Zand Development LLC has filed permits for a mixed-use high-rise at 29-00 Northern Boulevard, in Long Island City, Queens. The project is on Jackson Avenue, and would add further to the area’s rapidly Manhattanizing skyline. The site is a block away from the Queens Plaza Subway Station, serviced by the E, M, and R station. The Queensboro Plaza Subway Station is five blocks west of the address, and is serviced by the 7, N, and W trains.
It’s no longer just a rendering; the 54-story Eagle Electric Factory’s redevelopment at 43-22 Queens Street almost has its full façade, as construction nears the finish line. YIMBY last reported on the project one year ago, when construction had reached the 18th floor. Now, the tower isn’t far off from releasing its 790 new rental apartments, which average 763 square feet apiece. Rockrose Development is responsible for development.
Renderings for a new six-story affordable-housing project have been revealed at 960 Simpson Street, in The Bronx’s Hunts Point neighborhood. YIMBY last reported on the development in February of 2016. The site is just a block away from the Simpson Street Subway Station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. The lot is located within a small commercial center, spreading over four blocks. Properties Resources Corporation will be responsible for the development.
Renderings reveal updated design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects of 300 Kenmore Road in the landmark neighborhood of Douglaston, Queens. YIMBY reported on the project proposal in January of this year. The project replaces a two-story garage building that was converted to an apartment. Douglaston is an upper-middle-class residential neighborhood recognized as an NYC Historic District in 2004.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for renderings of 76-28 Parsons Boulevard, in Flushing, Queens. The design, by Tan Architects, shows a low-rise residential structure with sixteen balconies, and evidence of a public terrace on the rooftop. The façade is defined by the balconies and several bands of brown, black, grey, and limestone.
