Development is underway for a new high-rise in Brooklyn Heights. It has been less than a year since the old Brooklyn Heights branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) was demolished, at 280 Cadman Plaza West. Work has progressed swiftly since, and thanks to images from Tectonic, we can confirm the new skyscraper has reached its second floor, with foundation work now apparently complete.
Permits have been filed for a 37-story high-rise at 1681 Madison Avenue, in East Harlem, Manhattan. The site is three blocks away from the 110th Street subway station on Lexington Avenue, serviced by 6 trains, and four blocks away from the 110th Street subway station on Central Park North, serviced by the 2 and 3 trains. Manhattan-based Rose Companies is responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 144-21 Sanford Avenue, in Murray Hill, Queens. The site is five blocks away from the Murray Hill train station, serviced by the Port Washington line on the LIRR. The Main Street-Flushing subway station is seven blocks away, end of the line for 7 trains. Rong Xin Sanford Realty LLC is the developer.
Construction at Extell’s 138 Willoughby, aka Brooklyn Point, is moving along quickly, with concrete now at the tenth floor. Once opened, the skyscraper will complete the City Point mega-development in Downtown Brooklyn. The mixed-use multi-building expansion has already produced two residential towers and a 600,000 square foot retail space with a food market, grocery store, event space, and movie theater.
A rendering has been spotted at 118 East 1st Street, a nine-story new development in the East Village directly overlooking the Lower East Side. The site is three blocks away from the Essex Street subway station, serviced by the F, J, M, and Z trains. Six blocks away is the Tompkins Square Park. Cynthia Wu and Robert Marty are listed as the developers.
