It was over a year ago that we brought you news of a planned nine-story, 32-unit residential building at 42-50 27th Street, between 42nd Road and 43rd Avenue, in the heart of Long Island City. Now, we can show you what it will look like. MY Architect, based in Flushing, has published a rendering of the building.
After years of stalled sites and legal limbo sparked by a controversial rezoning, development has kicked into high gear in the former industrial patch of South Williamsburg known as the Broadway Triangle. Plans have surfaced for a six-story residential building at 54 Throop Avenue, around the corner from the Lorimer Stop on the J and M trains.
While most ongoing projects in booming Long Island City involve ground-up construction, 5-33 48th Avenue, two blocks east of the East River, is a conversion of the type more commonly seen in the borough across that river. The renovation and expansion of a four-story manufacturing building into a seven-story residential property is well underway. The project will feature 36 units, as well as retail at the ground floor. Joseph A Sultana of JLS Designs Architecture is indicated as the general contractor on the project’s work permit.
In December, the 12-story, 48-unit mixed-use building under construction at 285 West 110th Street (a.k.a. 2040 Frederick Douglass Boulevard), in Harlem, was nine stories in height. Today, the structure is topped out, Harlem+Bespoke reports. The building will boast a variety of unit configurations and 10 of the condos will be sold at below market rates. Retail and community facility space will also be located on the cellar, ground, and second floors. Artimus Construction is the developer the building, which is dubbed Circa Central Park, and FXFOWLE Architects is designing it. Completion is slated for 2017.
Last fall, YIMBY brought you the first partial renderings of Cape Advisor’s planned 12-story, 23-unit condominium building at 30 Warren Street, in TriBeCa, and this past Christmas, the New York Times revealed a complete rendering. Being designed by Post-Office Architetes, the project will have units ranging from one- to three-bedrooms, measuring roughly 1,000 to 2,700 square feet, respectively. Eight of the condos will feature private outdoor space. Additionally, retail space will measure 5,578 square feet on the ground floor, and completion is expected in the summer of 2017. An existing five-story, block-long building will have to be demolished.
