A new partially-affordable housing project is getting ready to open at 10 Halletts Point, in Astoria, Queens. The 22-story mixed-use complex is rising at 26-01 1st Street, positioned right on the waterfront, across from Manhattan’s Yorkville. This is the first of a seven-building mega-development led by the Durst Organization to reinvigorate the Halletts Point peninsula. Once complete, the entirety will yield 2.4 million square feet of space and create 2,400 rental units, 480 of which will be affordable.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story mixed-used building at 105-25 65th Road, in Forest Hills, Queens. The site is seven blocks away from the 67th Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. Flushing Meadows Corona Park is six blocks to the east, with Meadow Lake nearby. FR Development LLC will be responsible for the project.
Permits have been filed for a six-story residential building at 2250 Clarendon Road, in the Ditmas Park neighborhood of Brooklyn. The site is nine blocks East of Beverly Road subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains, and eleven blocks West of the Beverly Road subway station, serviced by the Q trains. Candor Clarendon Holdings LLC is behind the applications.
Among New York City’s current skyscrapers under construction, none comes closer to supertall status without actually reaching it than 220 Central Park South, which stands 950 feet to its rooftop. Despite imminent overshadowing by Central Park Tower, which will rise 600 feet taller, it is still an impressive addition to the Midtown Manhattan skyline. Today, YIMBY has an update on exterior progress, which is nearing completion, even as the building’s actual prominence is already on the decline.
As the largest planned development in the United States inches closer to completion, The Shed at Hudson Yards has announced the first group of commissions to be on display during the 2019 inaugural season. The Shed will be New York City’s first and only arts center dedicated to commissioning, producing, and presenting new work across the performing arts, visual arts, and pop culture areas. The mixed-use space is expected to be open to the public sometime in the spring of 2019.
