Beach Green Dunes Phase II has officially broken ground, representing the city’s continued investment to rehabilitate Far Rockaway following the devastation of Hurricane Sandy. The development will contain 127 rental units, which will be designated affordable housing for very low, low, and moderate income residents. The project will also contain 3,000 square feet of retail area and a parking structure designed to accommodate 50 motor vehicles.
Concrete has reached the third floor at 805 Washington Heights, a residential project rising in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. The building is now expected to become a nine-story residential, part of a revision to the permits made in April of this year. This comes after the permits reflected downsizing to six stories when we reported on it in October. Levi Balkany of Happy Living Development is responsible for the applications.
Permits have been filed for a five-story mixed-use building at 88 Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. The site is located three blocks away from the Myrtle-Willoughby Avenue subway station, serviced by the G train. The Flushing Avenue subway station in nine blocks away, serviced by the J, M, and Z trains. Jose Jorge is listed as responsible for the development.
There’s a new skyscraper to look forward to in NoMad, Manhattan. Permits have been approved for the construction of the Rockefeller Group’s 639-foot-tall building at 30 East 29th Street. This news comes nearly four months after YIMBY obtained the building’s early renderings, with design by CetraRuddy.
Progress is moving forward on a new rental building in the heart of Midtown. After topping out in November 2017, 1050 Sixth Avenue’s glass and façade installation have now reached halfway up. The 24-story building is rising half a block away from Bryant Park. Skyline Developers is responsible for the project.
