    Hoping that ^ means this project is a "GO".

    DOB shows recent Permits have been issued for sidewalk sheds at 369 Broadway and 371 Broadway. Both claim that the shed is for remedial repairs. But neither property shows a New Building application.

    There has also been a sidewalk shed up for a number of weeks in front of the building just to the north at 373 Broadway (picture attached). According to DOB the shed is for facade repair (workers have recently been seen power washing the facade there).

    379 Broadway

    Two five-story commercial buildings at 379 Broadway are now part of the downtown residential renaissance. Located between Franklin and White Streets, the buildings are undergoing interior demolition and being bolstered with structural supports.

    As demolition continues, contractor Leeds United Construction will begin adding 17 stories and converting the single structure to a residential tower. Developer Frankin Place, a subsidiary of Sleepy Hudson, expects to welcom new tenants to the 22-story building by September 2009.

    That ^ report shows the wrong address.

    DOB show that 379 Broadway is actually 377 - 379 Broadway, which is already a 12-story building. It sits on the block to the north.

    Lower Manhattan Info should read 369 - 371 Broadway (or just provide a link to the info here ).

    DOB Interior Demo Permit for 369 Broadway.

    DOB Interior Demo Permit for 371 Broadway.


    DOB Engineering / Shoring Permit 11.27.07:
    Application filed to provide cross lot shoring for the buildings desmising walls as shown on plans filed herewith.

    I hope that the dumpy building in the middle of this parcel with the horrible, tacked-on 1970's facade is razed or at least gets a new facade.

    That is 371 Broadway.

    I think we can rest assured that the facade we see there now is short-lived.

    I hope so. That building will not be razed though. Is that correct?

    That ^ is not clear to me.

    So far they have been issued Permits for "Interior Demo" at both 369 & 371. Plus the recent "Shoring / Structural" Permit for 371.

    Sometimes the actual "Demo" / "tearing it down" Permit comes later (this is what has happened with a couple of little buildings at 41-43 Bond Street, where initial Applications / Permits where for "interior demo" / "facade repair" but just recently a full New Building Application covering both of those lots has showed up at DOB).

    My gut says that both 369 & 371 Broadway will be totally demo-ed. But so far there is no paper-trail proof of that.

    CURBED has an update on this one today (and added, in a comment after-the-fact, that renderings for the new buildings are still "several more months" away) ...

    Awesome Architecture Alert: Broadway Getting Berkel'd

    CURBED
    February 20, 2008
    by Joey


    [Photo via PropertyShark]

    The Dutch built up this crazy little island, and now they're coming back to
    add a touch of the avant-garde. Ben van Berkel, one of the principal
    architects behind the UNStudio design firm—whose work upstate was sadly
    destroyed by fire recently—is designing his first condo building in America,
    and it's landing at 5 Franklin Place. Franklin whatnow? Franklin Place is a
    one-block alley that connects Franklin and White Streets, half a block west
    of Broadway and a few blocks below Canal Street. Yes, the residents'
    entrance will be in an alley, which immediately makes this the most awesome
    thing ever. Those twin five-story buildings seen above, at 369-371
    Broadway, are what sit on the lot now. The developer of the project is
    Sleepy Hudson, the same company behind the trippy High Line 519, but 5
    Franklin Place will be bigger—21 stories. The cat was let out of the bag back
    in November 2006, when Sleepy Hudson secured financing for the project.
    And indeed, there's already a Wired New York thread on the topic. But van
    Berkel's involvement is the splashy new headline. We assume 369-371
    Broadway will be razed to make way for the new building, but so far only
    interior demolition permits have been filed.

    Sullivan County Fire Investigator Art Hawker at the site of the blaze that tore through a modern mansion located off Burr Road in Bethel.Times Herald-Record/MICHELE HASKELL



    By BY Michal Lumsden

    BETHEL — Fire investigators yesterday sifted through the remains of a modern mansion off Burr Road that was recently featured in The New York Times and burned to the ground Tuesday night.
    The cause of the fire is still unknown, according to George Slater, the Kenoza Lake assistant fire chief.
    In October, the Times ran an architectural feature about the building, which was a second home owned by Leo Tsimmer.
    Designed by Dutch architects, the house had tinted glass for many of its outside walls and LED-lit polycarbonate panels in the kitchen.
    It was perched atop a Bethel hill with a commanding view of the surrounding area.
    Tsimmer was in New York City at the time of the fire; a passer-by called in to report the blaze.
    Crews from Kenoza Lake, Jeffersonville, Lake Huntington and White Lake battled the fire for three hours.
