Late last year, YIMBY reported on permits for a small three-story, two-unit residential project at 21-11 74th Street, located on the western end of East Elmhurst. Now, permits have recently been amended to build a structure with three units. The building will measure 3,315 square feet in total, and full-floor units will average 1,105 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Konstantine Drakopoulos is the property owner and Queens-based Gerald Caliendo is the architect of record. The site’s former 1.5-story home was demolished last year.
Over a year ago, YIMBY reported on schematic drawings for a 33-story, 69-unit mixed-use tower at 172 Madison Avenue, in Midtown East, and earlier this year, we revealed renderings of the Karl Fischer-designed building. Construction kicked off last spring and now the structure is 14 stories above street level, courtesy of photos by Tectonic. Although not apparent, glass installation has also begun. The building’s ground floor will feature 4,361 square feet of retail space, and condo units will average 1,795 square feet apiece. Tessler Development is developing and completion is expected in 2016.

Crain’s reported on the site’s groundbreaking last December, and now the building is five stories above street level, per photos by Tectonic. Ground-floor retail space will measure 8,324 square feet and the building’s rental units will average 925 square feet apiece. COOKFOX Architects is designing, and completion is expected in 2017.
