Development partners Newmark Knight Frank and Elms Realty Corp will soon debut a five-building mixed-use complex in Long Island City, Queens. Known as Urban Yard, the complex will eventually comprise 400,000 square feet of office and retail components in addition to a large parking garage.
Coming in at number 23 on our countdown of the tallest construction projects underway in New York City is 520 West 41st Street. YIMBY previously reported an exclusive rendering reveal for a possible two-tower mixed-use development at the Midtown West site, with the taller structure potentially rising 758 feet tall. Owner and developer Silverstein Properties called on CetraRuddy Architecture to create a pair of offset glass skyscrapers on the property near the edge of the Manhattan waterfront, and there have been a number of design changes over the past several years. Leeding Builders Group will be the general contractor.
YIMBY checked in on the progress of two properties under construction at Essex Crossing: 180 Broome Street designed by Handel Architects, and 202 Broome Street designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. One of the largest developments to come to the Lower East Side, Essex Crossing is a mixed-use project composed of nine different buildings as part of a $1 billion master plan to bring new affordable housing, retail, dining, entertainment, and communal facilities to the neighborhood.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 435 Rockaway Avenue in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Located between Pitkin Avenue and Belmont Avenue, the lot is near the Sutter Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train. Julian Pierre under the J Tees Printing LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Construction has topped out on 537 Summit Avenue, the second and tallest building in the three-tower Journal Squared complex in Jersey City. Despite its location across the Hudson River from New York, the 754-foot-tall reinforced concrete skyscraper’s prominent height earns it inclusion at the number-24 spot in YIMBY’s countdown of the tallest current projects in the city. Designed by HWKN/Hollwich Kushner and Handel Architects and developed by Kushner Real Estate Group, the tower stands dominantly over its shorter 563-foot-tall, 53-story sibling.
