The project proposes a (2)-story base with (5) interior parking spaces and 8,776 SF of commercial/retail space. The tower will contain 22 residential floors with 169 units. The 25th floor will be utilized for indoor and outdoor amenity. Two visitor parking spaces are allocated outside in the private drive. An outdoor patio is proposed for the ground floor commercial/retail. The “Sewer Easement Height Bonus” of the Morris Canal Redevelopment Plan XI(A)(4)(c)(xi) is being utilized for the project.

Looks like the piling rig was just there for test piles (it’s gone today), but presumably it’ll be back

What a very distinct and out-of-the-blue location for a highrise! Just like the one being built on 26-28 Van Reipen Avenue.

Looks like they’re doing about a floor a week. So will probably top-out in late winter.
