A few weeks ago, YIMBY featured a fresh rendering for the Moinian Group’s 3 Hudson Boulevard, which is set to rise on the northeast corner of 34th Street and 11th Avenue. Now, new images of the supertall have been released, and while they paint a clearer picture of what the tower itself will look like, clues left by Photoshop indicate that there still may be a surprise at the very top of the FXFOWLE-designed structure.
Applications for alterations to an existing four-story building at 624 East 9th Street flew under the radar late last year, when permits for interior modifications were filed with the Department of Buildings. But beyond the revamp to the insides, the structure, located in Alphabet City, is actually going to receive a complete redo of its exterior as well, as YIMBY can now reveal.
Brooklyn’s DUMBO neighborhood has been mostly built out for several years now, but within the dense blocks to the west of the Manhattan Bridge overpass, there are still several remaining opportunities. New building applications have now been filed for the vacant lot at 85 Jay Street, which will have a total construction area of 875,505 square feet. Within that, there will be a 1,154 square-foot community facility, 60,017 square feet of commercial space, and 812,978 square feet of residential space, to be divided amongst 737 units. That would normally indicate apartments, but at an average size of over 1,100 square feet, condominiums would also seem possible. Morris Adjmi will be designing the 21-story and 250-foot-tall project, and Kushner Companies will be developing, having acquired the site alongside the Jehovah’s Witness Headquarters at 25-30 Columbia Street for $700 million last year.
New building applications have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use project at 370 East 158th Street, in The Bronx’s Melrose neighborhood. The site is currently occupied by a dilapidated three-family home, for which demolition permits were pulled last November. The new occupant will contain a 2,082 square-foot community facility on the first floor, topped by 8,458 square feet of residential space up above, which will be divided amongst 12 units, for a rental-sized average of just over 700 square feet. Ling Li of Li Architect Associate, PLLC, is the architect of record, and Nasser Rachid is the site’s developer.
Astoria usually sees residential or minimally mixed-use development, but today, YIMBY has news for a new hotel coming to the neighborhood, immediately adjacent to the 30th Avenue stop on the N and W lines. The new building will rise at 30-17 31st Street, on a lot that is currently vacant, with a design by T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects. There will be 5,544 square feet of community facility space on the first two floors, containing an ambulatory facility, as well as 13,529 square feet of commercial space, to be divided between a retail component on the ground floor, and 48 hotel rooms on levels three through nine. Antonio Mourtil of “Anton Developer of Forest Hills” is listed as the developer.
