In December, foundation work began on the 50-story, 974-unit mixed-use building planned at 43-25 Hunter Street, in Long Island City’s Court Square. Rebar and concrete have now reached the second story of the 786,105 square-foot building, which will feature 18,800 square feet of retail, according to The Court Square Blog. Rockrose is developing, and SLCE is the architect. YIMBY revealed renderings in 2014, and completion is scheduled for the middle of 2017.
Last summer, YIMBY brought you renderings of 215 Chrystie Street, a 28-story, 370-hotel-room mixed-use tower now under construction on the Lower East Side.

Completion is scheduled for late 2016.
The Olnick Organization has filed pre-applications with the city, beginning the ULURP process that would rezone Lenox Terrace, a tower-in-the-park development bound by West 132nd and 135th Streets, and Malcolm X Boulevard and 5th Avenue in central Harlem. According to DNAinfo, the complex has six 17-story towers, which make up 1,700 residential units, and nearly 96,600 square feet of commercial space is located within perimeter low-rise buildings.
World Wide Group has placed an assemblage of buildings, spanning 143-161 East 60th Street, in Midtown East, on the market as a development site for what is being valued north of $300 million, according to Crain’s Business. Six buildings are included in the assemblage, most being townhouses in the four- and five-story range, but an 11-story building exists at No. 155. A 280,000 square-foot residential and retail building could be built, but the tower could be even larger if a developer chooses to satisfy the inclusionary housing bonus.
