Yanling Yang is listed as the owner behind both the applications.
Construction is nearing the finish line on Long Island City‘s Skyline Tower, a 778-foot-tall residential skyscraper and the current holder of the title of the tallest structure in the outer boroughs. Nearly all of the reflective glass curtain wall has been installed on the 68-story building, with only the first two floors and the decorative crown awaiting the final cladding. Located at 23-15 44th Drive, the tower is designed by Hill West Architects and developed by United Construction & Development Group, FSA Capital, and Risland US Holdings LLC. Modern Spaces is the exclusive marketing and sales agency for the 802 residences, which are designed by Whitehall Interiors. The project is expected to cost $1 billion.
YIMBY passed by the site of 27-49 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, which is supposed to be a 146-foot-tall residential building. However construction progress remains paused around the halfway mark. The 4,000-square-foot site rests among a number of taller surrounding skyscrapers and would be a modest addition to the neighborhood. Designed by Raymond Chan Architect and developed by ARCFE, work started nearly two years ago and is planned to, hopefully, top out as a 14-story superstructure with 9,873 of residential space split among 37 homes. iX Construction is the general contractor.
Construction has topped out at 249 East 50th Street, a 15-story residential building in Turtle Bay, Manhattan. Designed by Issac & Stern Architects and developed by Tun Kyaw, the building stands 151 feet tall and will span 50,000 feet.
Construction is complete and tenants have begun moving into The Kent House, a seven-story mixed-use building at 187 Kent Avenue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Located between North 3rd Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, the project is designed by Diego Aguilera Architects P.C. and developed by CW Realty Management, which purchased the site for $43 million. The 140,036-square-foot structure contains 96 homes.
