When the old Bancroft Bank Building met the wrecking ball a few years ago, the site, at 3 West 29th Street, was tentatively planned to give rise to a residential tower designed by Moshe Safdie. In September of 2017, that changed, when HFZ Capital filed plans for a Bjarke Ingels-designed office skyscraper, as reported by YIMBY. Now, we have the exclusive reveal for the first renderings of the new building, which will apparently be even more prominent on the skyline than originally planned.
Construction is currently underway for the four-story residential building coming to 157 Beach 96th Street, in the Seaside neighborhood of Rockaway Beach, Queens. High-density middle-income buildings dominate the area. The site is six blocks away from the Beach 98th Street subway station, serviced by the A and S trains. An anonymous LLC is listed as responsible for the development, and today, YIMBY has the first renderings of what it will soon look like.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-use building at 1230 Prospect Avenue, in Foxhurst, The Bronx. The site is seven blocks away from the Freeman Street subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. Badaly Architects is responsible for the design. The development will also be just two blocks away from another project by the firm, at 872 Home Street.
Permits have been filed for a two-story residential building at 173 Marine Street, in City Island, The Bronx. The island houses a population of roughly 4,400 people, located in the western end of the Long Island Sound. The project will be built in conjunction with 174 Marine Street, covered by YIMBY last week. The structures will fill up a large plot of land at the end of Marine Street, most of which is obscured from Google Street view by greenery. Cosmo Marfione of Newbanks Inc. is listed as responsible for the development.
Permits have been approved, and a rendering revealed for the five-story residential building coming to 755 Park Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is five blocks away from the Flushing Avenue subway station, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains, with an identically named station six blocks away granting access to the G train. Ben Monico LLC is responsible for the development.
