Building applications have been filed for a substantial new development at 5102 4th Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood. The structure will stand eight stories tall, and span a total construction area of about 72,000 square feet. Within that, 42,233 square feet will be dedicated to residential space, and 12,442 square feet will be allotted for a new community facility, in this case, a library. The library will span the cellar, first, and second floors, while the residential portion will also begin on the second floor. The project’s 50 apartments will average about 840 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Magnusson Architecture and Planning is the architect, and HPD is the site’s developer.
In between the 4 train’s 176th Street stop and the B and D trains’ stop at 174-175th St Station, in the Bronx’s Mount Hope neighborhood, new building applications have been filed for a sizable project that will have a total construction area of almost 110,000 square feet. That will be divided between a community facility component of 8,479 square feet, to be used by a basketball court and gymnasium on the ground floor, and 88,996 square feet of residential space, to be split between 103 units. With an average unit size of about 850 square feet, rentals are likely. The structure will rise 14 floors in all, and Aufgang Architects is designing, while Procida Companies is the developer.
Hudson Yards has been making headlines in recent months thanks to the substantial progress of Related’s development over and surrounding the Eastern Railyards, which is now yielding a forest of skyscrapers. But immediately to the northwest, another tower that’s been in the making for an equally long period of time may have just received a boost to become the tallest of them all. A new rendering of the Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard has surfaced, showing both an updated design for the building itself, as well as the addition of a 300-foot spire, that would make the supertall the tallest in the neighborhood.
The A-train’s trek through Queens takes it along Liberty Avenue, right through Jamaica. Right down the block from the 111 St-Greenwood Avenue Station, new building applications have been filed for four separate mixed-use structures, which will rise in place of four existing two-story buildings.
