Joseph Rubin of Westmount Equities has submitted permits for the construction of a new seven-story residential building in Flatbush, Brooklyn. The property will replace an existing one-story commercial property at 1173 Rogers Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a six-story hotel at 1275 Pugsley Avenue in The Bronx’s Parkchester neighborhood. Located between Westchester Avenue and East 177th Street, the interior site is situated close to the Cross Bronx Expressway. Less than two blocks east is the Parkchester subway station, and two blocks to the west is the Castle Hill Avenue Station, both of which are stops on the 6 train. Jai Patel of Pride Lodging LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
A 510-foot-tall mixed-use tower designed by Gene Kaufman Architect was proposed for 265-267 Broadway a few years ago, and recently YIMBY checked in for an update on progress, or lack thereof. The Roe Corporation is the developer for the 144,244 square foot site, which is expected to rise a decent height above the surrounding Lower Manhattan skyline once complete. However, with no demolition yet evident, it appears this development may be as dead as a Thanksgiving turkey.
Permits have been filed for a new 22-story commercial building at 124 East 14th Street, in Manhattan’s East Village. The site is the former retail space of the P.C. Richard & Son appliance shop, which closed their two-story, 20,000-square-foot location last winter. Since 2015, the city’s Economic Development Corp. has been soliciting proposals to redevelop the prime city-owned site, particularly those that include new office space for up and coming business tenants in creative and tech industries in the neighborhood.
New renderings offer another look for Ismael Leyva’s forthcoming mixed-use development in Flushing, Queens. Located at 144-74 Northern Boulevard, the seven-story building is currently under construction with completion expected by the fourth quarter of 2019.
