An anonymous Staten Island-based LLC has filed applications for a three-story, 15,587-square-foot children’s daycare facility at 1719 Hylan Boulevard, located on the corner of Garretson Avenue in Dongan Hills, along Staten Island’s East Shore. The center will feature an office, daycare rooms, classrooms, and a playground on the roof, according to the project’s Schedule A. There will be six off-street parking spaces. Staten Island-based Sanna & Loccisano Architects is the architect of record. The 9,590-square-foot site was occupied by a single-story commercial building until it was demolished earlier this month. The Dongan Hills station on the Staten Island Railway is three blocks away.
In March, renderings of the Turkevi Center appeared, a planned mission, consulate, and residential tower for the Republic of Turkey. Now the Turkish consulate has filed applications for the 35-story development at 821 First Avenue, at the corner of 46th Street.
Japanese budget hotel operator Toyoko Inn Co. is planning a huge hotel in Long Island City. The company has filed applications for a 50-story hotel—its first one in the U.S.—at 24-09 Jackson Avenue, between 45th Avenue and 23rd Street.
The 23-story, 120-unit mixed-use building under development at 56 Fulton Street, in the Financial District, is now a floor away from topping out. The structure can be seen in a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The project will eventually encompass 128,540 square feet. It will feature 5,865 square feet of ground-floor retail space, followed by 120 rental apartments. The units will range from studios to two-bedrooms, twenty percent (24 units) of which will rent through the affordable housing lottery. The Parkland Group and Socius Development Group are developing. Goldstein, Hill, & West Architects are behind the architecture. Completion is expected next year.
Property owner Feil Organization is now clearing out a majority of the 14-story, 80,000-square-foot commercial building at 140 West 57th Street, along “Billionaires’ Row” in Midtown. The third through 14th floors are possibly getting a condominium conversion, the New York Post reported, although plans are not yet confirmed. The space could also get an office renovation or a hotel conversion, but plans for apartments have already been drawn up and are apparently further along. The three-level Morton Williams supermarket, located along the street level, will be unaffected. The property is an individual landmark, which means any exterior alterations that go into a renovation or conversion must be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission.
