R&B Development Group’s 22-story boutique hotel at 16 East 46th
Street, between Madison and Fifth avenues, just topped off. The 66-room

EDC looking for developer for Bronx site
The city Economic Development Corp. has issued a request for
proposals for the development of a 100,000-square-foot site in the
Castle Hill section of the Bronx. The industrial site is comprised of
two lots at 535 and 537 Zerega Avenue, and currently there is a
community garden on the site which will be relocated. Bidders for the
development project have to submit a green building plan identifying
the project’s sustainable design goals, address how it will include
minority- and women-owned enterprises and participate in the targeted hiring and workforce development program.

Manhattan gets three new landmarks
In addition to the Prospect Heights Historic District that was
established, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to designate
three individual landmarks in the city yesterday. The 210-year-old Federal style row house at
94 Greenwich Street was designated a landmark, as well as the Mount
Olive Fire Baptized Holiness Church, at 304-308 West 122nd Street,
which was constructed in 1897 for the Second Reformed Presbyterian
Church of North America. The John Peirce residence at 11 East 51st
Street also earned landmark designation. It was built between 1904 and
1906 for John Peirce, one of the country’s largest granite contractors
in the late 19th century. TRD
