Updated plans have been released for a mixed-use project coming to 8-29 Astoria Boulevard, in Western Astoria, which YIMBY previously reported on in May of 2016. Plans call for the new structure to to rise a total of 58 feet, divided between six stories.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story commercial building at 25-41 Borden Avenue, in Hunters Point, Queens. The site is just a few blocks away from a rail yard that functionally separates the area from the rest of the neighborhood. The Hunters Point Avenue subway station is five blocks away, serviced by the 7 train. Eight blocks away is the 21st Street Subway Station, serviced by the G trains. The site is right by the Newtown Creek, which marks Queens’ border with Brooklyn. An anonymous LLC is behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a six-story medical facility at 505 West 168th Street, in Washington Heights, Manhattan. The site is two blocks away from the 168th Street Subway Station, serviced by the 1, A, and C trains. Marino Torres MD is listed as the owner. Mr. Torres MD is a board certified pediatrics professional working at New York Presbyterian. NYP owns a multi-block hospital structure right next to the subway station. The permit does not specify a connection with the hospital, but it seems inevitable.
Permits have been filed for a ten-story residential building at 3187 Grand Concourse in Norwood, The Bronx. Four blocks away is the Mosholu Parkway Subway Station, serviced by the 4 train. Five blocks away is the Bedford Park Boulevard Station, serviced by the B and D trains. Owner Nicolas Benhamou will be responsible for the project.
Today, YIMBY has the first close-up of 90 Morton Street’s ongoing transformation, in the West Village. The building is five blocks away from the Houston Street Subway Station, and six blocks from the West 4th Street Subway Station, putting it near most every subway line, or more exactly, the A, B, C, D, E, F, M, and 1 trains. Brack Capital Real Estate is behind the condominium conversion and expansion of the original pre-war structure, and Reuveni Real Estate will be handling sales, according to a new teaser website.
