New permits reveal a 116-key hotel in development at 38-59 11th Street, in Long Island City, Queens. When complete, the building will comprise 54,164 square feet and rise to a final height of 16 floors and 179 feet. Filings also mention an enclosed parking volume for 31 vehicles.
Gene Kaufman Architect
The Gene Kaufman designed-1050 Sixth Avenue, dubbed ML House, is making significant progress in the heart of Midtown, Manhattan. In a break from the architect’s norm, the building will not be hospitality-minded; rather, it will yield 24 floors of apartments, as well as ground-floor retail space. The site is half a block away from Bryant Park, with access to several subway lines just a few blocks in any direction. Orin Wilf’s Garden Homes and Skyline is responsible for the development.
Back in August, YIMBY reported on the first renderings for a new tower coming to 267 Broadway, in Tribeca. Plans call for the Gene Kaufman-designed building to stand a total height of 510 feet, and after substantial design revisions, we have another update revealing substantial changes since 2017.
