An anonymous Bayside-based LLC has filed applications for a six-story, 20-unit residential building at 2499 Ocean Avenue, in Sheepshead Bay. The project will measure 16,267 square feet, which means its residential units should average 813 square feet apiece. Amenities are to include a recreation room, a 10-car garage, bike storage, laundry facilities, and private residential storage space. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. Maspeth-based Angelo Ng & Anthony Ng Architects Studio is the architect of record. The 50-foot-wide, 5,500-square-foot assemblage, at 2497-2499 Ocean Avenue, is currently occupied by two single-family houses. Demolition permits were filed in June. The Avenue U stop on the Q train is six blocks away.
A 15-story residential building is slated to rise over 411 West 120th Street in Morningside Heights. Developers filed plans Friday for a 142-foot-tall, 57-unit project there.
YIMBY readers may be getting used to announcements of Long Island City superlatives, such as the tallest hotel in Queens nearing completion close to the borough’s tallest residence, which was recently surpassed by the city’s tallest apartment building outside of Manhattan. Even against these headlines, the complex rising at 28-10 Jackson Avenue, designed by SLCE Architects, takes scale to a new level. With over 1,900 units, 28-10 Jackson Avenue nearly doubles the offerings of the massive, 974-unit Hayden under development a few blocks west.
Exterior detailing is ready to be installed on the 33-story, 69-unit mixed-use tower at 172 Madison Avenue. Stone panels that will complete the gray and glass facade will be installed in a matter of days, according to Karl Fischer Architect, which is designing the tower.
Last November, YIMBY reported that the 18-story, 288-unit mixed-use project at 7 West 21st Street, in the Flatiron District, topped out. Since then, much of the façade has been installed on both street fronts — the building spans the block between 21st and 22nd streets — as seen in photos taken by Tectonic. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 289,809 square feet. Both buildings will be connected up to the ground floor, where 13,076 square feet of retail is planned. The residential units above will be rentals, averaging 904 square feet apiece. Twenty percent (58 units) will rent at below-market rates through the affordable housing lottery. Friedland Properties is the developer. Morris Adjmi Architects is the design architect, with the Stephen B. Jacobs Group serving as the executive architect. Completion is expected in 2017. The new building sits within the Ladies’ Mile Historic District.
