Façade work is getting close to completion on the United Arab Emirates consulate at 315 East 46th Street in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. The 145-foot-tall, nine-story reinforced concrete structure is designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill, developed by Fisher Brothers, and is being built by Plaza Construction. The topped-out edifice is located just up the street from the future consulate of the Republic of Turkey.
Construction could soon break ground on a 16-story residential building in Rego Park, Queens, following the release of new renderings from RJ Capital Holdings. The developer, which has filed proposals under the name Trylon LLC, is now waiting on approvals from the Department of City Planning to begin an exhaustive public review process.
Permits have been filed for a six-story mixed-use building at 2700 Church Avenue in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Yanky Geldzahler under the 2700 Church Realty LLC is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Permits have been filed for a seven-story mixed-use building at 2744 Atlantic Avenue in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn.

Dianping Chen is listed as the owner behind the applications.
Exterior work is nearing completion on the Turkevi Center, a 563-foot-tall mixed-use skyscraper at 821 First Avenue in the Midtown East neighborhood of Turtle Bay. Only a few minor touches remain to be completed on the podium of the 35-story tower, which is designed by Perkins Eastman and will serve as the consulate for the Republic of Turkey.
