One of the last lots to be spoken for near Queensboro Plaza is becoming a nine-story residential building. The project would replace a small two-story brick office building at 41-14 27th Street, between 41st Avenue and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.
The Ishay Group is planning to convert and expand the vacant four-story, 17,700-square-foot commercial building at 3464 John F. Kennedy Boulevard, located on the corner of Charles Street in The Heights section of Jersey City, N.J. The project, dubbed The Studebaker Lofts, includes expanding the structure vertically by a single floor, Jersey Digs reported. The final product will feature 14 residential units and 2,350 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment approved the plans in April 2015. A construction timeline has not been released.
A rendering has been posted on-site of the planned mixed-use project under development at 8-16 Nevins Street and 299-301 Livingston Street, in Downtown Brooklyn.
Construction has topped out on the 43-story, 376-unit mixed-use tower, dubbed Ellipse, at 1-25 14th Street, located in the Newport section of Jersey City, N.J. The structure, which is now receiving glass installation on its 27th floor, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The 592,800-square-foot tower’s apartments will be rentals, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms. There will be 24,000 square feet of amenities, as well as a retail component near street level. The LeFrak Organization is the developer. Arquitectonica is the design architect and Haines, Lundberg & Waehler (HLW) is the executive architect. Completion is expected later this year.
A massive residential development is poised to reshape a sleepy stretch of industrial waterfront in Rosebank, along the eastern shore of Staten Island. YIMBY has the first look at the complex, which will stretch across three buildings and 18 acres at 125 Edgewater Street.
