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.
Macerich Company, the owner of Green Acres Mall, in Valley Stream, recently broke ground on a two-story, 335,000 square-foot retail complex adjacent to their mall at 750 Sunrise Highway, one block east of the Queens border. 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.
YIMBY has closely followed the construction of the 21-story, 183-key hotel underway at 55 Wythe Avenue, in Williamsburg, and now Brownstoner has news of the project’s topping out. Dubbed The William Vale, Zelig Weiss and Riverside Developers are developing, and Aldo Liberis is designing. A duplex presidential suite will occupy the top two stories, and 20,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space will span the ground floor. Glass façade is now also being installed on the lower half of the structure, and opening is expected in the spring of 2016.
