The 29,000 square foot lot at 69-02 Queens Boulevard, in Elmhurst, Queens, is getting closer to the construction of a major new building. YIMBY last covered the project two years ago, after developers Madison Realty Capital purchased the first portion of the assemblage for $14.75 million. The firm has now submitted a proposal to the Department of City Planning to build two new structures, rising up 14 and 17 floors. This action would require the rezoning of several industrial lots.
Downtown Brooklyn has seen an incredible number of new residential buildings rise up in recent years, redefining the neighborhood and boosting its overall visibility relative to the rest of the Borough. Today, we have a look at a new kind of development for the area, featuring a fusion of design that will bring much-needed modern office space to the booming district.
The city of Newark is making slow but steady progress towards adding new urban infill, including large low-slung developments. One such example is 110 Edison Place, inside the city’s downtown area. Edison Properties purchased the building from North Caldwell-based Berkowitz Company for $7 million, allowing them to build nearly half a million square feet of new office space.
Last week, YIMBY was taken on a tour of 175 Greenwich Street, aka 3 World Trade Center, visiting the rooftop, the terrace, and the lobby. The building, located in the heart of the Financial District, has made incredible progress, with the façade now complete save for windows connected to the exterior hoist. Interior work is also approaching the finish line.
A new high-rise could be coming right next to the future supertall at 9 DeKalb Avenue. Permits have been filed for a 34-story residential building and parking garage at 61 DeKalb Avenue, on Long Island University’s campus in Downtown Brooklyn. The site is just a handful of blocks away from the A, B, C, D, G, Q, R, 2 3, 4, and 5 train, giving it near-immediate access to the rest of the city. Also in the neighborhood is NYU’s growing Brooklyn campus. LIU will be responsible for development.
