The 16-story, 183-room Hilton Garden Inn — located at 29-21 Queens Plaza North, in Long Island City — has opened for business, reports Brownstoner. Construction has been ongoing since 2013, and the building is Long Island City’s 25th hotel.
Per The Real Deal, Raphael Toledano has acquired the six-story, 39-unit rental building at 125 West 16th Street, in southeastern Chelsea, for $41.5 million. The new owner plans to add two stories and 20 units to the top of the building, and the existing structure will also be renovated.

YIMBY first reported that ODA would be designing a tower at 75 Nassau Street last fall, which was followed by news of a height reduction this past March, via the project’s first permits. And now, we have the full reveal for the tower, which is being developed by Lexin Capital.
Construction is starting to pick up in East Harlem, where YIMBY spotted this rendering on the fence at 318 East 112th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenues.
