Most of the progress so far at Hudson Yards has been on the eastern edge of the site, with 30 Hudson Yards the only tower that’s currently above ground level. But with the decking-over of the Eastern Yards now wrapped-up, YIMBY reader ILNY took the following photos showing that work is finally about to begin on 15 Hudson Yards.
One of the last few handsome, early 20th century factories on Williamsburg’s Northside will become luxury rentals. Greenpoint-based developer Eser Realty plans to convert the four-story brick building at 28-46 Roebling Street to 58 apartments, adding a fifth floor in the process, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the project, which is about to begin construction.
Yet another hole in the Bushwick landscape will be filled by new residential construction. Developer Louis Handler, doing business as Willtrout Realty, is planning a five-story apartment project at 963 Willoughby Avenue, on an abandoned lot near the elevated M train tracks on Myrtle Avenue.
Earlier this month, YIMBY brought you news of Saint Joseph’s Medical Center’s plans to develop a supportive housing building at 108-110 Port Richmond Avenue, on Staten Island’s North Shore. A rendering has now surfaced of the project, per DNAinfo, and the structure will hold 50 supportive housing units for the mentally ill, and an additional 27 affordable units. Edelman Sultan Knox Wood Architects is designing, and an existing building must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, Silverstein Properties paid roughy $100 million for a car dealership at 520 West 41st Street, aka 514 Eleventh Avenue, in Midtown West.

Although the proposed 1.685 million square-foot building has yet to be approved, Curbed reports demolition of the existing low-rise commercial building has begun.
