A Brooklyn-based property owner has filed applications for a seven-story, 45,728-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 31 Spencer Street, located in the northwestern corner of Bedford-Stuyvesant. The 81-foot-tall project will feature a 59-car parking garage on the ground floor, 29,474 square feet of medical office space across the ground-floor mezzanine through fourth floors, and 16,254 square feet of commercial offices on the fifth through seventh floors.
Construction is now 15 stories above street level on the taller tower of the two-building, 1,115-unit mixed-use project at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, located in the Court Square section of Long Island City. Foundation work is underway on the shorter tower. The structure can be seen thanks to aerial photos posted to the YIMBY Forums by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the entire complex will encompass 1,209,884 square feet.
A vacant lot in the Clinton Hill Historic District is on its way to being filled. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved a four-story home at 311 Vanderbilt Avenue. It will present as three stories from the front, but other viewing angles will show a set-back fourth floor.
Construction has finished at 78 West 3rd Street in Greenwich Village, where a pre-war, three-story townhouse received an extra floor and a horizontal extension. Permits call for a 2,997-square-foot commercial space on the lower levels. Five residential units take up 3,825 square feet on the floors above, averaging 765 square feet per unit. CEJ Properties LLC is the owner.
The New York City Economic Development Corporation and the city’s Department of Parks and Recreation have launched a request for proposals (RFP) for five development sites located within the Amusement District between West 10th and 16th streets in Coney Island.

The five properties, all of which are currently vacant, combine to measure a total 150,000 square feet. Proposals are due March 17 and the city anticipates new attractions on the sites will be open for the summer of 2018.
