Permits have been filed for an eight-story school at 156 17th Street, in Greenwood, Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks away from both the 25th Street Station and 9th Street Station, serviced by the D, N, R, and W trains. SDS Brooklyn will be responsible for the development, which suggests this will not be a public school.
Permits have been filed for a single-story gymnasium at P.S. 81 Jean Paul Richter, at 1716 Bleecker Street, in Ridgewood, Queens. The school sits right on the border of Brooklyn, overlooking the neighborhood of Bushwick, and is a third of a mile from the Seneca Avenue subway station, serviced by the M train.
Last week, YIMBY reported on construction accelerating at 125 Greenwich Street, located kitty-corner from the World Trade Center site, in the heart of the Financial District. Today, we have another set of fresh renderings for the imminently 912-foot-tall tower, thanks to Bizzi & Partners, one of its developers. While it won’t stand anywhere near heights that were initially expected, it will still make quite an impact on the Downtown skyline.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a hotel on two lots, at 38-22 and 38-26 11th street, in Long Island City, Queens. The area is popular for hotel construction, and is located just a third of a mile from the 21st street – Queensbridge station, the first stop on the F train as it arrives from Manhattan. Stations serviced by the E, M, and 7 trains are also nearby, as is the burgeoning Hunters Point, which boasts MoMA PS1, Gantry Plaza State Park, and waterfront views of Midtown Manhattan.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 246 Echo Place, in The Bronx’s Mount Hope neighborhood.

SKF Development is responsible for the project.
