YIMBY has word that the 100,000-ton steel order placed for the construction of Related’s Hudson Yards development is now making its way to the Far West Side, and Curbed has photographic evidence. Dubbed “The Shops & Restaurants at Hudson Yards”, the seven-story, 1 million square-foot retail base being built between 10 and 30 Hudson Yards will feature 100 different establishments, and is scheduled to open in 2018.
Last December, YIMBY reported on filings calling for a 12-story, 129-unit mixed-use building at 581 Fourth Avenue, in South Slope, and now Curbed has the Karl Fischer-designed reveal. The Rabsky Group is developing the 78,800 square-foot building, which is planned to have nearly 2,400 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. Multiple low-rise structures must first be demolished before construction begins.
Two very different apartment buildings are inching toward the finish line on East 81st Street between Second and Third Avenues on the Upper East Side.
Joshua Dardashtian, of Pinnacle Real Estate Ventures, has filed applications for two four-story, multi-family residential buildings spanning the lots at 1506-1508 New York Avenue, in East Flatbush, near Brooklyn College. Each building will have nine apartments, averaging only 590 square feet apiece, which is strongly indicative of rentals. Sion Consulting Engineering is the applicant of record, and the site’s former 2.5-story structure was demolished this past May.
Blanca Otavalo, head of Fianzhin Builders Inc., has filed applications for two three-story residential buildings at 678-680 Jamaica Avenue, at the corner of Logan Street in Cypress Hills. Each building will have three residential units, averaging roughly 950 square feet apiece. Flavio Barros’ CB Engineering is the applicant of record, and a single-story garage structure must first be removed.
