Renderings have been revealed of Avalon Tower, a 70-story skyscraper that will be one of the tallest structures to rise in Jersey City and all of the state. Approved last month, the 950-unit building will be located at 444 Washington Boulevard near the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. The developer, known as Tower Cove Jersey City Urban Renewal, plans to build the tower on the northwest corner of the site, which is currently occupied by a parking lot. Part of the project includes public spaces called the East Coast Greenway Plaza and Overlook Plaza along Thomas Gangemi Drive that will offer Manhattan skyline views, a pedestrian terrace, a children’s play area, and a dog run.

PYE Properties and Gerner Kronick + Valcarcel Architects will again appear before New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission with proposals to expand and redevelop the historic Coney Island Shore Theatre for commercial use. Specific components would include a new hotel, a spa, and ground floor retail.
Local developer PYE Properties has revealed detailed plans to restore and expand the historic Coney Island Shore Theatre into a seven-story commercial venture. Originally completed in 1925, the landmarked property at 1301 Surf Avenue has reportedly sat vacant since 1973.
Permits have been filed for a fourteen-story residential building at 415 West 120th Street, in Morningside Heights, Manhattan. The area is well known for its pristine buildings, with portions of the neighborhood recently landmarked as a historic district. The site is seven blocks away from the 116th Street subway station serviced by the 1 train, and a steep six blocks from the B and C trains, on Frederick Douglass Boulevard. TriArch Real Estate Group is behind the applications.
The latest renderings reveal what’s coming to 40 East End, a 20-story condominium development rising on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Construction has been ongoing since 2015, when YIMBY first reported on the project. Lightstone is the developer.
