Over the summer, Adam America Real Estate and MSD Partners picked up a taxi garage at 22-12 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City for $43.5 million. Now the developers have filed applications for their planned residential building.
Summit Development & Management Corp. is proposing a five-story, 10-unit residential building at 70 East Broadway, on the corner of Roosevelt Boulevard in Long Beach, located on Nassau County’s south shore barrier island. The project requires five separate variances before it can be built, according to the LI Herald, one of which includes a height variance. Ten three-bedroom condominium units would be built on the 11,000 square-foot plot if the Long Beach Zoning Board of Appeals approves the project, which it expects to review in March. The lot is currently zoned for multi-family buildings no more than four stories in height. The new building would replace a two-story, three-family home.
Back in August of 2015, the two-towered, 707-unit mixed-use development proposed at 60 South Broadway, in White Plains (in Westchester County), was making its way through the approval process. After nearly three years since the project was made public, the White Plains Common Council has unanimously approved the 858,000 square-foot project, Westfair reports. Two 24-story residential towers will sit atop a common 93,840 square-foot commercial base featuring retail and restaurant space. The residential units above will be rental apartments, 43 of which will be rented at affordable rates. There will also be roughly 30,000 square feet of outdoor public space. Finally, a four-story, 1,000-car parking garage will be built entirely underground. Westchester Pavilion, the largely vacant single-story retail complex, must first be demolished. Perkins Eastman is designing, and Urstadt Biddle Properties Inc. and a branch of Miami-based Lennar Corporation are the developers.
Developer Chris Xu is working on huge, mixed-use projects in Flushing, Elmhurst and Jamaica, and now he’s filed plans for a 79-story residential tower at 23-15 44th Drive in Long Island City.
Brooklyn-based Ofer Prager has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 688 Lincoln Avenue, in the far eastern reaches of East New York, located across from the five-tower, 1,525-unit Linden Plaza Apartments complex. The new building will measure 4,230 square feet and will contain 3,093 square feet of residential space. The full-floor residential units will average 1,031 square feet apiece and will probably be geared towards families. Suresh Manchanda’s Flushing-based L&C Associates is the applicant of record. Demolition permits were filed to remove the existing single-story home this past summer.
