Development is booming in the borderlands between Long Island City and Astoria, and today, YIMBY has a rendering for a mixed-use apartment building planned beneath the elevated subway tracks on 31st Street, not far from Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image. The seven-story project will rise at 36-31 31st Street, half a block from the 36th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains.
An architect and his wife are finally planning to renovate a crumbling and long-vacant townhouse at 57 West 130th Street in Harlem.
Back in January of 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the eight-story, five-unit mixed-use project at 372 Broadway, in TriBeCa. Construction began on the building’s conversion in early 2015, and now YIMBY has new details and never-before-seen renderings of the condominium project, which goes by Six Cortlandt Alley. Curbed NY was the first to report on the project’s sales launch.
Financial District-based Glory Capital has filed applications to convert the 27-story, 92-unit dormitory at 67 Livingston Street, in Brooklyn Heights, into an office building. The 45,143-square-foot, 22-foot-wide building will host office space on the ground through 25th floors. The conversion will include amenities, specifically a fitness center on the second floor and a sky lounge on the 26th floor. The property’s square-footage will remain unchanged. The 182-student dormitory is current being used by the Art Institute of New York City, and their lease expires later this year. H. Thomas O’Hara’s Midtown South-based HTO Architect is the architect of record.
Property owner Joseph Molino, doing business as KDC of Staten Island, has filed applications for twin three-story, two-family houses at 18-20 Adams Avenue, in Grant City, located three blocks from the Jefferson Avenue station on the Staten Island Railway. Each will measure 3,970 square feet, with one residential unit on the ground floor and the second located across the second and third floors. Across both houses, the units should average a family-sized 1,546 square feet apiece. Staten Island-based Michael Deruvo & Associates Architects is the architect of record. Demolition permits were filed late last year to remove the site’s existing single-story home.
