Earlier this week, YIMBY brought you news of the five-story, 65,585-square-foot public school – P.S. 398-Q – planned at 69-01 34th Avenue, in western Jackson Heights. Now, new details and renderings have been revealed by DNAinf0. P.S. 398-Q will be an elementary school for 476 students in the pre-K through fifth grade range. In addition to classrooms, a gymnasium, a cafeteria, administrative offices, and a library, the building will include an enclosed 4,000-square-foot rooftop playground, a music room, art rooms, and a guidance office. The school is expected to open in September of 2019. Purcell Architects is behind the design. The New York City School Construction Authority (SCA) acquired the property for $6.3 million last year.
In January, D&K Realty Development filed applications for three three-story, three-family residential buildings at 518-522 West 232nd Street, in southern Riverdale, located six blocks from the 231st Street stop on the 1 train. Now, the developer is scraping those plans, in favor of a single building. Newly filed applications call for a four-story, nine-unit structure measuring 14,148 square feet. The residential units should average 996 square feet, which means condominiums are probably in the works. Amenities listed in the Schedule A include an eight-car parking garage in the cellar and a laundry room. Flushing-based Michael Kang is still the architect of record.
The owners of Brooklyn-based Colossal Media Group have filed applications for a four-story, single-family townhouse at 42 Sharon Street, in East Williamsburg, located four blocks from the Grand Street stop on the L train. The structure will measure 3,630 square feet and will include a two-car garage on the ground floor. Richard A. Goodstein’s Brooklyn-based nC2 Architecture is the architect of record. The 20-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by attached single-story brick house.
Brooklyn-based Soft Stone Development has filed applications for a three-story, two-family residential building at 1441 58th Street, in the heart of Borough Park, located four blocks from the 62nd Street stop on the D train. The project will encompass 7,212 square feet, and its residential units should average a very spacious 3,574 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are surely in the works. The ground and cellar levels will contain one apartment, while the second and third floors will host the other unit. Genaro Urueta’s Maspeth-based Studio Gallos is the architect of record. The 40-foot-wide lot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed back in December.
Olmstead Properties and Newmark Holdings are in contract to acquire the six-story, 225,000-square-foot commercial building at 43-01 22nd Street, in the Queens Plaza/Court Square section of Long Island City. The building currently houses office and design spaces, with Reis Studios, Concept Press, and interior designer Christian Liaigre leasing space at the property. The building is expected to trade hands for more than $60 million, according to Commercial Observer. The new owners plan to renovate the building by upgrading the lobby and replacing the windows and elevators. Roughly 50,000 square feet of commercial space is currently available.
