Permits have been pre-filed for a 16-story mid-rise as part of a larger mega-development at 2926 West 19th Street, Coney Island, Brooklyn, which YIMBY first revealed back in January. The site is five blocks away from the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue subway station, serviced by the D, F, N, and Q trains, and right across the street from a multi-purpose baseball ballpark.
Permits have been filed for a 12-story mixed-use development at 1725 Village Lane, in Far Rockaway, Queens. The site will be a re-imagining of the mostly-abandoned Far Rockaway Shopping Center.
Permits have been filed for a four-story residential building at 99 Conselyea Street, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The site is three blocks away from the Graham Avenue subway station, serviced by the L train, and four blocks away from the Metropolitan Avenue station, serviced by the L and G trains. Cleopatra Realty LLC will be responsible for the development.
The Rafael Viñoly-designed 277 Fifth Avenue, in NoMad, has officially topped out. Our last look at the tower was on December 26th, 2017, when we were given a tour of the sales gallery and the 46th floor, which at that time, was the highest level. With the superstructure now spanning its full 55 stories, about twenty floors of cladding remain before the exterior is complete.
New renderings have been exclusively revealed to YIMBY for the transformation of 165 Mercer Street, in SoHo. The historic building was constructed between 1870 and 1871 under design by Henry Fernbach, and faithfully served the city as a parking garage since 1921. However, as we reported in September of 2016, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved changes for the site to undergo a conversion to office and retail use, which will be accompanied by a new penthouse level, as well.
