Back in April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 45-story, 415-unit mixed-use building at 29-26 Northern Boulevard (a.k.a. 29-22 & 29-32 Northern Boulevard), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Excavation began in the summer of 2015 and foundation work is now well underway, The Court Square Blog reports. The project has also seen slight revisions to its design. The latest filings detail a 43-story, 500,302-square-foot mixed-use tower that will stand 481 feet above street level. There will be 11,372 square feet spread across parts of the cellar, ground, and second floors. The project’s 467 residential units will be located on the second through 41st floors, averaging a rental-sized 791 square feet apiece.
Back in November of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for an 18-story, 133-unit residential project at 122 East 23rd Street (a.k.a. 121 East 22nd Street), in Gramercy. Now, the developer has filed plans with the Attorney General’s office, estimating the value of the project’s condominiums to be $503.5 million, according to The Real Deal. The 275,387-square-foot complex will have two components. A main 18-story tower will be located on the corner of East 23rd Street and Lexington Avenue, while a connected 13-story wing will front East 22nd Street. The buildings will be connected up to the ground floor, where 12,125 square feet of retail space, divided between four retail condos, will also be located.
It was over a year ago YIMBY last checked in on the mixed-use project under construction at 626 Flatbush Avenue, between Fenimore Street and Hawthorne Street in Brooklyn’s Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood. At that time, the 23-story building had just topped out. Now, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic, exterior work on the Marvel Architects-designed building is very close to done.
AvalonBay Communities and the New York City Department of Education’s Educational Construction Fund (ECF) are partnering to develop a roughly 1,100-unit mixed-use complex at 321 East 96th Street, on the Upper East Side. The complex will include rental apartments, two public schools with recreational spaces, and 20,000 square feet of retail space, according to The Real Deal. The development would take up the entire block, which is bound by East 96th and 97th streets and First and Second avenues.
In January, the 32-story BAM South tower at 300 Ashland Place (then known as 286 Ashland Place), in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, topped out. Since then, nearly all of the façade pieces have been installed, as seen in photos by our friend Tectonic.
Since 2014, the property owners Two Bridges Neighborhood Council and Settlement Housing Fund have been in talks with an unknown developer over the 11,800-square-foot development site at 235-247 Cherry Street, on the southern edge of the Lower East Side. Now, it has been revealed that JDS Development Group is planning to build a 77-story, roughly 600-unit mixed-use building, The Lo-Down reports. The rental apartments should come in studio, one-, and two-bedroom configurations, with roughly 150 of the units permanently renting at below-market rates. There would also be 10,000 square feet of retail and a 4,600-square-foot senior community center in the tower. SHoP Architects will design the 900-foot-tall tower, which will be clad in terra-cotta and glass.
