Of all the developments currently under construction in New York City, none have been in the making for longer than Essex Crossing, which is rising on the site of several long-vacant lots on the Lower East Side. With the master-plan’s first new buildings just about fully complete, YIMBY sat down with Charles Bendit of Taconic, and asked the co-CEO ten questions about the New York City real estate market.

Permits have been filed for a seven-story commercial building at 25-41 Borden Avenue, in Hunters Point, Queens.

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.

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.
