Today YIMBY has both the reveal, and a construction update on 25-16 37th Avenue, aka ‘The Smyth,’ in Long Island City’s Dutch Kills neighborhood. Excavation is nearly complete, and foundation work is expected to begin shortly.
The 70-foot tall structure will yield 75,000 square feet in total, with 33,000 square feet dedicated to residential use and 12,800 square feet for retail use. The lot will have the capacity for 32 vehicles, 21 below ground, five on the first floor, and six on the second floor.
Retail will populate the rest of floors one and two. Floors three through seven will have 41 condominiums with an average size of 800 square feet. Residents will have access to a fitness center, among other amenities.
The design by Brent M. Porter & Associates takes influence from the manufacturing history of Long Island City. Large windows and traditionally colored masonry on top of two stories of dark metal produce a blend of modern boldness and industrial grit. The rendering shows twenty balconies and a shared open rooftop terrace on the seventh floor.
D.A. Development Group and JBL Development group are responsible for the project.
Completion is expected in 2018.
