Studio V — the master planner behind the mixed-use and multi-building developments Astoria Cove and Hallets Point, in western Astoria — is conceptualizing plans for adjacent separately owned development sites at 2-15 and 3-15 26th Avenue. According to Crain’s, the plans are preliminary, but would similarly mirror the neighboring approved mixed-use developments, possibly rising above 30 stories. The properties must first be rezoned through ULURP, and existing low-rise warehouse structures would have to be demolished.
Just as BRP Companies gets ready to start construction on its big, mixed-use project, The Crossing at Jamaica Station, Able Management is working on plans for a 27-story Hilton Garden Inn at 93-43 Sutphin Boulevard, across the street from the Jamaica AirTrain and LIRR station. Now YIMBY has a new rendering for the Hilton, first revealed by DNAinfo last fall.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on job applications for the 1,789-unit mixed-use development planned at 28-10 Jackson Avenue, in Long Island City. Now, The Court Square Blog reports foundation work has begun; Tishman Speyer and H&R Real Estate Investment Trust are developing, and the project includes 53-, 44-, and 33-story towers, with a combined total of 15,500 square feet of ground-floor retail. Completion is expected in June 2018, per signage, and Goldstein Hill & West is the architect of record.
Flushing-based Sheng Hui Realty has filed applications for three identical three-story residential buildings spanning the lots 42-34 – 42-38 Forley Street, in northern Elmhurst, five blocks from the 90th Street stop on the 7 train. The development will contain nine residential units — three in each building — across a total 9,245 square feet of residential space. Chang Hwa Tan is the architect of record, and two existing single-family homes were filed for demolition this past May.
Foundation work has started for yet another new high-rise on the site of the formerly-proposed “Star Tower,” in Long Island City, as reported by The Court Square Blog. YIMBY followed up on the initial report to find that the new building’s filing address has been changed to 27-17 42nd Road.
