Construction is now 15 stories above street level on the taller tower of the two-building, 1,115-unit mixed-use project at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, located in the Court Square section of Long Island City. Foundation work is underway on the shorter tower. The structure can be seen thanks to aerial photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the entire complex will encompass 1,209,884 square feet.
A five-story, 68-unit mixed-use building is planned at 1558 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, located between Custer and Gates avenues in the Greenville section of southern Jersey City.

Plans were approved by the Jersey City Planning Board and the Hudson County Planning Board in 2016. The 29,000-square-foot site is vacant. A construction timeline has not been disclosed.

Significant infrastructure work will also be done as part of the first phase, expected to be complete by 2019, Jersey Digs reported.
Just over a year ago, city officials and Knicks player Carmelo Anthony stood in the cavernous Bedford Union Armory in Crown Heights and announced plans to redevelop the historic structure into affordable housing, a recreation center, and condos.
