While Jersey City’s ongoing real estate boom has been substantial and transformative, almost the entirety of the action has been devoted to the creation of new residential space, including towers like 99 Hudson Street. But a few blocks north, the city’s first new commercial office building in decades, dubbed Harborside Tower, is getting ready to rise at 136 Greene Street, and renderings have now been released.
YIMBY reported on the permits for 5 New Montrose Avenue earlier this month. Now, Kushner Studios has provided us renderings for their design of the new synagogue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The project will yield 9,500 square feet dedicated to the community facility. The building will be 55 feet tall, replacing an abandoned single-story structure.
Permits have been filed for a 19-story hotel to be built at 157 West 24th Street, between Sixth and Seventh Avenue, in Chelsea. The site is less than a block from a Whole Foods grocery store and has easy access to subway stations along 23rd Street, including the F and M trains on Sixth Avenue, the 1 and 2 trains on Seventh Avenue, and on Eighth Avenue, the C and E trains. Jin Sup An’s 157 West 24th Street Lodging LLC will be responsible for development.
Construction is wrapping on a nine-story affordable housing project, named Excelsior II, at 120 West 169th Street, in The Bronx’s Highbridge. YIMBY covered the rendering reveal for this site in 2014, and the project is expected to be complete before the end of this month. Highbridge Community Development Corporation is responsible for the development, and the Briarwood Organization is handling general contracting.
Permits have been filed by an anonymous LLC for a six-story residential building at 83-68 117th Street, in Kew Gardens, Queens. The development will replace a single-story home of the Tudor Revival style built in 1899. The site is two blocks away from Forest Park, an expansive 165 acres of trees and recreational space. The 121st Street Station is ten blocks away, serviced by the J and Z trains. The Long Island Railroad is also nearby, with the Kew Gardens train station serviced by eight different lines on the LIRR a twelve-block walk.
