London-based Quadrum Global acquired the 179,000 square-foot development site at 53 Huron Street (a.k.a. 161 West Street), in Greenpoint, back in 2014 for $45.5 million. With the inclusionary housing bonus and an up-zoning, the site could accommodate a roughly 430,000 square-foot development, and Young Kim’s Queens-based Tan Architect has designed such a project. According to Brownstoner, the plans, which are currently on hold, sport 15- and 22-story residential towers with 516 total units. A sky bridge would connect the towers, and a multi-level podium would include parking, a terrace, and probably retail space. It’s not known when the developer will move forward with the project, which would require the demolition of a two-story warehouse.
Property owner Ruo Ruo Yang has filed applications for a seven-story, eight-unit residential building at 37-34 89th Street, in Jackson Heights, right around the corner from the 7 train’s stop at 90th Street and Elmhurst Avenue. The building will total 8,595 square feet, and units will average 1,074 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing, and permits were filed earlier this month to demolish an existing two-story home.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 23-unit mixed-use building at 97-30 64th Avenue, in Rego Park, two blocks from the subway stop at 63rd Drive on the M and R trains. Now, DNAinfo reports construction is underway, and a rendering has appeared at the site. The building will have condominiums, which will be on the smaller side, averaging 720 square feet. Community facility space will measure 4,000 square feet on the lower portion of the building. Rego Park-based Hang Chen, with CZK Realty LLC, are developing, and Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing.
In the summer of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a nine-story, 32-unit mixed-use building at 41-04 27th Street, in Long Island City, and now foundation work is underway, according to The Court Square Blog. The building will measure 24,987 square feet, and include 4,073 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Apartments will begin on the second floor and average 654 square feet each. A Rego Park-based LLC is developing, and Elmhurst-based Chang Hwa Tan is the architect of record.
In the final days of 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a four-story, nine-unit mixed-use project at 94-47 – 94-49 Alstyne Avenue, in eastern Elmhurst, but plans have changed now that a new developer is in control, Jian Yun Lui’s Forever Estate, LLC. New filings call for two multi-family residential buildings, each standing three stories and containing three units. The units will spread across 6,248 square feet of residential space, which translates into the average unit measuring 1,041 square feet. Chang Hwa Tan’s Tan Architect is the applicant of record, and permits were filed this past September to demolish the existing two-story house.
