Macerich Company, the owner of Green Acres Mall, in Valley Stream, recently broke ground on a two-story, 335,000 square-foot retail complex adjacent to their mall at 750 Sunrise Highway, one block east of the Queens border. According to LI Herald, the shopping center is being dubbed Green Acres Commons, and Ashley Furniture HomeStore, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Burlington Coat Factory, Dick’s Sporting Goods, as well as other tenants, are expected to lease spaces when it opens in the fall of 2016.
YIMBY has closely followed the construction of the 21-story, 183-key hotel underway at 55 Wythe Avenue, in Williamsburg, and now Brownstoner has news of the project’s topping out. Dubbed The William Vale, Zelig Weiss and Riverside Developers are developing, and Aldo Liberis is designing. A duplex presidential suite will occupy the top two stories, and 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space will span the ground floor. Glass façade is now also being installed on the lower half of the structure, and opening is expected in the spring of 2016.
The lovely 19th century building at the corner of Prince and Mott Streets in Nolita has been an orphanage, a school, and a convent, but now a developer has begun transforming the landmarked structure into condos. Today, YIMBY has a new rendering of the structure’s restored facade, as well as a series of images based on historic photographs of the property at 34 Prince Street.
The Landmarks-approved condo project rising at 130 Seventh Avenue South in the West Village has a teaser site, a new address, and a new rendering. Now, the seven-story development between West 9th and 10th Streets will be known as 175 West 10th Street.
Michael Paul Enterprises has filed applications to combine and enlarge two four-story townhouses at 163-165 East 62nd Street, on the Upper East Side. The expanded building will gain two stories, and will stand six stories and 60 feet to the roof. Five residential units will spread across 11,654 square feet, which translates into average units of 2,331 square feet, indicative of condos. Thomas Vail’s Vail Associates Architects is the applicant of record.
