All Year Management has begun excavation on their planned 16-story, 166-unit mixed-use building at 41-21 28th Street, in Long Island City, reports The Court Square Blog. The Karl Fischer-designed building will measure nearly 127,400 square feet, and a 675 square-foot retail unit is planned on the ground floor. A rough rendering has appeared on-site, and the project is slated for completion in Fall 2016. The site’s former two-story building was demolished late last year.
Property owner Joel Schwartz, of South Side Units LLC, has filed applications for a five-story, eight-unit residential building at the vacant lot at 22 Melrose Street, a stone’s-throw away from the Myrtle Avenue subway stop in northern Bushwick. The building will measure 5,885 square feet, which works out to an average rental-size unit of 735 square feet. KMP Design & Engineering is the applicant of record. The site’s former three-story, three-unit structure was emergency demolished sometime within the past few years.
In October 2014, a 10-story, eight-unit mixed-use building was rising at 179 Suffolk Street, at East Houston Street on the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie reports the nearly 14,500 square-foot structure topped out last Spring, and now façade installation is nearly complete. The first two levels will be occupied by a religious facility, and opening is likely within the coming months. Defonseca Architects is the architect of record.
Last September, YIMBY reported on the first permits for a new 21-story residential tower coming to 117 Livingston Street, which also has an address at 415 Red Hook Lane, in Downtown Brooklyn.

A Key Food at 946 Myrtle Avenue in northeastern Bed Stuy is set to give way to this seven-story apartment building designed by Karl Fischer.
