Gene Kaufman’s creations are normally seen within the realm of hospitality development, but sometimes, the architect also designs residential buildings. Today, YIMBY has a fresh rendering for the firm’s project under construction at 1050 Sixth Avenue, and the latest photos from Tectonic show that the building is about to top out.
Back in November of 2015, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 32-65 107th Street, on the corner of Northern Boulevard, in Queens’ East Elmhurst neighborhood. Today, we have the first renderings for the project, which is being designed by Flushing-based Lu Ning Architecture, PLLC.
A single-story laundromat in Bedford-Stuyvesant may soon be demolished to make way for an 11-story building. The developer for the project, at 1618 Fulton Street, is Brooklyn-based FAC Fulton Street Housing Development Fund Corporation. The site is just two blocks away from the Kingston-Throops Ave station for the A and C train, as well as one block away from Fulton Park, a block-long green space with its own dog park.
A church in Far Rockaway, Queens, is about to be razed to make way for a mixed-use building. Permits for an eight-story structure have been submitted for 1414 Central Avenue, six blocks away from the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue Subway station, at the end of the A train. Kingspoint Heights Development is the developer, and the project would be built on the site of the Community Church–the Nazarene.
Permits have been filed for a new residential building next to the Flushing Bay waterfront. An anonymous company is developing the four-story project, at 32-17 112th Street. The site is a one-mile walk to the Mets stadium, which is next to the expansive Flushing Meadows Corona Park. The closest subway station is in that same area, Mets Willets Point station, serviced by the 7 train.
