Developer Boris Aronov has received the green light to demolish the five-story, seven-unit mixed-use building at 41 West 47th Street and the seven-story commercial building at 43 West 47th Street, in Midtown. No new building applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings, nor has the developer disclosed their plans for the site, DNAinfo reports. As is, the two-property development assemblage could accommodate up to 60,240 square feet of mixed-use development. A future development could include up to 50,200 square feet of residential space with a commercial component, or could take the form of a hotel or office building. Before the structures can be demolished, multiple commercial-retail tenants, in addition to possibly multiple residential tenants, must vacant the properties.
Nissan Cohen, doing business as an anonymous Bronx-based LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit mixed-use building at 2160 Powell Avenue, in Unionport, located five blocks south of the Castle Hill Avenue stop on the 6 train. The structure, to rise on a triangular plot bound by Powell Avenue and the Cross Bronx Expressway, will measure 4,985 square feet. The first two floors will host 3,197 square feet of commercial-retail space, and the top floor will contain two apartments, averaging 894 square feet apiece. Queens-based Gerald J. Caliendo is the architect of record. The 3,271-square-foot lot is currently vacant.
Back in November of 2015, renderings were revealed of the planned 15-story, 99-unit mixed-use building planned at 42-20 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Now, excavation is ongoing at the site, The Court Square Blog reports. It was previously reported the project would rise 18 stories and contain 195 rental apartments, but filings were never updated to reflect those figures; they still detail a 15-story, 99-unit project. The structure will encompass 141,077 square feet, of which 20,304 square feet will be designated for ground-floor retail. The residential units should average 1,160 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include a 573-square-foot bicycle storage room, private residential storage, and an inner courtyard. Rabsky Group is the developer, with ODA New York behind the design. Completion is expected in spring 2018, per on-site signage.
Back in February, the foundation was being poured for the 12-story, 75-unit mixed-use building under development at 69 East 125th Street, in East Harlem. Now, the project is seven stories above street level and rising, Harlem+Bespoke reports. Once complete, the 80,619-square-foot building will feature 5,643 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units, averaging a rental-sized 767 square feet apiece, will fill the rest of the building. Fifteen of the apartments will rent at below-market rates through the housing lottery. As reported previously, amenities include a 15-car garage in the cellar, bike storage, a laundry, private residential storage, a fitness center, and a rooftop terrace. Greystone Property Development is the developer and Kutnicki Bernstein Architects is the architect. Completion is expected in early 2017.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 45-story, 415-unit mixed-use building at 29-26 Northern Boulevard (a.k.a. 29-22 & 29-32 Northern Boulevard), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Excavation began in the summer of 2015 and foundation work is now well underway, The Court Square Blog reports. The project has also seen slight revisions to its design. The latest filings detail a 43-story, 500,302-square-foot mixed-use tower that will stand 481 feet above street level. There will be 11,372 square feet spread across parts of the cellar, ground, and second floors. The project’s 467 residential units will be located on the second through 41st floors, averaging a rental-sized 791 square feet apiece.
