Construction has started for an eleven-story Marriott hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport, in Queens. The 270,000-square foot structure will create 540 rooms, along with 4,000 square feet of meeting space, a lounge, a drinking establishment, offices, a fitness center, and parking. Gene Kaufman Architects will be responsible for the exterior design, as well as the interiors, public spaces, and guest rooms.
Earlier this week, YIMBY reported on filings for a nine-story mixed-use building at 1182 Woodycrest Avenue. Now, a first look at the building’s elevation reveals yet more information about the project. The development is located in the Highbridge neighborhood of The Bronx, just five blocks away from the 4 train’s 167th Street subway station. The project is being co-developed by Crown Architecture and Consulting LLC.
Extell’s assemblage between East 79th and East 80th Streets in Yorkville, Manhattan, is inching closer to reality, with demolition permits now pulled for the bulk of the extant structures. The mixed-use, residential buildings set to meet the wrecking ball include addresses 1514 though 1528 First Avenue.
Permits have been filed for a four-story school at 1846 West 1846 West 13th Street, in Gravesend, Brooklyn. The facility will be an addition to the existing space at P.S. 97, known as The Highlawn. The site is six blocks away from the 25th Avenue subway station, serviced by the D and F trains, and two stops away from Coney Island. The NYC School Construction Authority will be responsible for the development.
Construction is well underway for what will eventually become the Financial District’s tallest residential tower, a 64-story supertall at 45 Broad Street. Thanks to a reader providing an overview photograph, we can see that trucks are currently removing debris from the site, and reports indicate that concrete trucks are also moving in and out, indicating that excavation is now in full swing. Drilling for the foundational piers has already started. Pizzarotti LLC is responsible for building and developing the tower, along with Madison Equities and AMS Acquisitions.
