Property owner Larry Cerullo has filed applications for a six-story, three-unit mixed-use building at 40-19 27th Street, in the Queens Plaza section of Long Island City. The project will measure 8,291 square feet in total, with 2,000 square feet of manufacturing space planned on the ground and mezzanine levels, 1,275 square feet of commercial space on the first floor, followed by 4,018 square feet of residential space on the floors above. The units will average 1,339 square feet apiece, which means condos are probably in the works. Bluarch Architecture is designing. An existing two-story house must first be demolished.
One of the last large, vacant lots in central Harlem is about to become an apartment building.

It was way back in September of 2014 that YIMBY reported on filings for a new residential building at 38-46 West 33rd Street (a.k.a. 38 West 33rd Street), in Midtown South. Then in June of 2015, we revealed a rendering of the project. In September, the Torkian Group development got financed by a $105 million loan. Now, the project’s scope is slightly bigger and construction is underway, which we can see in a pair of photos sent to us by our friend Tectonic.
Back in November, XIN Development, the U.S. branch of Beijing-based Xinyuan Real Estate, entered into contract to purchase the development site at 615 Tenth Avenue, between West 44th and 45th Streets in Hell’s Kitchen. Now, the developer has closed on the site for $57.5 million, and a mixed-use building with up to 90 condominium units is planned, according to The Real Deal. It will include mostly one- and two-bedroom residential units, as well as 20,000 square feet of retail space. The property is currently home to a Hess Express gas station, which must first be removed.
Over the summer, foundation work began on Ekstein Development’s nine-story, 86-unit residential building at 25-19 43rd Avenue, in Long Island City’s Court Square neighborhood.

The 90,173 square-foot project will have 68,145 square feet of residential space and is being designed by GF55 Partners. Dubbed Dutch LIC, the residential units will be condominiums, ranging from studios to two-bedrooms. Completion is currently expected in January of 2017.
