YIMBY has featured two stories on the new Census data so far: the first on the actual numbers, and the second on how New York City is growing far faster than anticipated, already almost reaching its projected population for 2020.

Late last year, YIMBY reported that a new seven-story and 42-unit building was coming to 38-11 31st Street in Long Island City, designed by Morali Architects. In February, YIMBY covered a similar filing for 36-27 31st Street by the same architect. And now we can reveal both of the buildings, thanks to renderings sent along by Morali.
YIMBY has the first look at a boxy six-story condo development in the works for a big vacant lot at 160 West Street, near the waterfront in Greenpoint.

Developers have long avoided building under the elevated tracks in Bushwick, but the lure of cheaper property not far from Williamsburg has pulled in buyers looking to cash in on the neighborhood’s swiftly rising rents.
