Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use development at 38 West 8th Street, one block away from Washington Square Park. The site is off the beaten path for Greenwich Village, and the extant structure is not of noteworthy or particular beauty. Despite this, the odds are high this project will attract undeserved criticism from local rent-gouging homeowners fearful of any increase in neighborhood housing supply. Joseph Straus of the Straus Group is listed as responsible for the development.
YIMBY has a first look at yet another new five-story commercial-office building coming to Williamsburg, at 96 North 10th Street, located right in the hustle and bustle of the flourishing neighborhood. The site is just a block away from East River State Park, with panoramic views of Manhattan, and Smorgasbord on Saturdays. The Bedford Avenue L stop is five blocks away. Acme will be responsible for the development.
A new 21-story high-rise is expected to come to Jamaica, as reported by YIMBY yesterday. This is not uncommon for the Queens neighborhood, but 153-19 Jamaica Avenue will be different, and today we have the first renderings for the building. BFC Partners has told YIMBY that all 139 units of the project will let at affordable housing rates. The facilities will also include supportive facilities, managed by New Destiny Housing.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 55-40 97th Place in Corona, Queens. The site is nine blocks away from the Woodhaven Boulevard subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. In the opposite direction is the expansive Flushing Meadows Corona Park, home to the Queens Museum, Zoo, a science center, and stadiums for tennis and baseball.
A new design is out for the six-story building coming to 3 East 3rd Street, just around the corner from New York’s historic Bowery, the oldest thoroughfare still in use on Manhattan. The corridor has been subject to a recent revival thanks to steady redevelopment with emphasis on the area’s cultural significance over the past few decades.
