Renderings Revealed For 12-Story Mixed-Use Proposal At 107-18 70th Road, Forest Hills

News broke earlier this month that a developer is looking to build a 12-story mixed-use building at 107-18 70th Road, in Forest Hills, and renderings of the project have since surfaced. According to DNAinfo, the new building is being designed by Morali Architects. As previously reported, the 120-foot-tall structure would require a variance from the city as zoning currently only allows for new developments of up to 80 feet. The developer, who remains anonymous, is planning to transfer air rights to the site, which is currently occupied by a strip of single-story restaurants, known as “Restaurant Row.” The project would have ground-floor retail space with new restaurants and residential units on the upper floors. A tentative completion date is being pegged at 2019.

Developers Plan Condo Conversion Of Eight-Story Building At 164 West 74th Street, Upper West Side

Prime Rok Real Estate and Greystone Property Development have purchased the eight-story, 33,000-square-foot building at 164 West 74th Street, on the Upper West Side, for $28 million. According to Commercial Observer, the new owners are planning to convert the building, which is currently Phoenix House’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, into 14 to 18 condominium units. As currently proposed, the structure’s façade will be lightly restored, the rear will be partially demolished, and the interior will be gut-renovated. Barry Rice Architects is designing the conversion, but any alterations to the property will have to be approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, as it’s located within the Upper West Side-Central Park West Historic District.
