A few blocks northeast of the 63rd Drive stop on the E, M, and R trains, building applications have been filed for a new three-story development, on the site of two existing single family homes. The new structure will span 5,003 square feet, which will be divided between six units, for an average size of slightly over 800 square feet. That means rentals are likely. John Chen of John Chen Architect, PLLC is the project’s architect, and Regina Zhou of Rego Park Partner LLC is the site’s developer.
The Midtown supertall boom may be focused on 57th Street, but a few blocks to the south, the tower that started the frenzy is finally reaching into the skyline. 53 West 53rd Street, formerly known as Torre Verre and rising adjacent to the Museum of Modern Art, is now well over halfway to its eventual 1,050-foot pinnacle. The photos were posted by Streetscaper to the YIMBY Forums.
Applications have been filed with the Department of Buildings for a new eight-story building at 947 College Avenue, in the Bronx’s Fleetwood-Concourse Village neighborhood. Sion Hourizadeh of Sion Associates is listed as the architect, and the structure will measure 11,393 square feet in total, to be divided between 17 units. That translates into an average size of about 670 square feet, which is highly indicative of rentals. Gurwinder Singh of Kulwant Properties is listed as the developer.
Back in 2014, YIMBY sat down with the Mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, to discuss the latest happenings across the Hudson. The city’s skyline has been continuously changing since then, and YIMBY revisited similar topics once more in an interview with the Mayor this week.
Back in August of 2016, YIMBY reported on new building applications that were filed for a site off the corner of Evergreen Avenue and Jefferson Street, in Bushwick. Now, we have the reveal for the site, which is being designed by Joshua Felix of J Goldman Design/Beam Group.
