Permits were filed for a new four-story apartment building at 2261 Watson Avenue in Unionport, The Bronx. The site is located across from Havemeyer Playground and sits near East 177th Street and the Cross Bronx Expressway. The closest subway station is Parkchester on the 6 train. There will be a total of eight dwellings within the 7,120-square-foot masonry structure. Each one will be just under 900 square feet, so they will most likely be rentals. The building will eventually rise 40 feet when completed.
On the heels of the topping-out of The XI’s second tower, YIMBY attended the official ceremony for the milestone hosted by the project’s architect Bjarke Ingels, offering a first look at the sweeping views from the top of the complex. The 908,250-square-foot development stands next to the High Line in Chelsea and is now the tallest set of buildings in the neighborhood. The first 30-story skyscraper sitting closer to the Hudson River reached the 402-foot-tall roof parapet last year. The shorter 20-story, 300-foot-tall sibling climbed to its pinnacle just a couple weeks ago. HFZ Capital Group is the developer of the project. Omnibuild is in charge of constructing this new icon for New York City.
New plans for 310 East 86th Street will see the condominium project nearly double in size. Located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Yorkville between First and Second Avenues, and only steps away from the Q and R trains at the 86th Street subway station, the site made news recently after Izaki Group Investments purchased and acquired three apartment buildings from Extell.
Staten Island’s Garibaldi-Meucci Museum has proposed the installation of a new 34-foot monument on the western edge of the property. Titled “Venzia New York,” the new sculpture would rise from a 20-foot by 20-foot concrete base accompanied by a new concrete walkway, a dedicated plaque, and additional benches in the museum’s front lawn.
Permits have been filed for a nine-story mixed-use residential and commercial building at 13-28 Central Avenue in Far Rockaway, Queens. The 42,758-square foot lot is located at the intersection of Central Avenue and Nameoke Street. The proposed scope for the new project is around 195,000 square feet. The site is close to the Far Rockaway – Mott Avenue subway station at the end of the A line. Ericka Keller-Wala of Brisa MPB Community Square LLC is listed as the owner of the site. Paul Castrucci Architect is listed as the designer, while William Vitacco Associates, LTD filed the permits.
