Another day, another huge Long Island City tower. Plans were filed Saturday for a 28-story mixed-use tower designed by SHoP Architects at 5-49 46th Avenue, on the waterfront in the Hunters Point section of the neighborhood.
In May, YIMBY reported on filings for a 21-story, 48-unit condominium building at 302 East 96th Street, on the northern edge of the Upper East Side. Now Curbed has a rendering of the mixed-use project, which is being developed by Wonder Works Construction, Fimida Enterprises and Mink Development. Amended in June, filings now show the building measuring 75,395 square feet, and a 2,185 square-foot retail portion is planned. Units will average 1,525 square feet, and Karl Fischer is designing. Demolition filings for the existing three-story parking structure were filed in April.
Construction has begun to expand the existing four-story, single-unit residential building at 222 East 7th Street, in the East Village, into a six-story, eight-unit structure, EV Grieve reports. Residences will average 1,100 square feet, and Edward Guterman is the applicant of record on filings. Steven Salvesen is the property owner, and the completion date is currently unknown.
Robert Martin Company plans to build a 110,000 square-foot mixed-use building on the vacant parcel of land at 35 Valley Avenue, in Westchester County’s Elmsford. The building will have 96 market-rate units, and 11,500 square feet of retail will be located on the ground floor. The project is in the process of acquiring tax exemptions, according to Westfair Business. In 2012, a single-story structure was removed.
Last September, YIMBY revealed a new design for 125 Greenwich Street, a supertall planned for the corner of Thames and Greenwich Streets, just across from the new World Trade Center. Now, we have updated images of the project, which has seen significant modifications since those images were released; nevertheless, the Rafael Viñoly-designed building will still stand well over 1,000 feet in height, and is set to become Manhattan’s tallest residential tower south of 57th Street.
