Coney Island’s housing market struggled in the years following Hurricane Sandy, but the last six months have brought plans for an 86-unit building on West 15th Street and the controversial 40-story tower at Trump Village.
Bushwick has rebounded from decades of abandonment and disinvestment, and developers now flock to a corner of the neighborhood dotted with vacant lots: the Myrtle-Wyckoff stop on the L and M trains. And today, YIMBY has a look at a little five-story rental project under construction at 359 Linden Street, between Wyckoff and Myrtle Avenues.
YIMBY revealed the first renderings of Sky — a 60-story, 1,175-unit rental apartment building at 605 West 42nd Street, in Midtown West — early in 2014, and we chronicled the tower’s construction throughout the same year. Today, the tower is nearly complete, with the exception of the missing glass along the base, and YIMBY can now share two additional renderings. The 1.2-million square-foot tower’s highest point reaches 656 feet above 42nd Street, and its unit count makes it the largest residential building in New York City.
Late last year, YIMBY reported on filings for an 18-story, 26-unit residential building at 219-223 West 77th Street, on the Upper West Side, and now the first partial rendering has surfaced of the Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed building, per Curbed. Naftali Group is developing, and the condo units will consist of two- to five-bedroom configurations, averaging 3,010 square feet apiece. 1,624 square feet of retail space will be located on the ground floor. The developer scored $104 million in construction financing late last month, and the site’s former parking garage was demolished over the summer.
Late last year, a four-story, five-unit residential building topped out at 11-15 47th Road, in Long Island City, and now the building is fully clad, with interior work likely underway. The Court Square Blog reports the building will measure 4,998 square feet, and duplex units will average 1,000 square feet apiece. Amir Zicherman’s Long Island City-based Truffle Building is developing, and Bedford-Stuyvesant-based Charles Diehl is the architect of record.
