An updated rendering has been revealed for the phase two retail portion of Neptune/Sixth, a multi-building, mixed-use development located at 532 Neptune Avenue and 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, in Coney Island. The first phase, now under construction, consists of a seven-story, 161,000-square-foot mixed-use commercial building. The second phase of the project will be a single-story, 90,000-square-foot retail building. CVS Pharmacy recently signed a lease for 11,300 square feet in the building and construction is set to begin later this fall.
The New York City Department of Design and Construction (DDC) has filed applications for a new two-story, 31,779-square-foot Queens Library at Far Rockaway. The new building will be built on the site of the existing, single-story library branch, at 16-37 Central Avenue. The facility will feature a circulation and information center, meeting rooms, a business center, and individual children, teen, and adult sections. Snøhetta will be designing the project. The 25,877-square-foot site is located at the corner of Mott Avenue, three blocks from the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue stop on the A train. Demolition permits have not been filed for the existing library.

The project will measure 16,903 square feet with residential units averaging 681 square feet each, which indicates they will be rental apartments. Amenities include off-street parking for nine cars, storage for nine bicycles, private residential storage, laundry facilities, and a rooftop recreation space. Panagis Georgopoulos’s Flushing-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 65-foot-wide, 6,127-square-foot assemblage is partially occupied by a dilapidated single-story building.

A rendering has been revealed of the 14-story, 50-unit mixed-use building planned at 644 East 14th Street, located on the corner of Avenue C in the East Village. The building will encompass 76,259 square feet and rise 162 feet above street level, Real Estate Weekly reported. There will be 8,064 square feet of retail and 21,575 square feet of community facility space located within the tower’s three-story base. The residential units above should average 677 square feet, which indicates rental apartments. The developer is Opal Holdings, which acquired the site for $23 million over the summer. Karl Fischer’s SoHo-based architecture firm is behind the design. After YIMBY reported on the project’s initial filings when they were submitted in 2014, the site’s former single-story warehouse was demolished in late 2015.
