The Port Authority has been struggling for years to develop two awkward lots next to the Lincoln Tunnel approach on the far West Side. The agency filed plans for a nine-story building at 431 West 33rd Street last fall, and now they’ve posted a rendering on the fence at the site between Ninth and 10th avenues.
It’s been nearly a year since we checked in on Related’s rental development at 261 Hudson Street, and a lot has happened since then. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that façade work on the 12-story project is nearly complete.
Most new construction in Downtown Brooklyn easily falls into the category of “megaproject,” from the residential towers and mall of City Point to John Catsimatidis’ 32-story residential development at 86 Fleet Place. But every once in a while, someone files a somewhat reasonably sized building on a small lot there. Yesterday’s crop of filings brought a new building application for a skinny, 11-story residential development at 112 Fleet Place.
Back in December of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 86-key hotel at 4729 Third Avenue, in Belmont, located two blocks south of the Metro-North Railroad’s Fordham station. Now, Michael Kang’s Flushing-based architecture firm has revealed colored schematic drawings of the project. It can also be revealed that InterContinental Hotels Group will be the hotel operator and is planning a Holiday Inn Express. The structure, which will rise on a 6,229-square-foot triangular lot, will encompass 43,789 square feet. Guest amenities will include laundry facilities, a fitness center, a business center with meeting rooms, a breakfast area, luggage storage, and parking for four bikes. Syosset, N.Y.-based Neelam Chadha is the developer. The property is currently occupied by a small single-story warehouse, and demolition permits were filed in December.
Brooklyn-based CS Real Estate Group has filed applications for three four-story, six-unit residential buildings at 113-123 Clifton Place, in western Bedford-Stuyvesant, located around the block from the Classon Avenue stop on the G train. The development will likely read like townhouses, as each building will actually be split into two 20-foot-wide sections, with three units in each “townhouse.” All of the townhouse sections will have similar configurations, with one unit located on the ground and cellar levels, another unit located on the second floor and part of the third floor, and the final unit hosted on the rest of the third floor and the entire fourth floor. The residential space varies between each building, but an average unit across the whole development should cover 1,027 square feet, indicative of condominiums. Karl Fischer is the architect of record. The 120-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story commercial building and a low-slung warehouse. Permits were field last year to demolish the structures.
