Permits have been filed for a new three-story building at 19-14 21st Road, in Ditmars-Steinway, Queens. The site is two blocks away from Astoria Park, along the East River. Though the neighborhood is largely residential, this particular location is just a couple blocks away from several stores, a market, and the P.S. 122 Mamie Fay. AKI Development is responsible for the project.
The last time YIMBY checked in on progress at Brookfield’s Manhattan West, a little over a year ago, construction had just reached above ground level. Now, the superstructure for the first tower, at 401 Ninth Avenue, is closing in on the halfway mark, and in the past few days, glass installation has also begun.
The Upper West Side doesn’t often see major new residential developments, especially of the affordable variety, which is why HPD’s plans for 145 West 108th Street, on behalf of the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, are somewhat surprising. Dattner Architects will be designing, and today, YIMBY has the first images of what the two-building project will look like.
Last April, YIMBY reported on filings for new apartments at 211 West 29th Street, Chelsea. Now Curbed has a rendering of the design by ZH Architects, and updates about the structure, which is being developed by Alex Bernstein. The building is set to be Manhattan’s second-tallest to satisfy passive house standards, which require minimal energy output to maintain comfortable internal temperatures.
Permits have been filed for a new hotel at 2201 Neptune Avenue, in Coney Island. Guests will be ten blocks away from the D, F, N, and Q trains at the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station. The building will be located right on Coney Island Creek, providing guests with views of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. SWA Architecture, a Manhattan-based firm, will design the seven-story structure.
