Elmhurst-based Advanced Properties has filed applications for a four-story, 7,760-square-foot medical office building at 37-12 92nd Street, on the southern side of Jackson Heights. The project will contain 6,000 square feet of medical space for doctors’ offices across the cellar through fourth floors. There will also be two off-street parking spaces. Frank Petruso’s Great Neck, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 30-foot-wide, 3,000-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in February. The 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue stop on the 7 train is two blocks away.
Excavation work is nearly complete and construction has started on the foundation of the planned 63-story, 124-unit mixed-use building at 138 East 50th Street, in Midtown East. The latest photo was captured by YIMBY Forums user ILNY/NY Construction Photography. The most recent building permits indicate the project will rise 803 feet above street level and measure 253,222 square feet. There will be 4,588 square feet of retail space across the cellar and ground floors. The residential units, condominiums, should average 1,706 square feet apiece. The number of units listed on permits, 124, is up quite a bit from what YIMBY reported a year ago, 91, when renderings were revealed. Ceruzzi Properties is the developer and Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects is the design architect. SLCE Architects is the architect of record. Completion in 2018 is probable.
Yesterday, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, five-unit mixed-use building at 3 East 3rd Street, located on the western end of the East Village. Real Estate Weekly managed to get their hands on a rendering of the project, which is to be developed by Brooklyn-based Barrett Design. Alex Barrett, the firm’s architect, is designing the project in-house. The project will include a 3,135-square-foot retail condo spanning three levels, including the ground floor. Above that, there will be four full-floor condominiums and a duplex penthouse. The developer has secured $6.9 million in financing for the acquisition of the site. A three-story commercial building must first be demolished.
On March 8, the East New York Savings Bank, Parkway Branch, in East New York, Brooklyn was designated the first city landmark of 2016. That same day, the former Empire State Dairy Company complex, also in East New York, was added to the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s calendar. On Tuesday, the designation process continued.
New York City’s hospitals are struggling. St. Vincent’s Hospital in the West Village shut its doors in 2010 and sold most of its property to condo developers. Beth Israel Hospital is planning to close and sell off some of its buildings in the East Village, eventually demolishing the 825-bed hospital and developing a newer, smaller facility.
