Property owner Ruo Ruo Yang has filed applications for a seven-story, eight-unit residential building at 37-34 89th Street, in Jackson Heights, right around the corner from the 7 train’s stop at 90th Street and Elmhurst Avenue. The building will total 8,595 square feet, and units will average 1,074 square feet apiece. Chang Hwa Tan’s Flushing-based Tan Architect is designing, and permits were filed earlier this month to demolish an existing two-story home.
Over a year ago, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story, 72-key mixed-use hotel project at 822 Fourth Avenue, in Greenwood, four blocks south of the R train’s stop on 25th Street. Yesterday, the building was resubmitted to the DOB with slight downward revisions, probably due to zoning restrictions. Sunset Park-based Signature Management Enterprises is still the developer, and the building will now rise eight stories and have 62 hotel rooms. Healthcare facilities will span 18,000 square feet across floors two through four, and Chi F. Lau is the architect of record.
In February, glassy renderings surfaced for a 12-story apartment building at 29 Clay Street in Greenpoint. Now the project has taken one more step toward reality with a new building application for a 60-unit development on the property between Manhattan Avenue and Franklin Street.
In mid-2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a 34-story, 78-unit residential building at 1711-1717 First Avenue/360 East 89th Street, on the Upper East Side, and then we revealed renderings of the project later that year. Now, foundation work is well underway, according to DNAinfo, and a crane can be seen operating on-site. Dubbed Citizen360, the building will feature condominiums ranging from one- to four-bedrooms, as well as 3,558 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Anbau Enterprises is developing, SHoP Architects is designing, and occupancy is expected by the spring of 2017.

According to LI Herald, the shopping center is being dubbed Green Acres Commons, and Ashley Furniture HomeStore, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, Burlington Coat Factory, Dick’s Sporting Goods, as well as other tenants, are expected to lease spaces when it opens in the fall of 2016.
