Façade installation is currently underway at 47-28 11th Street, in Long Island City, where Kora Developers is building a seven-story, 21-unit mixed-use building, per The Court Square Blog. Dubbed The Corner, the 19,000 square-foot building will include a small 216 square-foot retail unit on the ground floor. Zproekt is designing, and completion is expected this fall.
YIMBY previously brought you preliminary plans for the Witkoff-led redevelopment of the Helmsley Park Lane, at 36 Central Park South, and followed up with a post indicating that Richard Rodgers would be the architect. We have now obtained the first official renderings of the project, showing its exteriors, and while YIMBY has been unable to obtain confirmation regarding the architect, we strongly suspect it is now Rafael Vinoly. Documents also indicate the building will stand 1,200 feet tall, making it one of the tallest in the city.
The current crop of skyscrapers under construction in Manhattan extend from the upper reaches of the Upper East Side all the way down to the tip of the Financial District, and in the very middle lies 45 East 22nd Street, just to the west of Park Avenue South.
On the corner of 21st Street and 31st Avenue in Astoria, a vacant lot at 21-03 31st Avenue may sprout a six-story apartment building, after Brownstoner reported that it sold for $2,600,000 last September.
The development site spanning 92-94 Fulton Street, in the Financial District, has again traded hands, this time with The Lightstone Group acquiring the properties for $23.25 million. The previous owner, Fisher Brothers, paid $10 million for the site in June 2014 and had filed applications for a 16-story residential building. Lightstone’s plans have yet to be disclosed, but previous proposals revealed by YIMBY show the site’s significant potential.
