The Landmarks Preservation Commission has approved a revised design by Todd Zwigard Architects for the Hamilton Theater, at 3560 Broadway, in Harlem. YIMBY first saw renderings for the project on Halloween of this year. The site will be repurposed for commercial-retail and office space within the neo-Renaissance theater, with the hope of revitalizing its prominence in the neighborhood.
SHoP Architects has submitted applications for a major new project at 1508 Coney Island Avenue, in Midwood, Brooklyn. The 10-story mixed-use high-rise will be situated on the major commercial thoroughfare of the area. Eight blocks away is the Avenue M Subway Station, serviced by the Q trains. It should be noted that the project is not close the Coney Island beach boardwalk, which is over four miles away.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 30-75 32nd Street, in Astoria, Queens. The site is three blocks away from the 30th Avenue Subway Station, serviced by the N and W trains. Twelve blocks West is the East River, accessible through Socrates Sculpture Park. Marando Properties will be responsible for the development.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a five-story residential building at 132-47 Avery Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The site sits two blocks away from the Queens Botanical Garden, part of Flushing Meadows Corona Park, a cultural focal point for the borough. The Main Street Subway Station is nine blocks away, last stop for the 7 train in Queens.
The last time YIMBY reported on progress at 66 Hudson Boulevard was back in September of 2016, when Tishman Speyer filed permits for the 64-story office giant, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group/BIG. Now, demolition has wrapped on the site’s former low-slung structures, which means work can officially begin on the spiraling supertall.
