The Hallets Point megaproject is finally moving forward on the Astoria waterfront: a new building application has been filed for a 22-story mixed use complex at 26-01 1st Street.
Slate Property Group is planning to develop a seven-story, 126-rental-unit mixed-use building from the existing single-story warehouse at 432 Rodney Street, in central Williamsburg. The 99,140 square-foot building will feature nearly 13,950 square feet of retail on the ground floor, and Aufgang Architects is designing.
YIMBY sat down with Bjarke Ingels to talk about his firm’s design for 200 Greenwich Street, aka Two World Trade Center. Despite public outcry following the change from the Norman Foster version of the tower, BIG’s innovative and forward-thinking building will truly respond to the human needs of its tenants, while also punctuating the Downtown skyline with a 1,340-foot take on a classic ziggurat. We’ve also obtained a few additional renderings of the soon-to-be icon’s impact on the cityscape.
Last year, All Year Management bought a warehouse at 41-21 28th Street in Long Island City for $17,000,000, and now YIMBY has the first look at the 16-story residential tower rising in its place between the Queensboro Bridge and 41st Avenue.
A piece of prime Williamsburg real estate at 150 North 12th Street has sat vacant, with only a foundation laid, since the recession swept away construction financing in 2008. But in the last few months, construction has re-started, and now YIMBY has a rendering for the seven-story rental building planned across the street from McCarren Park.
