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.
Property owner Larry Ahern has filed applications for a two-story, 138,600-square-foot self-storage facility at 3350 Park Avenue, located on the corner of East 165th Street in the South Bronx’s Morrisania section. The project will have 90,600 square feet of commercial space, which is the area that can be rented out as storage space. Ceiling heights will also measure roughly 20 feet, so it could be that the building gets partially used for industrial purposes. Accessory offices will be located on the ground floor. There will also be four loading berths and 15 off-street parking spaces. Frank G. Relf’s Melville, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 90,800-square-foot lot is partially occupied by a collection of single-story commercial warehouses rented out to various businesses. Demolition permits haven’t been filed.
