunded condo-hotel hybrid
on the city, developer AKA plans on striking again
at Sutton Place. The developer will operate an extended stay hotel with Asfour Guzy Architects-designed condos out of the former Sutton Hotel at 330 East 56th Street. The one- and two-bedroom apartments will go for between $1.5 million and $2.5 million, and will come to market as early as September.
The fate of the mid-block lot on Washington Avenue between Fulton Street and Atlantic Avenue was uncertain for nearly a decade before developer Sam Boymelgreen signed on to bring 10 apartments to the site in a project called Aperture 538
. Boymelgreen tapped architect Luca Andrisani, who’s designed a Brooklyn Bridge-inspired facade for the project. Apartments in the building will range from studios to three-bedrooms and from $449,000 to $2.4 million,. Each apartment will come with private outdoor space, and building residents will have access to a shared rooftop and bike storage. Sales are anticipated to launch within the next week.
41-07 CRESCENT AVENUE
Architecture firm Fogarty Finger designed a nine-story, 48-unit rental building at 41-07 Crescent Avenue. It will have studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a gym, lounge, common roof deck. Construction began about a year ago, and leasing will start in October.
350 DEGRAW STREET
In Carroll Gardens, a small four-unit building at 350 DeGraw Street features two- and three-bedroom units, with prices ranging from $1.2 million to $4.2 million. Three of the units have private outdoor space, and the building has a shared rooftop deck with Manhattan views.
40 SOMERS STREET
Solomon Brecher turned the townhouse at 40 Somers Street in Bed-Stuy into three three-bedroom condo units with prices ranging from $450,000 to $550,000. Not much else to say about this one.
