YIMBY passed by the site of 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, which is supposed to be a 146-foot-tall residential building. However construction progress remains paused around the halfway mark. The 4,000-square-foot site rests among a number of taller surrounding skyscrapers and would be a modest addition to the neighborhood. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work started nearly two years ago and is planned to, hopefully, top out as a 14-story superstructure with 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes. iX Construction is the general contractor.
Construction has topped out at 249 East 50th Street, a 15-story residential building in Turtle Bay, Manhattan. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by Tun Kyaw, the building stands 151 feet tall and will span 50,000 feet.
Permits have been filed for a 23-story hotel at 777 Eighth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen, Manhattan.

Also within walking distance is Times Square and the Port Authority transit hub. McSam Hotel Group under the TSGL 8th Avenue LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
