Great Neck, N.Y.-based Woodland Home Sales Corp. has filed applications for two three-story, two-unit residential buildings at 108-46 – 108-48 37th Drive, in North Corona. The structures will each measure 5,945 square feet each and their residential units should average a family-sized 2,230 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. There will be a total of four off-street parking spaces. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 64-foot-wide, 8,124-square-foot plot is currently vacant. The 111th Street on the 7 train is three blocks away.
The last time YIMBY checked out the progress at Long Island City’s Hyatt Place hotel at the end of April, the building was approaching its final floor. Since then, the structure has both topped-out and been enclosed within its curtain wall. The future 108-room hotel, developed by Prakash Patel and designed by Michael Kang Architect, looks ready to receive its exterior cladding.
YIMBY can barely keep up with all the new construction in western Astoria, where investors have started snapping up parking lots, row houses, and warehouses left and right. Today, we have a look at the eight-story rental building headed to 23-23 Astoria Boulevard, between Crescent and 23rd streets.
The 12-story, 194-unit residential building under construction at 11-39 49th Avenue, located on the corner of 21st Street in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City, is now seven stories above street level, according to The Court Square Blog. The latest building permits indicate the project will encompass 131,854 square feet. The residential units, averaging 677 square feet apiece, will be rental apartments and twenty percent of them (39 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. The Criterion Group is the developer and Aufgang Architects is behind the architecture. Completion is expected in late 2018, according to signage, although it appears work is ahead of schedule.
It was revealed in March that plans for a commercial-retail complex at 90-02 168th Street, in downtown Jamaica, had been abandoned, and that the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC) would be releasing an updated request for proposals (RFP) for the site. An updated RFP is now available, DNAinfo reported. The GJDC is seeking a team to build a mixed-use project that would include roughly 75,000 square feet of retail space and at least 250 residential units. Between 10 to 20 percent of the apartments would be set aside for artists. A larger portion, which includes some (or possibly all) of the artists’ units, will be designated as affordable, renting at below-market rates through a lottery. Overall, the vacant, 99,500-square-foot site could accommodate up to 497,500 square feet of mixed-use development. Applications for the RFP are due December 2nd, and the project should be complete by 2019.
