Long Island-based Gagandeep Singh has filed applications for five small residential buildings at 710-718 East 221st Street, in Williamsbridge, located a block north of the 219th Street stop on the 2 and 5 trains. At 710 East 221st Street, a four-story, eight-unit building is planned, with average units measuring a rental-sized 622 square feet apiece. At tax lot nos. 712 to 718, a row of four, smaller two-story buildings will line the street, each containing two residential units. All of the smaller buildings will boast large, full-floor apartments that average roughly 1,750 square feet in size. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record, and permits were filed in September to demolish the existing two-story house.
People are already living at Halcyon, HFZ Capital Group’s 123-unit development at 305 East 51st Street in Midtown East, but construction is still incomplete. The retail space along Second Avenue is still being built, as are the 32nd and 33rd floor duplex penthouse units. The lobby, however, was recently completed and YIMBY got a look at it, a fourth floor model unit, and the views from one of the penthouses.
A five-story apartment building may replace a little 1910s wood frame house at 27-15 27th Street in Astoria. New building applications were filed last week to build 10 apartments on the site between Newtown and 30th Avenues, a few blocks south of the Astoria Boulevard stop on the N/Q trains.
41-21 28th Street has risen to its third level, on its way to its final height of 185 feet. The project, developed by All Year Management, will house 166 residential units spread across 126,718 square feet.
This past summer, the 11-story, six-unit condominium project at 25 Great Jones Street/22 Bond Street, in NoHo, received construction financing, and now work is underway, EV Grieve reports. The 14-story structure – what was once a stalled-out hotel project – is currently being horizontally expanded to sit flush with Great Jones’ street wall. Floors 12 through 14 will eventually be removed, but that demolition work has not yet begun. Although the block-thru development fronts Great Jones, BKSK Architects designed a four-story steel façade for Bond Street. Second Development Services and Richport Group are developing.
