An anonymous Brooklyn-based LLC has filed applications for a seven-story, 13,827-square-foot mixed-use commercial building at 2916 Shell Road, on Coney Island. There will be 8,919 square feet of commercial-warehouse space across the ground through fifth floors, followed by 2,350 square feet of medical offices on the sixth and seventh floors. Yevgeniy Rybak’s Brooklyn-based Rybak Architects is the architect of record. The 85-foot-wide, 4,483-square-foot property is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in June. The Neptune Avenue stop on the F train is a block away.
The de Blasio administration is planning to launch a request for proposals (RFP) at some point next year in search of a development team to build a senior housing facility at 30 Pike Street, located between Henry and Madison streets on the Lower East Side. The scope of the building has not been revealed, but it will accommodate at least 100 senior residents and will feature an unspecified medical facility, Curbed NY reported. The site can accommodate up to 244,562 square feet of community facility space, which is what senior housing is categorized under. The 37,625-square-foot site is currently occupied a single-story a water supply building. The Department of Environmental Protection will work with the future development team to incorporate the infrastructure into the new building.
Last September, we gave our readers a definitive introduction to the city’s latest urban core, which was then just beginning its skyward ascent. Over the past year, we released dozens of updates regarding the myriad of projects coming to Long Island City, particularly those rising along the streets of the Court Square district. Today YIMBY revisits the growing community, looking at the progress that has been made over the past year, as well as what lies in store in the near future.
Since YIMBY’s previous update in May, the 28-story, 150-unit mixed-use tower under development at 436 Albee Square, in Downtown Brooklyn, has topped out and begun façade installation. The latest photo of the project was posted to the YIMBY Forums by construction photographer Tectonic. The most recent building permits indicate the structure measures 155,100 square feet and stands 310 feet above street level. There will be 23,740 square feet of retail space across the cellar through third floors. The residential units above should average 793 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Yoel Schwimmer is the developer and ODA New York is behind the design. Completion is expected in 2017.
New apartments are rising in the heart of Midwood, and we have a glimpse of the construction thanks to photographer Tectonic.
