A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for the four-story, 64-unit mixed-use building planned at 455 Ocean Avenue, located on the corner of Dwight Street, in Jersey City’s Greenville section. The project, dubbed Dr. Lane Frances Edwards Apartments, will boast ground-floor commercial retail space and a mix of supportive and affordable rental apartments. There will be five units set aside for homeless veterans, while the other 59, comprised of one-, two- and three-bedrooms, will rent at below-market rates to families of a limited income, the Jersey Journal reported. The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) is the developer and Kitchen & Associates is behind the design.
Brooklyn-based Cayuga Capital Management has filed applications for a four-story, 5,040-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 115 Broadway, in South Williamsburg. The site is a 1,340-square-foot, wedge-shaped vacant lot bound by South 6th Street and Bedford Avenue. Retail space will occupy the cellar level, the ground floor, and an upper mezzanine level. Office space will take up the second floor, followed by community facility space on the third and fourth floors. Together, the retail and office space will amount to 3,785 square feet while the community facility space will total 1,168 square feet. Midtown South-based DXA Studio is the architect of record. The Marcy Avenue stop on the J and M trains is five blocks away.
A Staten Island-based property owner has filed applications for three two-story, two-family houses at 261-265 York Avenue, in New Brighton on Staten Island’s North Shore. Two of the buildings will measure 2,276 square feet and the third will measure 2,013 square feet. Across all three, the full-floor residential units should average 789 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. Jorge F. Canepa’s Staten Island-based Archidesign Architectural Studio is the architect of record. The 60-foot-wide, 5,073-square-foot plot is currently vacant.
Brooklyn’s waterfront is booming, and today YIMBY has a fresh rendering of one tower coming to the northern end, at 21 India Street, in Greenpoint. The site had previously gone by the address 10 Huron Street, and is currently sprouting a 39-story and 392-foot-tall tower, aptly dubbed The Greenpoint, which will contain apartments on its lower floors and condominiums up above.
Only a portion of the former five-story commercial building’s steel skeleton remains at the site of a planned 11-story, 137,081-square-foot commercial building at 510 West 22nd Street, located along the High Line in West Chelsea. The steel beams will be incorporated into the new building, which means the project is technically an expansion. Excavation work is currently taking place elsewhere on the property, as seen in the latest from Tectonic.
