The architect aimed to connect the church with the residential addition by using arched windows in the front and adding horizontal planters along the sides.

Earlier this week, the architect celebrated the installation of the last floor and the completion of the main roof. Now with the structural work complete, the façade installation and interior fit-out lies ahead.

HDMI Holdings LLC of New Jersey is partnering with Manhattan's Melamed Architect and gearing up to build a new eight-story apartment building on a vacant lot at 168 East 100th St., between Lexington and Third avenues, according to Department of Buildings records.

Harlem’s renaissance has accelerated in recent years, and large new developments are now seemingly rising all over the neighborhood, from the 125th Street corridor down to East River Plaza. But opportunities for small-scale infill remain in abundance, and YIMBY can now reveal one such project set to rise at 42 East 132nd Street, between Madison and Park, designed by Melamed Architect PC.

Four-Story, Six-Unit Residential Project Revealed at 198 St. Nicholas Avenue, Bushwick

Last winter, YIMBY reported on plans to convert the single-story church at 198 St. Nicholas Avenue, on the Bushwick-Ridgewood border, into a four-story, six-unit residential building. 

The six-story rental building is designed by Melamed Architect, led by Yossi Melamed, and is being developed by the Pielet brothers, Uri and Yoni. It will hold 16 apartments within nearly 11,000 square feet of residential space, with one unit on the ground level, three above that, and two on the penthouse floor.

In 2010, a brick building on Conselyea Street in Williamsburg collapsed, injuring workers as they were attempting to add an extra floor and penthouse. Now mysterious developer Conselyea Residence LLC and architect Yossi Melamed are planning a completely new condo building on the site.

And the conversion trend rolls on, unstoppable. Yesterday the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to approve a rooftop addition and support a residential conversion at 40 Wooster Street in Soho. 

According to permits, Melamed Architect handled the renovation, which the listings describe as having "an airy Parisian feeling."
