Three-Story, Three-Unit Residential Project Planned At 31-15 86th Street, Jackson Heights

TNE Buildings has filed applications for a three-story, three-unit residential building at 31-15 86th Street, in Jackson Heights, located one mile north of the 82nd Street-Jackson Heights stop on the 7 train. The new building will measure 3,448 square feet and the full-floor residential units should average 862 square feet apiece, indicative of rental apartments. Pirooz Soltanizadeh’s Jamaica-based Royal Engineering is the applicant of record. The irregularly-shaped 3,383-square-foot plot of land is currently occupied by a single-story rowhouse. Demolition permits have not yet been filed.

Developer Planning Residential Tower At 203-215 East 38th Street, Midtown East

BLDG Management has acquired the three properties spanning 211-215 East 38th Street, in Midtown East, for $36.7 million, which reportedly completes a development assemblage that also includes the two buildings at 203-209 East 38th Street. The developer plans to demolish the entire assemblage to make way for a new residential tower with ground-floor retail space, according to The Real Deal. The site measures 17,944 square feet, which means it can accommodate up to 179,440 square feet of development potential. Other details, including the architect have not been disclosed. What must first be demolished is a two-story brick structure, three four- to five-story tenement buildings, and a five-story parking garage.

New Look At 65-Story Residential Tower Nearing Completion At 252 East 57th Street, Midtown East

YIMBY last checked in on the 65-story, 268-unit residential tower being built at 252 East 57th Street, in Midtown East, back in October of 2015, when the structure topped out at 715 feet above street level. Since then, glass installation has been rapidly underway to encapsulate the residential interiors, which will eventually contain a total of 93 condominiums and 175 rental apartments. YIMBY now has close-up renderings of the 632,828-square-foot tower.

42-Story, 362-Unit Mixed-Use Tower Tops Out At 1 West End Avenue, Lincoln Square

Back in November, YIMBY brought you a construction update on the 42-story, 362-unit mixed-use building underway at 1 West End Avenue, in the Lincoln Square section of the Upper West Side. At the time, the structure was at least 25 floors above street level, but now the building has topped out, as seen in photos by Tectonic (h/t Curbed). The new building encompasses 932,780 square feet and will contain retail space, in addition to 116 below-market rate rental units, within its six-story base. The tower portion will feature 246 condominium units. Glass installation is currently underway and the stone cladding of the podium appears largely complete. Silverstein Properties and Elad Group are the developers. Pelli Clarke Pelli is the design architect and Goldstein, Hill & West Architects is the architect of record. Completion is expected in 2017.
