A decade ago, the New York City Housing Authority emptied out 22 decaying tenement buildings on the south side of 114th Street in central Harlem, sending residents to public housing elsewhere in the city. Those long-vacant buildings, part of Randolph Houses, have now been renovated and filled with residents, and workers have begun revamping 14 brownstones on the north side of the block.

Brooklyn-based Agora Development Group has filed applications for a five-story, five-unit residential building at 210 Jackson Street, in northern Williamsburg. The project will measure 6,066 square feet and its full-floor apartments should average 1,000 square feet apiece, indicative of condominiums. Oscar M. Fuertes’s Huntington, N.Y.-based architecture firm is the architect of record. The 2,500-square-foot lot is occupied by a two-story townhouse. Demolition permits were filed in December.
Construction has topped out on the 10-story, 428-unit mixed-use building under development at 30-02 39th Avenue, in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City. Progress on the structure, including façade installation, can be seen thanks to photos posted to the YIMBY Forums. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 413,138 square feet and rises 123 feet to its main roof. There will be 3,181 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, followed by 428 residential units across the ground through 10th floors. The apartments should average 679 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals. The Lightstone Group is the developer and Gerner, Kronick + Valcarcel (GKV Architects) is the architect. Completion is expected later this year.

Demolition permits were filed in November.
