Long Island City is hot. If you want one gauge of how hot, consider that YIMBY has written close to two dozen stories about or involving Long Island City just this year. While many projects are speeding along, one project – 41-21 28th Street – is moving a little more slowly, as seen in photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
Karl Fischer Architect
An abandoned factory on the southern edge of Borough Park was demolished last year, and now new rental apartments are rising in its place. YIMBY has a look at the design for the new building at 968 60th Street, near the border with Sunset Park and Dyker Heights.
Very few new manufacturing buildings have risen in the low-slung area around the Gowanus Canal, but one developer is turning the tide with plans for a 13-story industrial project at 148 Third Street, between the Third Street Bridge and the canal.
Effie Dilmanian, doing business as a Floral Park-based LLC, has filed applications for an eight-story, 22-unit residential building at 127 West 112th Street, in Harlem, located two blocks north of Central Park. The new structure will encompass 28,676 square feet and would fill a vacant 60-foot-wide lot. Residential space will span 20,675 square feet in the project, which means units will average a relatively spacious 940 square feet apiece. The apartments could be either rentals or condominium. Karl Fischer is the architect of record. Future residents would be within four blocks of subway stops on the 2, 3, B, and C trains.
Last week, YIMBY brought you news that 2100 Bedford Avenue in Flatbush had topped out. Now, we have a rendering for the eight-story project, which is being designed by the prolific and notorious Karl Fischer.
