New York City is a land of skyscrapers, but we don’t often find ourselves looking up. But there is something neat to check out if you find yourself up in East Harlem.
Back in October of 2015, schematic drawings surfaced for the planned 15-story, 43-unit residential project at 41-32 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. A rendering of the new 43,808-square-foot building is now available, and Commercial Observer is reporting the developer, Hakimian Organization, has secured $15.5 million in construction financing. The residential units will be rental apartments and should average 800 square feet apiece. Amenities include private storage spaces, storage for 23 bikes in the cellar, a gym, and 1,131 square feet of rooftop recreational space. Robert Bianchini’s Forest Hills-based ARC Architecture + Design Studio is the architect of record, and David Howell Design is responsible for the interiors. Construction is underway and completion is expected in early 2017.
Brooklyn-based Cipco Developers has filed applications for two six-story, seven-unit residential buildings at 299-301 Wallabout Street, in the Broadway Triangle section of Williamsburg, located a block from the Lorimer Street stop on the J/M trains. Each structure will measure 10,165 square feet and individual residential should average 1,452 square feet. Larger, family-sized apartments are in the works here, likely to accommodate the neighborhood’s Hasidic Jewish population. Both structures will be topped by penthouse levels, and a total of six parkings spaces and 20 bicycle storage spaces will be located on the ground and cellar levels. Hahram Tehrani’s Jamaica-based BTE Design Services is the applicant of record. A 60-foot-wide, single-story warehouse must first be demolished.

The 40-foot-wide corner lot at 54th Avenue is currently occupied by a single-story, single-family house. Demolition permits have not yet been filed. Hui Zeng’s Bayside-based ABC Engineering is the applicant of record.
