The affordable housing lottery has launched for 10-47 Beach 21st Street, a ten-story mixed-use building in Far Rockaway, Queens. Designed by Urban Architectural Initiatives and developed by The Community Builders, the structure yields 224 residences. Available on NYC Housing Connect are 200 units for residents at 40 to 100 percent of the area median income (AMI), ranging in eligible income from $20,400 to $148,000.
Façade work is nearing completion on 601 West 29th Street, a 695-foot-tall residential skyscraper in Hudson Yards and number 19 on our year-end construction countdown. Designed by FXCollaborative and developed by Douglaston Development, the 60-story structure is also known as “Tower A” in a two-building development alongside 606 West 30th Street, which has yet to begin rising over Midtown, Manhattan. 601 West 29th Street will yield 703 market-rate and 235 affordable housing residences, 50,000 square feet of amenity space, and 15,000 square feet of retail space. Levine Builders is constructing the property, which is bound by Eleventh Avenue to the east, West 29th Street to the south, and West 30th Street to the north.
Permits have been filed for a 22-story, mixed-use two-tower development at 395 Carroll Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Located between Bond Street and Nevins Avenue, the lot is adjacent to the Gowanus Canal. The R train at the Union Street subway station and the F and G trains at the Carroll Street station are within walking distance of the site. Rafael Rabinowitz of Galaxy Developers LLC is listed as the owner behind the permit, which was filed as one building with two separate towers and a combined six-story podium.
At number 20 on our year-end countdown is a pair of mixed-use residential skyscrapers at 495 Eleventh Avenue in Midtown West, Manhattan. Designed by FXCollaborative with Gene Kaufman Architects as the architect of record, the 589,842-square-foot project consists of a 680-foot-tall, 57-story edifice paired with a slightly shorter 653-foot-tall, 56-story sibling that will rise along Eleventh Avenue between West 39th and West 40th Streets, next to the Jakob K. Javits Center. NYC Economic Development Corporation is listed as the owner behind the applications that were filed back in late October.
Work is continuing to wrap up on 115 East 55th Street, an 18-story residential building in Midtown East. Designed by SLCE Architects for Zeckendorf Development, the 185-foot-tall reinforced concrete structure will yield 71,961 square feet and 58 units. CM& Associates Construction Management, LLC is the general contractor for the property, which is located on a relatively small site between Lexington and Park Avenues, directly to the east of Norman Foster’s 425 Park Avenue.
