Back in February, YIMBY reported on filings for a new residential building at 1893 Crotona Avenue, in The Bronx’s Tremont neighborhood. Now, we have the first look at another new project coming to the same block, at 1899 Crotona Avenue, designed by Badaly Architects, and under development by Paul Gjonaj.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 135 Frost Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is six blocks away from the Graham Avenue subway station, serviced by the L trains. Frost Terrace LLC will be responsible for the development.
One of the more interesting new designs coming to Manhattan will be at 50 West 66th Street, where Extell will soon be adding yet another punctuation mark to the city’s skyline. The site is just six blocks away from Columbus Circle, and down the block from Central Park. The building was last on our radar in late 2017, with the news that the project would dramatically increase in size to become the tallest tower on the Upper West Side, taking away the title from 200 Amsterdam Avenue before it could even begin rising. Now, demolition has officially begun on the assemblage’s last structural occupant, while excavation continues apace across the land that has already been cleared.
Following a crucial vote by The New York City Council Committee on Land Use, a massive redevelopment proposal for the long-vacant Spofford Juvenile Detention Center in the the South Bronx will officially move forward. The project is expected to have transformative effects on the surrounding Hunts Point neighborhood, and is the latest component of the city’s multi-billion dollar initiative to rejuvenate the South Bronx.
Permits were filed during late January for a nine-story mixed-use building at 132-27 41st Road in Flushing, Queens. Today, YIMBY has a first look at the design of “Century Tower”, thanks to the developers, NY Excelsior Development. The renderings show a clean minimalist façade with fourteen balconies, and two outdoor terraces on the rooftop, divided by a brick wall. The façade will be composed of traditional brick, with terracotta feature panels covering a fifth of the building’s front. The ground floor will have aluminum frames around separate entrances for residents and the medical offices.
