Late last year, Century Development Group signed an agreement with Starwood Hotels & Resorts to bring a 250-key Westin hotel to the mixed-use project planned at 137-61 Northern Boulevard, located on the corner of Leavitt Street in downtown Flushing. Century told The Real Deal that the latest development plans call for a 12- or 13-story building, which, in addition to the hotel, would also include 50 residential units.
The White Plains Common Council has approved plans for a five-story, 62-unit mixed-use building at 136-158 Westmoreland Avenue, just south of downtown White Plains, in Westchester County. The project, dubbed Westmoreland Lofts, will measure 58,000 square feet, Westfair reported. It will include a 97-car parking garage, 2,700 square feet of light manufacturing space and 1,600 square feet of retail space on the ground floor for a microbrewery. The apartments above will be rentals, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms.
A rendering has been revealed of a two-towered project planned at 177 Grand Street, located in the Paulus Hook section of downtown Jersey City. Plans presented to the Historic Paulus Hook Association last week call for a 22-story building along Grand Street and a 16-story building along Sussex Street. There will be between 275 and 300 market-rate rental apartments, in addition to retail space and a 150-car parking garage.
It was nearly seven months ago that the Landmarks Preservation Commission first heard a proposal to construct a six-story apartment building where a two-story garage building currently sits in the West Village. That process was met with opposition from the public and failed to gain approval from the LPC. The process for deciding the future of 11-19 Jane Street continued on Tuesday, but again with no resolution.
Construction is now five stories above street level on the 42-story, 556-unit mixed-use tower under development at 685 First Avenue, located between East 39th and 40th streets in Murray Hill. Progress on the structure can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 813,813 square feet and rise 460 feet in height.
