Local developer Sam Chang has completed another hospitality project in Midtown West, located at 324 West 44th Street. Based in Long Island City, McSam Hotel Group is one of the largest hotel developers in New York City with over 20 properties across the five boroughs.
Permits have been filed for a fourteen-story mixed-use building at 2760 West 33rd Street in Brooklyn’s Coney Island. The development will be an addition to an existing site owned by the Starrett Corporation. The project is located at the western edge of the neighborhood, right on the border of the private residential Seagate community. The Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station is the closest train station, located just over a mile away and serviced by the D and Q trains. DVL Inc is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been pre-filed for a seven-story residential building at 639 Foster Avenue in Kensington, Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks from the 18th Avenue subway station, serviced by the F train. Ten blocks away is the Newkirk Plaza subway station, serviced by the B and Q trains. Solomon Feder of Key Developers NY is listed as responsible for the development.
Renderings are out for a 74-story tower at 42-50 24th Street, in downtown Long Island City, Queens. If built, the structure would be a major addition to the borough’s vertical profile, with a speculative minimum height of 750 feet, based on double-height retail at the base. If it ends up being any higher, the structure would become the tallest structure in Queens. Its current competitor is 23-15 44th Drive, a condominium tower expected to rise 752 feet, and is located three blocks to the south. The tallest proposed building for the borough was formerly 29-37 41st Avenue, though developer Durst downsized the project to just 710 feet.
Standing next to Zaha Hadid’s first residential project in New York City at 520 West 28th Street, the Isay Weinfeld designed complex, dubbed “The Jardim,” has gotten both its brick and glass facade up as seen from the High Line. Developed by Centaur Properties and built by Pizzarotti, the project spans the width of the block from West 27th to West 28th Street, with two towers separated by a private landscaped garden and outdoor courtyard for residents.
