Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 79 Powers Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is four blocks away from the Lorimer Street subway station, serviced by the L and G trains. The area is saturated with plenty of retail spots, as one might expect for the neighborhood. Developer Arik Bar-Chaim is behind the applications.
Just over a year ago, YIMBY reported that Related’s Fifteen Hudson Yards had reached its eighth floor. The tower had begun its upward journey to a marketing count of 88 levels, and now, it has officially reached its pinnacle, 910 feet above the streets down below.
Permits have been filed for a 46-story mixed-use high rise along Queens’ East River waterfront, overlooking Manhattan. The structure will rise at 52-41 Center Boulevard, in the Hunters Point neighborhood. The project is part of TF Cornerstone’s Hunters Point South Towers, and will be the shorter of two new skyscrapers.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 146-15 Northern Boulevard, in Murray Hill, Queens. The site is five blocks away from the Murray Hill train station, serviced by the Port Washington line of the LIRR. The Main Street Subway Station is also ten blocks away, the last stop in Queens for the 7 train. Fuzhou Development will be responsible for the project.
Of all the developments currently under construction in New York City, none have been in the making for longer than Essex Crossing, which is rising on the site of several long-vacant lots on the Lower East Side. With the master-plan’s first new buildings just about fully complete, YIMBY sat down with Charles Bendit of Taconic, and asked the co-CEO ten questions about the New York City real estate market.
