An anonymous Delaware-based LLC has filed paperwork to amend previously granted building permits to convert the two-story commercial warehouse at 151 West Side Avenue, in Jersey City, into a 119-unit residential building. The existing warehouse is located between Fulton and Woodlawn avenues on Jersey City’s West Side. Part of the warehouse would be demolished, Jersey Digs reported. The project would also contain 118 off-street parking spaces. The city’s Zoning Board of Adjustment, which originally approved applications for a 116-unit conversion in the spring, must approve the changes. A hearing will be held on December 15.
In the spring, YIMBY unveiled new renderings for 70 Vestry Street, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed condo project under construction by the West Side Highway in Tribeca. Now we have a construction update on the 14-story building, courtesy of prolific photographer Tectonic.
Construction is three stories above street level on the eight-story, 83-unit residential building under development at 14-07 Broadway, located on the corner of 14th Street western Astoria. Progress on construction can be seen thanks to a photo posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project, dubbed The Baron, will encompass 107,488 square feet and rise 80 feet above street level, not including bulkhead elements. The condominium residential units should average 878 square feet apiece. Lions Group is the developer and Raymond Chan’s Flushing-based architecture firm is responsible for the design. An anticipated completion date is unknown, but late 2017 seems reasonable.
A Queens-based property owner has filed applications for four three-story, three-unit residential buildings at 157-12 through 157-18 65th Avenue, located on the corner of Parsons Boulevard in Pomonok, Queens.

Across all four buildings, the full-floor apartments should average 1,028 square feet apiece, indicative of family-sized configurations.

Permits were filed to raze the structure in August.
