Permits have been filed for a new six-story commercial building at 31-40 Whitestone Expressway in Flushing, Queens. The new development comes after Storage Deluxe purchased the site from Cube Smart for $27 million. Their plan is to refurbish the existing building, and erect a second storage building to create a total 179,000 square at the site. Storage Deluxe had sold 21 of its facilities to Cube Smart in 2011 for a total $560 million. The company is responsible for development.
YIMBY has been reporting on 111 Murray Street for several years at this point, and after breaking ground in July of 2015, it was at its fifteenth floor at this time last year. By August, it had topped-out, and glass had climbed over halfway up the exterior. Now, almost three months later, the crown is falling into place, and the 58-story and 800-foot-tall tower appears to be on track for an expected 2018 completion, as seen in the latest photographs from Tectonic.
A proposal by Todd Zwigard Architects that will go before the New York Landmark Preservation Commission later today has revealed plans to redevelop the currently abandoned Hamilton Theater, at 3560 Broadway between West 146th and West 147th Streets, in Harlem.

Renderings have come out depicting the removal of a single-story garage at 82 John Street, in DUMBO, Brooklyn, to be replaced with a five-story building. Permits have not been filed, so details about the project are not yet final, and the plans will go through the LPC later today.
