New York City’s various media publications have been reporting on the worsening transit crisis with increasing frequency, and as the headlines make clear, the state of the subway is bleak. But combining what’s already-happening with what’s impending begs the question no one seems to be asking. In a city where subterranean infrastructure is already decaying quite rapidly, when will rising tides of increasing frequency result in a transition away from underground transit?
Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood has seen substantial revitalization over the past decade, and another empty lot will soon add to the continued improvements at 722-733 Myrtle Avenue, on the corner of Sanford Street. There, JMS Realty Corporation is planning an eight-story mixed-use development, which is part of a larger rezoning application including several nearby sites.
Flushing has been booming with new developments, as demand for more space in New York City’s largest Chinatown has continued to increase. Today, YIMBY has the first renderings of another project coming to the neighborhood, at 135-01 35th Avenue, where Stenmax Realty Inc. is planning an eight-story mixed-use building.
Yesterday, YIMBY reported on the first renderings to surface for the site at 540-544 Hudson Street, at the corner of Hudson and Charles in the West Village. Today, we have a look at another project a few dozen blocks to the south, at 50 Hudson Street. The site is located in Tribeca on the corner of Thomas Street, and the impending vertical addition will also have to receive Landmarks approval before construction can begin.
While the red tape choking most of the West Village has given most blocks over to some form of perceived permanence, small spaces for new developments still exist here and there. One such spot is located on the corner of Hudson and Charles Streets, spanning 540-544 Hudson, where designs for a new building by Morris Adjmi Architects are now awaiting approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
