This past summer, construction was wrapping up on Ranger Properties’ nine-story, 48-unit mixed-use building at 41-07 Crescent Street, in Long Island City, and now The Court Square Blog brings news the building is complete. As previously reported, the building contains 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, and Fogarty Finger is the architect. Scaffolding has been removed, meaning opening is likely imminent.
YIMBY revealed the final design towards the end of last year for the 28-story, 174-unit mixed-use tower planned at 520 West 30th Street, in Midtown West, and now the project is well underway. Related has landed $200 million in loans, according to Commercial Observer, and the building has been under construction since the summer, with foundation work now nearly complete. An 11,500 square-foot retail component will span the ground floor, and Ismael Leyva is the architect of record.
In May of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the mixed-use redevelopment of the dilapidated five-story former school building at 2269 First Avenue in the East Village, and now construction is underway, per Harlem+Bespoke. The existing 69,093 square foot building will be expanded by 25,000 square feet and four stories, and will contain 90 residential units and 3,995 square feet of ground-floor retail space once complete. Acuity Capital Partners is developing, and Issac & Stern Architects is designing.
Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Ozymandius Realty and Orange Management’s planned eight-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 75 First Avenue in the East Village. Now, the long-time owners are selling the site to Colonnade Group. The site allows for an eight-story, 35,000 square foot building with retail, but it’s not known whether the new developer intends to follow the previously filed plans. The previous owners began assembling the site in 2005, when a 14-story building could have been built, before the city downzoned the East Village in 2008, according to The Real Deal. NO Architecture designed the old proposal.
Since December 2013, YIMBY has revealed three different conceptual renderings of 50 Hudson Yards, Related Companies’ planned commercial (and residential?) development project between 10th Avenue and Hudson Boulevard, and West 33rd and 34th Street, in Midtown West. Today, Related has reached a deal with McDonalds to acquire the last property at the development site, according to Crain’s. McDonald’s plans to close before the end of the year, and demolition will subsequently commence on the existing properties. A 3.3 million square foot mixed-use building could be built, though a final design has not yet been revealed.
