Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Ozymandius Realty and Orange Management’s planned eight-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 75 First Avenue in the East Village. Now, the long-time owners are selling the site to Colonnade Group. The site allows for an eight-story, 35,000 square foot building with retail, but it’s not known whether the new developer intends to follow the previously filed plans. The previous owners began assembling the site in 2005, when a 14-story building could have been built, before the city downzoned the East Village in 2008, according to The Real Deal. NO Architecture designed the old proposal.
Since December 2013, YIMBY has revealed three different conceptual renderings of 50 Hudson Yards, Related Companies’ planned commercial (and residential?) development project between 10th Avenue and Hudson Boulevard, and West 33rd and 34th Street, in Midtown West. Today, Related has reached a deal with McDonalds to acquire the last property at the development site, according to Crain’s. McDonald’s plans to close before the end of the year, and demolition will subsequently commence on the existing properties. A 3.3 million square foot mixed-use building could be built, though a final design has not yet been revealed.
Property owner Samuel Delaney has filed applications for a two-story, three-unit residential building at 230 Beach 109th Street, in Seaside, Queens, three blocks from the Beach 105th Street stop on the A and S trains. The building will total 2,640 square feet, which means units will average 880 square feet apiece. Great Neck-based Meltzer/Costa & Associates is the architect of record. The project is being built under the post-Sandy Build It Back program, and an existing two-story building must first be demolished.
In June, we unveiled some glassy renderings for 88-92 Linden Boulevard in Flatbush, and now the developer, Boaz Gilad, has filed new building applications for the nine-story development.
Nassau County-based Feinstein CP Realty has filed applications for a four-story, 81,532 square-foot automotive commercial building at 30-35 College Point Boulevard, in southern College Point. The building will handle automobile sales, repairs, and other services, and will also hold storage space and associated offices. The nearly 120,000 square-foot lot will include 149 parking spaces, and Maryland-based Penny Design Group is the applicant of record.
