Jersey City’s ongoing development boom has chiefly been focused along the waterfront, but the tendrils of new construction have also started to wrap their way across increasingly distant swaths of the city, including 485 Marin Boulevard, in Hamilton Park. There, HWKN has designed an 18-story and 397-unit rental development for KRE Group, which is now almost complete.
A five-story residential building is nearing completion at 225 14th Street, in Park Slope, Brooklyn, by the border of Gowanus. The site is five blocks away from the D, N, R, and W trains. Harel Edrey of EDG Development is responsible for the development, and the same firm is also working on the design.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 150-16 Hillside Avenue in Jamaica, Queens. The site is two blocks from Parsons Boulevard, serviced by the E and F trains, and the Jamaica Center subway station is seven blocks away, serviced by the E, J, and Z trains. Muhammad S Alam is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a four-story commercial building at 151 Dwight Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The site is eleven blocks away from the Smith-9th Street subway station, serviced by the F and G trains. Otsego LLC will be responsible for the development.
74 Trinity Place will be a substantial addition to the Financial District’s tapestry of buildings, and now, work for the project is starting to progress above ground level. Once complete, the 26-story tower will bring 310,000 square feet of new office space to the neighborhood, which is somewhat of a surprise, since it was originally expected to house condominiums.
