Permits have been filed for an eight-story hotel building at 95-10 218th Street, in Jamaica, Queens. Located near the corner of Jamaica Avenue and 218th Street, the new hotel is one block west of the Queens Village station on the LIRR, serviced by the Hempstead and Oyster Bay lines. Hotel developer Amritpal Sandhu is listed as the owner behind the applications. He previously filed permits for an eight-story hotel at this location in 2016.
At the time of YIMBY’s last update on the 702-foot-tall and 50-story 25 Park Row, the tower was climbing to the final floor of its crown. Now, the 29th-tallest skyscraper currently under construction in the Five Boroughs has topped-out over City Hall Park and the Financial District, making a noticeable impact on the Lower Manhattan skyline when looking east from Broadway and City Hall Park. The building will include 110 condominiums and is being designed by COOKFOX Architects and developed by L&M Development Partners, as well as the J&R Music Store founders. It took less than a year for this tower to rise to its pinnacle, while the glass and facade panels are continuing to rise into the sky.
New renderings have been revealed for 185 Broadway, which is imminently set to rise in Lower Manhattan. Designed by FX Collaborative Architects and developed by SL Green, the 31-story, 260,000 square foot, mixed-use and partially affordable building has had its site prep completed, as demolition of three previously extant low-rise structures at 183 Broadway, 187 Broadway, and 5-7 Dey Street has fully wrapped. Necessary air rights and financing to begin construction have also been obtained, and work is anticipated to start in the first quarter of 2019.
A decade-old plan to redesign the wedge of land known as Peck Slip Park is now scheduled for review by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. Located between South Street and Water Street in Manhattan’s Financial District, Peck Slip Park measures about .65 acres and is surrounded by a school, a hotel, a parking lot, and a Con Edison electrical facility.
10 days ago, YIMBY featured applications for 637 East 176th Street in Tremont, Bronx. Today, we have the first look at the design for the project, by Badaly Architects. The eight-story residential building will have a multi-tone brick facade atop of a concrete block base for the first floor. Situated between Arthur Avenue and Belmont Avenue, the site is a merger of two lots on the interior of the block.
