The Upper West Side doesn’t often see major new residential developments, especially of the affordable variety, which is why HPD’s plans for 145 West 108th Street, on behalf of the West Side Federation for Senior and Supportive Housing, are somewhat surprising. Dattner Architects will be designing, and today, YIMBY has the first images of what the two-building project will look like.
Permits have been filed for a new hotel at 2201 Neptune Avenue, in Coney Island. Guests will be ten blocks away from the D, F, N, and Q trains at the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue Station. The building will be located right on Coney Island Creek, providing guests with views of Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. SWA Architecture, a Manhattan-based firm, will design the seven-story structure.
Permits have been filed for a new building at the PS 129 Patricia Larkin School, located at 128-02 7th Avenue, in College Point, Queens. The proposal would be three stories tall, and located on the same campus, which takes up a whole city block. Whether it would be built at the expense of an existing structure or an open area is not yet clear.
Permits have been filed for a new 10-story residential building in the Bedford Park neighborhood of the Bronx, at 3188 Villa Avenue. The location is just three blocks away from the Mosholu Parkway subway station serviced by the 4 train, and two blocks away from Mosholu Parkway Park, an urban green space that connects the New York Botanical Garden with Van Cortlandt Park. Brooklyn-based Delacour, Ferrara & Church Architects will be responsible for the design.
Permits have been filed for a new four-story building at 104-14 Liverpool Street, in Jamaica, Queens. The building is being developed by the American Bengali Hindu Foundation, and will be their new house of worship. The project will be a big improvement from their current situation, which is located within an open-air tent.
