The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) has filed applications for a three-story, 22,896-square-foot expansion of P.S. 066 Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, located at 85-11 102nd Street on the western end of Richmond Hill in Queens. The expansion will be built on the northern side of the existing structure, at the address 85-05 102nd Street, and will increase the size of the facility to 62,316 square feet. There will be a cafeteria in the basement, a pre-kindergarten wing on the ground floor, a kindergarten wing on the second floor, along with a nurse’s office, and additional classrooms, offices, and exercise rooms on the third floor. AECOM is the architect of record. YIMBY has reported on four other school projects filed by the city this past week.
In YIMBY’s recent rundown of Long Island City development, we tallied seventeen structures of eight stories and above that have topped-out in the Court Square area within the past twelve months. It appears that The Jackson, which is taking shape at 11-51 47th Avenue, will be the next to join the list. The structure doubled in size between August 15th and the start of October, growing from five to ten floors, so we expect to see the remaining penthouse floor and the service bulkhead rise in the coming weeks. The 53-unit condo project is being developed by Charney Construction and Development, in conjunction with Ascent Development and Tavros Capital, while the industrial-inspired design was crafted by Chris Fogarty of Fogarty Finger.
Another day, another new building in Crown Heights. Today’s crop of filings brought plans for a five-story, 16-unit development at 701 Prospect Place, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues.
The nine-story, 32-unit residential project under development at 42-50 27th Street, in Long Island City’s Queens Plaza/Court Square section, has topped out. The structure can be seen in a photograph by The Court Square Blog. The new building measures 35,294 square feet and rises 89 feet above the street level. Its residential units should average 777 square feet apiece, which means the apartment will likely be rentals, although smaller condominiums are slowly becoming more attractive and are a possibility here. The Ampiera Group is the developer and Flushing-based MY Architect is behind the architecture. Completion is expected next year.
