Late last year, YIMBY reported on applications for a 30-story, 118-key hotel at 306 West 40th Street, right across from Port Authority, in Midtown West. Now new filings have been submitted for a slightly larger building, rising 36 stories and containing 120 hotel rooms. The structure will measure 44,430 square feet in total, which is an increase by nearly 200 square feet from the old proposal. The project also appears to have changed hands, and Brian Law, operating as NYC One Holding LLC, is the developer. Noel Wong’s Long Island-based ADB Associates is the applicant of record, and an existing four-story building must first be demolished.
Property owner Solomon Schwimmer has filed applications for a seven-story, 45-unit residential building at 242-248 Newkirk Avenue, in southern Kensington, three blocks from the F train’s stop at 18th Avenue. The building will measure 30,065 square feet, which means units will average just 668 square feet, indicative of rentals. Rego Park-based Diego Aguilera is the architect of record. A majority of the site is vacant, but the two-story house at 248 Newkirk must first be demolished.
Faye Levesque has filed applications for a seven-story, 20-unit mixed-use building at 36-31 31st Street, in northern Long Island City, a stone’s throw away from the N and Q trains’ stop at 36th Avenue. The building will measure 16,342 square feet in total, which includes 1,202 square feet for retail space on the ground floor. The residential units will spread across the building’s remaining space, averaging 757 square feet each. New Jersey-based T.F. Cusanelli and Filletti Architects is the applicant of record, and an existing two-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Brooklyn-based Boaz Gilad has filed applications for a seven-story, 21-unit residential building at 925 Atlantic Avenue, in southern Clinton Hill, located two blocks from the Clinton – Washington Avenues stop on the C train. The building will measure 17,237 square feet in total, and units will average 820 square feet apiece. Upper West Side-based Feingold & Gregory Architects is the applicant of record, and an existing single-story warehouse must first be demolished.
Caerus Group is reportedly partnering with an undisclosed university to build an eight-story, 150-dorm-unit mixed-use building at 206-212 Wadsworth Avenue, in northern Washington Heights, three blocks from the 181st Street stop on the 1 train. The building will measure 105,000 square feet, and a Baptist church is planning to relocate to space on the ground floor. The existing three-story church will be demolished. If the university and developer can’t reach a deal, 80 residential units are planned, according to The Real Deal.
