The forest of high-rise towers in Long Island City is about to get a modest addition. New building applications have been filed for a seven-story, mixed-use project at 37-27 31st Street, beneath the elevated N/Q trains and just north of Sunnyside Yards.
Long Island-based property owner Ijaz Ahmad has filed applications for a five-story, 10-unit mixed-use building at 3802 White Plains Road, in Williamsbridge, located directly below the 219th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The project will measure a total of 11,491 square feet and includes 3,470 square feet of medical offices across the ground and cellar levels. The residential units will begin on the second floor and should average roughly 800 square feet apiece. The building will be topped by a rooftop recreational space. Hackjong Choi’s TriBeCa-based Beyond Arch is the applicant of record.
Back in May, YIMBY reported on applications for a 21-story, 71-unit mixed-use building at 145 Madison Avenue, between East 31st and 32nd Streets in Midtown South. According to DNAinfo, Kahen Properties will rent 21 of the residential units at below-market rates, which would satisfy the inclusionary housing bonus and increase the project’s allowable FAR. The latest filings call for a 59,085 square-foot structure, which includes 2,779 square feet of retail on the ground floor and residential units averaging 793 square feet each. The Stephen B. Jacobs Group is the architect of record. Permits have been approved to demolish the existing six-story commercial building.
Yesterday, we told you about the progress on a rather modest Durst Organization development on the southwest corner of Eleventh Avenue and West 58th Street. Today, we’re bringing you and update on a significantly bigger project around the corner on the south side of West 57th Street between Eleventh Avenue and Twelfth Avenue.
Earlier this year, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 21-unit residential building at 17 Convent Avenue, between West 127th and 128th Streets in Manhattanville. Now a schematic drawing has been posted on the site of the 23,537 square-foot project, per Harlem+Bespoke. Residential units will average 1,121 square feet apiece, which means condominiums are probably in the works. Permits were granted by the Department of Buildings this past November and completion is scheduled for late 2016. Kane Ventures is the developer and Chelsea-based Alexander Compagno is the architect of record.
