YIMBY has covered One Vanderbilt’s evolution extensively, and several years after it was initially proposed, construction is now reaching well above street level. Today, we have a new look at what the uppermost portion of the tower will yield, in the form of its observation deck. The developer, SL Green, is considering several new options.
Today YIMBY has both the reveal, and a construction update on 25-16 37th Avenue, aka ‘The Smyth,’ in Long Island City’s Dutch Kills neighborhood. Excavation is nearly complete, and foundation work is expected to begin shortly.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 144 38th Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The development will replace a rather unattractive four-story residential structure. The site is five blocks away from the 7 train’s last stop, Main Street Station. Tan Architects will be responsible for the design. The architecture firm has also recently filed permits for a hotel just a block away from the Main Street station.
Last month, YIMBY reported on permits for three lots, at 578, 580, and 582nd East 138th Street, in Mott Haven, The Bronx. Now, we have the renderings by OMF Architect PC. The façade uses a simple design scheme with contrasts of white, black, and gray to cleanly articulate its shape.
Permits have been filed for a new six-story commercial building at 31-40 Whitestone Expressway in Flushing, Queens. The new development comes after Storage Deluxe purchased the site from Cube Smart for $27 million. Their plan is to refurbish the existing building, and erect a second storage building to create a total 179,000 square at the site. Storage Deluxe had sold 21 of its facilities to Cube Smart in 2011 for a total $560 million. The company is responsible for development.
