Construction is underway on the fourth floor of the 17-story, 397-unit mixed-use building being developed at 515 Marin Boulevard, located between Eighth and Ninth streets in the Hamilton Park section of Jersey City. The construction update is possible thanks to a photo posted to the Forums. Dubbed Marin Residences, it will also feature 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Residential units will be located above, of which 20 percent (80 units) will be designated as affordable. It’s unclear if the apartments will be rentals or condominiums. A 261-car parking garage is also being built, in addition to a 30,000-square-foot public park directly behind the project. Kushner Real Estate Group and Claremont Properties are the developers. HWKN Architects is behind the design and completion is expected in late 2017.
Property owner David Azour, doing business as an anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC, has filed applications for a four-story, eight-unit residential building at 1666 Dean Street, in eastern Crown Heights. It will measure 5,900 square feet and its residential units should average 625 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. There will be two unit per floor and no parking is included. Woody Chen’s Elmhurst-based Infocus Design & Planning is the architect of record. The 25-foot-wide, 2,680-square-foot lot is currently occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits were recently on Monday. The Utica Avenue stop on the A/C trains is five blocks north.
Staten Island-based Terra Estates has filed applications for two three-story, two-family houses at 91-95 Fremont Avenue, in Grant City. That’s a neighborhood located along Staten Island’s East Shore. The houses will each measure 3,233 square feet and will host a single unit on the ground floor, followed by a second unit on the second and third floors. The apartments will likely boast family-sized configurations. Each house will come with a 300-square-foot, single-car garage. James V. Morri’s Staten Island-based architectural firm is the architect of record. The 7,500-square-foot property was occupied by a two-story house until that was demolished in 2014. The neighborhood’s Staten Island Railway station is a stone’s throw away.
Yesterday, YIMBY featured an update on Kushner Companies’ 30 Journal Square, which has transformed from a 40-something-story building into a 72-story tower. Today, we have a fresh look at One Journal Square, which has also experienced a significant height bump. What was originally supposed to host two 50-odd story buildings will instead give rise to one tower of 56 floors, and another of 79 floors.
