Permits have been pre-filed for a 16-story mid-rise as part of a larger mega-development at 2926 West 19th Street, Coney Island, Brooklyn, which YIMBY first revealed back in January. The site is five blocks away from the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station, serviced by the D, F, N, and Q trains, and right across the street from a multi-purpose baseball ballpark.
The tallest of nine structures comprising the Essex Crossing development, at 115 Delancey Street, has officially topped-out. The last time YIMBY reported on the site, it had just risen above street level, back in late January. The 26-story building will include 195 rental apartments, of which 98 will be affordable. Its developer, Delancey Street Associates, is comprised of BFC Partners, L+M Development Partners, and Taconic Investment Partners.
Jersey City’s boom only seems to be getting more impressive as the year goes on, and now another tower is set to rise on the city’s skyline, at 25 Columbus Drive. The 52-story building will be designed by Handel Architects and developed by L+M Development Partners, and will have 750 rental apartments, a 35,000 square-foot school, four storefronts covering 16,485 square feet of retail space, and a public plaza, according to Jersey Digs. No completion date has been announced yet.
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration has selected Jonathan Rose Companies and L+M Development Partners to develop a multi-building, affordable mixed-use project at 1691 Madison Avenue, located on most of the block bound by Park and Madison avenues and East 111th and 112th streets in East Harlem.
A year and a half ago, YIMBY wrote about a pair of affordable rental buildings headed for the rent-stabilized Lafayette Boynton complex in the Soundview section of the South Bronx. Now, Nelson Management Group and L+M Development are breaking ground on the two towers at 1520 and 1530 Story Avenue.
