With so many new residential buildings on the rise in Williamsburg, it’s easy to forget about office development in the neighborhood. But that’s exactly what’s in store for 107 North 1st Street. The project will create 18,000 square feet of office space by integrating modern amenities into a historic brick building. The Melamed Architects-designed revamp will also bring a retail tenant into the first two floors.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story mixed-use building at 161-11 132nd Avenue, in Rochdale, Queens. The site is about a mile away from the Locus Manor train station, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. Fifth Avenue Community will be responsible for the development. The organization is dedicated to creating affordable housing, educating, advocacy, and workforce development.
Permits have been filed for a three-story community facility building at 104-19 Roosevelt Avenue, in North Corona, Queens. Corona borders the Citi Field baseball stadium, and is also near Flushing Bay promenade overlooking LaGuardia Airport. The site is just a block away from the 103rd Street-Corona Plaza subway station, serviced by the 7 train. Make the Road NY will be responsible for development, and the business promotes equal rights and economic and political opportunity for immigrants in New York.
The official Census guesswork for 2017 has now been released, showing a gain of 7,272 individuals across the Five Boroughs, and a drop of over 2,000 people in Brooklyn. While the actual Census in 2010 was decried as leaving hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers missing from the count, it seems that whoever was behind the calculations for 2017 may have been even more incompetent, with changes to the borough-by-borough tallies painting a picture that makes no sense whatsoever.
Bedford-Stuyvesant continues to see an influx of new development filling in its urban gaps, and adding new residential to the area. One such project is 165 Malcolm X Boulevard. The six-story residential building will rise just eight blocks away from the Gates Avenue subway station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. An anonymous LLC is responsible for the development.
