A ground-breaking ceremony was held last week for the first phase of a mixed-use project at 700 Jackson Street, located on two blocks between 6th and 8th streets in Hoboken, N.J. The first phase will see the construction of a single-story, 6,835-square-foot community gymnasium along Jackson Street, between 6th and 7th streets, and public park space across both blocks. Significant infrastructure work will also be done as part of the first phase, expected to be complete by 2019, Jersey Digs reported.
It has been over five months since we last checked in on the progress of 3 World Trade Center. At the end of August, the glass was nearly halfway up the supertall tower. Since then, it has come much closer to the top.
On Saturday, four concrete pumps descended on a web of rebar to conduct the first pour for the foundation of One Vanderbilt, a 58-story, 1.7-million-square-foot commercial tower under construction adjacent to Grand Central Terminal in Midtown East. The progress can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits have the 1,401-foot-tall tower measuring 1,755,814 square feet.
Construction is well underway on the façade and interiors of the five-story, 32-unit residential project under development at 280 St. Marks Avenue, in Prospect Heights. The latest progress on the structure was seen on a hard-hat tour attended by Commercial Observer. The latest building permits have the new building measuring 72,338 square feet and rising 50 feet to its main roof.
Rosyln Heights, N.Y.-based Adee Group has filed applications three three-story, two-family houses at 916-920 Wilcox Avenue, in the Throggs Neck section of the East Bronx. The buildings will measure between 4,155 and 4,285 square feet. Across all three, the residential units should average a family-size 1,326 square feet apiece. There will also be eight off-street parking spaces between the buildings, two of which will be housed in a garage. Gerald J. Caliendo’s Briarwood-based firm is the architect of record. The 7,089-square-foot plot is currently occupied by a two-story house. Demolition permits were filed in August of last year.
