160 Imlay Street Rendering; Scaffolding Down at 5 Beekman

New, 4 comments

RED HOOK?Last fall, we toured two giant waterfront warehouses with architects Adjmi & Andreoli, who plan to convert the spaces into mixed-use buildings with apartments and artist studios. Since then, construction permits have been filed for 160 Imlay Street, and the architect now has a rendering of the future building. As you can see with the now/future photos above, the building's exterior won't be drastically altered. Interior structural work is now underway, but there's no word on when the place will be complete. No permits have been filed for the other warehouse, located at 202 Coffey Street.

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?The beauteous 5 Beekman Street is on its way to becoming a hotel, and while construction work usually means scaffolding sheds go up, the opposite has happened here. An operative sent a couple photos (after the jump), noting, "After being up for about 300 years, workers today started removing sidewalk bridge that surrounded 5 Beekman St. Perhaps they'll be putting up a new one soon for the long-awaited overhaul..." Probably, so let's enjoy the open sidewalk while we can. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

UPPER WEST SIDE?Sales of multi-family buildings don't usually pique our interest, but the mansion at 36 Riverside Drive has an interesting story. The 7,380 square-foot, five-story house just hit the market for $8.5 million, and it was one of the first mansions built along the drive way back in 1888 for coal barons George and Clarence Lowther. The press release from Eastern Consolidated says the building has eight-residential units that can be delivered vacant, but the release leaves out one minor detail: the building has been operating as a bed and breakfast?it's even a New York Magazine critic's pick! The press release makes no mention of the B&B, probably because it was illegal for quite some time. It's been a hotel since 1986, but in 2011, the DOB slapped the owners with several violations for operating illegal short term rentals. But it has rave reviews, so who cares, right?
