A new 21-story high-rise is expected to come to Jamaica, as reported by YIMBY yesterday. This is not uncommon for the Queens neighborhood, but 153-19 Jamaica Avenue will be different, and today we have the first renderings for the building. BFC Partners has told YIMBY that all 139 units of the project will let at affordable housing rates. The facilities will also include supportive facilities, managed by New Destiny Housing.
A new design is out for the six-story building coming to 3 East 3rd Street, just around the corner from New York’s historic Bowery, the oldest thoroughfare still in use on Manhattan. The corridor has been subject to a recent revival thanks to steady redevelopment with emphasis on the area’s cultural significance over the past few decades.
Permits have been filed for a 21-story mixed-use high-rise at 153-19 Jamaica Avenue, in Jamaica, Queens. The neighborhood has seen a spike in new development since the city announced an action plan to stimulate the local economy. The site is two blocks away from the Jamaica Center subway station, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. Brooklyn-based BFC Partners will be responsible for the development. The firm is most notable for being part of the joint ventures responsible for the redevelopment of the Bedford Union Armory and Essex Crossing.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use development at 41-34 45th Street in Sunnyside, Queens. The site is four blocks away from the 46th Street subway station, serviced by the 7 trains. Owner Juan Rodriguez is listed as behind the applications.
Construction is imminent on a new twelve-story mixed-use building at 38-01 Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside, Queens, and today YIMBY has the first renderings for the project. SBLM Architects is responsible for designing the building, dubbed The Sunnyside. The façade has a mix of curtain wall and steel paneling throughout, employing a blend of various architectural styles.
