Since November, building owner Jean Claude Marian has been trying to convince the Landmarks Preservation Commission to allow him to construct an addition atop an Upper East Side building. Like the two before it, the latest attempt was not a success. The building in question is 1143 Fifth Avenue, located between East 95th Street and East 96th Street in the Carnegie Hill Historic District.
In December 2015, Curbcut Urban Partners and Platinum Realty Associates acquired, for $12.07 million, the two-story industrial building at 38-01 Queens Boulevard, in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City. A rendering of the planned nine-story, 146,000-square-foot multi-use commercial building has now been revealed, via the Wall Street Journal. The project will include office space, retail, and a large amount of community facility space that will be able to accommodate medical offices, nonprofits, and other community-related tenants. The commercial building will also feature amenities like a rooftop deck and terraces. The developers plan to both lease and sell, as commercial condos, the space in the building. SBLM Architects is responsible for the design. Demolition permits were filed in January to knock down the existing building.
Dimola Construction Corporation has filed applications for twin two-story, two-family houses at 80-84 Mill Road, in New Dorp Beach, located on Staten Island’s south shore. Each of the homes will measure 3,891 square feet. Across both, the full-floor apartments should average 1,293 square feet apiece. That means the they will likely have family-sized configurations. Each of the structures will also have a 264 square-foot, single-car garage. Joseph M. Morace’s Staten Island-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 75-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story home.
David Weisz, doing business as an anonymous Midtown-based LLC, has filed applications for two four-story, four-unit residential building at 1430-1432 51st Street, in the heart of Borough Park, located four blocks from the 50th Street on the D train. The structures will measure 7,259 and 7,083 square feet respectively. Across both buildings, the full-floor residential units should average 1,377 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. The buildings will be topped by a open roof terrace. Hudson Valley-based Kenneth Thomas is the applicant of record. The 50-foot-site’s two-and-a-half-story house has yet to receive demolition permits.
Back in April of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings for a 45-story, 415-unit mixed-use building at 29-26 Northern Boulevard (a.k.a. 29-22 & 29-32 Northern Boulevard), in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. Excavation began in the summer of 2015 and foundation work is now well underway, The Court Square Blog reports. The project has also seen slight revisions to its design. The latest filings detail a 43-story, 500,302-square-foot mixed-use tower that will stand 481 feet above street level. There will be 11,372 square feet spread across parts of the cellar, ground, and second floors. The project’s 467 residential units will be located on the second through 41st floors, averaging a rental-sized 791 square feet apiece.
