A parking garage in Melrose, in the South Bronx, is about to give way to a large affordable residential project with a charter school. And we have the first look at the project at 600 East 156th Street, which is currently making its way through the city rezoning process.
Completion is near for the 10-story, 74-room hotel under construction at 40-47 22nd Street, in northern Long Island City. The property will most likely operate under the Howard Johnson brand, which completed another 10-story hotel four blocks northwest at 38-61 12th Street in 2014. The project’s developer is Ratan Realty Three LLC, with Michael Kang serving as the architect.
Vertical construction is moving full steam ahead on the 42-story, 452-key EDITION hotel (by Marriott) under development at 701 Seventh Avenue. That’s on the corner of West 47th Street in the heart of Times Square. The progress can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The tower, dubbed 20 Times Square, will rise 517 feet above street level and will contain 269,769 square feet of commercial space, according to the latest building permits. Retail space will be located on two cellar levels and the ground through fourth floors. Actual hotel rooms will be located on the 14th through 40th floors.
A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a three-story, 45,262-square-foot commercial building at 1039 Coney Island Avenue, located on the corner of Foster Avenue in the Ditmas Park section of Flatbush. The project will contain a total of 28,886 square feet of commercial space. There will be six retail units on the ground floor, followed by office space on the second and third floors. A 42-car garage will be located in the cellar, in addition to eight off-street parking spaces outside. Dal H. Chun’s Lower East Side-based engineering firm is the applicant of record. The 16,376-square-foot plot is currently home to a gas station. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
An anonymous Corona-based LLC has filed applications for a four-story, seven-unit residential building at 102-14 Radcliff Avenue, in Corona. The project will measure 6,770 square feet and its residential units should average 711 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Gino Longo’s College Point-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,500-square-foot property was occupied by a single-story brick townhouse until that was demolished back in August. The 103rd Street-Corona Plaza stop on the 7 train is 11 blocks away.
