A year and a half ago, YIMBY spotted permits for a sizable mixed-use development that would replace a grocery store at 42-76 Main Street, on the southern edge of Flushing. Today, we have a look at the modern building on the corner of Blossom Avenue, which is being designed by InFocus Design and Planning.
One of the items on the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s backlog of items on the calendar since before 2010 came back before it on Tuesday. The LPC once again took up the designation of the Bowne Street Community Church in Flushing. The session was not a vote on the item, but another public hearing.
JHG Holdings has acquired, for $50.4 million, the Parish of St. Vincent de Paul at 123 West 23rd Street and the four-story tenement buildings at 116-120 West 24th Street, in Chelsea. The developer also owns the four-story hotel at 131 West 23rd Street, The Real Deal reported.

Construction is wrapping up on an expansion project at 68 West 126th Street, in Harlem, as seen in a picture by Harlem+Bespoke. A formerly dilabidated four-story, 11-unit brownstone SRO building has been redeveloped into a six-story, six-unit residential structure, per the latest building permits. The building now has 5,578 square feet of residential space, which means the apartments should average 930 square feet apiece. Many of the units will occupy an entire floor, although it’s unknown if they will be rentals or condominiums. An anonymous Harlem-based LLC is the property owner and Barry Goldsmith’s Brooklyn-based firm is the architect of record.
A parking garage in Melrose, in the South Bronx, is about to give way to a large affordable residential project with a charter school. And we have the first look at the project at 600 East 156th Street, which is currently making its way through the city rezoning process.
