Construction is now eight stories above street level on the 88-story, 391-unit residential tower under development at 15 Hudson Yards, located on the corner of West 30th Street and Eleventh Avenue, in the Hudson Yards district. Progress on the tower can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. Building permits indicate the 910-foot-tall project will eventually measure 980,274 square feet.
Corona-based United Construction & Development Group has entered into contract to purchase the vacant, 3.7-acre mixed-use development site at 131-35 Roosevelt Avenue, a.k.a. 39-08 Janet Place, in downtown Flushing. The sale is expected close for more than $100 million, The Real Deal reported. The site can accommodate up to 870,000 square feet of mixed-use development. In fact, plans for four 16-story towers, connected by a common base, were approved in 2008. That would include 457 residential units, 313,000 square feet of commercial space, and 7,500 square feet of community facility space. It’s unclear whether the next owner will move forward with those plans, but United has reportedly met with the Ismael Leyva Architects, who was responsible for them.
Foundation work is now underway on the 38-story, 251-unit mixed-use project under development at 515 West 36th Street, to be located on the future corner of Hudson Boulevard in the Hudson Yards District. The site can be seen thanks to pictures taken by NY Construction Photography. The latest building permits indicate the tower will encompass 328,473 square feet and rise 418 feet to the roof, not including bulkhead elements.
