Permits were filed during late January for a nine-story mixed-use building at 132-27 41st Road in Flushing, Queens. Today, YIMBY has a first look at the design of “Century Tower”, thanks to the developers, NY Excelsior Development. The renderings show a clean minimalist façade with fourteen balconies, and two outdoor terraces on the rooftop, divided by a brick wall. The façade will be composed of traditional brick, with terracotta feature panels covering a fifth of the building’s front. The ground floor will have aluminum frames around separate entrances for residents and the medical offices.

Park Avenue is an iconic fixture of Manhattan, and its legacy and awe-inspiring scale have influenced city planning across the globe. While many buildings are now planned or rising along adjacent blocks, there is one aspect of the street that has remained antiquated. In fact, the medians in its center have not been significantly altered in a century. Fisher Brothers rightfully believes this should be reconsidered, and after opening an architectural competition “Beyond the Centerline” last November, winners have been chosen by both a popular vote and a professional jury for re-imagining the thoroughfare for the 21st century.
The city of Newark is making slow but steady progress towards adding new urban infill, including large low-slung developments. One such example is 110 Edison Place, inside the city’s downtown area. Edison Properties purchased the building from North Caldwell-based Berkowitz Company for $7 million, allowing them to build nearly half a million square feet of new office space.
