Permits have been filed for a new eight-story residential building at 91-01 Whitney Avenue, in Flushing, Queens. The site is two blocks away from the 90th Street-Elmhurst Avenue subway station, serviced by the 7 train. The surrounding neighborhood is predominantly residential to the south, with a couple dozen blocks of commercial space to the east, along Roosevelt Avenue and 37th Avenue.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story school in Greenwood, Brooklyn. The site is a ten-minute walk to the D, G, N, R, and W trains at Ninth Street and Fourth Avenue. The Brooklyn-based firm Second Development Services will be responsible for building the project.
The future site of the FXFOWLE-designed 77 Greenwich Street, a.k.a 42 Trinity Place, has seen substantial progress since YIMBY last checked in on what will eventually become a 40-story and 500-foot tall residential building, back when permits were filed in September of 2016. Demolition of the site’s former occupants is now complete, and excavation is well underway.
The last time YIMBY checked in on 42 Crosby Street, in SoHo, we reported on the reveal of the project’s renderings, back in September of 2014. Now, construction on the Selldorf Architects-designed building has wrapped, and the final result effectively manages a contextual merger of contemporary stylings with historic surrounds.
Earlier this week, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story building at 962 Bushwick Avenue, in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Now, filings have been submitted on the other side of Calvary and Saint Cyprian’s Church, at 972 Bushwick Avenue, by the same development team.
