Construction has been slow-moving this year for the JACX development in Long Island City, Queens. Two 26-story towers are rising at 28-07 Jackson Avenue and 28-10 Queens Plaza South, and the pair will yield new office space marketed toward the technology sector. Images for the site reveal construction has risen as high as the twelfth floor, an increase of eight floors since January. Tishman Speyer and Qatari Diar are responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 140 Remsen Avenue, East Flatbush, Brooklyn. The site comes eight blocks away from the Sutter Avenue-Rutland Road subway station, serviced by the 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains. Mark Rosenberg is listed as responsible for the development.
NoMad has been experiencing an incredible amount of construction over the last few years, especially for new hotels. Today, YIMBY has a look at 1225 Broadway, the future Virgin Hotel, which is being developed by the Lam Group. New images reveal that construction has now reached the tenth floor, surpassing the tower’s base, which will eventually create 100,000 square feet of retail space. The full footprint of the podium remains to be completed.
