New apartments are rising in the heart of Midwood, and we have a glimpse of the construction thanks to photographer Tectonic.
A model has surfaced of the planned five-story, 63,341-square-foot church project at 68-03 Roosevelt Avenue, located on the corner of 69th Street in Woodside. The Universal Church of the Kingdom of God is currently seeking a variance from the Board of Standards and Appeals for the project, DNAinfo reported. The proposed structure would stand 79 feet tall and would include a house of worship, classrooms, multipurpose rooms, a recording studio, and 10 rectory units. A 150-car parking garage is also part of the plan. It would replace the congregation’s existing facility. Atlanta-based M3G Design is the architect of record. The 69th Street stop on the 7 train rumbles just above the street.
The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) has filed applications for a three-story, 56,856-square-foot expansion of P.S. 32 The Samuel Mills Sprole School at 317 Hoyt Street, in Gowanus. The new addition, with an address of 420 Union Street, will feature administrative offices, a cafeteria, a library, and a lobby on the ground floor, followed by classrooms on the two floors above. A playground will be located on the second floor, as well. The 46-foot-tall structure will most likely be built on the eastern end of the site, where single-story overflow classrooms currently exist. Edelman Sultan Knox Wood Architects will be responsible for the design.
Last year, Tishman Speyer paid two tenants $25 million to vacate a small apartment on its development site in Hudson Yards. The hefty settlement cleared the way for the commercial real estate developer to build a massive office tower at 509 West 34th Street, between 10th and 11th avenues. Now the firm has filed plans for the 64-story building, which has been named “The Spiral” and comes with a second address at 66 Hudson Boulevard.
An updated rendering has been revealed for the phase two retail portion of Neptune/Sixth, a multi-building, mixed-use development located at 532 Neptune Avenue and 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, in Coney Island. The first phase, now under construction, consists of a seven-story, 161,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building. The second phase of the project will be a single-story, 90,000-square-foot retail building. CVS Pharmacy recently signed a lease for 11,300 square feet in the building and construction is set to begin later this fall.
