Fresh renderings from local architect Eric Safyan have a revealed a new, mixed-use complex in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The illustrations are included in rezoning proposals presented to New York City’s Department of City Planning to facilitate the construction of a large, two-building development at 1050 Pacific Street.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story residential building at 30-48 Crescent Street in Astoria, Queens. The site is four blocks away from the 30th Avenue subway station, serviced by the N and W trains. D. Casamento & Sons Inc. is listed as behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 132-77 Metropolitan Avenue, in Kew Gardens, Queens. The site is located right across from the Jamaica Van Wyck subway station, serviced by the E trains, and one stop away from the connection to the JFK air train. Metro Garden LLC will be responsible for the development.
At the beginning of 2018, One Vanderbilt Avenue was only just rising above its retail podium. While it was as wide as it would ever be, it was hard to imagine the inevitable future height that the Midtown has already reached. When complete, the supertall will be the fourth tallest skyscraper in New York City, competing with the Billionaires Row and FiDi Supertalls, and now it’s finally piercing the Midtown plateau. Work is about three or four floors below the 808-foot-tall Metlife building, meaning One Vanderbilt is well past half its full height of 1,401 feet. Hines and SL Green are responsible for the development.
Permits for 335 West 35th Street were filed as far back as 2013, and just now we’re finally getting a first look at what’s to come from the conversion. The Chen family, most prominent for the T.F. Chen Cultural Center, is planning to develop a twelve-story mixed-use project by refurbishing an existing Midtown office building. The site is just a few blocks away from Madison Square Garden and its myriad of transit and dining options. This will be developed under the company name New Tent LLC.
