Construction is now six stories above street level on the first of two 15-story, mixed-use buildings under development at 207 Van Vorst Street, in Jersey City’s Paulus Hook section. Work, presumably excavation, has also begun on the second building. Fields Development Group is the developer and Marchetto Higgins Stieve Architects is behind the design.
The Hellenic Orthodox Community of Astoria has filed applications for a six-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 30-67 31st Street, in the heart of Astoria. The project will measure 11,232 square feet. It will include 3,223 square feet of community facility space, which will likely be used by the organization as an educational facility. The residential units above are expected to average 801 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Anastasios Giannopoulos’s Astoria-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 34-foot-wide, 2,668-square-foot plot is vacant. The 30th Avenue stop on the N and Q trains is a block to the north.
A year ago, SL Green began knocking down a full block of prewar commercial buildings next to Grand Central to make way for a 1,401-foot-tall office tower at One Vanderbilt Avenue. Now YIMBY has a time lapse of the lengthy demolition between 42nd and 43rd Streets, courtesy of the project’s PR team.
Construction has quietly topped out on the 14-story, 89-unit mixed-use affordable housing building under development at 92-61 165th Street, located on the corner of Archer Avenue in downtown Jamaica. A rendering of the project has also been spotted on the construction fence. The latest building permits indicate the structure measures 93,041 square feet and rises 132 feet above street level to its roof.
A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for the four-story, 64-unit mixed-use building planned at 455 Ocean Avenue, located on the corner of Dwight Street, in Jersey City’s Greenville section. The project, dubbed Dr. Lane Frances Edwards Apartments, will boast ground-floor commercial retail space and a mix of supportive and affordable rental apartments. There will be five units set aside for homeless veterans, while the other 59, comprised of one-, two- and three-bedrooms, will rent at below-market rates to families of a limited income, the Jersey Journal reported. The Jersey City Redevelopment Agency (JCRA) is the developer and Kitchen & Associates is behind the design.
