Back in June, YIMBY brought you news of a 28-story mixed-use tower planned for the site of the former Paragon Paint Factory at 45-40 Vernon Boulevard in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City. We know its 295 feet will shine and thanks to an interview with SHoP principal architect Gregg Pasquarelli, we know more about what will become of the factory building itself, which will connect to the new tower.
A six-story condo building is set to replace a 19th century townhouse at 162 South Portland Avenue in Fort Greene, and YIMBY has a rendering of the project planned near Barclays Center.
Back in October, YIMBY brought you an update on the nine-story, 13-unit residential building topping out at 290 West Street, in TriBeCa. Since then, the structure has received its cladding, as seen in these photos courtesy of Tectonic. The project’s condominiums range from 2,241 to 3,165 square feet, and the top three penthouses each have private outdoor space. Adjmi & Andreoli served as the design architect, while VE Equities is the developer. Only two units have yet to be sold, and move-ins can probably be expected by early 2016.
The LIC Marriott and Residential Tower at 29-07 Queens Plaza North is effectively complete on the exterior, and the last glass panes have now been installed on its eastern facing facade. At 31 stories tall, it is now among the five tallest topped-out buildings in central Long Island City.
Moran Machtey, doing business as an anonymous LLC, has filed applications for a seven-story, 16-unit residential building at 595 New York Avenue, in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, five blocks from the Sterling Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. The project will measure 10,966 square feet and includes a small 356 square-foot community facility on the ground floor. Residential units are to begin on the second floor and will average a rental-sized 667 square feet apiece. Bluarch Architecture is the applicant of record. An existing two-story brick home and an adjacent dilapidated single-story structure will have to be demolished.
