The redevelopment of Macy’s former footprint in Downtown Brooklyn is set to add a major new skyscraper to the Borough’s skyline. Renderings for 11 Hoyt Street are out, and it’s looking to make an impression. The 51-story condominium building is designed by the architecture and urban design firm Studio Gang, led by MacArthur Fellow Jeanne Gang. This project will be the Chicago-based firm’s first residential building in New York City.
The 29,000 square foot lot at 69-02 Queens Boulevard, in Elmhurst, Queens, is getting closer to the construction of a major new building. YIMBY last covered the project two years ago, after developers Madison Realty Capital purchased the first portion of the assemblage for $14.75 million. The firm has now submitted a proposal to the Department of City Planning to build two new structures, rising up 14 and 17 floors. This action would require the rezoning of several industrial lots.
Permits have been filed for a six-story, mixed-use hotel at 38-23 28th Street, on the northern edge of Long Island City, Queens. The new development sits squarely between 38th and 39th Avenues, just a couple blocks from RT 25A / Northern Boulevard.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building to rise at 93-13 112th Street, in the Richmond Hill section of Queens. The residential neighborhood is recognized for having significant numbers of preserved Queen Anne and Victorian structures. The site is around the corner from Atlantic Avenue, which connects Jamaica with downtown Brooklyn. Six blocks away is the 111th Street subway station, serviced by the J trains. Gorden Tan is listed as responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed for a new four-story residential building at 89-28 138th Place, in Jamaica, Queens. The development is just half a block away from the Jamaica Avenue commercial thoroughfare, and six blocks away from the avenue’s major intersection with Sutphin Boulevard. That intersection is two blocks away from the Sutphin Boulevard subway station, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. The Jamaica train station is one block further, serviced by the Long Island Railroad. All this culminates in a transit-rich area for future tenants. ASM Development is behind the applications.
