The dilapidated, two-story venue building at 2 Chapel Avenue, in the Port Liberté community of southern Jersey City, is expected to renovated and expanded into a four-story, 40,000-square-foot structure. The previous venue was called The Pointe, but Landmark Developers will rebrand the project as the North River House, Jersey Digs reported. The redeveloped building will include a lobby, a lounge, a restaurant, and two banquet halls. In addition, there will be multiple bars throughout, landscaped gardens, patios attached to the restaurant, and cabanas. Work is expected to start soon and completion is scheduled for 2018.
An anonymous Queens-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, 10-unit residential building at 157 Beach 96th Street, in Seaside. That’s a neighborhood along the Rockaways in southern Queens. The project will measure 10,548 square feet and its residential units should average 987 square feet apiece, which means the units could either be rentals or condominiums. There will be a total of eight off-street parking spaces. Oscar M. Fuertes’s Bayside-based OMF Architecture is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,000-square-foot property is currently vacant. A two-story house occupied the site until July. The Beach 98th Street stop on the A train and Rockaway Park Shuttle is two blocks away.

A rendering has been revealed of the six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building planned at 501 Myrtle Avenue, located on the corner of Ryerson Street in Clinton Hill. The image was spotted on-site by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership. The latest building permits indicate the project, technically an expansion of the existing single-story building, will measure 13,088 square feet. It will include 1,882 square feet of commercial-retail space on the ground and cellar levels. The residential units above should average 690 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Amenities include storage for five bikes, a “recreation room” on the second floor, a rooftop terrace. The developer is operating as an anonymous LLC and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architectural firm is designing.
