The residential high-rise at 23-10 Queens Plaza South in Long Island City, also known as 23-01 42nd Road, has reached its final height of 481 feet, beating the 429-foot-tall Linc LIC for the title of the second tallest skyscraper in Queens.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings of the Chetrit Group’s planned residential redevelopment of the former Mary Immaculate Hospital campus at 150-13 89th Avenue, in Jamaica. The project includes the addition of 324 residential units, but right across the street, the same developer is first building an unassociated eight-story, 59-unit apartment building that measures 45,606 square feet. Located at 152-09 88th Avenue, two blocks from the Parsons Boulevard stop on the E and F trains, the structure is currently five stories above street level, according to Commercial Observer. It recently received an $11 million construction loan. Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is designing both of Chetrit’s projects.
Earlier this year, construction wrapped up on the first phase of Long Island City’s Hunters Point South mega-development, which includes two residential towers with a total of 925 affordable units, plus a 1,100-seat school and a waterfront park. The city is now moving forward to build the infrastructure needed for the project’s second phase, and Curbed reports excavation work is well underway. The second phase will include, but is not limited to, a 1,193-unit mixed-income residential building, which is to be developed by TF Cornerstone and Selfhelp Community Services. Thousands of additional residential units are also in the works, along with retail and community space. Thomas Balsley Associates, Weiss/Manfredi, and ARUP are designing the public park that will eventually line the waterfront. The park and infrastructure work is expected to be complete by 2018.
Brooklyn-based SBENY Holdings LLC has filed applications for a five-story, 27-unit mixed-use building at 103 Lee Avenue, in southern Williamsburg. That’s four blocks south of the Marcy Avenue J/M/Z stop. The project will measure 31,022…
In late 2014, YIMBY brought you conceptual renderings of the possible mixed-use tower that could rise at 1710 Broadway, between West 54th and 55th Street in Midtown, and now Extell Development is teaming up with C&K Properties to build a 60-story condo-hotel tower. Extell paid roughly $247 million for a 39 percent stake in the project, according to The Real Deal. Retail space will likely be included in the planned tower, which could be as large as 370,000 square feet, although additional air rights may be used which would increase the project’s size. A six-story, 83,000 square-foot office building must first be demolished.
