Over the summer, Yosef Streicher purchased the dilapidated, three-story former police station at 4302 Fourth Avenue, in northern Sunset Park, for $6 million. Now, the owner plans to redevelop the castle-like structure into a community center and a café. According to the Brooklyn Daily, preliminary plans also call for a residential building with 10 units to be built behind the old Precinct on the vacant lot at 364 43rd Street. An architect has not yet been selected, but Ben Herzog is among the front-runners who may eventually design the project. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle has renderings of other designs for the proposed redevelopment, which will eventually have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
The rise of the supertalls has been several years in the making, and One57, 432 Park Avenue, and One World Trade Center have offered a preview of the increasingly gargantuan changes taking place across New York City. But 2016 will mark the start of a new era for the city’s skyline.

One of the biggest names in cancer care is getting even bigger. The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), which has become a large network of centers, both in and outside of New York City, is constructing the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care on the East Side. Located along the FDR Drive between East 73rd Street and East 74th Street, it will not only care for patients, but also have a research element. Thanks to photos from our friend Tectonic, we can see that a fair amount of below-ground work has been accomplished.
