In May, YIMBY revealed partial renderings of Extell’s planned residential tower at 250 South Street, and at the time, DOB filings indicated it was to stand 56 stories, spanning 939,850 square feet. Now, according to DNAinfo, permits show a tower closer to the initially proposed building, standing 68 stories and 800 feet tall, and measuring 1,105,386 square feet. The project now includes 802 residential units, and 25,516 square feet of retail space on the ground floor.
Back in 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of Heatherwood Communities’ planned 58-story, 477-unit residential tower at 42-12 28th Street, in Long Island City, at the same time excavation was starting. Now, the project is up to its tenth floor, according to The Court Square Blog. Glass installation has also started, and completion of the tower, dubbed 28 On 28th, is expected in 2017. Goldstein Hill & West is the architect, and $154 million in financing was provided by PNC Bank in May.
Ocean Avenue is lined with large, detached single-family homes on deep lots, making it incredibly attractive to developers who want to construct mid-rise apartment buildings in low-slung sections of southern Brooklyn.

Jonathan Kushner’s KRE Group has received a $40 million tax break for their planned 17-story, 397-unit mixed-use building planned at 515 Marin Boulevard, in Jersey City’s Hamilton Park neighborhood.

The site is currently a parking lot, and groundbreaking is expected next month for an August 2017 completion, according to The Jersey Journal.
