Pre-filing permits have been submitted for a 24-story mixed-use building at 41-05 29th Street in Long Island City, Queens. The site is at the heart of a burgeoning downtown area quickly establishing itself along Jackson Avenue, Northern Boulevard, and Queens Boulevard. SB Development Group is behind the project.
Chelsea has long been a center of creativity in Manhattan. Recent developments have been strongly inspired by that history. Many of the city’s most notable projects with distinctive architecture style have popped along the new High Line Park, including the Frank Gehry-design IAC Building, and Zaha Hadid’s 520 West 28th Street. The neighborhood’s latest impending icon is 76 Eleventh Avenue, a pair of twisting mixed-use towers under development by HFZ Capital. Construction is moving quickly for all components, and thanks to photos by Tectonic, we can see the latest progress.
A new look is out for the residential building rising up next to the historic Long Island City Clock Tower. The development, rising at 29-37 41st Avenue, is expected to have the distinction as the Borough’s tallest building, bringing with it a new retail center, plenty of tenant amenities, and half an acre of public park space at its base. The building is located just a block away from the Queens Plaza subway station, an intersection with the E, M, and R trains. The 7, N, and W trains can be accessed two blocks away. The project is positioned to become a focal point of Queens’ rising downtown district in Long Island City, and the Durst Organization is responsible for development.
Today YIMBY has the reveal for the 12-story mixed-use building coming to 20 Spencer Street, formerly known as 18 Spencer Street, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, right on the border with Williamsburg. The site is six blocks away from the Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the G trains. The Loketch Group is responsible for the development.
Another day, another building set to pop up in Brooklyn’s hippest neighborhood. Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use structure at 340 Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site, comes five blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue subway station, serviced by the G and L trains. This, of course, comes as part of the wave of new development in one of Brooklyn’s most notable neighborhoods. The project would be a door away from a recently built fire station for the FDNY designed by Michielli + Wyetzner Architects. Mortar Architecture + Development will be responsible for both developing and designing.
