A 13-story residential tower is set to rise at 27-51 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City. The 34-unit project would stand on what is possibly the city’s single hottest development block, where six different projects are under construction or in planning. Lions Group is the developer. Building permits list Vincent J Tomasino of Jackson Bounty LLC as the owner. The project’s residential component would measure 31,996 square feet, resulting in units averaging 941 square feet. The ground level would house 1,555 square feet of retail.
Back in July of 2015, it was revealed that the New York City Housing Authority was planning an all-affordable residential building at 110 St. Edwards Street, located at the corner of Myrtle Avenue within the Ingersoll Houses public housing development, in Fort Greene. Now, a rendering, along with additional details, have been revealed on the building in a report by the New York Times. The building will rise 16 stories and will host 145 below-market rate, senior-exclusive (62-years-old and up) rental apartments. The project, dubbed Ingersoll Senior, will also include a senior center featuring a variety of services. BFC Partners is the developer and will ground-lease the property from the city. Construction is expected to begin next year.
