Property owner Saul Deutsch has filed applications for a three-story, two-unit residential building at 2137 58th Street, in Mapleton, located four blocks from the Avenue N stop on the F train. The structure will measure 9,636 square feet. One residential unit will be located on the ground floor, while the second unit will span the second and third floors. If the residential space is divided as such, the ground-floor unit should measure 2,441 square feet, while the upper unit should measure 4,878 square feet. The building will also include storage space in the cellar and an off-street parking spot. Douglas Pulaski’s Brooklyn-based Bricolage Designs is the architect of record. Two attached, two-story homes must first be demolished.

5 Pointz-Replacing Two-Towered, 1,115-Unit Mixed-Use Project Rises to Street Level at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City

Back in July of 2014, YIMBY revealed renderings of the two-towered, 1,115-unit mixed-use development underway at 22-44 Jackson Avenue, located in the Court Square section of Long Island City. Following the demolition of the 5 Pointz warehouse, excavation began in August of 2015 for the new buildings, followed by foundation work in November later that year. Now, a portion of the site closest to Jackson Avenue is at street level and beginning to rise, as seen by photos via Curbed NY and The Court Square Blog. The northern and southern towers, which will be connected by a common two-story base, will rise 48 and 41 stories respectively.

City Council Rejects Plans for Eight-Story, 200-Bed Nursing Home at 141 Conover Street, Red Hook

Back in December of 2015, renderings were revealed of the eight-story, 200-bed nursing home planned at 141 Conover Street, in Red Hook. The proposed project, by Oxford Nursing Home, was to measure 157,500 square feet and feature an urgent care center, but it also required an individual rezoning through the city’s Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP) process. Yesterday, the project reached the City Council Review step, but it was disapproved in a 48-0 vote by the full council, according to Crain’s. Unfortunately, this means the project is officially dead. Concerns raised at the vote included the unfavorable change in zoning from manufacturing to residential. Also, the site is located in a Flood Zone-A area, which some said would pose a threat to seniors living inside the building.

The project is One West End, located at 1 West End Avenue, which is at the northwest corner with West 59th Street. It features a large cantilevered portion, which has started to grow, and we have photos of the work courtesy of our friend Tectonic.
