New construction permits have been filed for a nine-story residential building at 92-54 Queens Boulevard in Rego Park, Queens. Located between Eliot Avenue and 62nd Avenue, the interior site is situated close to where the Long Island Expressway meets Queens Boulevard. Just over two blocks east is the 63rd Avenue-Rego Park subway station, serviced by the M and R trains. The property is owned by Hai Heng Luo and is listed under Quincy Realty LLC.
Situated to the east of the Sherry Netherland, between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue, 520 Park Avenue, aka 45 East 60th Street, is now receiving its finishing touches. The 64-story and 781-foot-tall residential tower was designed by Robert A. M. Stern Architects, and contains 33 condominiums across nearly 178,000 square feet, averaging around 5,400 square feet apiece. The site sits in Lenox Hill on the Upper East Side, along East 60th Street. Zeckendorf Development, Park Sixty LLC, and Global Holdings Inc. are the developers while SLCE Architects serves as the architect of record. The skyscraper is the 21st-tallest tower currently under construction across the Five Boroughs, and the tallest on the Upper East Side.
Developers will again appear before the Landmarks Preservation Commission seeking approvals to renovate and redesign 550 Madison Avenue. This follows impassioned NIMBY outcry against the original proposal.
Standing across the street from Chelsea Market is a new 270-foot, 18-story office building spanning 130,000 square feet, designed by CetraRuddy Architecture and developed by Rockpoint Group and Atlas Capital. 412 West 15th Street stands between Ninth and Tenth Avenue above the Meatpacking District in Chelsea, with a tall glass facade and dark metal panels featuring textured geometric panels. The project is also connected to two landmarked buildings along West 14th Street that have a combined square footage of around 85,000 square feet.
