A massive, mixed-use development is moving ahead in East Harlem, reports Politico, as the city has selected Jonathan Rose Companies to work with L+M Development Partners on the 751,000-square-foot project. Dubbed Sendero Verde (“green pathway”), the site is located on the block bound by East 111th and 112th Streets and Park and Madison Avenues, and it will create 655 affordable passive house apartments, as well as a YMCA, job training center, 85,000-square-foot DREAM charter school, space for the local non-profit Union Settlement, a grocery store, restaurant, and preventative health care facility run by Mount Sinai.
L+M Development Partners
Over the summer, L+M Development Partners demolished the former Financial District flagship of J&R Music and Computer World to make way for a 54-story, mixed-use condo tower at 25 Park Row, just across from City Hall Park in an area quickly becoming a more vibrant, 24-hour neighborhood. Site excavation is now well underway for the 700-foot building, reports CityRealty, who also uncovered several new renderings and zoning diagrams of the COOKFOX-designed project that show its slab-shaped body made of masonry and glass, mid-level terraces, Art Deco crown, and elegant residential base.
The Two Bridges waterfront is one of the last bastions of affordability in lower Manhattan, but lately it seems word is getting out about its scenic waterfront locale that overlooks the rejuvenated East River shoreline and turn-of-the-century suspension bridges. Recently, two of the city’s top high-end builders, Extell and JDS Development have penned soaring towers for the down-to-earth corner of the Lower East Side. Adjacent to those developments, sits the rental building 275 South Street, which is currently undergoing a dramatic overhaul that will renovate its exterior, makeover many of its capacious apartments, and debut a brand-new package of amenities.
