The property comprises eight single-story commercial buildings and 731 accessory off-street parking spaces.
Construction has topped out on 141 East Houston Street, a ten-story mixed-use office building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Roger Ferris + Partners and developed by East End Capital and K Property Group, the 68,000-square-foot structure will yield office space as well as retail on the ground floor and two cellar levels. The property is located between Forsyth Street to the west and Eldridge Street to the east on a plot that was formerly occupied by the Sunshine Cinema.
Excavation has begun at 27-19 Thomson Avenue, the site of a ten-story, 30-unit building in Long Island City, Queens.

The 116-foot-tall structure will rise from a 3,600-square-foot plot bound by Thomson Avenue to the south and 44th Drive to the northeast that was purchased for $6.85 million in 2018. Demolition of the site’s former low-rise occupant concluded in early 2019.
