YIMBY first reported on new building permits for 1681 Third Avenue last November, when Extell filed a new job application for the site, located between East 94th and 95th Streets on the Upper East Side. We now have the reveal for the condominium tower coming to the lot, which is substantially taller than the 23-story building indicated in the first DOB filings.
Prolific Brooklyn condo developer Hello Living unveiled their plans last year for eight townhouses at Underhill Avenue and Pacific Street in Prospect Heights, and now YIMBY has the first glimpse of what the interiors will look like.
Long Island City’s mixed-use zoning has produced high rises filled with apartments and office space, as well as plenty of smaller residential buildings with ground-floor commercial space, but now the industrial neighborhood might get its first crop of new townhouses in half a century. Plans were filed on Friday for 12 two-family townhouses at 45-35 11th Street, a couple blocks from the Court Square subway stop.
Henry Ausch has filed applications for four multi-family buildings, each rising four stories, at 1746 Linden Boulevard and 713-715 Snediker Avenue in East New York, a block away from the New Lots Avenue subway stop on the L line. The same developer filed for 67 residential units on the same block in March. The all-residential development will total 32 units and 22,520 square feet, and Karl Fischer is designing. An existing warehouse must first be removed.
YIMBY used the city’s Open Data portal to map the last five years of 311 complaints about illegal conversions, and the numbers illustrate what longtime New Yorkers already know: the majority of illegal apartments occupy homes in densely populated, working class areas with growing numbers of recent immigrants.
