Permits have been filed for a three-story mixed-use building at 21-01 21st Street in Astoria, Queens. Located between 21st Avenue and 21st Road, the corner development site is three blocks east of the Ralph Demarco Park along the East River. The closest transit access is the Ditmas Boulevard Station in the neighborhood, serviced by the W train. D.A. Development Group is behind the applications.
New images have been revealed for the future of 257 Washington Avenue, in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill. The revised design, which will go before the LPC later today, will take the site which was formerly St. Luke’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, and convert it into eight townhomes. Plans show the main structure will feature four larger units, with another four spread inside a connected three-story building at the back of the lot.
Today, YIMBY has the reveal for OPerA Studio’s Prospect Heights townhouse, including renderings and project details. The project is currently under construction, with site prep, partial demolition, and pile work having now begun.
Fortis Property Group will spend the next year or two haggling with the city and the Cobble Hill community over its plan to build towers as tall as 40 stories on the former Long Island College Hospital campus. But in the meantime, the developer is moving forward with smaller pieces of the project, by filing plans for a new crop of townhouses at 88 Amity Street, between Henry and Hicks Streets.
Much like City Island, Throgs Neck and its traditionally middle class Irish and Italian community resisted the abandonment and disinvestment that swept across the Bronx in the ’70s and ’80s. And even as property values have risen in the southeastern Bronx neighborhood, a 2004 rezoning has stunted most new construction. But one developer has found a way to make the restrictive zoning work for him and filed plans for five new townhouses at 2626-2634 Miles Avenue.
