They are the largest addition to the Long Island City residential market, and they’re nearing completion. The two towers located at 22-44 Jackson Avenue have long since topped out, and are now barreling toward opening day when they can finally add 1,115 residencies to the neighborhood. The project is housed on the former site of 5Pointz, a cultural significant structure that exhibited some incredible street art. G&M Realty is responsible for the development.
Sitting directly across the street to the east of 108 Chambers Street, another new residential project is changing the landscape of Tribeca. Located between Warren Street and Chambers, the 12-story 30 Warren Street has already-topped out, and is currently blanketed in a web of scaffolding and black construction netting. The building is being designed by Post-Office Architects (POA), while HTO Architects serves as the executive architect. Cape Advisors is developing, the same group behind 75 West Broadway just down the block to the west.
Rising now at 180 East 88th Street is the soon-to-be tallest tower on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. The 31-story residential building is being developed and designed by DDG, with aesthetic inspiration derived from renowned Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi. The structure has reached its 28th floor, leaving three stories remaining before topping-out occurs.
The prime blocks of the Upper East Side seldom see new developments, but renderings have now been revealed for the H.T.O. Architect-designed 27 East 79th Street. The project is the first new building to rise on its block in nearly forty years. The architect teamed up with the Parisian firm, Cabinet Albero Pinto, to create a structure fit for the neighborhood.
Since it stood two stories in height in April, the eight-story, 143-unit mixed-use building under development at 504 Myrtle Avenue, in northern Clinton Hill, has topped out. The latest photo comes via prolific construction chronicler Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the project grew slightly compared to filings retrieved for YIMBY’s April update. The structure now encompasses 125,585 square feet and has gained two units (up from 141). The ground floor will host 20,304 square feet of retail space, while the floors above will contain rental apartments, averaging 736 square feet apiece. Twenty-eight of them will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Silverstone Property Group and Madison Capital Realty are the developers. HTO Architects is behind the architecture and completion is scheduled for 2017.
