It has been less than four years since permits were filed for 1059 Third Avenue, but thanks to Tectonic we can see the tower has now risen 21 floors above the Upper East Side, on the way to its 30-story pinnacle. The project is one of several new high-rises coming to the neighborhood. Real Estate Inverland and Third Palm Capital are responsible for the development. The site was purchased for $40 million in 2012, costing just over $330 per buildable square foot.
New permits have been filed for a four-story mixed-use building at 717 Sutter Avenue in East New York, Brooklyn.

Too many renderings come through that resemble the same mold of international style. Today, Citiscape Consulting has revealed an unusual design for a long-term care facility at 1508 Avenue Z in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Today YIMBY has the exclusive reveal for yet another major new development coming to Astoria, in Queens, showcasing design by Aufgang Architects. The depiction shows the building’s façade along 30th Street. Concrete panels will be installed in a rectilinear pattern likened to a minimalist refinement of row houses, which projects the sheer scale of the city block-sized structure. The site is just ten blocks away from the Astoria Boulevard subway station, serviced by the N and W trains.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 1699 Topping Avenue, in Claremont, The Bronx.

Yaniv Levy is behind the applications.
