Sounds like a project that is going to be proposed soon. 587 Main only has 280 units while the Church-Division project has like 700+. Good to know…
“Luxuria” on Grand Street has been rebranded to “The Grand” and redesigned. Unfortunately, the previously rendered classy facade is gone.
At least the name is 1000% better.
Heard about the name change weeks prior and was pleased with it. The new look is excellent.
site preparation abound

On July 27, Iona College broke ground on an estimated $35 million expansion of its School of Business, including a new school building.
Construction of the new building is expected to wrap up in the spring of 2020. The renovations will more than double the academic space for both the School of Business and Iona’s School of Arts & Science. The building will include high-tech classrooms and computer labs, a central atrium for events, meeting rooms, faculty offices, a lecture hall, a business career center, an expanded trading floor classroom and a media suite.
signs of life at 255 Hugenot Street. A new street will be created followed by a new highrise.
wow! I hope they use that design. The suburbs need some eye-catching highrise architecture.
more progress on the 255 Hugenot plot.

Seems like we’ve now learned what RXR’s next project is going to be. In the Legislative Agenda for the October 16th City Council meeting, they mention a 20-story tower located at 11 Garden Street. It would include 218 affordable units. This isn’t the first time they hinted towards the project, however. When proposing the Church-Division towers, they mentioned all of the affordable units for that specific project would be built elsewhere.
I guess it also needs to be said, but 11 Garden street is just part of the puzzle. Next to it is a city owned parking lot (to the right) that I assume would be included into the project’s site, along with 317 North Ave, which is an empty lot on the corner (to the left).

It’s incredible the amount of activity in the city. It’s such an exciting time.
