Earlier today, Gamma Real Estate secured approval from the Board of Standards and Appeals to continue with construction of the Foster + Partners designed residential tower that will rise over 800 feet above its surrounding context, at 3 Sutton Place. Located just south of the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge on East 58th Street between Sutton Place South and 1st Avenue, and only a stone’s throw away from the East River, the project has continued to stir controversy and disapproval from local NIMBYs, who have been attacking the plans since renderings were revealed back in December 2015.
New Rochelle‘s Industrial Development Agency will consider a new 23-story project located at 277 North Avenue. The tower will include a mix of market rate and affordable rental units above lower-level retail and an adjacent enclosed parking structure.
Permits were first filed for a mixed-use building by King’s USA Group at 70-40 45th Avenue in Elmhurst, Queens back in 2016. Now, new applications show a major update. The site is located along the major residential Queens Boulevard thoroughfare. Eight blocks away is the Roosevelt Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7, E, F, M, and R trains.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 1819 Sedgwick Avenue in Morris Heights, The Bronx. The site is a block away from the Morris Heights subway station, serviced by Metro-North. The 176th Street subway station on the 4 train is 11 blocks away, and the 175th Street subway station is four blocks further, serviced by D trains. Gabriel & Juliet Inc. is listed as responsible for the development.
The rising skyscraper at 180 East 88th Street is nearing its full height. The tower now stands 27 stories above ground, four short of its eventual apex 31 floors above street level. Once complete, the building will be the tallest on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street. The neighborhood is finally getting a taste of the high-rise residential trend sweeping the rest of the Five Boroughs thanks to developer DDG.
