Demolition work has stalled at 570 Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn, the site of a proposed 550-foot-tall skyscraper designed by Hill West Architects and developed by Slate Property Group. Scaffolding and blue netting still shroud the main façade of the existing building, and it appears that little progress has been made since YIMBY’s January visit. As planned, the new development would yield a mixture of market-rate apartments, affordable housing, retail, and small-scale office space.
Workers have begun pouring the foundations for 23-20 Jackson Avenue, a nine-story mixed-use hotel in Long Island City, Queens. Designed by KSQ Architects and developed by The Vorea Group, the corner property will yield 85,851 square feet of retail, offices, and a 72-room hotel operated by San Francisco-based hotelier Sonder Corp.
