A new 21-story high-rise is expected to come to Jamaica, as reported by YIMBY yesterday. This is not uncommon for the Queens neighborhood, but 153-19 Jamaica Avenue will be different, and today we have the first renderings for the building. BFC Partners has told YIMBY that all 139 units of the project will let at affordable housing rates. The facilities will also include supportive facilities, managed by New Destiny Housing.
Permits have been filed for a five-story residential building at 55-40 97th Place in Corona, Queens. The site is nine blocks away from the Woodhaven Boulevard subway station, serviced by the E, M, and R trains. In the opposite direction is the expansive Flushing Meadows Corona Park, home to the Queens Museum, Zoo, a science center, and stadiums for tennis and baseball.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 41 Port Richmond Avenue in Elm Park, Staten Island. The site is distant from the Staten Island Railway, though a bus stop is located on the same block. AVL Realty is listed as responsible for the development.
One after another, each remaining vacant lot along the nearly 1.5 mile-long High Line is giving rise to some of the most architecturally innovative design across the Five Boroughs. Each of the new buildings has their own identity and aesthetics, jostling to be the next spectacle in West Chelsea. One long-awaited and highly anticipated project is The Fitzroy, at 514 West 24th Street, designed by Roman and Williams and developed by a partnership between JDS Development and Largo Investments. Now, the scaffolding has come down, revealing what hopefully won’t be a once-in-a-lifetime revival of Art Deco stylings, built for contemporary sensibilities.
