Early last year, crews demolished the single-story warehouse building at 21-16 44th Drive, in Long Island City, and then posted a mysterious rendering, but later removed it. It appears the site has changed hands now that The Court Square Blog spotted pre-filings for an eight-story mixed-use building by the developer Amsterdam Hospitality. Retail space will be located in the cellar and ground floors, and a 70-key hotel will span the building’s four lower stories. Above, there will be 29 apartments topped by a roof deck.
Sammy Aranbayev, operating under an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a three-story, 12-unit residential building at 2325-2335 Bath Avenue, in Bath Beach, six blocks from the D train’s Bay Parkway stop. The building will measure 13,170 square feet, which means units will average nearly 1,100 square feet. New Jersey-based Schneider Associates is the applicant of record, and the existing auto-body repair shop was filed for demolition in July.
Last week, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new building coming to 70 Atlantic Avenue, in Cobble Hill, at a site formerly known as 339 Hicks Street. It currently houses a building for Long Island College Hospital, but that will soon be demolished to make way for an NYU Langone Ambulatory Care Clinic, which we can now reveal.
Three buildings are on the rise at 760, 764 and 767a Bergen Street between Grand and Washington Avenues, on one of the busiest blocks for new construction in the Crown and Prospect Heights borderlands.
As the Rabsky Group plans to rezone an industrial swath of Williamsburg’s Broadway Triangle for a huge residential development, other landlords are converting the area’s commercial buildings to apartments and retail.
